The C 1 extends the KS AUDIO C Series of compact 2-way systems with its specific radiation characteristics HDSP and consistent acoustic pressure down to the low-frequency range, along with its minimum dimensions. Due to the high-capacity voice coils of the 10” speaker and the 1” driver, the C 1 can be operated with 500Wrms continuous output.
The waveguide construction in the mid-high frequency horn and its interaction with the low-mid speaker in the corresponding controller electronics is unique. The result is a radiation angle that widens out downwards, whereas the vertical curvature of the wavefront also continues in the crossover frequency range where it shows no declines at all. In the usual positions, the speaker therefore provides the same high-quality performance at close range as at a larger distance.
The 10”- long-excursion low-mid speaker comprises a powerful lightweight neodymium magnet. The ring diaphragm of the driver consists of a special film that generates significantly lower distortion than comparable titanium diaphragms. With the C 1, KS AUDIO offers the demanding user a universally applicable 2-way sound reinforcement speaker of the highest audio quality and in a highly compact format. There is practically no field of application where the C 1 cannot be applied successfully: sound reinforcement for theaters, live-music stages, comprehensive decentralized sound coverage for large rooms and tents, delay system for remote areas, or as a compact mid-high range system in combination with the CB18 active woofer of the SAT 3.
Like any KS AUDIO system, cabinet construction is made of birch multiplex and provided with an extremely robust anthracite PU coating. On request, the surface can be lacquered in any RAL colors. A protective steel grid with or without acoustic foam is another feature of this high-quality product.
The built-in connection plate on the back with two SPEAKON NL4 and passive crossover. On the bottom side there is a flange bushing for mounting of customary stand tubes. The MR C1 mounting frame is available for secure flying operations.
