Sunfire has been awarded U.S. Patent #7,844,068 by the United States Patent Office for the StillBass Anti-Shake technology featured in the company’s ultra-thin Sunfire SubRosa Subwoofer.
Sunfire has been awarded a patent for its StillBass Anti-Shake technology featured in the Sunfire SubRosa Subwoofer.
First introduced in 2008, the Sunfire SubRosa Subwoofer was named 2008 Product of the Year by Electronic House.
In-wall subwoofers used to face a huge hurdle: the drywall would crumble and turn to dust from the constant mechanical vibration, Sunfire says. While designing audio components for Sunfire, Bob Carver developed a solution to this problem by utilizing Newton’s Third Law of Motion, using an actuator that moves in opposition to the woofer to virtually eliminate destructive and intrusive mechanical vibration that subwoofers naturally produce. By controlling the subwoofer’s “shake”, StillBass technology allows the woofer to be placed in a wide variety of locations rarely considered for high quality bass. This newly patented technology is only available in Sunfire’s SubRosa Subwoofer.
“Sunfire’s patented StillBass technology shows that we are committed to delivering the ultimate home audio experience through innovative design and an unparalleled attention to detail,” said Mark Weisenberg, general manager, Sunfire.
The Sunfire SubRosa subwoofer features dual 10-inch woofers and combines neodymium magnets with inverted surrounds, resulting in a sealed enclosure with a depth of 3.75-inches. The Subrosa In-Room Subwoofer System comes with an external 2,700 Watt Tracking Downconverter and features infinitely variable crossover, phase and level controls. The system includes balanced XLR, RCA, and speaker level inputs and features auto room correction through use of an included microphone.
