The HDSK1000 is a true audiophile subwoofer. It is easily capable of out-performing a majority of units costing multiples more. A beautifully clean sound with very fast and tight bass at either subtle volumes or at extra high SPL, reproducing deep, dynamic and detailed bass at frequencies down to the infra-sonic. This top-of-the-line subwoofer will exceed the requirements for a majority of systems and rooms with both accuracy in music and explosive effects for Home Theatre that will shake your world! The incredible depth of bass goes down below 18Hz in an enclosure of only 60 litres. An eXtra-Long-Stroke 12” Peerless subwoofer is used, set in the forward firing mode. The Peerless XLS, extra heavy duty, exotic material manufactured subwoofer is complemented by a duplicate 12” rear mounted Passive Radiator. This is a non-powered “Drone Cone” that utilises the low frequency energy within the box, similar to a port but with some distinct advantages that improve performance and specifications. Our dual 12” design achieves superior audiophile sound with lower than normally achievable frequency response for a given sized enclosure, all without the air breathing distortion normally associated with a vented enclosure used at such low frequencies and high volume levels. The enclosure is made from extra thick & ridged 33mm MDF board with a total of 7 internal bracing ribs(!) made from solid hardwood and interlocked into the side panels to reduce unwanted panel resonance. All bracing ribs and speaker mounting holes are tapered, again to reduce internal turbulence and distortion. To improve performance and reduce diffraction, all outer edges and the grill are also tapered. The box is impressively finished in a premium quality, two-pack black paint, like a grand piano finish, for a a truly beautiful piece of furniture. We have made available this version with no power amp. This is for those who wish to externally amplify their sub with a high-performance solution. The 12” driver is capable of running on 300Wrms, long term, so any amplifier will be suitable power wise. However, your choice must have excellent low frequency and subsonic specifications to utilize the possible performance achievable by this sub. Beware: many amplifiers are not good in the sub-sonic, especially powering this 4Ω (Re 3.5Ω) XLS driver. We also highly recommend some low-frequency equalization to tune the HDSK1000 into your room.
