OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Full-Range, constant directivity loudspeaker.

The PreSonus® CDL12 is the result of years of research and development, combining the best attributes of point source and line array technology. The CDL12 radiates a highly focused pattern with consistent SPL throughout the frequency response range, both on- and off-axis. The result is clear, articulate speech and natural music reproduction.

A unique look and result

Each CDL12 consists of eight 2-inch drivers aligned in a segmented circular-arc high-frequency array centered in front of a 12-inch woofer. The output of the low-frequency driver travels from the same acoustic axis as the high-frequency array, so the pattern always radiates from the center of the CDL12. This is true whether the CDL12 is used individually on a tripod speaker stand or as part of an acoustically coupled vertical array. The CDL12 avoids near-field anomalies that can interfere with the sound quality of a traditional line array. This suits the CDL12 for a broader range of venue sizes, creating an immediate far-field response when the sound is projected from the center of the enclosure.

The eight 2-inch high-frequency drivers arc over a single 12-inch woofer, comparable to the coaxial driver configuration found on some better quality studio monitors. The result is superior sonic coherence across the entire venue, with no anomalies to compensate for via time-consuming room correction. Regardless of how many CDL12s you stack, you're working with a shared acoustic axis and non-turbulent sound propagation throughout the room.

Scalable vertical coverage.
The CDL12’s hybrid point source/line array design delivers focused sound with consistent SPL both on- or off-axis, making it excellent for mobile and installed applications. A dual-angle pole mount is provided, supporting the use of one or two enclosures when mounted on a tripod stand or atop the companion CDL18s subwoofer, allowing the system to adapt to varying audience sizes.

Onboard processing power.
The CDL12’s integrated PDA-1000 500W x 500W Class D power amplifier features onboard DSP presets to facilitate and simplify arrayed configurations. For more advanced applications, each CDL12 can be connected to a standard LAN network and remotely controlled using WorxControl software for macOS® and Windows®.

Dante® spoken here.
The locking Ethernet connection on the CDL12’s integrated PDA-1000 power amplifier also provides audio networking capability via Dante. Dante’s multi-channel digital media networking technology delivers near-zero latency and synchronization and has been adopted by many pro-audio manufacturers, facilitating the CDL12 loudspeaker’s interoperability with a wide range of equipment.

Now hear this.

The Constant Directivity design of the PreSonus CDL12 delivers exceptional performance and versatile configuration options in a visually stunning, compact form factor. Superior phase coherence and controlled dispersion result in an articulate, natural listening experience, making the CDL12 an outstanding choice for portable PA and installed sound applications. The CDL12 combines the directivity of a point-source design with the scalable coverage of a line array to create a unique loudspeaker that provides the flexibility demanded by modern sound reproduction applications.
