d&b audiotechnik has introduced its new ultra-compact subwoofer, the B8-SUB, at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt.
Providing a low frequency extension down to 43 Hz, the B8 pairs with the d&b xC, xS and E-Series loudspeakers, with dedicated models for mobile (B8-SUB) and install (Bi8-SUB). Designed to fit comfortably in the tightest of spaces, the B8 is suitable for corporate environments, cruise ships, small venues and other applications.
The B8 is an actively driven subwoofer that features two 6.5” drivers with ferrite magnets housed within a bass-reflex cabinet design. The precisely tuned drivers achieve a low frequency extension from 170 Hz down to 43 Hz. The B8 can be driven by all current d&b amplifiers, achieving a max. SPL of 122 dB for a truly full range performance from a low profile subwoofer.
“The lower frequencies play an important role in the perception of speech and rhythm,” said d&b product manager, Wolfgang Schulz. “Subwoofers have often been omitted from applications due to space constraints or the visually sensitive nature of a venue. Now listeners can get a full bandwidth experience everywhere, because it’s very easy to integrate the B8 anywhere.”
