In spite of its small stature, the CPD W2 delivers a very deep, powerful yet clean, and dry sound. The speaker cabinet is a classic-reflex design - 2x15” – driven by a 1400Wrms PWM amplifier and has performance of the highest quality. What makes the CPD W2 unique is the highly durable long excursion speaker with a 100 mm voice coil and reinforced cone, plus directivity for frequencies in the range of 40Hz: the 2 ventilation ports have a large exponential cross-sectional contour that has particularly high efficiency and minimal distortion through minor losses at the tunnel openings. The CPD W2’s small size makes it especially useful for venues where little space on the stage is available, or where it must be integrated into a stage-portal. With an M20 threaded pole mount, the CPD W2 becomes an ideal stand base for many of the KS AUDIO CPD mid-high cabinets, we recommend the CPD 10 or CPD 12, and this brings them to the ideal height. Mono sum as a standard, not an option.
The speaker cabinet construction is, like any KS AUDIO system, built from birch plywood with an extremely robust charcoal colored Polyurethane coating. Optionally, finish can be changed to any desired color from the RAL color charts. Handles, M20 pole mount, and protective grill, with or without acoustic foam, are further features of this premium product. The rear mounted 2-way DSP-controller / PWM amplifier operates very efficiently without the need of a – sometimes distractingly loud - cooling fan. The FIR crossover and filter is specially matched to the driver, with corresponding compressors and limiters to ensure safe operation. The electronically balanced NF in/out section is equipped with 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.
With 2-Channel redundancy, the volume control allows for adjustment with a range of +/-9dB. Another special feature is the DSP Controller with its integrated Delay. Which allows On-site adjustment, or the creation of a focused directivity Bass-array without any additional equipment. The limiter prevents overloading and provides for frequency response correction.
All functions of the DSP controllers can be adjusted and controlled over the Ethernet network. The most important parameters are presented on an LED display and can be adjusted directly on the unit.
