Artcoustic has introduced the Diablo Tech+1 Subwoofer – the smallest and only powered floor standing subwoofer in its product line. Comparable in size and dimension to an ordinary shoe box, the Diablo Tech +1 keeps with the company’s “décor- first” design philosophy.
The Tech+1 replaces the two-piece Diablo Active Subwoofer. Manufacturer’s suggested retail pricing is $1,800 and is available in white, silver or black finish. Custom colors are available.
The Diablo Tech+1 subwoofer is recommended for 2-channel/near field studio monitoring, home audio or cinema for small to medium sized rooms, and commercial applications such as restaurants, bars, boardrooms, etc. It features a maximum sound pressure level of 105 dB at 1 meter. Multiple units may be daisy-chained for large room applications. The Diablo Tech+1 is also designed using a 10 inch bass unit, which produces a low frequency performance equivalent to a box four times in size, according to Artcoustic.
