At 8 ohms, both units can handle 300-watts RMS. Bandwidth of the CPL28 is 60-18k Hz; the CPL26 ranges from 70-18k Hz. The speakers include Intelli-Sense driver protection, threaded ¼×20 rigging inserts, a 70/100V transformer and a five-year warranty.

D.A.S. Audio ( adds the Sub 118A self-powered subwoofer to the ACtive Power product line. Incorporating a Bang & Olufsen PowerHouse 500-watt ICEpower amp module, the Sub 118A houses a D.A.S. 18-inch P-18 woofer with 3-inch voice coil. On-axis frequency response is 35-150 Hz; max output is 131dB SPL at 1 meter. Additional features include a soft start-up function, “soft clip,” full protection circuitry for amp and speaker, and a steel grille.

SLS International ( debuts a line of high-temperature, Kapton®-diaphragm ribbon drivers. The PRD 500 Pro Line ribbon driver may be used instead of a 1-inch dome tweeter or 1-inch exit compression driver; the PRD 1000 replaces a 1.5- to 2-inch exit compression driver. Common features of the PRD 500 and PRD 1000 include Neodymium magnet structures and a high-temperature, thin-film, Kapton diaphragm. SLS ribbon driver diaphragms are 100x lighter than dome tweeter elements, have flat impedance and a linear response up to 40 kHz. Additionally, phase response and transient repro is said to be better than dome tweeters and compression drivers, with a greater dynamic range for clarity and detail at high output levels.


Garwood's ( System 24 is a low-cost, multiple-frequency in-ear monitoring system. The system includes a transmitter, beltpack receiver, Garwood IEMIII earpieces, and offers stereo transmission on one of 24 user-selectable UHF frequencies within a 100MHz band between 510 and 900 MHz, factory set to territory or customer specs.

Future Sonics ( offers a new “universal fit” in-ear monitor system under the brand name “Future Sonics Ears.” The new EM3 is priced to be an affordable alternative to the company's Ear Monitors® brand custom-molded models.

The EM3, which is also packaged with Sennheiser's Evolution 300 Series wireless system, features a standard size, ⅛-inch, gold stereo connector. Price: $198, with case and foam sleeves.


The KSM-8 high-performance stage monitor from Klipsch Audio Technologies ( is a compact, two-way, passive design with a single 8-inch woofer and a 1-inch, titanium-diaphragm HF compression driver on a 90°×90°, hybrid Tractrix® horn.
