VUE Audiotechnik hs-20 Dual 10-inch, ACM™ Powered Subwoofer System
Active Compliance Management: ACM is a patent-pending, unique hybrid design that combines the attributes of direct radiating and band-pass configurations to reduce distortion and increase sound pressure output while decreasing box size.
Tons of horsepower: Onboard amplifier supplies a total of 1600 watts (burst pink noise) power – (each woofer has t’s own amplifier channel with 500W pure long term continuous sine wave power).
Purpose-designed transducers: Dual 10-inch, long-excursion woofers with dual layer, inside/outside wound 64 mm voice coils
Built for the road: Premium birch plywood enclosure with extensive internal bracing and a highly-durable Dura Coat finish.
SystemVUE software: Mac and Windows compatible software provides access to networks and device-level parameters such as speaker protection, input/output levels, volume, mute, delay and input sources
Standard IP for easy networking onboard: Simply plug in, and the system automatically connects to virtually any kind of IP configuration.
VUE’s patent-pending ACM technology combines both band-pass and vented alignments into a single enclosure. The hs-20 places two high performance, 10-inch transducers into a common vented chamber. One woofer’s frontal radiation is direct, while the second woofer’s frontal radiation drives the band-pass chamber.
To make the two ACM subsections combine acoustically we use sophisticated DSP to precisely align the phase arrivals of the front facing woofer, the common chamber vent and output of the bandpass chamber vent. The powerful built-in amplifier sends 500W of pure sine wave power (800W “burst” ) with a unique optimized signal to each woofer. The combination of 1600 watts of burst power produces over 135 dB peak output in a half space environment (ground stacked).
The combination of ACM, precision-engineered transducers, and sophisticated electronics allows the hs-20 to deliver much higher output throughout its operating bandwidth from a deceptively small footprint.
