PreSonus CDL12P Constant Directivity Loudspeaker

What’s so great about constant directivity?

Like the CDL12, CDL12P is the result of years of research and development, combining the best attributes of point source and line array technology into a unique patent-pending design. Based on the Constant-Directivity Two-Way Loudspeaker System design presented at the 143rd AES Convention in New York by Hugh Sarvis and Don Keele, the CDL12P radiates a highly focused pattern with consistent SPL throughout the frequency response range, both on- and off-axis. The result is clear, articulate speech intelligibility and natural music reproduction.

A unique look with a unique result.

Each CDL12P 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 dispersion pattern always radiates directly from the center of the CDL12P. This is true whether the CDL12P is used individually on a tripod speaker stand or as part of an acoustically-coupled vertical array with up to six enclosures. Because both the highs and lows emanate from the same point, they arrive at listeners’ ears at the exact same time—meaning the CDL12P powered loudspeakers don’t create any smearing in their crossover frequencies, ensuring better intelligibility throughout the frequency response range.
