d&b audiotechnik extends E-Series

The E4 will be available from November 2011, while the release of the E5 is scheduled for January 2012

10 October 2011

UK - The d&b audiotechnik benchmark E-Series comprises some of the smallest loudspeakers within the Black range of products. In order to expand the offering within this series, d&b is launching the new E4and E5 loudspeakers that size wise fit below the recently launched E6,the successor for the venerable little E3. The E4 will be available from November 2011, while the release of the E5 is scheduled for January 2012.

The E4 and E5, the latter being a new design for the popular E0, are lightweight two-way passive loudspeakers that employ a 4" and 5" LF driver respectively and a coaxially mounted wide dispersion dome tweeter. Both are mounted in highly compact enclosures and offer wide symmetrical dispersion patterns in the horizontal and vertical plane, while the cabinets may be mounted in either attitude.

They have built-in passive crossover networks with a frequency response extending from 130 to 20 kHz for the E4 and 85 Hz to 20 kHz forthe E5 and weighing in at 1.1 kg (2.4 lb) and 2.2 kg (4.8 lb) they produce a maximum dB SPL of 115 and 117 respectively. The enclosures are injection moulded and are coated with an impact resistant black paint finish.

The loudspeakers are weather protected and suitable for temporary outdoor use as standard, and as with all other E-Series cabinets are available to order with a special colour option. They can be powered by either the d&b D6 or D12 amplifiers and up to four cabinets may be driven by each channel of either amplifier.

The E4 and E5 loudspeakers are specifically intended for mobile near field applications for speech and music reinforcement in theatres, conferences, industrial presentations and broadcast studios and as surround sound, delay and fill systems. Both can be used stand-alone or supplemented by different subwoofers from the E-Series.

Werner 'Vier' Bayer, product manager at d&b commented, "When we recently launched the E6 into the E-Series we thought at the time that this little loudspeaker was the final piece to complete the package since the introduction of theE12X and the cardioid B4 subwoofers, however these two new loudspeakers have proved us wrong. The E4 and E5 are great additions to this Series, providing even further flexibility along with astonishing performance for their size. They really should be listened to, to be believed."
