NEW ACTIVE STUDIO SUBWOOFER FROM NEUMANN — AudioTechnology
Neumann is adding a new subwoofer to its lineup of studio monitoring products. The KH 805 active sub is design to be combined with the KH 120 or KH 310 for stereo set-ups. According to Neumann President Wolfgang Fraissinet, “The KH 805 is the answer to our customers’ calls for a more affordable solution for stereo applications. With the KH 805, it is possible to configure flexible monitoring systems for studios of different sizes, with a smooth, uniform response that ranges from below 20 Hz to above 20 kHz.”
“State-of-the-art amplifier technologies and high-quality acoustic components have been used to ensure maximum accuracy of sound reproduction for the KH 805,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet. A robust 10” driver, solid cabinet and carefully designed ports ensure tight, articulate and distortion-free low-frequency reproduction down to 18 Hz, even at high playback levels. Fourth-order crossovers and adaptable acoustical controls allow for seamless integration into existing loudspeaker systems.
The KH 805 features a remotely controllable 2.0/0.1 Bass Manager which enables it to be used in many different applications. The active subwoofer is also an ideal tool to decrease the harmonic and intermodulation distortion of a loudspeaker set-up or to reproduce the ‘sub’ signal of a bass-managed multichannel source, and works as an extension for KH 810, KH 870 and KH 805 subwoofer systems.
The KH 805 can be used to make a Plane Wave Bass Array system, which is meant to acoustically improve lateral consistency in the listening area and further increase low frequency linearity. To reduce cabling, the subwoofer electronics can be located remotely, allowing the cabinet to be mounted flush to a wall.
The KH 805 active subwoofer is available now.
