d&b's J-Series continues the established company approach to the design and manufacture of loudspeaker systems. It is intended for use in large-scale sound reinforcement applications, providing incredibly quick and easily configurable array solutions even in the most arduous situations. Control of dispersion behavior is a particular fixation at d&b, as is keeping the size and weight of systems to an absolute minimum; these are both areas in which the J-Series excels. It also embodies the d&b holistic approach to sound reinforcement solutions: integrating loudspeakers, electronics, mechanical deployment assemblies, remote control functions, transport solutions and setup design tools for precise calculation of array performance.


J8 loudspeaker

The J8 is a 3-way design housing 2 x 12" LF drivers, one horn loaded 10" MF driver and two 1.4" exit HF compression drivers with 3" voice coils mounted to a dedicated wave shaping device. The mechanical and acoustical design enables flown vertical columns of up to 24 loudspeakers to be suspended using vertical splay angles between them of 0° to 7° with a 1° resolution. The cylindrical wave segments produced couple coherently in the vertical plane. Due to the dipolar arrangement of the neodymium LF drivers the exceptional 80° horizontal constant directivity dispersion control is nominally maintained down to 250 Hz. The J8 is acoustically and mechanically compatible with the J12 loudspeaker. It can be used in columns of purely J8 loudspeakers or combined with J12s and / or with J-SUBs.

J subwoofer

The J-SUB is an actively driven 2-way bass-reflex design housing three long excursion neodymium 18" drivers, two drivers face to the front and one driver to the rear. The cardioid dispersion pattern resulting from this approach avoids unwanted energy behind the system, which greatly reduces the reverberant field at low frequencies and provides the greatest accuracy of low frequency reproduction. J-SUB cabinets can be used to supplement J8 and J12 loudspeakers in various combinations, ground stacked or flown, either integrated on top of a J8 / J12 array or as a separate column.

D12 amplifier

The 3 RU two channel D12 amplifier delivers medium to high power into low impedance loads between 4 and 16 ohms and is ideally suited for use in both mobile and installation environments. The D12 contains setups for all d&b loudspeakers and a linear mode. The signal delay capability enables user definable settings of up to 340 msec (=100 m/328.1 ft) to be applied independently to each channel. The same applies to the 4-band parametric equalizer, providing optional boost/cut or notch filtering. The D12 incorporates a digital rotary encoder and a LCD display to configure the amplifier.
