Dawn Adds Bluetooth To T-Series

August 21, 2014 by Mobile Beat

Dawn Pro Audio, the maker of portable, pro audio loudspeaker solutions, has introduced its first powered speakers with Bluetooth input, the T100BT and T50BT. When used in combination with the T-Series’ “System Link” technology for connecting multiple speakers, the wireless audio stream into one speaker can be played through every speaker connected in the system. The 200-watt T100BT and 100-watt T50BT tower sp
eakers, both available with a powered subwoofer, incorporate Bluetooth in the speaker’s built-in three-channel mixer on the rear panel.

“Bluetooth is no longer an optional feature for portable pro systems, and we’re glad to now have it available on the T-series,” said Matt Thornton, director of sales and marketing. “We’ve added a nice new facet to Bluetooth with System Link, since we make it possible to go system-wide with a wireless stream to just one speaker.”

Dawn’s exclusive System Link technology, which allows multiple T-series towers to be daisy-chained together with a standard XLR cable, distributes the audio input at any single speaker to every speaker linked in the system.

The T100BT tower incorporates four 4-1/2” mid-range drivers and a 1” compression driver horn; the T50BT, two 4-1/2” mid-range drivers and a 20mm (0.8”) titanium dome tweeter. On the rear-panel mixer for both models, two channels accept both a 1/4” line-level input (unbalanced) and an XLR microphone input (balanced), and the third channel accepts the Bluetooth input, as well as a 1/8” headphone or line-level stereo input, which are all summed into a mono signal. High and low EQ adjustment and volume control are provided on each channel, and there is a separate master volume control for each loudspeaker

Tower audio connections include System Link as well as a 1/4” line-level subwoofer output, which feeds the system’s optional 400-watt powered 12” subwoofer (Dawn Model 200S). The subwoofer, in addition to a 1/4” input jack, provides a 1/4” jack with line-level output to Dawn Introduces T-Series Speakers with Bluetooth Page 2 connect an additional subwoofer, if desired. The frequency response of the subwoofer is 35Hz-150Hz, and gain is +40dB. If the tower’s subwoofer crossover is not activated, frequency response of the tower is 65Hz-20KHz. Gain on the microphone input is +70dB, on the line level and Bluetooth input is +56dB, and on the AUX input is +42dB. T-series loudspeakers are designed for mounting atop a 200S subwoofer with a metal alloy post requiring no additional hardware. The top of each tower includes a molded grip handle for easy lifting and carrying with one hand. More detailed system specifications are available on the Dawn website.

The price of the T100BT powered loudspeaker is $399.99; sold with the Model 200S subwoofer, the system price, including the mounting post, is $779.99. The price of the T50BT loudspeaker is $249.99; as a system with Model 200S subwoofer and mounting post, $629.99. The subwoofer, sold separately, is $399.99.
