Magico qSub

Magico LLC, has just announced their first two subwoofers – the QSub-18 and the QSub-15.  These two new subwoofers are based on their proven loudspeaker Q platform.  Setting the QSubs apart from their competition is their capability to deliver a claimed 136 dB of sound pressure level at 20 Hz with less than 1% total harmonic distortion. 

The QSub-18 weighs over 550 lbs. and has massive power handling capability of 8,000W.  The QSub can reach an internal sound pressure level of to 175dB – the equivalent of a commercial jet at takeoff – with less than 1% displacement of common enclosures.  Two massive woofers, each capable of 34mm of linear excursion and handling power of 8,000 Watts, are mounted in 2″ thick aluminum baffles and fire adversely in phase to cancel out driver-borne resonances and lower the tremendous internal pressure. 

At the heart of the QSub is a revolutionary new digital amplifier equipped with a 7,000VA power supply and regulated output stage.  Designed to operate in two channel music or theater systems, the QSub has an onboard digitally-controlled active crossover for seamless integration with main loudspeakers. The controller can also be bypassed for home theater use.

The QSub is a fairly compact unit that will not invade the listening environment, and can be ordered in Magico’s M-CAST range of satin colors or their signature hard black anodized finish.  Magico will be demonstrating the QSub-18 at CEDIA 2013 in Denver, Colorado at Booth 3812 from September 26 – 28.
