  • No Dome Tweeters: 1” and 1.4" Compression Drivers for Superior High Frequencies and Dynamic Range
  • Procella-Designed Constant Directivity Waveguide for Controlled Dispersion
  • Identical Voice Designs Ensure Timbre-Matching
  • Scalable Concept for Any Room Size

For music or movies, Procella loudspeakers are designed to accurately reproduce all aspects of modern high resolution 24 bit/96 KHz recordings – from the transparent audio quality of these recordings to their full dynamic range – in any size room. Unlike ‘hi-fi’ speakers, Procella speakers combine audiophile accuracy with extraordinary dynamic range, and Procella’s scalable concept means that systems can be configured to fit any space from the smallest home theaters to the largest digital cinema screening rooms.

High Level Performance

While conventional loudspeakers can deliver excellent sound at a reasonable price, producing the SPL necessary for today’s 96/24 recordings is beyond their capability. All Procella monitors use advanced drive units enabling them to produce much greater dynamics and lower distortion at high output levels, yet they produce superior micro-dynamics at low volumes. The Procella-designed constant directivity elliptical waveguides provide constant dispersion regardless of frequency, ensuring that listeners throughout the room hear every nuance and detail in a recording.

Identical Voice™ Design
Anders Uggelberg’s Identical Voice™ design links the models, achieving a precise timbre match when different models are used for the main channels and the surrounds.

Outboard Amplification with Procella DA-2800DSP Professional Power Amplifier
The standard for amplification with Procella loudspeakers is the Procella DA-2800 professional power amplifier. This four-channel 2,800 Watt power amplifier is a highly powerful platform that enables uncompromised performance with any Procella speaker system. Two versions are available. The base DA-2800 is pure power amplifier, and the DA-2800DSP adds high-performance DSP that is used for active crossovers and precise tuning of the biamplified P610, P815-FP and P860.

The P610 requires two channels of the DA-2800DSP - one for the P6 mid/high frequency module, and one for the P10Si low frequency enclosure.

The P815-FP is identical to the P815 except that there is no onboard power amplifier. The P815-FP requires three channels of the DA-2800DSP. Two channels operate in bridged configuration to power the LF-815 low frequency enclosure, and one channel is used to drive the P8 mid/high frequency module.

The P860 requires four channels of the DA-2800DSP. One channel drives the P28 mid/high frequency module, and three channels are used to drive the six 10 inch woofers in the V6 low frequency enclosure.

 

 

Procella P860 Full-Range Biamplified Extremely High-Output Loudspeaker

Product specs and dimensions

The new flagship of the Procella lineup, the 6-foot tall P860 is the ultimate Procella main speaker.

Capable of peak levels up to an incredible 138 dB, with THX reference level output at 16 meters, this speaker will fill rooms up to 24 meters (80 feet) deep, making it suitable for not only the finest and largest home cinemas but even mid-sized commercial theaters.

Its P28 mid/high frequency module uses dual high-output pro-quality 8 inch midranges and a 1.5 inch compression driver with Procella waveguide, and its low-frequency cabinet has Procella V6 Power, with six professional 10-inch woofers in a push-pull, distortion cancelling configuration that produces massive impact and dynamics.

As you would expect, each P860 is biamplified, requiring all four channels of the Procella DA-2800DSP 2,800 Watt power amplifier. Three amplifier channels are used to driveded for the V6 low-frequency enclosure and one channel is required for the P28 mid/high frequency module.

With low-frequency extension to 40Hz, the P860 meets cinema requirements for full-range operation. It should be used in conjunction with P18 subwoofers, with the quantity dependent on individual room requirements.

Never before has a loudspeaker combined the ability to deliver massive output levels in large rooms with the P860's high-resolution audio capabilities. If the room size or budget allows, the P860 is the only choice.

Expected delivery of the P860 is June 2012.

Product specs and dimensions

Procella’s P815 is a reference-quality, precision full-range speaker for large home cinemas, studios (music and post-production), screening rooms and small cinemas. Bi-amplified with 2x700 watts of on-board high efficiency class-D power and 28-bit ASP DSP, it combines the P8 mid/high frequency loudspeaker with a powerful 15” woofer. 

The P815-FP enables users to place the power amplifiers in the rack, making it possible to move them out from behind a screen or wall. In place of the amplifier is a flat panel with a set of binding post inputs. The P815-FP requires three channels of the Procella DA-2800DSP 2,800 Watt four-channel power amplifier. One channel drives the P8 mid/high frequency module, and two channels bridged are used to drive the  LF815 low-frequency enclosure.

The P815 enables listeners to experience audio as they never have before – from revealing the smallest details to producing the awesome power of a full-scale 96/24 film soundtrack or a symphony orchestra as previously only heard from the conductor’s podium. With the P815 you become one with the performance. 

Winner of the prestigious CEPro BEST Award from CE Pro magazine and the Exc!te Award from Custom Retailer magazine, the P815 is THX Approved for integration into professional rooms, including THX Certified Screening Rooms and THX pm3 (professional Mixing, Monitoring and Mastering).

Winner of the prestigious EXC!TE Award from Custom Retailer magazine, and a nominee for the CE Pro BEST Award, the P610 delivers full-range cinema impact from a compact set of cabinets.

Powerful proof of the benefits of Procella’s design philosophy of full dynamic range playback of 24bit/96KHz program material, the P610 uses the identical high-output 10” woofer used in the acclaimed Procella P10 and P10Si subwoofers, mounted in its own enclosure, with a separate, bracket-mounted rotatable cabinet housing a 6.5” midrange and 1” high-frequency compression driver and Procella-designed waveguide. With bass extension to 40 Hz, the P610 meets cinema requirements for a full-range speaker, freeing listeners from the sonic limitations of speakers using an 80Hz subwoofer crossover point.

The P610 requires biamplification with the Procella DA-2800DSP 2,800 Watt four-channel power amplifier. One channel is used to drive the P10Si low-frequency enclosure, and a second channel is used to power the P6 mid/high frequency module.
