As powerful as it is agile, the DS12i Sub combines precision and speed to reveal the finest musical detail or movie special effect.
The DS12i Sub is built around a compact, heavy-duty 38 litre cabinet designed to be easily integrated in small to medium sized media rooms. Used singly or ideally deployed in pairs or even two pairs (citing Floyd E Toole, Sound Reproduction: The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms), the DS12i Sub is compact enough for multi-sub installation. Extensive internal cabinet bracing minimises panel resonance ensuring a tight and responsive bass performance.
Capable of achieving 38 Hz and with a sensitivity of 94 dB (1 W = 2.83 V for 8 Ohms) the DS12i Sub will deliver an SPL of 126 dB peak and has recommended amplifier power of 400 - 800 W into 8 Ohms.
