KH 310 A
Active Studio Monitor - Analogue - Left Speaker - Grey

Note: Colour may vary from image shown

General Description
The KH 310 three-way active tri-amplified monitor features a Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ Waveguide (MMD™), flexible acoustical controls, various input options and an extensive range of mounting hardware. This allows the loudspeaker to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations. The KH 310 represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.

The KH 310 is designed for use as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in mid-sized multi-channel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a larger multi-channel system. It can be used in project, music, broadcast centres, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering.

(listed as)
a) Product Feature
b) Benefit to the Customer

Powerful alloy fabric dome
Low-distortion high-frequency reproduction

Elliptical Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide, with wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion
Smoother off-axis response,
More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments
Freedom of movement across the mixing console
Reduces reflections off the mixing console

New in-house simulated drivers
Latest modelling techniques used to minimize non-linear (intermodulation) distortion

Fabric dome, neodymium magnet, midrange driver
Dedicated driver reproduces important midrange frequencies, which is especially important for speech and vocals
Light weight dome has better transient response and less breakup modes than cone designs
High power magnet reduces harmonic and intermodulation distortion

Long throw composite sandwich cone bass driver with Extremely Linear Force Factor™ (ELFF™) and ribbed surround
Damping of break-up modes and low distortion at high sound levels
Linear pistonic motor gives a very low harmonic distortion even at high excursions
Reduced radial break-up modes on the ribbed surround

Two-colour + dimmable Neumann logo
Displays operation status and activation of the extensive protection system
Dimmable for low lighting level conditions or behind the screen applications

Compact sealed three-way cabinet design (magnetically shielded)
No standing wave resonances
Fastest bass transient response
Reduced intermodulation distortion in midrange

One-piece front panel with no discontinuities
Reduced diffraction and smoother frequency response

Powerful analog class AB amplifiers with large headroom
Improved transient response

Independent thermo limiters for woofer, midrange dome and tweeter to protect the voice coils. Woofer soft clip and excursion limiters
Fast acting, high reliability and allows extraction of the maximum performance from the system

Production consistency due to individual hand-alignment in final test
Any KH 310 is “pair-matched” to any other KH 310

4-position bass, low-mid and treble acoustical controls
More control in diverse acoustical environments

Wide range input gain and output level controls
Easier interfacing with signal sources

Ground lift
Reduced noise in electrically noisy environments and over-comes ground loops

Universal switched-mode power supply (100 … 240 V)
One version works in any country and robust to poor quality mains supply

Extensive mounting hardware options
More flexibility in mounting cabinets in more diverse locations and backwards compatibility with previous models

Optional robust metal grille
Can be used, if required, to protect the drivers

Optional transportation accessories
Stylish soft carry bag with space for cables
Robust wooden flight case
