PL+S 2017: Amadeus reveals DIVA M² array speakers

Amadeus has unveiled its new DIVA M² array speakers at Prolight & Sound 2017.

DIVA M² is the latest middle format line source system from the company’s DIVA Series, which utilises a three-way enclosure, bi- amplified design, and two active drivers.

The enclosure features one direct radiating 8in neodymium LF transducer, mounted in a bass-reflex enclosure, and two neodymium diaphragm compression HF drivers, coaxially-mounted with a single acoustical output, and coupled to an individual proprietary waveguide. Its unique diffraction horn achieves vertical dispersion of 10° and a horizontal dispersion of 100°, ensuring uniform coverage and spectral quality throughout the whole listening area.

The mechanical and acoustical design of the system enables vertical arrays of up to twenty four loudspeakers with vertical splay angles from 0° to 10° with resolution based on a logarithmic function.

The DIVA M² offers a high frequency ensemble tweeter featuring two voice coils, each with its own magnet assembly and its own specialised phasing plug, which transforms the circular planar wavefront emitted by a compression driver into a rectangular planar wavefront. The tweeter features a combination of extended frequency response, high efficiency, and wide dispersion pattern, while the driver is a two-way system that utilises two concentric annular ring diaphragms. Each driver covers a smaller frequency range for increased power handling, high dynamic and low distortion.

The larger annular midrange diaphragm, featuring a 3.5in voice coil, covers the frequency range between 750 and 6,500 Hz with a smooth, linear response. The ultra light annular diaphragm for the high range, featuring a 1.75in voice coil, offers a transient response with high efficiency from 6 000 to 22,000 kHz. The system’s frequency response is 65 Hz to 22 kHz (-3 dB).

The DIVA M² Sub, equipped with two 12in transducers and mounted in a bass-reflex enclosure, can also be paired with the DIVA M² speaker.

The new DIVA M² and DIVA M² Sub are expected to be released in the third quarter of 2017.
