Product Description

With the new Response DB1, ProAc has set out to produce a small speaker with a quality of sound normally associated with larger speakers, particularly in the bass response

A Smaller Build

Although this type of speaker can be accurate and sound better in some areas than some larger loudspeakers, the Achilles’ heel of a small loudspeaker is its bass extension and the size of the sound stage. A big loudspeaker can produce low octaves and exhibit a large sound stage, ideal for large orchestral works and high-level rock however they can dominate the room visually.

Resonance Control

The DB1 cabinet is slightly larger than the previous D1 model, and is made from different thicknesses of high-density MDF and utilises bituminous damping panels to control cabinet resonances. A newly designed long throw bass driver with raised spider and linear motor system has been incorporated in a rear ported cabinet. The mid/bass driver cone is manufactured from carbon mixed pulp that is then elastic coated and fitted with our ProAc acrylic pole damping phase plug.

Superb Performance

The new high-quality crossover has been designed to produce a flatter response at high sound levels and the tweeter is a ProAc 1” silk dome similar to that used in the highly successful ProAc Response D2. The result is superb midrange and high-frequency reproduction and in the classic ProAc tradition, low colouration and impressive detail. The new driver produces a wonderful bass quality that is both punchy, extended and in some ways, reminiscent of a larger loudspeaker.

Choice of Finish

The DB1 also has the type of larger sound stage normally associated with bigger cabinets. The ProAc Response DB1 comes in the real wood veneer standard finishes of cherry, mahogany, black ash & maple together with silk white and the premium veneer finishes of rosewood & ebony.
