Description

200 cm Tall Constant Beamwidth Technology™ Line Array Column Speaker

The CBT 200LA-1, with Constant Beamwidth Technology™, represents a breakthrough in pattern control consistency and coverage options, utilizing complex analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to accomplish superior, consistent coverage without the inconsistent vertical beaming, uneven coverage, and out-of-coverage lobing that are typical of both powered and nonpowered column speakers. The CBT 200LA-1 assembly consists of a top and a bottom loudspeaker module that, when bolted together end-to-end during installation, form a 32-driver array that is 200 cm (6.6 feet) tall. The height provides excellent pattern control over a wide bandwidth and superb throw capability. The combination of sound quality, pattern control, and compact design makes CBT 200LA-1 ideal for a wide variety of venues, including highly reverberant facilities and those requiring especially long throw or pattern control down to very low frequencies. Venue types include transit centers, conference centers, cathedrals, multipurpose spaces, gymnasiums, and theme parks, among many others. The slim, compact design fits well into virtually any architectural decor. CBT 200LA-1 can be installed either indoors or outdoors. The drivers are weathertreated, the fiberglass reinforced ABS cabinet is excellent for outdoor applications, external screws are stainless steel, terminals are outdoor-capable, optional MTC-PC2 terminal panel cover can provide additional terminal protection, the painted aluminum grille resists rusting, and the grille backing breaks up driving rain. With MTC-PC2, the speaker is rated IP-55 per IEC529.
