USA - Danley Sound Labs has presented the BC215, the newest member of the BC family of subwoofers.
The BC subwoofer class was developed out of what was a military project with Danley. The design criteria was to have an extremely high-output, low-frequency device fitted between the skids of a helicopter. From that project the BC412 was born and subsequently the BC215 and BC218.
The BC215 offers the same low-frequency directivity as its predecessors by utilising the same horn design philosophy, but this version also features multiple horn exit options, which allows for numerous possible configurations. The dimensions (45” x 45” x 24”) of the BC215 allow for it to “stand-up” and fit below a standard 48-inch stage deck or can be configured to “lay-down” and have a 24-inch profile when the horn exit is changed. The “stand-up” configuration allows for the BC215 to offer the most directivity and can be coupled in a pair or a quad configuration for maximum low-frequency directivity without the need for any digital signal processing.
“The unique nature of having multiple horn exits is something we have done before on our TH212 so, when we had the request to have a BC subwoofer that was as flexible as that, we went to work,” stated Skip Welch director of sales and marketing for Danley Sound Labs. “The BC215 is just another ingenious design of Tom Danley’s and we couldn’t be more excited to be launching this product.”
By itself, a Danley BC215 will reproduce output from 33Hz to 180Hz at 137dB continuous and 143dB peak. It can handle 3400W continuous and 13600W peak at 2 Ohms and weighs in at 360 pounds.
