Neumann presents the KH 805, a new active subwoofer expanding the brand's range of studio monitoring products.
According to Neumann, the combination of the new KH 805 subwoofer and KH 120 or KH 310 loudspeakers is "ideal for tracking, mixing and mastering in recording, broadcasting, and post-production studios".
A 10” driver, solid cabinet and carefully designed ports are meant to ensure tight, articulate and distortion-free low-frequency reproduction down to 18 Hz, even at high playback levels. Fourth-order crossovers and adaptable acoustical controls allow for seamless 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 can also be used 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 be used to make a Plane Wave Bass Array™ system, so as to improve lateral consistency in the listening area and further increase low frequency linearity.
To reduce cabling, the subwoofer electronics can be located remotely, allowing the cabinet to be mounted flush to a wall.
The KH 805 active subwoofer is available now. No MSRP available.
