ART Series
Careful acoustic design and advanced
materials have resulted in an exceptional full
range, full fidelity, self-contained sound system.
The ART400A provides an ideal combination of
high power, low distortion and wide bandwidth for
permanent installations.
The two-way design consists of a 15" woofer
that uses a massive magnet structure for accurate
bass reproduction and a CD horn loaded to a 2"
exit compression driver. The CD horn is a part of
the molded enclosure. Two discrete power ampli-
fiers and an electronic crossover are matched to
the two transducers and provide time correction,
CD horn compensation and peak-limiting, as well
as over-excursion and thermal protection.
The ART400A will accept a balanced or unbal-
anced (switch selected) microphone or line input,
adjusted by a single rotary control.
All components are housed in a lightweight,
vented enclosure formed from polypropylene that is
extremely rigid and is weather resistant. The woofer
is protected by a metal grille. All controls and con-
nectors are recessed on the rear. A 1-3/8" stand
socket and M10 threaded inserts are molded into
the cabinet to provide quick and easy installation
using specially designed accessory mounting hard-
