Envelop Your Entire Audience in Sound

Want to envelop your entire audience in a gorgeous panorama of sound? The CDL12 will make it happen. PreSonus describes this hybrid point source/line array speaker as “wide peripheral vision for your ears,”  Its eight 2″ drivers disperse high frequencies at an astonishing 120 degrees horizontally, and if that’s not enough, then you can build a 6-speaker array of CDL12s for symmetrical 120-degree x 120-degree dispersion. Experience a thunderous low-end thump, thanks to this speaker’s 12″ woofer, while 1,000 watts of Class D power exhibit remarkable headroom, explosive SPLs, and incredible dynamics. The CDL12 features built-in Dante connectivity, along with an impressive range of mounting options.

Constant directivity provides consistent, coherent sound

The CDL12’s patent-pending design combines the best of point source and line array technology. It houses eight 2″ drivers that are aligned in a segmented circular-arc high-frequency array. These transducers are centred around a single 12″ woofer. The output from these state-of-the-art drivers travels on the same acoustic axis, ensuring that the pattern always radiates from the centre of the CDL12. And when you stack multiple enclosures, the entire array maintains consistent centre-to-centre spacing among all the high- and low-frequency drivers, creating a seamless transition from one cabinet to the next. It also minimises comb filtering, maintaining a controlled 120-degree horizontal coverage pattern, while the vertical coverage is expanded by 20 degrees per speaker. That means a 6-speaker array of CDL12s delivers unprecedented dispersion of up to 120 degrees vertically and 120 degrees horizontally!

Customisable array presets for easy deployment

Whether you’re using it alone or in an array, setting up the CDL12 is a breeze, thanks to its onboard presets on the rear panel. If you’re building a larger array, then you simply connect each speaker to a standard LAN network and take command with Worx Control software running on your Mac or PC. With Worx Control, you benefit from speaker-management tools like compression, limiting, 800ms of delay, an 8-band EQ, and more. Performance monitoring indicators display temperature and signal levels remotely. You can use Worx Control to manage your speakers individually or as a group.

Built-in Dante connectivity supplies near-zero latency and synchronisation

The CDL12 boasts built-in Dante connectivity — a feature not found on many speakers in this class. Besides giving you near-zero latency and effortless synchronisation, this multichannel digital media networking technology is compatible with an endless range of equipment, making it easy to integrate the CDL12 into just about any installed sound environment. And it does it over a single locking Ethernet connection!
