Powered Subwoofer: The DXS series power subwoofer features a
customized, high-power handling 18" woofer with superior damping and a 4" voice
coil magnet, for a clean, accurate delivery of the massive power produced by its
800W RMS/1020W Peak Class-D high-efficiency amplifier. The DXS series powered
sub has an all-new band-pass design that produces extremely high SPL by
drastically reducing the distortion.
D-XSUB Processing: D-XSUB is a newly-developed processing
technology exclusively for subwoofers that dynamically controls the low
frequency range. Powerful D-XSUB processing allows you to choose from either
Normal, Boost or Xtended LF settings. You can select either mode in accordance
with various applications and musical genres.
- Normal mode gives you the ideally balanced low-frequency response.
- Boost mode provides a more tight and focused bass.
- Xtended LF mode drops the low end frequencies down-even further for
thunderous bottom end that delivers.
Low-Pass Filter: The powered sub features a variable
low-pass filter. You can set the low-pass filter's cutoff frequency at 120Hz,
100Hz, or 80Hz. The filter will cut the frequency components above the specified
threshold. If you are using the DXS series sub along
with a DXR series PA speaker, match this frequency to DXR's HPF switch setting.
Polarity Switch: In most cases, the Normal setting is
recommended. However, the Inverted setting may improve low-range response,
depending on the type and location of the speaker system. Try both settings and
select the one that produces the best low-end sound.
Balanced Inputs & Outputs: The powered subwoofer features a
balanced stereo XLR input for connection to a DXR-series speaker's
"through"-output or the balanced XLR output of a mixer. The balanced stereo XLR
outputs allow the powered sub's input signal to be passed through unaffected to
another sub, mixer, or component.
DSP-Controlled Advanced Protection System: Powerful
protection circuits ensure secure protection in the speaker unit, amplifier
unit, and power supply unit. This
protection functionality promotes optimal performance of each component and
optimum reliability without distortion even in challenging environments. LED
indicators will light and the speaker output will be muted in the following
- If amplifier overheating is detected
- If DC output is detected
- If over-current is detected
