2-way FIRTEC coaxial studio monitor

The new D-Line coaxial monitors. For the last 10 years KSdigital has produced its successful series of coaxial monitors, the C-Line. Thousands of loudspeakers are now in use worldwide. Whether in radio or TV broadcasting studios, professional sound studios, theatrical productions or with an ambitioned beginner, everywhere our coaxial monitors distinguish themselves with extreme control and a natural sound, free from embellishments. At the same time, KSdigital is the first company worldwide that introduced FIRTEC equalization in its studio monitors and established the advantages of an individual equalization of the chassis with a linear phase. Therefore the continued development of the coax series, in connection with our patented FIRTEC technology, is the logical consequence of our work over the last years. With our D-Line coaxial models we are establishing impulse fidelity and a correctly phased "live" reproduction via digital equalization. The new design of the high performance coaxial chassis encompasses a perfectly aligned point sound source both horizontally and vertically, and thereby attains a phenomenal spatiality and presence, even in acoustically poor environments. The use of carbon as the membrane material in the low-mid-chassis (D80, D808) and a high performance compression driver in the center as a tweeter has resulted in an extremely clean and exact musical reproduction with a high level of impulse accuracy. Musically the crossover frequency has been chosen between the fundamental tone and the higher tones; out of range for standard tweeters. The different designs facilitate their use from near field and mid field, up to the application as a main monitor. For us, "Made in Germany" means complete control over development, manufacture and best possible support for our customers’ applications.

The D80-Coax stands out with considerably more volume and membrane area, both permitting a better bass control and higher volumes. A compact midfielder equally sovereign as a full range near field monitor; masters any genre and exposes all errors in production.

Acoustic Advantages of the Coaxial Systems of the D-Line

- No misalignment in the timing between the acoustic centers of the individual chassis.
- No run-time differences between the chassis in the crossover range of the individual paths.
- The directional radiation of the high tone horn prevents unwanted reflections in the listening area.
