The Qi1 is the installation version of the Q1 line array loudspeaker. It is acoustically compatible with the standard road version, differing only in cabinet construction and mounting hardware. The Qi1 cabinet is a passive 2-way design that houses 2 x 10" LF drivers and a 1.3" HF compression driver with a toroidal waveshaping device to achieve a 75° x 15° (h x v) dispersion characteristic. The two 10" neodymium LF drivers are positioned in a dipolar arrangement providing an exceptional dispersion control. The Qi1 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an impact resistant paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is covered with a replaceable acoustically transparent foam that is then protected by a rigid metal grill. Four M10 threaded inserts on each side panel of the cabinet enclosure are provided for attaching installation hardware. The cabinet rear panel is fitted with two NL4 connectors wired in parallel. The loudspeaker cabinet is also available in Special Colour (SC) and Weather Resistant (WR) options.
The d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker range is designed exclusively for operation with d&b amplifiers. These provide power as well as comprehensive control and protection functions tailored to achieve the performance, reliability and longevity associated with the d&b System approach. The d&b 30D and D20 amplifiers are recommended to drive the Qi1. The d&b 10D, D80, D6 and D12 amplifiers can also be used with the appropriate loudspeaker configuration selected.
