Mobile DJ Trade Tips - Issue 52 - dB Technologies

dB Technologies Speakers Review

dB Technologies have been major players in the sound system stakes for mobile DJs for some time now. An Italian based company, their tech team are always striving for the next innovation and development. dB has become synonymous with quality products that deliver unmatched performance for the price.

dB Technologies currently have various speaker ranges to suit all budgets and applications from entry level to top of the range.

In this issue, we will be taking a closer look at the Opera DX series and the Sigma series.

dB Technologies Opera DX

Db Opera seriesHaving used the Opera 400s for many years, I was very excited to have the opportunity to listen to the new development from dB; the Opera DX. They are full range powered speakers with 3 lines, the 500, 700 and 900 series. The 500 series has the option of 8", 10", 12" and 15" woofer, whereas the 700 and 900 series are available with 10", 12" and 15" woofer. They've made the model numbers easy to understand; for example an Opera 712DX has a 700 watt amp with a 12" woofer.

This series of active speakers boasts dB's innovative 'digipro' G2 digital powered amps which give it a superior sound quality.

Each speaker has a line, mic input, xlr and jack connections

Although these are meaty and powerful speakers, dB have definitely been mindful of the weight which makes them a perfect choice for mobile DJs, combining style and high performance.

dB Technologies Sigma

Db Sigma SeriesFor something a little bit different in portable powered speakers, the Sigma series has got to be the answer. The endearing feature is their ability to be mixed and matched and stacked (try saying that quickly!).

Available lines:
Sigma S115 2 way active speaker with 1000W digipro power
Sigma S215 3 way active speaker with 1400W digipro power
Sigma S118 active subwoofer with 1400W digipro power

These are definitely designed for bodybuilding DJs, due to their weight, but the sound produced by these meaty beefy speakers is well worth it. The power doesn't detract from a warm sound with crystal clear high end and a massive base response.

Of course the only way to decide which speaker system is best matched for your purposes is to listen to them. To find your local dB technology dealer for a demonstration visit
