VUE Audiotechnik Debuting New hs-20 Compact Subwoofer At Prolight+Sound

VUE Audiotechnik will officially introduce the new hs-20 subwoofer with Active Compliance Management (ACM) technology at the upcoming Prolight+Sound/Musikmesse in Frankfurt, at stand A75 in Hall 8.0.

Originally developed for the company’s hs-28 and hs-25 loudspeakers, VUE’s patent-pending ACM technology combines a unique hybrid transducer alignment with sophisticated onboard electronics to deliver more output and low-frequency impact than more conventional vented designs, while minimizing the need to increase overall enclosure dimensions.

“The hs-20 clearly shows that the performance advantages of ACM technology actually increase as the physical size of the enclosure decreases.” states VUE Audiotechnik CEO Ken Berger. “While both the hs-28 and hs-25 easily outpace any subwoofer near their size, listening to the hs-20 while looking at its compact frame clearly demonstrates the ability of ACM to dramatically change the performance benchmark for compact subwoofers from this point forward.”

The new hs-20 places a pair of custom-engineered, high-powered, long-excursion 10-inch transducers into the ACM alignment. From there, onboard electronics include ACM-optimized DSP and dual-channel, high-efficiency amplifiers capable of maximum output without the need of noisy cooling fans.

Like all h-Class systems, the hs-20 ship with SystemVUE networking as standard. With SystemVUE users can easily connect one or multiple h-Class systems together via wired or wireless Ethernet to a Windows or Macintosh computer. Once connected, SystemVUE Software provides access to a broad selection of network and device-level control and monitoring functions.

The hs-20’s drivers and electronics are housed in a birch plywood enclosure that includes an integrated pole mount. The distinctive grill and handle surrounds receive a durable two-part finish that lays a coat of transparent candy-apple red over a black powered coat base for a deep hue. The signature look is completed with a heavy aluminum rear panel that includes a machined “VUE” logo integrated into the heat sinks. 

The hs-20 ACM subwoofer joins the recently announced h-8 high-definition, full-range loudspeaker as the newest and smallest members of VUE’s rapidly expanding h-Class family.
