Gainesville, GA (October 28, 2005)–The newly formed Danley Sound Labs has introduced the DTS-20 high-output low-frequency response subwoofer system aptly known as the “Tower of Power.” Housing a single long excursion 12-inch driver in a patent applied enclosure, the DTS-20 claims to be the most powerful subwoofer available on the market, with almost 10dB more output at 20Hz than designer Tom Danley’s renowned ContraBass loudspeaker.
The DTS-20 is said to achieve “an extraordinary performance specification” without the use of servo motors, making it not only more musical but also more cost-effective. The system operates across the frequency range 18Hz – 150Hz (-3dB) and offers a maximum output of 122dB SPL (125dB SPL peak). System sensitivity is 95dB SPL (-1dB, 20Hz – 70Hz; measured as 28.3V input 1/2 [email protected] distance). Input power ratings are 500W continuous, 1000W program.
Packing the acoustic punch of up to half a dozen of Danley’s ContraBass units, the DTS-20 “Tower of Power” measures a relatively svelte 18″ x 18″ x 84″ and is suitable for a variety of installations. Applications range from live music performance and recorded playback situations, such as discos, music venues and performing arts centers, as well as houses of worship, high-end home theaters and cinemas. Adding versatility to power, the DTS-20 can be used either vertically or horizontally and if needed, can be totally hidden and placed behind a vented wall space–a real plus for some home theater sound systems.
The DTS-20 “Tower of Power” will be available at an MSRP of $2,998.
Tom Danley’s designs have been utilized in projects ranging from ground zero bombing simulation, jet engine active noise cancellation, and sonic boom generators to critical listening mastering studios, high-end home theatre, and houses of worship around the world.
