The CSM Series comprises three models: the CSM10, CSM12, and CSM15. As the model numbers in the product group imply, the loudspeakers are respectively equipped with 10, 12, and 15-inch woofers. At the high-end, within each of the horn-loaded, two-way cabinets, compression drivers outfitted with neodymium magnet structures, 3-inch voice coils, and 1.4-inch exits can be found.
High power output, clean, transparent sound, and rugged reliability are central to CSM Series performance, along with a number of distinctive features like user-adjustable pattern control of the high frequency section, which facilitates changes in the vertical plane from asymmetrical coverage spanning a total of 100 degrees to a fully symmetrical 150 degrees. Working in combination with each CSM Series cabinet's tight, narrow coverage of 50 degrees in the horizontal plane, the asymmetrical vertical pattern is ideally suited for stage monitor use to keep spill into the house at a minimum, while the symmetrical choice makes each enclosure capable of serving double-duty as a frontfill, downfill, or other full-range device when used with a special yoke.
Beyond user-adjustable pattern control, hardware internal to each cabinet and the simple press of a button facilitates the release of a pair of aluminium legs that offer added upstage tilt available from 0-15 degrees in 1 degree increments.
Keeping cable connections out from under foot and tucked neatly away out-of-sight, a recessed pocket on the bottom of each cabinet houses a pair of Neutrik Speakon NL4 connectors, as well as a switch for selecting passive or biamped operation.
Sold in packages, including BASIS processing supporting different numbers of mixes, every CSM Series cabinet is made using 15-ply birch. Finished in black, the enclosures additionally sport heavy-duty perforated steel grilles.
