[caption id="attachment_14536" align="alignright" width="300" caption="*Photo: Grund Audio Design GT-1220M and GT-1520M *"][/caption]Council Bluffs, IA – April 2012… Grund Audio Design, a pioneering manufacturer of loudspeaker and signal processing products for the audio professional, is pleased to announce the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors—the company’s latest additions to their popular GT Series floor monitor product group. Featuring two-way, bass reflex and dual angle enclosure designs, these versatile floor monitors are ideal for both portable and fixed sound reinforcement applications.
An ideal choice for either analog or digital reproductions where clean, clear response is a must, the new Grund Audio Design GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors are designed for near field applications where smooth, dynamic range is required. With impressive power handling characteristics, these floor monitors are capable of high output for a full stage mix of vocals, drums, keyboards, guitars, and bass. Equally notable, these loudspeakers are well-suited for side-fill or delay monitoring applications. Boasting wide-range dispersion characteristics, the GT-1220M and GT-1520M also ship with pole cups integrated into the enclosures—making them a terrific choice for ‘speaker on a stick’ general purpose PA system applications.
The Grund Audio Design GT-1220M floor monitor’s components include a 12-inch high excursion, low frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver that is coupled to a controlled pattern horn for crystal clear high frequency reproduction. The GT-1520M floor monitor provides a 15-inch high excursion, low frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver/horn combination. Both the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors feature 40-degree horizontal and 80-degree vertical dispersion patterns.
The new GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors have a 450 W power handling capability with a nominal impedance of 8 Ohms. Frequency response for both models is rated at 50 Hz – 18 kHz. Each enclosure provides two Neutrik® NL4 Speakon® connectors plus a biamp switch.
Both the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitor systems are two-way, bass reflex designs constructed with multi-ply Baltic Birch wood that is heavily braced for cabinet rigidity. These enclosures are available in three standard finishes: black, white, or natural (ready-to-stain). The transducer compliment is protected with a powder-coated, perforated steel grille. With their dual angle enclosure design, the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors make it easy to position the loudspeakers for maximum on-stage effectiveness while maintaining a low profile for a clean stage presence. For fixed installations, these loudspeaker enclosures are available with optional 2 x 2 suspension, 3/8"-16 threaded mounting points.
Frank Grund, President of Grund Audio Design, commented on the company’s new GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors. “The GT-1220M and GT-1520M are extremely versatile loudspeaker systems,” said Grund. “They provide the articulation and punch required in high SPL performances and their controlled pattern horns enable one to achieve high on-stage SPL levels before feedback. In addition to their primary function as floor monitors, both models can serve double duty as general purpose PA loudspeakers. With their integrated pole cups, they can be positioned on floor stands and elevated. Similarly, these loudspeakers can be suspended via optional threaded mounting points—making them a viable choice for fixed installation sound reinforcement purposes.”
The Grund Audio Design GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors carry MSRP pricing of $1,139.00 and $1,149.00 respectively. Both models are currently available.
