New double-15 subwoofer shakes up Community's XLT500 Series

ANAHEIM, CA, January 18, 2001--A versatile, high-efficiency device which brings extended bass response and seismically-proportioned wallop to any of Community's XLT500 full-range loudspeaker systems, the XLT509 subwoofer will make its inaugural appearance at this year's Winter NAMM.

Accountable in no small part for the chest-crushing low-end performance originating from behind the enclosure's ported faceplate are a pair of Ferrofluidcooled 15-inch transducers. Capable of producing 130 dB SPL peaks between 40 Hz and 150 Hz, with maximum input rated at 400W RMS, 1000W program, the trapezoidal subwoofer is rated at four ohms with a sensitivity of 96 dB SPL at 1 W/1 m.

Backed by a five-year limited warranty, the XLT509 is internally safeguarded by the vigilant eye of Community's newly-improved IntelliSenseTM circuitry and PowerMeterTm LED indicators to insure that peak performance levels can be reached and maintained without risk of damage to system components. Centrally located on the front panel, the PowerMeter LEDs flash green to indicate signal presence, yellow to warn that the system is entering its first stages of protection, and red to show that full protection has been activated. Within protection mode, IntelliSense automatically attenuates input levels to within a safe range. Once gain has been reduced, the circuit resets itself, thereby restoring full power and operation.

Measuring 34 inches high by 20 inches wide at the front and 18 inches deep, the XLT509 enclosure is made from a newly-developed sandwich-core plywood which is rugged yet extremely lightweight. Three external mounting points, a stand adapter, corner protectors, recessed handles, and a durable black carpet finish are included with the package, while both a professional-grade interlocking connector and dual 1/4-inch jacks are provided at a rear-mounted cast metal input panel. A short pole for stand mounting is also provided as standard equipment, which can be utilized to facilitate easy use with the XLT500 or XLT530 to create a complete, freestanding system.
