The SL-Series.

At d&b we think not just in the terms of the physical audio product, but also in terms of the relationship our technology ecosystem and each individual play, in contributing to the whole.

The SL-Series is the next apex in d&b’s journey, but it comes with an absorbing back story.

This video, an engaging discussion between Werner “Vier” Bayer and Matthias “Matze”Christner, takes you to the heart of that journey through 42 years of applied evolution that together define our endearing promise. More art. Less noise.

It’s a journey we take together. From sound to experience. Enjoy.

Mobile. Installed. Both.

SL-Series sets a new benchmark in both mobile and installed audio. GSL, KSL, and XSL are acoustically matched to provide a level of application flexibility never seen before. GSL cabinets are made for easy handing but can be permanently installed to suit. KSLi and XSLi variants differ from their mobile counterparts only in cabinet construction and mounting hardware. Out on tour or fixed in place, there is a complete SL-Series package for any performance.

Benefits of broadband directivity control.

The SL-Series is the only modern line array system able to achieve horizontal directivity control over the entire audio spectrum. We did this using a combination of cabinet geometry and cardioid techniques in the lower range. As a result, you get:

  • More intelligibility and clarity across the entire frequency range 
  • Less spill onto open microphones
  • More control of off-site noise
  • Less time spent on time aligning and tonally balancing outfills

In other words, more of what you want. Less of what you don’t.
