Recording professionals know that hearing the extreme low frequencies in music is essential for making accurate mixing adjustments and producing the best recordings. The BX Subwoofer easily fulfills this requirement in a powerful and compact package that won’t take up too much of your valuable studio space.
The BX Subwoofer’s frequency response extends down to 20Hz (-3 dB), the lowest audible frequency. It uses the highest-quality components for no-compromise performance: a 10” fiberglass/paper composite driver with an oversized magnet and high-temperature 2” voice coil, powered by a 240-watt Class AB all-discrete internal amplifier with a variable 50-200 Hz crossover. The cabinet is constructed of resonant-free ¾” Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) with 1” front and rear baffles, and is heavily braced to eliminate the extraneous cabinet vibrations that can rob a subwoofer of its impact and articulation.
However, pure acoustic performance is not the only thing that’s important to you. Therefore, we’ve focused on making the BX Subwoofer as easy to connect and convenient to use as possible.
To give it the connection and use flexibility needed to accommodate any system configuration, the BX Subwoofer has a full complement of inputs, outputs and controls.
Two XLR balanced/unbalanced inputs; two TRS balanced/unbalanced inputs; two unbalanced RCA inputs
Two XLR balanced/unbalanced outputs for satellites; two TRS balanced/unbalanced outputs for satellites
- Volume/gain control
- Phase inverse switch for a seamless system frequency response, regardless of the subwoofer’s location in the studio
- Variable 50-200 Hz crossover control to blend perfectly with L/R monitors of all sizes
- Subwoofer bypass footswitch
You’ll find the footswitch particularly useful when you want an instantaneous comparison of how your mix sounds with and without a dedicated subwoofer.
Engineered Especially for M-Audio Monitors
Designed for use with the M-Audio M3, BX Carbon and BX D2 series, the BX Subwoofer delivers the deep bass response necessary to optimize your music, film and multimedia projects. Most of today’s personal audio systems can easily reproduce very low bass frequencies, so it’s critical that your audio production environment allows you to monitor and adjust those frequencies while you’re mixing.
The BX Subwoofer empowers you to do just that. When paired with any M-Audio studio monitor, the BX Subwoofer becomes an indispensible part of a high-performance monitoring system that provides accurate sound over the entire 20-20 kHz audible spectrum. Although we designed the BX Subwoofer with our superlative M-Audio monitors in mind, the BX sub will enhance the low-frequency performance of any brand of high-quality near-field monitor.
