HARMAN’s JBL Pro New PD500 Series Loudspeakers Launch

jblpro-db500-0615At InfoComm 2015, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing its new PD500 Series loudspeakers. An extension of the PD Series loudspeakers, which are found in stadiums and arenas around the world, the PD500 Series will feature five new models. The PD500 Series can be used in a variety of applications including sports facilities, performance spaces, auditoriums, or worship facilities.  The full-range PD500 systems utilize the same high-frequency drivers as the hugely popular PD6000 Series, making them ideal for use together in large systems where multiple loudspeakers are required for even coverage and like voicing throughout the space.

The PD500 Series is a new line of loudspeakers systems consisting of four horn-loaded 15″ 2-way systems and one dual 15″ subwoofer. The PD500 Series loudspeakers include horn coverage patterns of 40° x 40°, 60° x 40°, 60° x 60°, and 90° x 50°. All models are available in black, white and JBL Professional’s WRC weather protection and WRX extreme weather protection finishes.

The PD500 Series loudspeakers utilize JBL Progressive Transition (PT) waveguides, couple with the 2432H 38mm (1.5″) exit, 75mm (3″) voice coil compression driver and the 2031H 380 mm (15”) low-frequency transducer that features high sensitivity and low power compression for high continuous SPL capability. It is horn-loaded for additional sensitivity and improved pattern control.  The 60° x 40° and 90° x 50° waveguides are rotatable, allowing all models to be utilized in either vertical or horizontal orientation.

The PD500 Series loudspeakers can be operated in either bi-amplified or in full passive mode. In either case, digital signal processing is required in order to achieve specified performance. Input connectivity is achieved via CE-compliant covered barrier strips. Each cabinet is fitted with 20 M10 threaded suspension points, supporting a wide variety of installation approaches.
