HARMAN’s JBL Intros New Intellivox 380 Series Loudspeakers

intellivox_family-1124HARMAN’s JBL Professional group is launching its Intellivox 380 Series in the form of three loudspeaker models: the DC380, DS380 and DSX380.

The flagship model in the Intellivox 380 Series is the DSX380, which features complex room-molding DDS Beam Shaping. This technology molds the coverage to match the requirements of rooms that have multi-faceted listening planes, while providing not only consistent SPL but also consistent frequency response throughout the listening space. In addition to its ability to deliver clear and intelligible speech the DSX380 units also feature extended HF bandwidth, so they sound great with music especially when you add a subwoofer. The DS380 also features DDS Beam Shaping, with a longer acoustic array length.

The DC380 offers parametric DDC Beam Steering technology and is ideal for speech applications in rooms with a less complex listening plane. Both the Opening Angle and Aiming Angle are adjustable in very fine 0.1 degree increments. This is the highest aiming resolution available on the market, allowing these speakers to meet the exact aiming and coverage requirements of the space, for best direct to reverberant performance.

Typical throw distance for the 380 Series models is 45 meters (150 feet). Idle power consumption is very low at 0.5A @ 115V, providing lower cost of ownership for a facility and greatly reducing the size requirements for UPS systems, when required.

All units include a 16-channel amp/DSP module and eight presets that can be recalled and/or locked for security purposes. Each model has two inputs each with a 4-band parametric EQ, volume control and delay. Output processing includes an 8-band parametric EQ, volume control and delay. An ambient noise-sensing microphone and control software are built-in, as are redundant internal monitoring features to ensure reliability. Featuring the smallest depth and width footprint in the industry, Intellivox 380 Series models are especially thin and unobtrusive, and can be easily recessed into walls.
