Always in control

A 12” woofer with the low distortion output of most 15” woofers is something to be proud of. Massive amounts of output is not the only mark of a great subwoofer. Though we can compete with the worlds best in that category, our design metric is to have ultra low distortion to create the subtlety of every detail of the bass guitar, to the 12Hz stomp of that T-Rex. Innovative technology such as an 1.5kW smart amp with a 32 bit ARM core, iOS and Android app’s to control up to 8 subwoofers, a 2.4” TFT touchscreen, and the control of a acoustic suspension configuration for extremely low distortion.

Sound quality maximized, Distortion Minimized

Every part of this woofer was computer optimized to ensure every speck of performance was achieved and then validated with advanced test equipment like Klippel. Starting with the tuning of the massive 60mm peak linear excursion, spider compliance, and magnetic motor curve, and shorting rings. The 12” woofer is then mounted on a massive 80mm front baffle and operated in an acoustic suspension configuration for maximum control. Every step of the way ensuring the best low frequency experience you can have.

1.5kW of Intelligence

At the core of our amps is a 32 bit ARM 4 processor to control innovative technologies like real time temperature status, current and voltage monitoring, fault detection, and performance diagnostics evaluated at more than a 1000 times a second. All of this to make sure that our 1.5kW amplifiers are always in control even well below 20Hz. In addition we have dual balanced and un-balanced inputs with pass through, 12v trigger, and OTA firmware updates through our APP to always get the latest improvements. The end result is low distortion bass for the finest details with the dynamic range to meet the highest transients without compression and control at the click of button.

APP Control

Bass management is critical to control the notoriously difficult acoustic environment known as your listening room. Standing waves, subwoofers in an imperfect position, and sound variation from seat to seat are only some of these issues. Control for up to 8 subwoofers with 3 banks of 10 PEQ’s, Time Delay, Phase, 6 standard EQ’s, 24dB low-pass crossovers, and polarity, are all tools available to optimize your room performance.

Additional Info

Small footprint, big sound. Benefiting from many of the technologies of our flagship subs, these sealed subs generate amazing performance in the smallest footprint. Low Q, shallow rolloff response geared for sound quality and smoothly integrating into the listening room. Also, a great choice for using multiple subs to optimize in room response and smooth out seat-to-seat variation. The smallest subwoofer in the series, yet packs enough punch to be certified THX Dominus using a pair of D12s subs. Powered by our 1.5kW amplifier, all functions and safeties are controlled by a 48-bit data bath DSP and 32-bit ARM M4 Cortex processor, able to react in microseconds, powerful enough to slam. Ground up drivers developed by our team of engineers. Carbon fiber composite diaphragms, multiple aluminum shorting rings, massive magnets, multi-layer Nomex spiders and lightweight aluminum voice coil wire are the key ingredients – Proprietary nonlinear modeling techniques allow us to simulate all these components and then optimize for real world driver performance – free air and in box. Further refinement is done with the aid of Klippel laser measurements to dial things in. All D-Series subs share our 2.4” LCD touchscreen display and ability to control advance settings using our App.
