d&b audiotechnik 10AL-D 2-Way Line Array Loudspeaker

Wide-dispersion 2-way line-array loudspeaker with 10″ driver and two 1″ high-frequency compression drivers in a bass-reflex enclosure


The biaxial d&b audiotechnik 10AL-D is a high-performance, wide-dispersion 2-way line-array loudspeaker with a 10″ driver and two 1″ high-frequency compression drivers in a bass-reflex enclosure.

The d&b 10AL-D is the integrator’s choice for theater, opera house, and houses of worship, and other venues where, for example, light-weight unobtrusive enclosures are positioned beside the film screen for cinema sound. The d&b audiotechnik 10AL-D is a passive line-array module with a 10″ neodymium driver and large high-frequency constant directivity horn for accurate pattern control. The b&d audiotechnik 10AL-D loudspeaker is equipped with two 1″ exit compression drivers featuring wide dispersion characteristics of 105°. With a frequency response ranging from 60Hz to 18kHz, the 10AL-D can be used as a full-range system. For greater bass extension the 10AL-D can also be supplemented by subwoofers from either the d&b audiotechnik xS-series or xA-series. A-series 18A or 27A subwoofers can also be integrated into the array.

d&b audiotechnik 10AL-D passive loudspeaker—parsing the details

The enclosure of the 10AL-D is constructed from marine plywood with an impact-resistant black paint finish and is Ball-Impact-Resistant according to DIN 18032-3 for schools and sports halls. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill backed by an acoustically transparent foam. The side panels have an integrated rigging system, while the rear panel incorporates two Neutrik NL4 speakON connectors, as well as a two-pole terminal block with screws. The loudspeaker cabinet and most accessories are also available with the Special Color (SC) option that can be implemented in all RAL colors. Additionally, the Weather Resistant (WR) option provides an IP55 rating, which enables operation of loudspeakers in changing ambient conditions.

*RAL is a color-matching system that defines standard colors for varnish, powder coating, and plastics. It’s the most popular Central European color standard used today. 

**The IP Code or International Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as Ingress Protection Rating. IP55: Protected from limited dust ingress. Protected from low-pressure water jets from any direction. 

Recommended amplifiers

The four-channel, 800W (@ 8 ohms) d&b 30D amplifier is recommended to drive the 10AL-D in applications where medium to high sound pressure level (SPL) capabilities are called for. The d&b D20, D80, 10D, and D6 can also be used.


10AL-D Applications:

  • Theater
  • Opera
  • Houses of worship
  • Other installations where compact, light-weight enclosures are preferred
