Since its introduction in late 2003, the Unity Series has well established itself as one of the most advanced, most versatile and most efficient high-powered portable PA cabinet designs currently available. The radical Unity Summation Aperture Horn Technology provides remarkably even high / mid frequency distribution from the 60 x 60 horn assembly, delivering unmatched clarity and definition from a loudspeaker box.

Building on the popularity of the single 15-inch and horn Unity U15, the logical step was to offer that highly successful passive cabinet in a radically redesigned active version. The result is the 1000-watt three-way 15-inch and horn U15P.

The radical nature of the Unity horn required a radical power amp solution to ensure optimum performance from the system. An integrated DSP provides three-way internal crossover, time alignment, component protection, limiting and an extremely accurate overall cabinet EQ. Time delayed output for accurate subwoofer alignment ensures the Unity U15P delivers maximum impact in systems where complex external processing isn't the preferred set-up solution.

The U15P uses a combination of amplifier topographies to ensure reliability and superior loudspeaker performance. Two Class A/B amplifier modules drive the 1.75-inch horn driver, and to the three 5-inch ceramic drivers that make up the Unity horn assembly. An additional three-tier designed amplifier module powers the 15-inch woofer.

The U15P is built using 5/8-inch birch plywood cabinet construction. Integrated bar handles and standmount adaptor allows the U15P to be quickly and easily integrated into any mobile live PA system. The cabinet's unmatched clarity and performance make an ideal choice as a repeater cabinet in large rooms and concert halls. Integrated flypoints allow the U15P to be flown in multi-cabinet arrays or installations without modification to the box. The cabinet's trapezoidal shape was designed with tight-pack box arrays in mind.

Worked with a local sound company that owns the Unity U15Ps and I think they are excellent sounding speakers. The U15Ps are the powered version speakers with a little more weight than the passive U15s. It is well getting the powered boxes as all the amplification and DSP is already built-in. Plug in a line level feed from the mix, plug in the AC power cable and you are set! No amp racks required for these speakers. The Unity USC1P powered 15" subwoofers are amazing. They have 1500 watts of power built-in and provide excellent low-end performance. They sound more like an 18" sub than a 15" sub. Unity speakers and subwoofers are definitely more expensive than your average powered boxes however, the cost is all worth it. My only con with the U15Ps is that the box weight is a little bit much for one person when you are raising them up on a heavy duty, tripod speaker stand. Other than that, these speakers are excellent!

Great sounding speaker. Incredible vocals, hi-fi sounding for dj use, and rarely need a separate subwoofer for most gigs. Would be great for live band especially in vocal range.

Great sounding speakers. Deep bass, very clean mids, and crisp highs. Now I know why they are that expensive. Good in a home studio as well. Deep bass at low volume, so they're a pleasure to listen even at night. I am going to purchase a pair.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
This product is normally available for rental. Please contact your preferred location for further information.
