Yorkville CU15 Coliseum Series Installation Passive Loudspeaker

Yorkville CU15 Coliseum Series Installation Loudspeaker

Yorkville CU15 Details
The Coliseum CU15 is a radical installation loudspeaker cabinet design from Yorkville Sound. Ultra clear reproduction through the high-mid band with extremely linear frequency response is achieved using the patented Unity" horn technology, licensed from Sound Physics Lab.

The Unity" Horn in the Coliseum CU15 makes it the ideal loudspeaker cabinet for use in any installation where clarity and intelligibility are paramount.

Based on the popular Unity" U15 loudspeaker introduced in late 2003, the Coliseum CU15 enclosure has been redesigned specifically for the installation market. Unlike the touring version of this cabinet, the CU15 enclosure is covered in an unobtrusive white paintable finish, and it has been stripped of extraneous touring hardware not required on an installation loudspeaker box.

The CU15 has been further reinforced for installation, and has seventeen integrated flypoints on the enclosure, making it extremely easy to install on any angle, hung as a single cabinet or in any array.

Unity" horn technology combines a single 1.75-inch compression driver with three 5-inch ceramic magnet midrange drivers on a single highly efficient conical horn. This combines high and mid frequencies driver components in a single 60 x 60 degree conical horn that produces frequencies from 300Hz to 20kHz. All four-component drivers mounted in a Unity" horn measure and act like a single point source.

Unlike multi-driver two or three way full range speaker systems, there is no self-interference between the various components at crossover and unlike conventional loudspeakers systems the polar plots are free of lobes and large changes in directivity versus frequency.

In the CU15, the cone drivers for the mid section are running well below the rated output capacity in normal operation, they are +2dB more efficient than the compression driver and the group of three handles about two times the power. In operation they are padded down about -7 dB to match the sensitivity of the low frequency section.

As a result of efficient horn loading and high headroom, mid range harmonic distortion is typically 1/10 to 1/100 of that measured in most speakers at the same SPL, far lower than any 2-inch compression driver.

The CU15 handles 800 watts of power, has integrated flypoints on all sides, Speakon, binding post and ¼-inch inputs and can easily be installed in any application or array quickly and easily. Proprietary custom rigging hardware is also available for the CU15 allowing two or three box arrays to be installed in the ideal splay angle for maximum horizontal coverage with multiple downward angles to choose from.

Installation of multi-box arrays is a breeze when the optional CU15FH is used.
