The Q1 is a passive 2-way loudspeaker housing two 10″ LF drivers positioned in a dipolar arrangement and a 1.3″ HF compression driver fitted to a toroidal waveshaping device. The 75° constant directivity horizontal dispersion pattern is maintained down to 400 Hz, while the vertical HF dispersion of 15° allows the Q1 to be used to construct vertical columns that produce a curved coherent wavefront. The mechanical and acoustical design of the cabinet enables vertical splay angles to be set between 0° and 14°. Q1 cabinets can therefore be used in vertical configurations starting from two cabinets with a 15° to 30° dispersion, up to 20 cabinets with a fully user and venue defined vertical profile. The Q1 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood, incorporates a pair of handles and has an impact resistant paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker is protected by a rigid metal grill covered with replaceable acoustically transparent foam, and two EP5 or NL4 connectors wired in parallel are mounted on the rear panel.
The B2 subwoofer with its high output bandpass horn design and extremely high SPL is ideal for extended bass requirements. It is configurable to be either an infrabass for the C4 system or a high output, alternative subwoofer for the F1222 or C7 systems. When used with a C4 system, d&b recommend a ratio of four C4-SUBs to one B2. The B2 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood, has an impact resistant paint finish and eight integral steel handles. The front of the subwoofer cabinet is fitted with catches at the sides for securing an optional wooden lid, and mounted on the rear are four heavy duty wheels.
