Philadelphia (August 22, 2005)–Philly’s newest museum, the National Constitution Center, features more than 100 interactive and multimedia exhibits, photographs, sculpture, text, film and artifacts in 67,785 square feet of exhibit space. Key to the museum is the Kimmel Theater, which features a state-of-the-art audio system creating stereo imaging and surround effects throughout a 360-degree environment. An integral part of that system is a pair of Bag End S18-E single 18-inch subwoofers, controlled by the company’s Infra signal processor which enables the speakers to reproduce a flat response down to 8 Hz.
Design consultant David LaDue of Jaffe Holden Asoustics (Norwalk, CT) selected the Bag End subwoofer system, noting, “We needed to provide the low end of the program material in such a way that we would not drown out and rattle the adjacent exhibits. We found that the Bag End subwoofers, along with the Infra processors, provided a clear, well defined bass that maintained their transient performance even at very low levels. Couple that with their relatively small size and we had a perfect match.”
