Danley Sound Labs has added the Vortex subwoofer to its TH range of lightweight loudspeaker products, which now includes the TH-28, TH-112 and TH-115. The TH-Vortex, also known as the “Twister,” is a tapped horn subwoofer that offers high efficiency and sub-30Hz performance in a cabinet designed for ease of truck packing and maneuverability. Almost every model is available as a powered analog or digital unit using Class-D power.
Measuring 40×22.5×40 inches and fitted with casters for easy load-in and load-out, the TH-Vortex sensitivity is 102dB SPL at 35 Hz, measured at 28.3V input 1/2 space @ 10m distance. It generates up to 138dB SPL peak at 35 Hz and 148 dB in the 100Hz area (calculated). Power capacity is 1,000W RMS, 2,000W program.
The smallest of the TH range, the dual 8-inch driver TH-28, 30.5×20.5×11 generates 130dB SPL peak (calculated). It has a minimum sensitivity of 98 dB @ 47 Hz, (measured at 28.3V input 1/2 space @ 10m distance).
The TH-28 operates across the range 43 to 162 Hz (-3 dB) and offers low-frequency pattern control extending below 100 Hz through the addition of a second TH-28 woofer without compromising output or additional signal processing expense. As is the case in several of the TH models, the enclosures feature a movable panel that allows the acoustical output to be on either a side or end depending on its desired use.
The TH-112 is a high-output, single 12-inch driver subwoofer system that uses Daley’s newest sub designs. The TH-112 offers a frequency range of 28 to 208 Hz and a maximum output of 130dB SPL peak at 38 Hz and 136dB peak in the 80Hz range (calculated). The sensitivity is 101 dB at 38 Hz and 107.5 dB at 85 Hz (measured at 28.3V input 1/2 spac @ 10m distance), and has a recommended power input of 800W program.
The compact touring TH-115 has multiple applications because of its compact size, light weight, truck pack–friendly dimensions, maneuverability (with attached casters) and efficiency. The TH-115 measures 40×22.5×28 inches and is outfitted with a single 15-inch-long excursion driver, and is capable of producing more than 140 dB at 39 Hz.
