Each little bass-engine is generously specified with custom installation in mind, providing versatile input and control options including RS232 and a dedicated ‘SubConnect’ PC applet via a wired USB interface.
Ultra-compact ‘cube’ shape designs
Twin side-mounted ABRs for increased output and reduced distortion. Higher output than a sealed box and better control and zero air noise compared to a ported box
High excursion woofers featuring signature C-CAM cone technology
High-power Class-D amplifier delivering 400 watts
DSP processing –all functions performed in the digital domain for precise control
RS-232 for integration with system controllers
SubConnect’ PC Applet for full feature adjustment, installer set-up and firmware update using USB
LFE Balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA Inputs
Stereo RCA line level inputs
Phase switch (0-180 degrees)
12V trigger and auto signal sensing with timer control
4 x pre-set equalisation optimised for music, movie, flat and impact with customisation through SubConnect Applet
Robust metal mesh grille on front woofer
Rigid MDF cabinet construction with durable vinyl finish
ABR For open environments sound quality can be further enhanced through the use of a sealed ABR (Auxiliary Bass Radiator). The ABR works like a piston moving back and forth generated by the movement of the air via the motion of the mid/bass driver inside the sealed cabinet. This makes the ABR ultimately act like a conventional port resulting in superior low frequency punch and extra penetration whilst keeping the elements at bay.
C-CAM Drivers Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium is a material originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. Its properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency. In manufacture, aluminium/magnesium alloy undergoes a three-stage stress-relieving process to remove surface deformation and molecular weakness. Once formed, the alloy cone is subjected to a high temperature anodic coating process in which a layer of pure ceramic alumina is depleted onto its surfaces to a depth of 50 microns, producing a completely rigid sandwich of alloy and heat-dissipating ceramic material.
Conventional cones are liable to flex or twist in operation, producing a significant level of audible distortion. C-CAM cones have a much higher resistance to bending stress and therefore exhibit much greater fidelity over their entire operating range. C-CAM tweeters and woofers share an audible consistency producing a smooth transition of frequencies and a sense of realism and cohesion in the soundstage.
DSP The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) allows fine tuning of all aspects of sound with complete control of the audio stream at high resolution. Advanced features include adaptive bass extension, highly accurate loudspeaker crossover and filtering, 3D audio processing, APC (automatic position correction).
