Grund Audio Design GT-1220M/1520M
Grund Audio Design has added the GT-1220M and GT-1520M to its GT Series of floor monitors, aimed at portable and fixed sound reinforcement applications.
The GT-1220M and GT-1520M models are designed for close-field applications, and are capable of high output for a full stage mix of vocals, drums, keyboards, guitars and bass. They are also well-suited for side-fill or delay monitoring applications. Boasting wide dispersion characteristics, the GT-1220M and GT-1520M have pole cups, making them a ‘speaker on a stick’ option for general purpose PA system applications.
The GT-1220M uses a 12-inch high excursion, low-frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver that is coupled to a controlled pattern horn. The GT-1520M, meanwhile, has a 15-inch high excursion, low frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver/horn combination. Both monitors have 40° horizontal and 80° vertical dispersion pattern.
The GT-1220M and GT-1520M have a 450W power handling capability with a nominal impedance of 8Ω. Frequency response for both models is rated at 50Hz to 18kHz. Each enclosure provides two Neutrik NL4 Speakon connectors plus a biamp switch.
The two-way, bass reflex cabinet is constructed from multi-ply Baltic Birch wood that is heavily braced for cabinet rigidity. The enclosures are available in three standard finishes: black, white, or natural (ready-to-stain). The transducer compliment is protected with a powder-coated, perforated steel grille. With their dual angle enclosure design, the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors have a low profile for a clean stage presence. For fixed installations, these loudspeaker enclosures are available with optional 2 x 2 suspension, 3/8"-16 threaded mounting points.
‘The GT-1220M and GT-1520M are extremely versatile loudspeaker systems,’ says company President, Frank Grund. ‘They provide the articulation and punch required in high SPL performances and their controlled pattern horns enable one to achieve high on-stage SPL levels before feedback. In addition to their primary function as floor monitors, both models can serve double duty as general purpose PA loudspeakers. With their integrated pole cups, they can be positioned on floor stands and elevated. Similarly, these loudspeakers can be suspended via optional threaded mounting points, making them a viable choice for fixed installation sound reinforcement purposes.”
The GT-1220M and GT-1520M carry MSRP pricing of US$1,139.00 and US$1,149.00 respectively.
