DR200

The DR200 is a small PA speaker that doesn't sound small. Measuring less than 20 inches cubed, and weighing in at less than 30 pounds, you can carry two of these babies in the back seat of the average compact car.

Like all DRs they are more efficient than commercial speakers, so they don't need huge amps to drive them. But more important, the vertically aligned melded tweeter array delivers horizontal dispersion nearly twice as wide as that of store-bought PAs, so more of your audience gets to hear clearly what you're playing. Check out this response chart and see:

The DR200 delivers uniform coverage over all the audience, so there's never a bad seat in the house. Here's what builder Art Coates has to say about his:

"These sound so much better than the average direct radiating PA speaker - with none of the "boxiness" or "honkiness" the lower priced ones tend to have. Their unbelievably high sensitivity is just icing."

Average sensitivity is 104dB per watt, at least 6dB higher than the typical $600-$1200 PA speaker. What’s that mean to you? A DR200 with 100 watts input is as loud as the average PA speaker with 400 watts input. In fact, the horn loaded design is so efficient that it can get more out of its single 8 inch driver than typical PAs get with a twelve. Plus, unlike any commercial PA cab, the DR200's bass response is easily adjustable, for maximum sensitivity and extension whether used with or without subs.
