PreSonus® is shipping the ULT10, the newest model in the company’s ULT line of
active loudspeakers. ULT full-range loudspeakers combine the widest horizontal
dispersion of any loudspeaker in their class with a focused vertical dispersion for an
ultra-long throw. The result is even coverage throughout the space, enabling the
audience to hear clearly wherever they are. Designed for both mobile use and
permanent installations, the ULT10 joins the ULT12 and ULT15 full-range systems
and the ULT18 subwoofer in the line.
The ULT10 features PreSonus’ proprietary, rotatable Pivot X110 horn and a
proprietary, 10-inch, low-frequency driver with a 2.5-inch voice coil. The system is
biamped and driven by a powerful 1,300W (peak) Class D amplifier, generating up
to 130 dB SPL, and boasts a frequency response of 60 Hz to 18 kHz (-3 dB).
PreSonus’ proprietary Pivot X110 constant-directivity, rotatable horn combines
ultra-wide horizontal coverage (110°) for broad coverage with focused vertical
dispersion (50°) for superior throw. The result is a loudspeaker that can fill the
room without introducing early reflections that muddy the sound. In addition, the
Pivot X110 horn’s large size (11 x 11 inches) enables it to control the dispersion
pattern lower in the frequency range than smaller conventional horns, so it
maintains more consistent gain on- and off-axis, ensuring that the audience at the
sides has the same listening experience as those in front. The result is sound
reproduction that evenly fills the entire room.
The Pivot X110 horn can be rotated 90˚, so the ULT10 enclosure can be mounted in
a horizontal configuration while still maintaining its 110˚ x 50˚ coverage pattern.
Along with its compact size, this makes the ULT10 an ideal centre-channel speaker
for an LCR system or an under-balcony fill. Rotating the Pivot X110 horn can also
help fix FOH issues in tall, narrow venues by minimizing early reflections and
providing more directed coverage. Add the ULT10’s multi-angle enclosure and pre-
sets for live performance, floor monitor use, and music playback, and you have an
extremely versatile loudspeaker that is equally at home at front-of-house and as a
You get two combo XLR and ¼-inch TRS inputs: a mic/line input with PreSonus’
acclaimed XMAX mic preamp and a line-level-only input. The inputs have
independent level control, allowing up to two audio sources to be mixed internally
and summed to a balanced XLR output for “daisy-chaining” multiple units. A
separate direct output for the line input channel provides additional flexibility.
The ULT10 loudspeaker features a lightweight, Baltic birch enclosure with a tour
grade, 16 gauge, powder-coated steel grille; ergonomic handles; a locking IEC
power connector; and a defeatable front-panel power-indicator LED. A multi-angle
enclosure enables ULT10s to serve as mains or monitor wedges.
The ULT10 is available immediately from PreSonus dealers at an expected U.S.
street price of $899.95. For more information, please visit www.presonus.com/products/ULT-Loudspeakers.
