bass: THe eternal struggle

Boomy, muddy bass?

Everyone loves the huge sound and dynamics of a great floorstander. And the experience is often great, except for one thing. The bass. In typical listening rooms, boomy, muddy bass is the norm.

Bass right on this song, wrong on the next?
The response is often uneven, making the bass either too loud or too soft depending on the song or volume. And despite the size and number of drivers, the dynamics often leave something to be desired.

Let's try something different.

take control over the room

Traditional speakers radiate sound in all directions. This means less energy at the listening position and severe reflections from the walls. This leaves you with a distorted and inferior version of the original sound. It also messes up the bass.

While our statement monitor MANTA takes room and directivity control to the extreme, the SBS.1 has a few tricks up its sleeve as well. Separating bass to subwoofers combined with good directivity control, means the SBS.1 will sound similar wherever you are in the room, and bass response is better controlled.

Add the coax driver to the mix, and you are rewarded with a huge soundstage. Instruments float in your listening space - deep, wide and precisely located.

Many speaker manufacturers recommend that you place your speakers 0.5-1m from the wall. This is often challenging, especially in smaller rooms.

SBS.1 is designed to be placed as close as 10cm from the wall, and still produce a huge soundstage! SBS.1 is the natural choice both for cramped studios and minimalist living rooms. 

  • Dimensions of a medium size bookshelf speaker, but the dynamic capacity of a large, expensive floorstander.
  • Unbelievable dynamics even in large rooms!
  • Natural, full sound and a wide, precise soundstage.
  • Integrates perfectly with our bass modules out of the box - easy setup!

10D or Inkognito

  • Most important: The sound quality is the same with both.
  • While the 10D is compact with a traditional shape, the Inkognito has a "pizza box" shape. It can be placed either horizontal on the floor, or vertically against a wall.
  • You can enjoy high playback levels even with the Inkognito. For larger rooms, note that the 10D can play roughly twice as loud as the Inkognito.
  • Inkognito has a single driver, the 10D has dual drivers.

one or two?

  • While one bass module may work well, if you have the space we recommend two.
  • Two bass modules will give you more power and a more even bass response in your room.

Loudness vs room size

  • Single Inkognito: Small & medium rooms, you can play loud
  • Dual Inkognito: Small, medium & large rooms, you can play very loud
  • 10D: Small & medium rooms, you can play very loud
  • Dual 10D: Small, medium & large rooms, you can play extremely loud.
