The single D.A.S. Event 208A is a powered, full-range, three-way line array module designed for professional live sound reinforcement applications. The speaker features three built-in Class-D amplifiers, providing 360W of power to the two 8" woofers and the 1.5" compression driver that combine to offer a frequency response of 75 Hz to 20 kHz and a peak SPL output of 132 dB. The two 8" woofers use a "twin-band" configuration, where each speaker operates in a specific frequency range. Advanced digital signal processing feeds the mid signal to only one of the two low-frequency drivers, while the other is rolled off. This technique eliminates off-axis interference between the drivers, enabling the Event Line Arrays to maintain optimal polar and frequency response characteristics throughout the low and low-mid operating ranges. The injected aluminum wave-guide provides a nominal 90º horizontal dispersion.
The rear panel of the speaker offers a line level XLR input and an XLR loop-thru output for connecting additional array modules. The integrated "Easy DSP" utilizes push-button combinations for adjusting to the number of array modules. Additionally, there is a down-fill preset button for simplifying long and short throw for down-fill applications. Two on-board limiters protect the electronics and drivers from overload, while an amp cover protects the electronics from the sun and rain.
The ISO-flex painted birch plywood enclosure utilizes two bar handles for ease in transport, while the steel grille provides ample protection to the speaker's drivers. A single array module can be placed on a quality speaker stand, while multiples can be used in ground-stack configurations. Up to 24 line array modules can be flown for the ultimate in large-scale sound reinforcement deployment. The D.A.S. Event 208A ships with a power cord.
