THE FIRST TRULY PORTABLE ARRAY SYSTEM

The innovative CURV 500® system combines easy portability, perfect sound and straightforward operation in a unique way.

CONNECT THESE 3 FOR EXCELLENCE

The CURV 500® is based on the innovative SmartLink® adapter that provides plug-and-play convenience. It features LD Systems` patented slide-and-lock mechanism to attach up to four array elements with maximum ease.

Four CURV 500® satellites featuring WaveAhead® technology and LD Systems' patented slide-and-lock mechanism.

The ingenious SmartLink® adapter, which holds up to four array satellites.

The CURV 500® subwoofer with integrated 4-channel mixer, DSP, 24-bit effects and class D amplifier to power the system.

The SmartLink® adapter connects to the subwoofer that provides system control and connectivity.

The CURV 500® DB height adjustable subwoofer pole.

GUESS WHY IT‘S CALLED “SMARTLINK®”?

The CURV 500® system hinges on the unique SmartLink® adapter on the left. Like the array elements, it features LD Systems' patented slide-and-lock mechanism. Press the lock button, slide in the satellite and release - it's as easy as that! You can mount up to four elements on top of each other that way.

The ingenious slide-and-lock mechanism provides instant mechanical and electrical connection - no cables are required. Now, that's smart engineering!

SIZE XS, XL SOUND!

To deliver superior sound from each 12 x 12 cm array element the CURV 500® uses LD Systems proprietary WaveAhead® technology, which places a vertical array of three tweeters in front of a high sensitivity full range transducer. This design provides outstanding audio quality and controlled coverage.

Their slanted profile automatically aligns multiple array elements in a curve resulting in consistent coverage and clear, three-dimensional sound - just like that of a much larger line array.

SOUND TO GO

The CURV 500® is the first truly portable array system. It merges advanced technology with elegant looks, and the modular design facilitates effortless transport.

AUDIO POWER FOR MUSICIANS AND ENTERTAINERS

Engineered for both music and speech, the CURV 500® is the ideal sound reinforcement for singer-songwriters, acoustic acts, solo entertainers and comedians. The system easily fits into any car, is set up in no time and delivers audio with clarity and punch.

AUDIO POWER FOR THE DJ

With its uncompromising audio performance and speech intelligibility, the CURV 500® is a real power plant for disc jockeys, as well.

And for those who can't get enough of a good thing, the CURV 500® is available as a double pack - the Power Set includes two subwoofers, two SmartLink® adapters and eight array satellites.

AUDIO POWER FOR FIXED INSTALLATIONS

With its application versatility, the CURV 500® is also a perfect choice for small clubs, conferences, lecture rooms and presentations. In fixed installations or portable usage, the system delivers high quality audio that makes your audience listen with pleasure.

DESIGNED TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER

The CURV 500® subwoofer includes a 4 channel mixer with microphone, instrument and line inputs.

XLR and 1/4" TRS combo connector for balanced microphone or instrument input. The corresponding pushbutton selects HI-Z for instruments or MIC for microphones. The connector also provides unbalanced TS input.

XLR and 1/4" TRS combo connector for balanced microphone input, also supplies 12V phantom power to condenser microphones. The connector also provides unbalanced TS input.

XLR and 1/4" TRS combo connectors for stereo line level input (e.g. mixer, keyboard, E-Drum set).

Male XLR connector for balanced mono line output (e.g. connecting an active speaker or a recording device).

5-pin male XLR output to connect the CURV 500® SE subwoofer extension or CURV 500® PES (Power Extension Set).

FULL CONTROL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The CURV 500® integrates Bluetooth® technology for wireless data transmission from smartphones, tablets or laptops and a 24-bit digital FX processor.

Channels 1 and 2 feature input level, precision 2-band EQ and effect level controls.

The stereo channels 3 and 4 provide Bluetooth® connectivity, a mini TRS jack for MP3 player, laptop, tablet or smartphone input. The input level control also governs the L/R combo line inputs.

The subwoofer level control adjusts the low frequency response to room acoustics.

The satellite selector adjusts the DSP and its EQ and LF level settings to the number of array satellites that are used.

A rotary encoder selects one of 16 integrated 24-bit effect presets. Use the DFX level controls to adjust the amount of effect on channels 1 and 2.

GREAT SOUND TO INSTALL

Custom wall and ceiling brackets facilitate fixed installation of the CURV 500® system. Ultra-compact and elegant, it delivers superb sound in virtually any ambience.

ONE SYSTEM, COUNTLESS OPTIONS

With its modular design and unobtrusive mounting hardware the CURV 500® installs easily in any architectural environment.

READY FOR THE UNEXPECTED

Dedicated mounting hardware enables up and down aiming of the CURV 500® array satellites. For connection versatility, the SmartLink® adapter also features a socket for solderless Phoenix connectors.

AT HOME EVERYWHERE

The CURV 500® is spot on where outstanding sound is asked for - on stage, in fixed installations and as a home audio system in your living room.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, SMALL-SCALE PACKAGE

LD Systems' WaveAhead® technology places a vertical tweeter array in front of a high-performance full range transducer. This proprietary design reduces reflections from ceilings and floors resulting in clear, consistent coverage.

A DESIGN MASTERPIECE

The unibody construction of the CURV 500® array satellites sets new standards. A masterpiece of design, technology and simplicity, it is a major ingredient for the system's outstanding audio performance.

TECHNOLOGY THAT’S A STEP AHEAD

The WaveAhead® transducer arrangement provides extremely wide and coherent coverage without the time and phase problems of conventional multi-way loudspeakers.

EXTENDED SOUND DISPERSION

Moreover, LD Systems' unique WaveAhead® design delivers extended sound dispersion from an ultra-compact enclosure.

SEAMLESS COUPLING

The tightly packed WaveAhead® tweeter configuration results in seamless vertical source coupling when multiple array elements are used. This results in uniform, coherent coverage across the listening area - the audience shares the same audio experience up front, far in the back and in between.

3 SETS TO MEET YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS

Three sets are available for mobile and fixed installation. Thanks to optional extensions, the systems can be expanded at any time. Black and white housing designs allow for harmonious integration into the surrounding architecture.

The Entertainer Set consists of a high-performance 10" bass reflex subwoofer and an easily configurable array system with four satellites. Featuring a power of 460 watts RMS and a maximum sound pressure level of 128 dB, the CURV 500 ES Set is the ideal sound system for small events or conferences and meetings. >> Learn more on the LD Systems website.

If more power is required, the CURV 500 Power Set can provide a power of 920 watts RMS and a maximum sound pressure of 134 dB. Two subwoofers and eight satellites offer all the advantages of the CURV 500 system and have sufficient power reserves for larger events or applications with high power requirements. >> Learn more on the LD Systems website.

The CURV 500 AV Set is the perfect fit anywhere music is played: in bars, clubs, studios and even at home as a home entertainment system. Featuring a power of 380 watts RMS and a maximum sound pressure level of 122 dB, the CURV AV Set can remain discreetly in the background, but also provide an impressive rocking performance. >> Learn more on the LD Systems website.
