d&b audiotechnik 44S Loudspeaker

Backnang, Germany-based d&b audiotechnik recently announced their new 44S loudspeaker. The 44S is d&b’s first ever flush mountable cabinet, delivering compact, high performance audio and a wide range of flexible mounting options.

More details from d&b audiotechnik (www.dbaudio.com):

“For audio professionals who may be challenged by dimensions, architecture, or aesthetics, the 44S loudspeaker is a powerful, compact, flush-mountable loudspeaker that provides the sound needed, no matter what space they have to work with,” comments Wolfgang Schulz, d&b product manager. “It’s a very compact point source loudspeaker for flexible use in nearfield applications, and there is a big need in our industry for this type of form factor.”

An intelligent waveguide and baffle design creates a very smooth horizontal dispersion down to the lower frequencies while being tightly focused vertically. The 90º x 30º dispersion pattern keeps sound directed exactly where it should be.

The asymmetric cabinet design and the optional back box supplies additional flexibility that allows adjustments of +/- 20º in 5º increments, accommodating different listening heights. A rotatable waveguide extends this to both horizontal and vertical positioning.

Paired with the 10D or 30D installation amplifiers the 44S claims an exceptionally high performance to size ratio providing a powerful 121dB and123dB output, respectively.

“We at d&b are very proud to showcase our ongoing commitment to the installation market with the launch of this new product”, comments Schulz. “At a time when the market is challenged more than ever, it is important for us to bring flexible, multi-function solutions to the industry.”

The two-way passive loudspeaker cabinet measures just 128 x 390 x 150mm (5 x 15.3 x 5.9-inch) in size and houses 2 x 4.5” neodymium LF drivers and 2 x 1.25” HF dome tweeters, delivering a frequency response of between 90Hz – 17kHz.
