The RMS22ac is a dual 12 inch, direct-radiating reference subwoofer that is designed to provide the precise transient response and extended low-frequency response required of a studio subwoofer but with the power handling and output capability required in larger spaces. Its 4-inch voice coils, strong neodymium magnets, and innovative laminar flow ports permit low-frequency extension to 22 Hz in an enclosure of the same size as the RM22ac Dual 12 inch Coaxial Reference Monitor. The RMS22ac is available both in the standard studio version, which includes four M6 mounting points for use with third-party isolation feet and in an installation version which includes twelve M10 eyebolt points and two M10 yoke points.
Four back panel selectable presets allow a user to select a 4th order 80 Hz low pass filter for conventional applications, or an 8th order 120 Hz low pass filter for LFE applications. Additional presets to optimize the response for use with RM22ac or RM28ac full range Reference Monitors. A full complement of input filters and delay, as well as signal levels and amplifier status, may be accessed via Ethernet, using Armonía Pro Audio Suite™ control software. In addition, a pre-output EQ stage is available for programming custom presets. These presets may be saved and later recalled using the back panel Preset Select button or software.
The RMS22ac’s robust transducers are powered by two 1600 watt amplifier channels, designed and manufactured in Italy by Powersoft. The amplifier incorporates state-of-the-art Class-D technology with Power Factor Correction to produce extremely high efficiency, low noise, and low intermodulation distortion.
The RMS22ac is primarily intended for use as a mid-to-far-field subwoofer in recording studios and A/V production suites; but it is also an ideal choice for cinemas, museum exhibit spaces, multimedia presentation facilities, boardrooms, and high-end home theaters: any environment in which pristine audio quality is desired and a protective grille is not necessary.
