OUR PART # U215B
The U215B provides remarkably even high/mid frequency distribution from its 60º x 60º horn assembly. The combination of that conical, constant directivity horn, dual 15-inch Neodymium-magnet woofers has yielded an extremely versatile speaker. The U215B’s Unity™ horn combines a single 1-inch-throat (1.75" diaphragm) compression driver with three 5-inch ceramic magnet midrange drivers firing through time-aligned slots in the horn-wall. This seamlessly blends the mid and high frequencies while providing exceptional power capacity and clarity from 300Hz to 20kHz. A pair of advanced, high-efficiency, 800-Watt fifteens with ultra lightweight Neodymium magnets provide clean, powerful, extended lows to complete the package.
The U215 comes with a high-definition passive crossover featuring our exclusive PTC™ non-interruptive horn protection. However it can be easily bi-amplified thanks to a switch on the rear jackplate, and with the optional UP215 Unity™ processor, designed specifically to optimize the sonic characteristics of the U215B. The UP215 has been developed to ensure trouble free, “plug-and-play” operation whether the U215 is being run in passive or active bi-amped mode. It further offers a subwoofer output.
The ultra efficient U215B’s trapezoidal enclosure provides a compact footprint that easily finds its home as a FOH speaker when deployed vertically on stage or on scaffold staging, either singly or in tight-packed arrays. Alternately, with its built-in flypoints, the U215B can be flown vertically or horizontally in touring or fixed systems. The MTM (Mid-Top-Mid) cabinet design was chosen as the perfect vessel for the U215 drivers. An MTM design is ideal as it makes the most efficient use out of the Unity™ conical horn. This allows for better imaging and balanced summation between horn and subwoofers. The trapezoidal footprint is identical to the U15 allowing them to be mated together in a variety of ways where an unconventional cabinet array is required. It accomplishes this while still maintaining the ideal array angle to best couple multiple cabinets. The lightweight neodymium drivers help to keep the U215B total weight under 100lbs. Black in color.
