Led by legendary acoustician Tom Danley and his handpicked team of engineers, Danley Sound Labs has once again developed a loudspeaker that solves a technical problem without compromising on its trademark pristine sound quality. The Danley MINI 180 provides even, seamless coverage across 180 degrees (by 90 degrees vertical) using Danley’s patented technology. Its operating frequency range is 149Hz to 20kHz (3dB) with impressively linear phase response across that range and across the beam width. Maximum output is 119dB SPL continuous and 125dB SPL peak.
“Folks have been asking us for a 180-degree loudspeaker for a long time, and the Danley MINI 180 meets that specification with sound quality that makes Tom proud to put his name on it,” said Mike Hedden, Danley president. “We made it easy to use: the Danley MINI 180 only weighs 45 pounds and mounts easily on a pole or on a wall. In fact, it’s easy to put two MINI 180s back-to-back on a pole for instant 360 degree coverage with Danley’s phenomenal seamless coupling. There’s no shortage of applications, from houses of worship to sports complexes to farmers markets and beyond. Also, clients can rest easy that overambitious users won’t blow the speaker up. The Danley MINI 180 uses Sentinel™ Limiter protection circuitry.”
The Danley MINI 180 uses two eight-inch drivers and Danley’s patented technology to couple them into a single point source loudspeaker with 180 degree coverage. Polyurea coated 13-ply, 18mm Baltic Birch makes the loudspeaker durable but still light, and its modest size (12.5” x 18.5” x 9.5”) makes the Danley MINI 180 easy to fit into any application.
The Danley MINI 180 is now shipping.
