CPD 12M Powered Floor Monitor
CPD 12M Powered Floor Monitor
The CPD 12M complements the KS Audio line of the CPD Series of FIR Control / DSP-controlled self-powered systems with a very compact wedge-shaped and coaxial driver design, making it an excellent stage monitor. Due to its coaxial arrangement of the low-mid driver and mid-high driver, the directivity is well balanced in near field applications and helps to prevent feedback. The DSP controller works with KS Audio FIR-Filter technology for true impulse-correct reproduction of audio and increased resistance to feedback, resulting in higher SPL's and absolutely transparent clarity. Two integrated amplifiers supply 500W for the 12” woofer and 100W for the 1.4” tweeter - with a peak performance of 1,200W!
The electronics are comprised of a switch-mode power supply with Power-Factor-Correction, a “cold” PWM amplifier for bass / midrange performance, and an analog FET amplifier with the best audio characteristics for the mid-high compression driver. Both the 12” long excursion woofer and the coaxially-arranged 1.4” compression driver have strong--but light--neodymium magnets. The 3” membrane of the compression driver consist of a special aluminum alloy that has a clearly reduced distortion factor in comparison to a titanium membrane. With the CPD 12M, KS Audio has created one of the finest self-powered live / PA loudspeakers ever designed in such a compact size.
There are many applications in which the CPD 12M can be used: theater, live stage music, in large rooms or tents, as a delay system for far away areas, or as a compact middle-high tone system in combination with one of the many KS Audio subwoofers. The CPD 12M is equally suitable for a normal speaker stand as well as a flying assembly.
The speaker cabinet construction, like all KS Audio systems, is built from birch plywood with an extremely robust charcoal colored polyurethane coating. At your request, the finish can be changed to any desired color from the RAL color charts. Another special feature is the multipurpose fitting on the back of the speaker, allowing the installation of different fly-ware and connectors, which are safely interlocked by means of quick release push-pins. A protective steel grill on the front (with or without acoustic foam) is yet another feature of this high-quality product.
The rear mounted 2-way FIR Control DSP 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 input is in the form of XLR connectors. The control panel also has a digital volume control to individually adjust for each venue, and a digital delay up to 140ms or 40m (120ft) for time alignment and decentralized PA systems. There is a Lo Cut switch for speech reproduction or for adding a subwoofer to the system. Operation and set-up with a PC using the KS Audio Remote 3 Software is also possible over an Ethernet connection.
The CPD 12 M operates on all AC 110-240V electrical supplies. The starting current is electronically limited. There are two PowerCON F+M connectors which allow you to link additional KS CPD products, such as a CPD Subwoofer. Hear the CPD 12M today--it is truly one of the finest floor monitors ever created!
