RBH Sound Inc. has just introduced the 1212-SE, a dual long-throw, 12-inch, 400-watt class A/B powered subwoofer that uses TAV™ technology for increased performance with a smaller cabinet size.
Tuned Aperiodic Vent (TAV) technology bridges the gap between vented and sealed enclosure subwoofer designs providing deeper low frequency extension than similar sized, sealed designs. TAV technology shifts the vent tuning to a much lower frequency than would otherwise be possible in a small-vented enclosure and also improves transient response.
The 1212-SE features two, long-throw, 12-inch aluminum drivers—one front firing and one down firing. Besides helping to compact the size of the cabinet, the down-firing woofer enhances the low frequency tactile energy transferred to the floor. Providing the bass is an internal, 400-watt, Class A/B amplifier capable of powering the 1212-SE down to 18-Hertz. The amplifier features line level and speaker level ins and outs, a defeatable/variable 40-100-Hz crossover, volume control, 0-180-degree phase shift and auto on/off.
The 1212-SE is available in over 30 different real hardwood veneer finishes and a new piano-black gloss finish.
Suggested retail pricing of the 1212-SE is $2,299 for standard black and $2,499 for any of over 30 hardwood veneers or black gloss. The 1212-SE is shipping now in any hardwood veneer; standard black and black gloss will ship first quarter, 2004.
