The new Event 26A line array from DAS Audio has arrived in store.
GearCast Review of the DAS Event-26A and Event-115A Subwoofer.
Tested by Highwire "a company that lives and dies by reliability and ease of rigging."
For what they do, they felt the Event-26A and S-115A sub ticked all the boxes—sound, ease of use and setup, transportability, reliability, the ability to accept being pushed hard, and support. Certainly by my standards for sound quality, the Event-26A and S-115A delivered.
The EVENT-26A is a symmetrical, ultra-compact, two-way powered line array system. Designed by DAS engineers to deliver stunning performance and exceptional ease-of-use, the stylish polypropylene cabinet design offers a highly portable and road-worthy system. A comprehensive range of accessories makes the EVENT-26A ideal for small to mid-size rental and installation applications.
The EVENT-26A combines two 6.5″ transducers and a single M-60 compression driver in a rugged yet lightweight polymer cabinet. The symmetric “V” shaped configuration of the cone transducers provides consistent 100º of horizontal coverage down to 200 Hz. The M-60 compression driver is coupled to an advanced waveguide design that provides control of the vertical dispersion as well as precise coupling between units when used in vertical arrays.
Powered by a two-channel Class D amplifier providing 800 Wpeak power, the amp´s rear panel includes quality Neutrik® XLR and powerCON connectors. The DAScontrolTM interface makes the preset selection for the number of units in the array both fast and simple. An onboard DSP featuring a 24-bit high-end processor handles X-over, EQ, delay, and limiter functions. The powerful FIR filtering technology incorporated in the EVENT-26A offers constant phase response which translates to transparent sound and exceptional clarity, improving the listening experience.
Streamlined deployment of EVENT-26A arrays is possible thanks to the innovative FSSTM (Fast Set Splay) rigging system developed to permit angle selection while stacked on dollies. The stainless-steel rigging hardware allows flown arrays of up to 16 units in 1º steps from 0º to 10º.
Low-frequency reinforcement for the EVENT-26A is provided by its flyable companion subwoofer the EVENT-115A.
