American Audio has introduced a self-powered 15-inch speaker that will lighten any performer’s gear-hauling load without lightening their wallets. The company has unveiled the DLS-15P self-powered speaker system, which successfully combines a 300-watt amplifier, professional 15” 2 way speaker, and a 3-channel mixer with EQ in an intelligently designed package.
The DLS-15P’s built-in amplifier system powers a booming die-cast woofer and high-compression 1.75-inch driver to deliver pristine sound with enough volume for just about any event. Best of all, with an extremely low suggested retail price of just $419.95, the DLS-15P offers DJs and bands a tremendous value for the dollar.
The DLS-15P 3-channel mixer section accepts XLR, ¼ inch and RCA line inputs. Three Microphone / Line inputs and even a stereo RCA input allow flexible input solutions for just about any situation. Treble, bass controls on the output and main volume controls (with a dedicated line out) let users balance the speaker’s overall output for optimum sound quality and maximum punch.
Trapezoidal in design, the versatile DLS-15P comes with floor brackets that allow it to double as a stage monitor. The unit can easily be flown or mounted on a speaker stand, making it ideal for both permanent installations and bands on the run.
“With all of its power and convenience, the DLS-15P offers a great value to anyone looking for a great sounding speaker system,” said Tom Freret, national sales manager for American Audio. “It’s the ultimate 15-inch, 2-way powered speaker—a must-have for anyone who has sweated through the hassles and headaches of incorporating a separate amp in their sound system and hauling it around from gig to gig.”
For added protection and convenience, the DLS-15P is housed in a lightweight ABS nylon fiber cabinet with an easy-to-carry, break-resistant handle. The unit measures 13.6”L x 16.5”W x 26.4”H and weighs only 61 lbs., so it not only travels well but also installs safely and easily.
To provide the ultimate in transport convenience, the DLS-15P fits into American Audio’s APX-B speaker bag (sold separately at $119.95 MSRP). A rugged gig bag with rollers, adjustable handle and heavy duty zipper, the APX-B was designed to make moving speakers a breeze.
The DLS-15P has a high sensitivity rating of 109 dB/m/w. It offers users the ability to switch between 120 volts and 220 volts when necessary.
