dpa-microphones4097-application-01InfoComm 2019: DPA unveils choir microphone
Thursday, 13 June 2019

USA - DPA Microphones is previewing a new addition to its microphone line-up, the 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphone, at InfoComm 2019.
Suitable for house of worship and choir applications, the 4097 provides the same sonic qualities as the brand’s d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone but was designed specifically to capture dynamic choir sound, with both wireless or wired configurations.
The 4097 Choir Mic also features DPA’s flat off-axis supercardioid pattern and, like all DPA microphones, has been designed to be one of the most natural-sounding solutions available. As a result, the microphone has a very high-gain-before-feedback, and due to the off-axis characteristic that DPA is renowned for, it makes the entire choir sound natural - not just on axis - but from all angles. This makes using multiple mics on the choir easy for the sound engineer as he can easily mix the various parts of the choir and blend it all together without having to fight the artifacts created from uneven mic pattern pick-up.
“We are excited to introduce our newest microphone solution to industry professionals at InfoComm this year,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “We put a great deal of time into designing a sleek choir microphone that is smaller than other mics of its kind, and has a light and elegant look at the same time. With the same sonic character as all other DPA mics, the 4097 Choir Microphone meets the high standards that users have come to expect from DPA.”

This is the first time the company has designed a 12” enclosure. The much-anticipated P12 “promises to establish a new benchmark for the all-purpose point-source cabinet that can deliver at front of house, on stage, and as part of a distributed system”.
Inside the curvilinear enclosure of custom birch and poplar plywood, the P12 employs a purpose-designed 12” LF neodymium driver and 3” diaphragm HF driver in a coaxial configuration. The cabinet footprint is very compact, measuring 531mm x 432mm x 317mm. Frequency response is 60Hz-20kHz, and the SPL is an impressive 138dB Peak (passive)/140dB Peak (active mode).
In an innovative design twist which allows the user to customise his or her P12 cabinet, the horn flanges can be interchanged to deliver a variety of directivities – from the 60•x 60• that is provided as standard, to a 90•x 40• or an asymmetrical 50•- 100•x 40•. (The interchangeable flanges are marketed as accessories.) Switching between different directivities can be accomplished in just 15 seconds, easily removing the steel grille and replacing the flare, which uses a magnetic fixing.
Less than 20 kg in weight, the ergonomic design of the P12 includes carry handles on each side, pole-mount fitting with a Speakon connector behind it to allow tidy cable management, and threaded inserts for connection of mounting accessories. P12 can
