Room-filling Line Array Sound Has Never Been so Accessible:
Want to envelop your entire audience in a gorgeous panorama of sound? The PreSonus CDL12P powered loudspeaker will make it happen. PreSonus describes this hybrid point source/line array speaker as “wide peripheral vision for your ears.” Its eight 2-inch drivers disperse high frequencies at an astonishing 120° horizontally. If that’s not enough, then you can build a 6-speaker array of CDL12Ps for 90° x 120° dispersion. Experience a thunderous low-end thump, thanks to this speaker’s 12-inch woofer, while 1,000 watts of Class D power exhibit remarkable headroom, explosive SPLs, and incredible dynamics. Complete with built-in DSP to optimize your system for any combination of speakers, you’ll be impressed with the flexibility and sonic excellence of the PreSonus CDL12P powered loudspeaker.
Constant directivity provides consistent, coherent sound:
The CDL12P’s patent-pending design combines the best of point source and line array technology. It houses eight 2-inch drivers that are aligned in a segmented circular-arc high-frequency array. These transducers are centered around a single 12-inch woofer. The output from these state-of-the-art drivers travels on the same acoustic axis, ensuring that the pattern always radiates from the center of the CDL12P. And when you stack multiple enclosures, the entire array maintains consistent center-to-center spacing among all the high- and low-frequency drivers, creating a seamless transition from one cabinet to the next. It also minimizes comb filtering, maintaining a controlled 120° horizontal coverage pattern, while the vertical coverage is expanded by 15° per speaker. That means a 6-speaker array of CDL12Ps delivers impressive dispersion of up to 90° vertically and 120° horizontally!
Customizable array presets and flexible mounting for easy deployment:
Whether you’re using it alone or in an array, setting up the CDL12P is a breeze, thanks to its onboard presets on the rear panel. Use the simple controls to configure your arrays of one to six CDL12P speakers, engage a 90Hz low-cut filter, or integrate a subwoofer like the PreSonus CDL18s. Its 2-position pole mount gives you the flexibility to mount up to two CDL12P loudspeakers on a single tripod or atop the PreSonus CDL18s subwoofer, while integrated flyware allows for permanent installation.
