AVE ULTRA15-DSP 15″ 1100watt Powered Speaker with DSP Control


The AVE ULTRA15-DSP 15 Inch Powered Speaker the 15″ edition in the line up of the new Ultra DSP loudspeaker series from AVE. The engineers at AVE knew that premium sound quality could be achieved at a price point that is accessible to all.  All components were hand-chosen by AVE engineers with this intention in mind, from the carefully selected drivers to the solid Birch plywood cabinet and customised DSP. The result is an innovative, fresh design that’s loaded with power, class, and a quality of sound that you expect from systems in a price range that is far beyond the Ultra DSP series.

Rich, Warm Sound

The Ultra15DSP’s have been fitted with a high output 1.5 inch voice coil and 15″ woofer. Couple this with the precision 1.75 inch HF drivers, and a smooth and wide frequency response is achieved.  Built into a solid 16mm Birch Plywood cabinet providing the foundation for a rich warm sound with an enhanced bass response. With specially selected transducers to provide high output while maintaining clarity, uncompromising performance provided by the custom selected woofers and HF drivers, ensuring a large, clean and powerful sound. This resulting high output punch and clarity is what puts the ULTRA15-DSP in a class above its price range.

Custom 1100W bi-amped design

The 1100W bi-amplified design in the ULTRADSP series uses both Class-D & Class A/B technology, taking the best assets from both. The minimal wattage needed to run at a high power, providing the best possible bass response is a result of the class D technology. In order to ensure the best clarity and warmth in the high frequencies Class A/B technology has been utilised.  Class A/B brings a warmth to the transient response in the high end of the spectrum that Class D struggles to deliver. Together the result is a large punchy low end and a warm transient high-frequency response that runs efficiently. Delivering maximum performance.

Rigorous Testing

With quality and reliability in mind, every unit we have built gets broken in through rigorous testing. In-house, every box is run for 40 hours continually, ensuring that all components are performing to the highest standard. Following this, each unit is then tuned by hand.

AVE DSP Software; Your Sound Your Way

The DSP processor built into the ULTRADSP Series comes with 8 user-selectable presets, allowing you to tailor the sound and response of the speaker for the best sound possible. Built with the goal of delivering pristine sound and also be user-friendly, changing the DSP preset’s is as simple as selecting the number of the preset you would like. There are 4 presets that suit most scenarios;

  • Music: For DJs and pre-recorded music
  • Live: For bands, and live sound events with a low risk of feedback
  • Speech: Tailored frequency response for presentations with low risk of feedback
  • Satellite: Adds a high-pass filter for use with a subwoofer

The 4 blank presets are for the user to tailor to there personal needs, all of which can be saved and modified. This is done through the use of the proprietary DSP Software designed by AVE For the DSP range.

The software allows control over;

  • 6-band graphic EQ
  • Speaker time delay
  • High-Pass/Low-Pass Filters
  • Main volume control

The speaker time delay feature is something never seen before in such an affordable system. The time delay gives you complete control over your room and ensuring that everyone in your crowd hears everything at the same time, or eliminating and phasing when monitoring. This is a powerful feature that doesn’t require breaking the bank to have a PA system that you have complete control over.

The innovation from the AVE Engineers has resulted in a rich warm sound with enhanced bass response, uncompromising performance, and audio clarity. Its hard to believe that you can have all of that as well as reliability, and customisble flexibility. The quality of the Ultra DSP series will endure life on the road with ease and will be the only PA you’ll need for whatever environment you find yourself in.

Great for DJs, Live Music, Venues, Presentations, Function Centres, Places of Worship, and more.

This range is something we are proud to have designed here at AVE, offering the best value speakers on the market, with no compromise on either price or quality.
