If you’re thinking about purchasing new loudspeakers, the new AIR Series from PreSonus deserves a spot on your shopping list. The series includes three full-range loudspeakers and two subwoofers.
The AIR10, AIR12, and AIR15 full-range boxes sport 10-, 12-, and 15-inch low-frequency transducers, respectively, driven by an amplification system that combines Class D and Class A/B amp designs. A Class D amp fuels the low-frequency driver with 500 continuous watts of efficient, clean power. A 200W (continuous), Class A/B amplifier drives the top-end.
The 1,200W AIR15s and AIR18s active subs add punch all the way down to 35 Hz. The subs can be used with virtually any full-range loudspeaker, thanks to their variable lowpass filter. Optimized presets on the full-range boxes make it easy to dial in a three-way AIR system without an external crossover. Treble and bass controls compensate for room anomalies and location presets optimize performance for stand mounting.
With their “best of both worlds” power-amp configuration; clear, natural sound with articulate and detailed high end; carefully programmed DSP presets; versatile mounting options; flexible inputs with onboard mixing; and other professional features, should be an excellent choice for both mobile sound.
Available now at PreSonus dealers. U.S. MAP/street prices are: AIR10 $499.95; AIR12 $599.95; AIR15 $699.95; AIR15s $799.95; and AIR18s $999.95.
