S 1596

The SONUS-1596 is a two-way, ruggedly built full-range loudspeaker system designed for both portable applications.

Exhibiting exceptionally powerful output capability, with a clear and low-distortion sonic quality, the SONUS-1596 is ideal for applications ranging from acoustic jazz in coffee houses, to large dance clubs and rock and roll venues.

The unit comes equipped with M10 fly points on the top, bottom and rear surfaces, as well as a pole mount socket and rubber feet, permitting a great deal of versatility in use.

Utilising advanced technologies normally found only in high priced touring systems, the SONUS-1596 provides extended high frequency response, low distortion output, and precise pattern control.

Featuring carefully designed crossovers that provide flat acoustic power response throughout the critical midrange region, and Community's exclusive DYNA-TECH dynamic driver protection circuitry, the SONUS-1596 is a versatile performer well suited for use by professional audio rental companies, touring musicians, and others requiring high quality sound reinforcement at an affordable price.
