Properly designed loudspeakers already have woofers. The Principal Grand subwoofer is designed to add the last octave of bass reinforcement below traditional woofers allowing for a greater sense of space and focus. Of course in home theater applications this also means the visceral experience the sound editors originally created and which are only now being realized with the latest high resolution multi-channel audio and video formats.
The creation of this newest product rests on tried and true philosophies. The driver is first. Working very closely with the Danish manufacturer ScanSpeak, we have created our proprietary 12” driver. This hand crafted and made in Denmark woofer delivers tremendous power while still having the finesse and speed necessary to properly integrate with our loudspeakers.
To control this driver we have sourced a beautifully constructed, two piece electronics package. The amplifier is of course extremely powerful offering a conservative 300 watts. To maintain absolute control, all controls and the filter network is mounted in a completely separate enclosure beautifully hidden from view below the subwoofer itself.
Lastly, and most obviously, the cabinet. As with all of our fine cabinets, only the finest in hand crafting is accepted. Whether true piano black or white lacquer, or either of our specially sourced wood veneers: cherry, or premium rosewood, we only select the finest.
