Cumberland, R.I. (November 18, 2013) â€“ 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.
Available in 10-inch, 12-inch, and 15-inch models, Black loudspeakers feature a 1.75-inch highfrequency
driver and Class D power.
â€œWeâ€™ll put the Black Series up against any other speaker ... and we haveâ€ said Bernard Werner,
Director of Engineering, Alto Professional (@Alto_Pro). â€œThe results in our live shootouts, every
time, are unanimous. These speakers perform at an unrivaled level. People are blown away.â€
Designed and tuned in the USA, each Black loudspeaker comes optimized with a 90Â° x 60Â°
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 December.
â€œWireless control is incredibly useful, especially when the speakers are suspended or hard to
get to,â€ said Bernard Werner, Director of Engineering, Alto Professional. â€œThe Live Drive
functionality lets you leave the normal mix-position to tweak and fine-tune speaker settings via
DSP so your system sounds perfect.â€
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-1/4â€ 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).
