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 includes horn coverage patterns of 40⁰ x 40⁰, 60⁰ x 40⁰, 60⁰ x 60⁰, and 90⁰ x 50⁰. All models are available in black, white, and JBL Professionals WRC weather protection and WRX extreme weather protection finishes. All four full-range models are EN54-24 certified.
These new systems utilize JBL Progressive Transition™ (PT) waveguides coupled 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 loudspeaker 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. The cabinet is fitted with twenty-two M10 threaded suspension points, supporting a wide variety of installation approaches.
The PD500 Series can be used in a variety of applications including sports facilities, performance spaces, auditoriums, or worship facilities. The full-range 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.
