Powerful new model, fitted with dual 18-inch speakers, is now available across the European and Asian markets.
France-based Amadeus, a manufacturer of high-end sound reinforcement systems has released the ML 28 sub.
The company describes the new product as "a new standard in subwoofers, combining unique acoustical properties, high-timbral precision and extraordinary power handling capability."
One of the major features is the proprietary internal reinforcement structure designed to neutralise any standing waves and suppress energy loss caused by vibrations. This construction technique creates an unmatched tonal accuracy for low frequencies, even at high sound pressure levels, the firm says.
As a dual-speaker enclosure, the ML 28 is equipped with two 18-inch (46 cm) high-power transducers with ventilated voice coils, including high-density neodymium magnets and Double Silicon Spider (DSS) to improve excursion control and linearity. The two drivers are positioned in direct-radiating mode. The ML 28 is also equipped with low-velocity laminar ports using progressive termination, which optimise the air streams to limit the effects of port compression and extremity diffraction. The ML 28 offers a sound pressure level of up to 141 dB with a power handling capacity of 5,600 Watts at nominal four-ohm impedance.
Revealing a proprietary manufacturing technique, applied to ML 28, Bernard Byk, co-founder of Amadeus and CEO of Atelier 33, the parent company of the Amadeus brand, explained: “This unique construction technique, resulting from a unique marriage of traditional craftsmanship and advanced technology, creates, among other things, a dramatic cut in the level of cabinet colouration of the sound using a longitudinal and transverse reinforcement crossed structure. It is partly inspired by the internal technicality of our custom studio monitoring systems, which result from processes borrowed from the aircraft industry and in particular the construction of the airplane wings.”Article continues below
Michel Deluc, lead designer at Amadeus, added: “It has been designed to neutralise the standing waves affecting both the sonic clarity and definition of the lowest frequencies. We achieve this through an extremely complex internal reinforcement structure, using a combination of interlocking panels arranged in two perpendicular planes, each hosting several tuned notch resonators.”
