Whitinsville, MA (July 14, 2009)–EAW has unveiled its MicroSub stage subwoofer, the latest offering in its MicroWedge Series of stage monitor products. The single, 15-inch enclosure is basically a small-venue subwoofer, designed to address onstage low-frequency demands.
The MicroSub can be configured and interlocked in a range of different combinations–by itself, with other MicroSubs or with other MicroWedge units. Small pads and recesses are located on its sides, top and bottom. The loudspeaker is mounted at a 45-degree angle so that the cabinet height is exactly half of the cabinet width when the MicroSub is laid flat. Due to its small profile, it can serve as a side-fill monitor, particularly in a club setting. Its 13-inch height allows the MicroSub to be used as a building block to achieve the optimum height for the top cabinets. It can fit in the monitor wedge line downstage or as an addition to many different types of stage monitor setups, understage and front-of-house.
For optimal performance, it is tuned at 35 Hz, operating in the range from 27 Hz to 150 Hz. It features external DSP with one-way filter. Axial SPL Sensitivity is 92 dB (LF-whole space) or 98 dB (half space) at 27 to 150 Hz. Nominal input impedance is 8 Ohms LF, with minimum input impedance of 7.6 Ohms at 165 Hz. The unit’s high pass filter is a 12dB/octave Butterworth filter at 28 Hz. Able to produce high sound-pressure levels, the MicroSub has a calculated SPL Axial Output Limit of 122 dB average/128 dB peak (LF-whole space) or 128 dB average/134 dB peak (half space).
