Sound Value: American Audio Unveils DLS-15P Self-Powered Speaker System

LOS ANGELES-American Audio has introduced a self-powered 15-inch speaker that will lighten any performer's gear-hauling load without lightening their wallets. The company has unveiled the DLS-15P self-powered speaker system, which successfully combines a 300-watt amplifier, professional 15� 2 way speaker, and a 3-channel mixer with EQ in an intelligently designed package.

The DLS-15P's built-in amplifier system powers a booming die-cast woofer and high-compression 1.75-inch driver to deliver pristine sound with enough volume for just about any event. Best of all, with an extremely low suggested retail price of just $419.95, the DLS-15P offers DJs and bands a tremendous value for the dollar.

The DLS-15P 3-channel mixer section accepts XLR, _ inch and RCA line inputs. Three Microphone / Line inputs and even a stereo RCA input allow flexible input solutions for just about any situation. Treble, bass controls on the output and main volume controls (with a dedicated line out) let users balance the speaker's overall output for optimum sound quality and maximum punch.

Trapezoidal in design, the versatile DLS-15P comes with floor brackets that allow it to double as a stage monitor. The unit can easily be flown or mounted on a speaker stand, making it ideal for both permanent installations and bands on the run.

�With all of its power and convenience, the DLS-15P offers a great value to anyone looking for a great sounding speaker system,� said Tom Freret, national sales manager for American Audio. �It's the ultimate 15-inch, 2-way powered speaker-a must-have for anyone who has sweated through the hassles and headaches of incorporating a separate amp in their sound system and hauling it around from gig to gig.�

For added protection and convenience, the DLS-15P is housed in a lightweight ABS nylon fiber cabinet with an easy-to-carry, break-resistant handle. The unit measures 13.6�L x 16.5�W x 26.4�H and weighs only 61 lbs., so it not only travels well but also installs safely and easily.

To provide the ultimate in transport convenience, the DLS-15P fits into American Audio's APX-B speaker bag (sold separately at $119.95 MSRP). A rugged gig bag with rollers, adjustable handle and heavy duty zipper, the APX-B was designed to make moving speakers a breeze.

The DLS-15P has a high sensitivity rating of 109 dB/m/w. It offers users the ability to switch between 120 volts and 220 volts when necessary.

I am probably the first to buy a set as of last month. The big question is still about subs to go with them. Are there any 15" and 18" subs in the works? Powered as well to compliment the system. I am in a position that I could wait and purchase them, but if nothing is in sight I want to plan ahead. Any info is cool Cool
