Overview

APS is CODA’s most flexible three-way solution when it comes to medium size applications, and is a true hybrid of point source and line array.

At the heart of APS is a string of CODA Audio’s uber-advanced technologies, the highlight perhaps being the unique DDC (Dual Diaphragm Curved-wave-driver) – similar to CODA’s DDP driver, but with a bit of a twist, in that the wavefront is curved. This ultimately means there is no distortion, and no reshaping required, so it offers extraordinary sonic precision. As a result, when you put more APS together, they perform as one single cabinet, with no interference whatsoever.

Also, each DDC driver is a two-way coaxial system with two concentric ring diaphragms instead of domes, where all pieces of the diaphragm are very close to the voice coil. So when the voice coil moves, the diaphragm moves as a piston, because the wavelength is larger than the diaphragm itself; and that means it can constantly accept the wavelengths without any distortion. In other words, it delivers the purest audio you can get. And because there are two diaphragms on the ring (one inside the voice coil, one outside), it’s actually larger than a dome. The higher frequencies are produced from one diaphragm, and for the lows, both diaphragms are working in phase.

Then there is the APS-COUPLER, which basically sums all the energy from the transducers into a large mutual horn. This occupies the entire front of the cabinet, which means there is no phase destructions, and users will get a perfectly coherent and uniform wavefront, power response, and directivity over a wide frequency range.

Add to this the APS-SUB, which goes down to 28 Hz, and you have a fully integrated solution for DSP control, amplification, I/O audio routing, network remote control, and diagnostics.
