An Acoustic Frontiers exclusive! We developed this subwoofer system with Power Sound Audio to fill a gap in the market, and meet the needs of our home theater clientele.
Ships to: US & Canada only
Sold as: system (see configuration options)
The Power Sound Audio PRO subwoofer system comprises a powerful two channel 1600W RMS (800W/ch) rack mount amplifier with two high output 15" ported "slim" subwoofer cabinets.
In designing home theaters for our clients, we often ran into problems related to subwoofers. They were either too deep, had the controls in the wrong place (on the back, no good if it's going in a baffle wall), too wimpy (not enough clean SPL output) or too expensive. We approached Power Sound Audio, and worked with them to develop this exclusive subwoofer system. It's only available through Acoustic Frontiers in the US & Canada.
It's designed to be deployed as a system - one PRO1600 rack mount amp and two PRO15.1 subwoofer cabinets. We'd typically place one sub front wall center and one sub rear wall center, or in larger rooms or for those with higher SPL requirements, we'd use two subwoofer systems, with one sub cabinet in each corner and two rack mount amps. Another potential configuration is running four sub cabinets off one amp - in this setup two sub cabinets are wired in series to each amp channel.
The slim-sub design also lends itself to use as a "nearfield" sub, placed to the side of, or behind, a couch.
The PRO1600 two channel amplifier incorporates DSP controls for low frequency shaping to match room gain, as well as gain and delay adjustments. These delicate controls can be hidden behind a removable panel to prevent inadvertent changes after calibration.
The PRO15.1 subwoofer features a high excursion, proprietary 15" driver in a dual ported cabinet that is only 12" deep. The cabinet can be oriented in three directions, including a configuration where the driver faces upwards to allow the subwoofer to be built into a seating riser. There's also provision for an optional grille, in case the sub needs to be placed "in room" and not hidden behind fabric stretch.
