Coda Audio targets KTV market with Soundbar
Promising an all-in-one 2.1 sound system within a single shallow enclosure, Germany’s Coda Audio is reaching out to the karaoke market with its KTV Soundbar. The box is intended for mounting beneath a video screen and measures 1,325mm in width.
Inside the enclosure is a long excursion 12-inch ultra-low distortion cone driver covering 35Hz to 200Hz. The 3-inch voice coil is 32mm high, reportedly delivering linear excursion of 22mm/pp at consistent magnetic force. Three aluminium shorting rings are also included to reduce inter-modulation distortion; minimising induction variation whilst reducing thermal compression.
The left and right channels are served by double 8-inch/1.75-inch coaxial drivers, with the 8-inch cone covering the 200Hz to 1.8kHz range and the HF drivers covering 1.6kHz to 20kHz. While the Soundbar is intended for near-field applications, it also includes M6 flying points for suspension if required.
Also new from the manufacturer is the U4, a double 18-inch subwoofer described as offering ‘immense headroom’ and designed to work exclusively with Coda’s Linus amplifiers as an integrated solution for DSP control, amplification, network remote control and diagnostics. It is being aimed at nightclub installs as well as more general mobile and installation applications.
Inside the enclosure, a 32mm high, 4-inch voice coil reportedly delivers an excursion of 20 mm/pp at consistent magnetic force. The assembly also boasts a carbon-fibre cone plus three aluminium shorting rings to reduce intermodulation distortion. According to the manufacturer, the U4 is an ideal sub-extension to for its G-Series, D-Series, CUE-Series and TiRAY systems, extending the system performance down to 30Hz.
