JBL Professional Updates AE Series And PD Series Array Application Guides

In a continuing effort to provide its customers with the essential tools to design and install the most effective audio systems possible, JBL Professional is introducing its new Array Application Guides. The Array Application Guides offer useful information on JBL’s AE Series, both as standalone products and in situations when they are to be used in conjunction with JBL’s PD Series loudspeakers.

Over the past 18 months, JBL Professional has been upgrading and expanding the AE Series product line. Five new subwoofers were introduced at InfoComm 2009. At PLASA 2009, nine new medium power 2-way full-range systems were introduced that featured two new horn coverage patterns, 60° x 60° and 120° x 60°. At InfoComm 2010, nine new high-power 2-way full-range models were added to the lineup and most recently, the final phase of the program was completed with the introduction of two new high-power 3-way full-range models, two new high-power mid-high modules, and one new high-power low-frequency module. All new systems utilize JBL patented Differential Drive® low-frequency transducers, Progressive Transition Waveguides™ and the latest JBL developments in compression driver technology. Three-way and mid-high models utilize JBL’s CMCD™ Cone Midrange Compression Driver technology. These 28 new models, along with eight AE Compact models introduced two years ago, brings the AE Series “tool kit? to 47 models for system designers to choose from when designing projects ranging from corporate board rooms to lecture halls and from multi-purpose auditoriums or houses of worship to nightclubs or large scale sports facilities. The AE Series provides a complete solution for nearly every permanent installation situation.

To help system designers understand the vast possibilities of the AE Series group of products, JBL’s Application Engineering Support team has developed an Array Application Guide specifically for the AE Series. In addition, the Application Engineering Support team has developed a PD Series Array Application Guide for reference when AE Series loudspeakers are used to support the larger format PD Series loudspeaker systems. Both guides provide overviews of a number of topics including array applications, overhead suspension, inspection & maintenance, signal processing, low-frequency pattern control and guidelines for speech & music systems.

Combined, there are more than 20 array examples that include array specifications calling out splay angles and tilting angles as well as overall array dimensions and weights. These guides are intended to aid designers with basic design possibilities for AE Series and PD Series loudspeaker systems and can be downloaded from:
