dARTS Theater Intros 500 Series Active Loudspeakers and New Floor-to-Ceiling Bass Array – rAVe [PUBS]
dARTS Theater just introduced the dARTS 5000 series of active loudspeakers and the DCB410-SUB floor-to-ceiling bass array powered by the rack-mountable 350-watt mono-block subwoofer amplifier.
The dARTS 5000 series speakers have a new cabinet shape with a lightly textured matte-gloss black finish. New ribbon tweeters enable the dARTS audiophile-quality speakers to play up to 40 kHz frequency. The 5000 series will output up to 124 dB SPL for extremely loud, clear sound in larger spaces.
dARTS active speakers utilize DSP-based crossovers, equalization and time correction prior to amplification. All the woofers and tweeters are directly coupled to an amp channel, leaving nothing in the audio path to degrade the signal. This method feeds the speaker the purest signal from the source. Each speaker driver in the system is custom tuned to match within 0.5 dB of each other and each dARTS system is calibrated and aligned to a reference performance level. And once installed and calibrated, your room will sound like one of the best theaters in the world.
The nearly eight-foot-tall, 280 lb. DCB410 trapezoidal-shaped subwoofer is specifically designed for corner placements and includes a linear array of eight 10-inch active woofers. The cone area is equivalent to a 28” woofer. The DCB410-SUB provides tight uncolored bass and has an anechoic frequency response to 16 Hz with a max SPL @ 1M of 122 dB. The subwoofer can be used in front corners as a linear line array or all four corners as an active double-base line array where the rear corner subs help reduce unwanted room modes.
Each subwoofer system comes with a high-current mono-block amplifier that drives the DCB410-SUB. Each powerful 1-RU amplifier puts out 350-watt RMS with peak capability of 700-watt.
