Imagine the heart-pounding excitement of a blockbuster movie, the delicate nuances of a symphony, or the immersive atmosphere of your favorite album. Now, picture all of that enhanced with the deep, resonant bass that you can feel in your bones. This isn't just any sound; this is the transformative audio experience delivered by the AudioControl RS 500, a powerhouse subwoofer amplifier designed to bring your home entertainment to life.

Unleash the Power of Sound

The AudioControl RS 500 isn't just an amplifier; it's an essential component for audiophiles seeking to construct the ultimate home theater system. This DSP-controlled subwoofer amplifier provides a robust 500 watts of power, ensuring consistent performance across a range of impedances (8, 4, or 2 ohms). Whether you're setting up a home cinema, a multi-zone audio system, or a 2.1 channel music setup, the RS 500 stands ready to deliver unparalleled sound quality.

Precision at Your Fingertips

  • Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Control: The heart of the RS 500 lies in its multi-award-winning DSP engine. This advanced technology allows for precise calibration and tuning, ensuring that your subwoofer performs at its peak, regardless of the room's acoustics.
  • Graphic & Parametric Equalizers: With a 6-Band Graphic EQ and an 8-Band Parametric EQ, you have the power to sculpt the perfect bass response. Adjust frequency levels to match your preferences and fine-tune your system's performance to your exact standards.
  • Crossovers and Filters: The RS 500 features low and high pass crossover filters, giving you control over the frequencies sent to the subwoofer and other speakers. This results in a cleaner, more defined soundstage.
  • Phase & Delay Adjustment: Customize the phase output (0 to 180 degrees) and delay (up to 200 ms) to synchronize the bass with your main speakers, ensuring a cohesive and immersive audio experience.

Engineered for Excellence

AudioControl's patented AccuBASS circuitry is a game-changer for those who demand the best from their audio. It restores and enhances the bass response, particularly in compressed audio soundtracks, so you feel every thump and rumble as the artist or director intended.

Harmonize with Top Speaker Brands

The RS 500 isn't just a standalone marvel; it's designed to work in concert with some of the most prestigious architectural loudspeaker manufacturers. With speaker optimization profiles for brands like Dynaudio, Monitor Audio, and more, your system will be fine-tuned for performance that's nothing short of extraordinary.

Connectivity and Control

  • Versatile Inputs & Outputs: With balanced XLR, unbalanced stereo RCA, and speaker-level inputs, plus loop outputs, the RS 500 seamlessly integrates into any existing setup.
  • IP & IR Control: Manage your amplifier over a network or with an infrared remote, ensuring ease of use and integration with smart home systems.
  • 12V Trigger Input: Synchronize power on/off with your AV receiver or other components for a system that works in harmony.
