Audio announces the introduction of its CT Series loudspeakers, a
full range of sound reinforcement speakers able to produce extremely
high SPLs, with a wide dynamic range to meet the needs of todays
touring and fixed installation professionals. The CT Series offers a
variety of loudspeaker solutions for clubs and fixed installations,
as well as regional touring rigs and DJ applications.
Designed to provide professional
sound quality, extended frequency response, and extensive
power-handling capabilities, the CT Series is comprised of six
models: four trapezoidal-shaped enclosures, the CT1, CT2, CT3, and
CT4 subwoofer, and two floor monitors, the CT1m and CT3m.
The trapezoidal cabinets allow
arrays to be constructed more easily, while greatly reducing the
build-up of internal standing waves, to ensure a minimum of mid-bass
and mid-range coloration. The CT1 is a two-way speaker system
featuring a 1 x 15" woofer and 2" titanium compression
driver, with a frequency response of 48Hz-20kHz and crossover
frequency at 1600Hz. The CT2 is a three way speaker with a 1 x
15" woofer, 1 x 15" woofer/mid-range, and 2" titanium
compression driver. Both woofers combine below 300Hz, while only one
produces signal above 300Hz. The CT2 has a frequency response of
55Hz-20kHz and a crossover frequency of 300Hz low-mid/1700Hz
mid-high. Also a three-way speaker, the CT3 has a 1 x 15"
woofer, 1 x 8" mid-range driver, and 2" titanium
compression driver, with a frequency response of 53Hz-20kHz and
crossover frequencies of 500Hz low-mid/3700Hz mid-high. The CT4
subwoofer contains two 18" woofers, with a frequency response of 45Hz-1500Hz.
Two floor monitors round out the
CT Series loudspeakers: The CT1m employs a 1 x 12" woofer,
1" titanium compression driver and has a frequency response of
58Hz-18kHz. Crossover frequency is 2000Hz. The CT3m features 2 x
12" woofers, a 2" titanium compression driver, and has a
frequency response of 53Hz-18kHz, with a crossover frequency at
2000Hz. Utilizing B&C OEM transducers, CT Series speakers are
equipped with 600 watt continuous-rated woofers along with 140 watt continuous-rated
compression drivers. These are further enhanced by internal
crossover circuitry, which includes an innovative mid-range contour
switch (with HIGH and NORMAL settings) allowing the user to choose
between flat or slightly-attenuated mid-range frequencies to easily
adapt to a wide variety of sound reinforcement situations.
CT Series speakers may be driven
in full-range or bi-amp mode by simply plugging into the desired jack
on the input plate. Crest Audios protection circuit for mid and
high frequency drivers, a newly-designed feature that subtly
decreases signal level to the drivers and provides extra protection
against damage from longterm overpowering, is provided for both
full-range and bi-amp modes. In addition, connections via a
heavy-gauge aluminum input plate include Speakon input and thru
jacks, as well as an exclusive four-pole switching Speakon connector
for bi-amp operation.
Crests CT Series cabinets
are constructed of high-quality 3/4" seven-ply hardwood for
rigidity and warp-resistance. Recessed steel handles with comfortable
round hand grips provide increased mobility, while a heavy-gauge
metal grill with black powder-coat finish gives an added degree of protection.
The CT Series loudspeakers are
available in August, 2000 and are competitively priced.
