Phase Technology has been awarded a new patent (#15265773) on its new Bass Extending Technology for architectural speakers. The company’s two new in-wall models, the C1120 and CI130, incorporate the patented technology.

The new technology extends bass lower than an acoustic suspension or bass reflex in-wall or in-ceiling speaker in the same size enclosure. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers generally have rear enclosures that are too small to produce low bass. With this technology advancement, a speaker with the same size rear enclosure will have bass output that extends up to one octave lower than a comparable speaker.

The Bass Extending technology provides two solutions — it incorporates a back box to reduce sound transmission to an adjacent room and lowers the resonance of the speaker. The upshot is the best of both worlds with a cleaner listening experience and a significant boost in bass output.

“This is a real-world problem solving advancement for achieving deeper bass while reducing sound transmission through the rear wall of the room.” says Ken Hecht, MSE Audio Vice president of R&D. “The patent bass extending hybrid enclosure design produces much deeper bass compared to in-wall or in-ceiling speakers using conventional enclosures.
