Golden Ear SuperSub XXL
Housed within the gorgeous piano-gloss black enclosure are two horizontally-opposed 12˝ ultra-long-throw active drivers and two vertically-opposed 15˝ x 13˝ planar infrasonic radiators, driven by a 1600 watt Class D Digital amplifier. This dual-plane, patented* dynamic inertial-balancing preserves and focuses all the energy produced by the transducers in order to more effectively move the air in the room, rather than wasting energy moving the box. It also enables you to hear all the fine subtle details in your recordings.
The benefit is an achievement in state-of-the-art, best subwoofer performance that, not only “rocks the house”, as Big Picture Big Sound’s Chris Boylan raved, but is also, “strong, pure and controlled” as Sound&Vision magazine’s Mark Fleischman wrote. With two active drivers separated horizontally in space, as well as two passive radiators separated vertically, the driver to-room coupling is distributed much more smoothly, for in-room bass performance that can’t typically be achieved with a single subwoofer.
GoldenEar’s new SuperSub™ Series subwoofers are ultra-high performance compact subwoofers which incorporate many recently developed unique and advanced technologies and components. The goal was to create beautifully styled, finely finished, reasonably sized subwoofers that could generate very low frequency pressure waves of extremely high amplitude, while delivering accurate and precise low frequency performance that is both highly impactful and extremely musical. “Sonic bliss … remarkably powerful … they kick ass, totally … down to the infrasonic” – Mark Henninger, AVS. In order to achieve this, we have incorporated a unique, patented† , 360 degree dual-plane inertially-balanced driver and sub-bass radiator topology, combined with a very advanced electronics package.
With two active drivers separated horizontally in space, as well as two passive radiators separated vertically, the driver to-room coupling is distributed much more smoothly, for in-room bass performance that can’t typically be achieved with a single subwoofer. The electronics packages that drive the fully balanced array are a 1600 watt (XXL) and 1400 watt (X) Class D Digital amplifier based on the design originally developed for the GoldenEar Triton One tower.
