U15A

Powered 15” speaker with 3-channel DSP and bi-amping


The U15A is a two-way high performance multipurpose loudspeaker in a multifunctional chassis for fixed installations, mobile use or Stage monitoring. The cabinet is equipped with a 2,5” PM4 polymer voice coil. The nominal coverage is 60° x 40° (H x V). The MF/LF frequency range is covered by a 15" neodym speaker. The integrated flying system includes five ANCRA (comp.) tracks and enables the use of NFS 2 or NFS 3 eyelets for installation. Five additional rigging points and two fixing points for the optional U-brackets are included, too. The integrated flange adapter (tube diameter 35 mm) enables the use of the U15A on a speaker stand. The flexible U15A suits for speech and music applications as stage monitor, stand-alone fullrange system or MF/HF speaker in sound reinforcement systems. The chassis is constructed from 15 mm plywood (birch) and covered with black PolyUrea© finish. The cabinet is equipped with two grip handles as well as a magnetic front grill with transparent charcoal foam backing.
