d&b MAX 15 monitor wedge loudspeaker


The d&b MAX-15 is a 2-way full range loudspeaker with remarkable vocal presence, clarity and high feedback stability. Due to its coaxial design it is an extremely compact low height cabinet with two set up angles. MAX can be used either as a stage monitor, as a downfill in flown applications or together with the C7-SUB as a flexible PA system. The MAX cabinet is constructed from marine plywood, which incorporates the handles, has an impact resistant paint finish and M10 threaded inserts. A socket to accept loudspeaker stands, ratchet strap guide plates and an optional version with MAN CF4 stud plates complete the multiple application options for MAX.

MAX can be driven passivley either by the d&b D6 or D12 dual channnel power amplifiers configured for MAX or set to the LINEAR configuration, or actively by the D12 switched to 2-Way Active mode. More detailed information on specific loudspeaker setups with d&b amplifiers is available either in the relevant loudspeaker or amplifier manuals. MAX cabinets may also be driven by any high quality power amplifier provided their output power does not exceed 500 Watts into 8 ohms and an additional subsonic filter (25 Hz and 12 dB/octave) is used.
