The Ultra Sub 12 powered subwoofer adds new depth and dimension to the music and cinema experience. Deep, powerful, and accurate, the Ultra Sub 12 delivers authoritative low frequency performance with ease while maintaining absolute musical accuracy, pace, detail, and extension. Like its little brother, the Ultra 10, we’ve engineered an all new high performance woofer with a die cast aluminum frame for absolute rigidity and improved power handling. This is coupled to a long throw high BL motor assembly for extended low frequency output and performance. A more powerful version of our new high efficiency power amplifiers features a lightweight switchmode power supply with high current density and excellent peak power reserves. A newly designed input control system with sophisticated dynamics processing, equalization, and signal management redefine performance expectations at this price point.
I had two other subwoofers die on me within 6 months, a Monitor Audio Silver RSW 12 and an Energy S10.3. I replace them with an Ultra Sub 12 and an Ultra Sub 10. I have been impressed by the performance of both, especially the Ultra 12. It blends prefectly with my Monitor Audio RS6 fronts and center. Before this sub I need not realize how "musical my system is. It sounds very good with movies but truly excellent with well recorded music. The 75th Birthday Concert for Quincy Jones on Blu-ray is outstanding to the point that my wife finally expressed her appreciation for the sound of our system.
I now understand what is meant when someone says that a sub is fast, tight and musical. I also find that I prefer the sound of a sealed sub. The sub is wll made and surprisingly compact, which does wonders for the WAF.
