A New Reference

Massive amounts of output is not the only mark of a flagship 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 3kW 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 a dual woofer Push-Pull configuration for extremely low distortion. This monster can dance as effortlessly as a ballerina or crush the frequencies well below 20Hz.

The Mark of a Push Pull design

Every parts 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. The two woofers are then mounted on a massive 80mm front baffle and operated in a push pull configuration utilizing cancellation of the 2rd order harmonics to further reduce distortion. Every step of the way ensuring the best low frequency experience you can have.

3.0kW of Intelligence

At the core of our amps is a 32 bit ARM 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 3kW 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 each woofer having 3 banks of 10 PEQ’s, Time Delay, Phase, up to 6 standard EQ’s, 24dB low-pass crossovers, and polarity, are all tools available to optimize your room performance. Our APP uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with your iOS or Android based devices.

Additional Info

Dynamic, Accurate, Solid. The audiophile’s choice. Where sound quality and Transients free of overhang are paramount. Simply no better expression of bass performance then our push-pull subs. 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. To take performance to another level, the push-pull drivers reduce even order harmonics distortion by an additional 10-12dB. Powered by our 3.0kW 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. All D-Series subs share our 2.4” LCD touchscreen display and ability to control advance settings using our App. Certified by THX Dominus, The D-Series subs are the world’s first. A testament to the level of design and performance achieved.
