Neumann has premiered the KH 805, an active subwoofer for studios. Based on the KH 810 subwoofer, the KH 805 is an option for stereo set-ups in combination with the KH 120 or KH 310 with a response that ranges from below 20 Hz to above 20 kHz.
The KH 805 features a 10″ driver, solid cabinet and tailored ports ensure tight low-frequency reproduction down to 18 Hz, even at high playback levels. Fourth-order crossovers and adaptable acoustical controls allow for integration into existing loudspeaker systems. The KH 805 features a remotely controllable 2.0/0.1 Bass Manager which enables it to be used in many different applications, for example for extending the loudspeaker bass down to 18 Hz, for increasing the maximum SPL of a loudspeaker set-up by up to 8 dB or for reproducing the LFE channel.
The active subwoofer is also an ideal tool to decrease the harmonic and intermodulation distortion of a loudspeaker set-up or to reproduce the Sub signal of a bass-managed multichannel source, and works as an extension for KH 810, KH 870 and KH 805 subwoofer systems. The KH 805 can also be used to make a Plane Wave Bass Array system, which will acoustically improve lateral consistency in the listening area and further increase low frequency linearity.
Neumann’s KH 805 active subwoofer will be available shortly. No official pricing was presented.
