Tour-Subwoofer TouringSub18

„This is where the music is“. Where? Exactly, in the sub region. Physically it is about 70% and felt much more.  The sub region is an important part of the sound but what makes a good sub, a good sub? It should play with high dynamics, be compact, robust and have a punchy and warm sound. Requirements which shouldn‘t affect each other but are difficult to combine, we accepted this challenge and created the TouringSub:

The TouringSub18 is a very flexible subwoofer incorporating a durable 18“ neodymium transducer featuring very low power compression, high sensitivity and high power handling, and thus delivering enormously high sonic output. It is your first choice if you need to move air seriously. The basis for its incredible and enduring performance is a proprietary transducer motor ventilation system.

The bass reflex vent cross-section area corresponds to 75% of the membrane surface area – port compression effects are non-existent. Tuned to 42 Hz it is able to extend the frequency response of any PA system down to 35 Hz. Its upper crossover frequency can be as high as 120Hz. A special feature of the AD-System TouringSub are its flexible recessed stacking pads offering numerous stacking options: Standing upright or lying, rotated or alternating for cardioid setups, etc.  Appropriate DSP presets for cardioid or endfire subwoofer array applications are provided with our Impuls series amplifiers naturally.
