Community’s (NSCA booth #1308) two new modular enclosures (DnD12, right, and DnD15) are multi-angle cabinets that can be used as stage monitors at either of two angles or in a traditional upright fashion. The DnD12 is a two-way, full-range device with a 12-inch woofer at the low end and a Focused Array high-frequency section using a dual-driver pattern control horn. Housing a high-power, high-efficiency 15-inch woofer, the DnD15 incorporates the same HF section as the DnD12.

Within the Focused Array design, 1-inch PZT drivers are coupled to the 90x40-degree (HxV) molded horn and angled in the vertical plane to maintain consistent vertical coverage at all frequencies. The horn’s inherent pattern control performs similarly within the horizontal plane, putting an end to “beaming,” extreme narrowing of the coverage pattern.

Community’s PowerSense Plug dual-stage protective circuitry safeguards both DnD loudspeakers, providing an automatic fail-safe defense against driver damage from overpowering. In the first stage of PowerSense Plus protection, output level is reduced by 3 dB and a red indicator illuminates on the input panel. If the applied power responsible for the activation of first-stage protection remains constant, then the system will continue to operate in first-stage mode. Beyond this level, any increase in power will trigger a stage-two protective response, which initiates a much larger power reduction to protect the drivers from harm.

Each DnD enclosure is covered with durable black carpeting, and features a perforated steel grille, stand socket and three mounting points. SRP of the DnD12 is $239 and DnD15 lists for $259.
