  • Product Information
    • Features

      • The 2.1 power amp stage is built into the subwoofer and provides the system components with 2000 W Peak power.
      • The soul of the DAVE 12 G3 is the LD LECC DSP digital signal processor, which controls all important system functions.
      • It includes specially amplitude and low-latency optimised crossovers, separate equalisers and limiters for the bass, mid, and treble frequency ranges, and a dynamic compressor that controls the subwoofer according to volume and provides for increased punch at low volumes.
      • The professional full range of features of the DAVE 12 G3 includes sturdy multiplex cabinets, all important protection circuits, RCA, XLR/jack combo and Speakon-compatible connectors, and ergonomically shaped, recessed handles.
      • The LD "Evolutive" handles of the subwoofer are an important innovation with a metal ring handle that permits a secure and convenient grip from all sides.
      • For accurate vertical orientation of the satellites, the speaker supports are vertically adjustable by ± 13,5° max. in seven increments.
      • Protection covers for the system components and a castor board with a lashing strap for easy transport are available as accessories.
      • Matching speaker stands, spacer tubes, and mounting forks are also available separately.
      • The DAVE 12 G3 system is ideally suited for portable use and also makes a great impression in permanent installations.
