CPD 1M Powered Floor Monitor
CPD 1M Powered Floor Monitor
The CPD 1M is a 2-way active floor monitor which complements the KS Audio CPD Series of DSP-controlled self-powered systems. Its extremely compact wedge shape results in the highest sound pressure level and accuracy (even in the lower frequency ranges), while simultaneously having the lightest weight possible. The DSP controller works 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” driver and 40W for the 1” tweeter -- with a peak performance of 800W! The CPD 1M horn is designed for normal floor monitor operation. However, because of the rectangular dimensions of the HF horn unit it can be used in a 90°-turned assembly. Therefore, the CPD 1M also has the ability to be used on stands and as a FOH live / PA top box.
The electronics are comprised of a switch-mode power supply with Power-Factor-Correction, a “cold” PWM amplifier for incredible bass / midrange performance, and an analog FET amplifier with the best audio characteristics for the mid-high compression driver. The 10” long throw driver is equipped with a very powerful, yet light, neodymium magnet. The 1” HF compression driver has a 3” ring membrane made of Mylar that has a distinctly reduced distortion factor when compared to a titanium membrane.
With the CPD 1M, KS Audio has responded to the demanding needs of the professional live sound engineer with a universal self-powered loudspeaker that features the highest audio quality in an extremely compact size. There are many applications in which the CPD 1M 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 subwoofers (for example, we recommend the CPD B or the CPD W1 subwoofers).
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. A pole mount on the bottom of the cabinet and a protective steel grill (with or without acoustic foam) are further features 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. 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 (120ft) for decentralized PA systems.
The CPD 1M operates on AC 117V or 230V electrical supply. The starting current is electronically limited. A PowerCON connector is fitted. Hear for yourself today why the CPD 1M floor monitor is the top choice of so many live music professionals!
