Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has released its LFC-12v Subwoofer — the slimmest and most affordable model offered by the company to date.
The LFC-12v is an ideal performer in rooms where multiple subwoofers are desired or where space is at a premium.
The high-sensitivity architectural subwoofer is equipped with a 12-inch, 700W driver and achieves a maximum output of 117dB from a 6-inch deep cabinet.
The professional-grade 12-inch driver employed in PRO's LFC-12v includes a high-powered motor system designed with the most demanding music and movie soundtracks in mind. Its over-sized, four-inch voice coil aids with heat dissipation, greatly improving the thermal stability of the driver, allowing the LFC-12v to handle long periods of high output playback without over-heating and with no threat of sonic compression or damage. The subwoofer's four front-firing free-flow ports enhance the LFC-12v's low-frequency extension and output, resulting in a highly dynamic listening experience.
At 14-inches wide, the LFC-12v's enclosure is designed to fit into a standard stud bay. Its shallow 6-inch depth lets it function as a primary subwoofer in media and multi-purpose rooms with limited space, or as an in-wall solution for side and rear wall placement in elaborate multi-subwoofer home theaters. Designed for use with PRO's DSP driven amplifier / processors, integrators can select between power levels of 300, 450, and 1000 watts per channel to drive the subwoofer. Rated at a sensitivity of 96dB with one watt of input power, this subwoofer is quick to provide dynamic, visceral bass power in every installation.
"The advantages of using multiple subwoofers in a home theater or media room are well known, but the floor space they require can be a real issue. Our LFC-12v addresses space constraints while maintaining the high-output performance and visceral slam that customers and integrators expect from PRO subwoofers," said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder.
PRO's DMA and PMA amplifiers provide power to the LFC-12v while enabling in-room performance calibration via PRO SoundTools, a proprietary software program that makes it easy for integrators to attain optimized audio performance in a matter of minutes. For advanced users, PRO SoundTools provides parametric EQ and delay capabilities so installers can address in-room low-frequency modal problems and precisely tune sophisticated multi-subwoofer systems.
