The CPD 1M complements the KS AUDIO CPD-Series of DSP controlled active self-powered systems and its extremely compact wedge-shape, resulting in the highest sound pressure level even in the lower frequency range while simultaneously having the lightest weight possible. The DSP-Controller operates with KS Audio FIR-Filter technology for true impulse-correct reproduction of audio and increased resistance to feedback. There are two integrated amplifiers – 400W for the 10”- low-mid speaker and 40W for the 1” HF driver - with a peak performance of 800W!
The CPD 1M horn is designed for normal floor monitor use. However, because of its square dimensions the unit can be used in a 90° turned assembly. Therefore the CPD 1M also has the ability to be used on stands.
The electronics are comprised of a switch mode power supply with Power-factor-Correction, a “cold” PWM amplifier for low-mid performance, and an analog bipolar amplifier with the best audio characteristics for the mid-high compression driver. The 10”- low-mid speaker is equipped with a very powerful, yet light, Neodymium-Magnet. The 1” compression tweeter has a 3” ring membrane made of Mylar that has a distinctly reduced distortion factor when compared to a Titanium membrane.
With CPD 1M, KS AUDIO has responded to the demanding needs of the professional user with a modular self-powered loudspeaker with the highest audio quality combined with small footprint. There are many applications in which the CPD 1M can be used: Theatre, Live-stage Music, in large rooms or tents, as a delay system for long throw, or as a compact top usedwith any KS AUDIO subwoofer. We recommend the CPD B2 or the CPD W1 Sub.
The speaker cabinet construction is, like all KS AUDIO systems, built from birch plywood with an extremely durable PU-coating. All RAL colors available. A pole mount on the bottom of the cabinet and a protective steel grill, with or without acoustic foam, are further features of this premium product. The rear mounted 2-way DSP-controller / amplifier operates very efficiently without the need of a cooling fan. The FIR crossover and filter are specially matched to the drivers, with corresponding compressors and limiters to ensure safe operation. The electronically balanced inputs are f XLR F+M connectors. In addition to the power switch, the control panel also has a selectable digital volume / delay control to individually adjust for each venue and offers a digital delay reaching up to 40 m for decentralized PA systems.
The power supply on the CPD 1M operates on AC 117V or 230V. The starting current is electronically limited, also built-in PowerCon Connector as a standard.
