The LS high-end loudspeakers are American made in San Diego, CA. Each enclosure is designed, tuned, and ported using LEAP™ software and tested with LMS™ software for optimum system performance. Multi-ply Hardwood offers the strength for professional service. Professional Neutrik™ Speakon connectors, Mylar crossover capacitors and Speaker Guard HF driver protection are just part of the top quality design. 

The LS1502 is designed to stand alone as a full range sound reinforcement loudspeaker and to couple with our LS1801 for a three way extended low-end system. Effective for both permanent and portable applications, it comes with handles, rubber footpads, and a 1-3/8-inch pole mount cup. Covered in black DuraTuff™. 

Applications include:
- Club system Monitor
- House of Worship
- Band PA monitors 

The LS1502 is Carvin's best selling enclosure because of its extended bass and high frequency range for sound reinforcement. With its heavv duty 15-inch woofer in a compact computer tuned enclosure, the system delivers plenty of bass along with crystal clear highs from its 1-inch exit (1.5-inch diaphragm) titanium horn. The enclosure is constructed of CNC machined multiply Hardwood with heavy gauge steel powder coated front grills. The crossover includes 4 pin NL4 Speakon and 1/4" phone connectors mounted on FR4 double sided circuit boards for solid construction and durability. Carvin's exclusive Speaker Guard™ HF Driver protection uses a self resetting relay circuit to dim the HF driver 10 dB protecting the voice coil from excessive power. The benefits are the driver is not turned off losing all the high frequencies, the circuit resets as soon as the high frequency content is back to normal levels.

"Clear and handles small clubs real well without SPL distortion. Well worth the money."

"Bought these speakers as an upgrade to some Kustom 12" we were using. They made a noticeable difference in the volume and clarity of the vocals. Reasonably light at 45 lbs each, they are easy to set up for one person. Highly recommended."

"The LS1502 speakers are fantastic! The cabinets are lightweight and easier to carry than most of the 12" speakers I used to own. These are middleweight speakers that pack a heavyweight punch. My first DJ gig with the 1502's was a school dance. I cranked these speakers pretty hard and had the kids dancing all night. There was a band teacher chaperoning the dance and he complimented me several times on how great the music sounded. Buy these speakers, they are a great investment!"
