DAS Audio reaches out to small applications with Event
The Event series of line array systems from DAS Audio is being targeted at small to medium sized applications, with the Spanish manufacturer promising ‘impressive value for end-users’. The range comprises two line arrays and a companion bass system, and is described as ideal for both permanent installation and mobile use.
The two line array options are the Event 208A and the Event 210A, both of which are three-way, powered enclosures housing double 8-inch and double 10-inch assemblies respectively. Also inside the boxes are single M-75 compression drivers and custom injected aluminium high frequency waveguides. Both models are powered by a three channel Class-D amplifier pushing 360W peak per-channel, with a rear panel offering Neutrik XLR and powerCON connectors, status LEDs and the manufacturer’s Easy-DSPTM interface.
Low-end is courtesy of the 218A double 18-inch sub which contains the manufacturer’s long-excursion LX series woofers. The front-loaded design is powered by a 3,600W peak Class-D amplifier and reportedly achieves a rated maximum peak SPL of 140dB. It also boasts a Cardioid Preset mode switch for easy set-up of pairs of systems in cardioid applications.
Other features include two balanced inputs (A-B) with stereo filtered output connections for satellite systems, a variable crossover ranging from 100Hz to 160Hz which can be defeated to offer stereo ‘loop thru’ connections, plus gain control and polarity reverse. All of the cabinets are constructed out of Baltic Birch plywood and finished in ISO-flex paint. Steel rigging hardware is also included as is a protective cover.
