Prolight + Sound 2015: the new d&b audiotechnik MAX2 stage monitor offers clarity and consistency

Stepping up to the stage at Prolight + Sound 2015 in Frankfurt, the new MAX2 stage monitor from d&b audiotechnik provides clarity to performing artists in every genre. The passive unit can be pole mounted on a d&b subwoofer and used as a small full range system or perform stage monitoring duties as originally intended.

Whatever the deployment, the MAX2’s high feedback stability and sound pressure level capabilities are combined with a remarkable vocal presence and sonic consistency.

Small and light, the MAX2 still provides a broad frequency response extending from 55 Hz to 18 kHz with a conical dispersion of 75°. In a marine plywood enclosure and protected by a rigid metal grill, the 15” neodymium LF driver and the coaxially mounted 1.4” compression driver share the same magnet structure which allows for a compact and unobtrusive cabinet design.

The MAX2 can be driven by d&b amplifiers using the MAX2 setup or by a linear power amplifier, allowing it to seamlessly integrate with existing stage monitoring solutions.

d&b Product Manager Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer commented, “The d&b System reality is about providing optimal acoustic results for audiences and performers. The MAX2 takes inspiration from the original d&b MAX monitor, which appears on stages all around the world. It is the ideal solution for any stage where clarity and consistency are key requirements.”

Director of Marketing and Product Management, Sabina Berloffa said, “MAX monitors are well known and well loved by performers around the world. The MAX2 is an important new product in the d&b stage monitor portfolio.”
