Artison, the leader in attachable loudspeakers for flat panel televisions, will ship its first ever freestanding subwoofer, the RCC Nano 1, bringing a new level of performance matched with design to installers, dealers, and audiophiles.
RCC Nano 1
Scheduled to be among the company’s featured products in its CEDIA EXPO 2014 exhibit, the RCC Nano 1 is designed for ease of use, performance, and aesthetics. Measuring only 7.5” x 8” x 9” including feet and grilles, this compact 300 watt powerhouse has the piston area of an oversized 8” woofer. Outfitted with variable crossovers and dual active 6.5” long throw aluminum drivers, the Nano 1 is an ideal choice for delivering omni-directional low-frequency sound waves in any room or zone, regardless of placement. Because of its diminutive size, the Nano 1 provides installers and interior designers with a versatile new option in unobtrusive sub-bass that can be coupled with virtually any high-end audio system.
The Nano 1 incorporates Artison’s industry-leading reactance cancelling (vibration free) design, which insures not only frequency response, but also secure placement – crucial in a freestanding speaker. Constructed of 6061 T6 Aluminum, the Nano’s enclosure is both rigid and thin, which are both highly desirable subwoofer characteristics. Artison’s use of Adsorbing Damping materials and a unique bass-enhancing algorithm allows the inconspicuous Nano 1 to easily compete against subwoofers with a far larger footprint.
“Many installations and audio configurations benefit from a freestanding subwoofer,” said Cary Christie, Artison’s iconic founder and chief designer. “With the Nano 1 subwoofer, our custom installer and CE dealer partners can help their customers achieve optimal bass and special effects reproduction from a compact unit that complements any décor.”
