By PSW Staff • April 23, 2010 The EAW SB2001 EAW has announce the launch of the SB2001 Subwoofer. The dual 21-inch cone driver represents a significant upgrade to the SB1001 in terms of output capability and low frequency extension without a significant increase in size. The result is a new and more powerful subwoofer that has greater impact, power handling and output capability than others in its class. “The pro audio market has seen a recent return of larger format subwoofers – most of which are very expensive and often esoteric, with limited application flexibility,” remarked Nathan Butler, EAW Principal Engineer. “The SB2001 goes lower, gets louder and moves more air – which is a remarkable value, given the cost.” The driver mounting of the SB2001 maximizes cone area and allows for the integration of an extremely low turbulence port while minimizing frontal area, providing the acoustical performance and physical configuration well suited for creating large subwoofer arrays. This benefit is largely derived from the unique V-shaped baffle loading of the transducers. The nearly opposing devices force all of their combined output through an opening that is somewhat smaller than their collective cone size. This compression of energy through a smaller aperture results in phenomenal impact and rewarding growl. The enclosure design integrates 3/8-16 suspension points for installation applications and is fully prepped and ready to receive the user installable quick release rigging kit accessory for touring applications. The EAW SB2001 is now shipping worldwide. EAW Website Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
