Cumberland, R.I. (November
18, 2013) – With Truesonic Series loudspeakers still dominating
loudspeaker sales across the country, Alto Professional this week
announced the availability of the much-anticipated new
Black Series, a complete line of top-level loudspeakers and subwoofers,
each designed to exacting standards with premium, purpose-matched
components, wireless capability, and immense built-in power.
in 10-inch, 12-inch, and 15-inch models, Black loudspeakers feature a
1.75-inch high-frequency driver and Class D power.
“We’ll put the Black Series up against any other speaker ... and we
have” said Bernard Werner, Director of Engineering, Alto Professional
(@Alto_Pro). “The results in our live shootouts, every time, are
unanimous. These speakers perform at an unrivaled level.
People are blown away.”
Designed and tuned in the
USA, each Black loudspeaker comes optimized with a 90° x 60° coverage
field and an extensively tested high-frequency waveguide. Black
loudspeakers come equipped with wireless technology
and are remote-controllable via the free Live Drive speaker app for
iPhone and iPad, which will be available for free from the App Store in
“Wireless control is
incredibly useful, especially when the speakers are suspended or hard to
get to,” said Bernard Werner, Director of Engineering, Alto
Professional. “The Live Drive functionality lets you leave
the normal mix-position to tweak and fine-tune speaker settings via DSP
so your system sounds perfect.”
Perfect for high-end club
installations, mobile DJs, and other on-the-road applications, each
Black Series loudspeaker has steel-reinforced rubber feet, a
powder-coated steel grille, and a heavy-duty plywood cabinet,
which is covered in a rugged, highly durable scratch-resistant finish
and has comfortable, custom-molded handles. Each has a built-in mixer
with two Mic/Line combo inputs, volume controls, and balanced XLR mix
output. Black loudspeakers come with up to 12
M10 rigging points for overhead suspension, and each one is also
multi-angled, allowing for use as a wedge monitor.
The Black Series has two
subwoofers to choose from: the Black 18 Sub and Black 15 Sub. These
2400-watt powered subwoofers feature 18-inch and 15-inch long-excursion
LF transducers, respectively, and adjustable level
and polarity controls. Both Black Series subwoofers have stereo
inputs: XLR-1/4” combo on the left channel and XLR on the right channel.
Naturally, XLR outputs are also onboard on both models, and feature a
convenient built-in crossover, eliminating the need
to purchase an external rack-mounted unit.
Black Series loudspeakers are now available now with
prices of $749 (Black 10), $849 (Black 12), $949 (Black 15). Black
Series subwoofers are now available now with prices of $1099 (Black 15
Sub), and $1199 (Black 18 Sub).
