XTZ Spirit SUB 12 - Breathtaking bass with highest accuracy
XTZ Spirit SUB 12 was constructed as a powerful yet precise subwoofer with an excellent finish. Due to its very stiff and at the same time light 12" membrane, it is capable to perform any impulse with maximumm fidelity. The 400W amplifier ensures enough power at any time and is very efficient due to the special Class-D technology. But XTZ Spirit SUB 12 is not only a great choice for home cinemas. It also convinces in stereo operation due to the punchy and precise bass. Since the subwoofer offers several room tuning possibilities, it can always be adjusted to the room acoustics or personal preferences.
The 12" long stroke driver which is used for XTZ Spirit SUB 12 originates our development center and is optimized for a perfect stiffness-weight-ratio. Due to the strong magnet system and the 400W amplifier, the subwoofer can perform large deflections with highest accuracy. Spirit SUB 12 achieves an even frequency response over its whole frequency range. The spider is ventilated to avoid any compression effect.
On the backside of the subwoofer there is a switch located which provides three different equalizer settings to adjust the sound of the woofer. It is possible to increase the kickbass or to compensate for a placement near the wall by reducing the deep bass. Furthermore XTZ Spirit SUB 12 is equipped with two bass reflex ports which can be closed with the attached plugs to alter the basic characteristics of the subwoofer.
The massive construction with a 25mm thick front baffle made from MDF and at least 18mm thick side walls contribute strongly to the high weight of the XTZ Spirit SUB 12. In combination with the additional stifffeners and the huge amount of damping material which is used inside the cabinet, the resonances are reduced to an absolute minimum. Thus the drivers can work under ideal cirumstances and play with highest precision due to the low reverberation inside the cabinet.
Due to the available matte black and matte white high quality multilayer painting, the Spirit SUB 12 integrates easily in every living area. The surface of the subwoofer is polished ornately to achieve a perfect finish. Despite its size the subwoofer appears to be a perfectly processed piece of furniture.
The terminal on the backside offers the connection via mono or stereo rca cable. It also features a high-level-input which is helpful when the amplifier is not featuring any specific subwoofer output. Furthermore it is possible to configure volume, phase and crossover frequency on the terminal. The knob for the choice of equalizer is also located here.
The pluggable cover protects the drivers on the one hand from dust and on the other from possible damage. To ensure perfect sound transmisssion, the cover is sound transparent and does not have any influence on the sound of the speaker. For the white subwoofer, a white cover is offered while the black version comes with a black cover.
The membrane of the woofer driver of XTZ Spirit SUB 12 consists of a long fiber pulp mixture which ensures an optimum stiffness-weight ratio. This very special material has been developed and improved over years to offer perfect properties to reproduce any impulse as authentical as possible. Even at long strokes, this membrane materal suppresses partial oscillation effectively. The complex magnet system provides a linear stroke over the whole range which leads to nearly perfect piston movement and thus highest impulse fidelity. Due to that strong drive, the subwoofer features its linear deep bass and the high SPL capability. Since the resoncance frequency of the driver is very high, XTZ Spirit SUB 12 is able to perform linear and natural over its whole frequency range. Even the rubber surround has been optimized on the driver to minimize resonances and at the same time ensure its long stroke abilities. A high temperature voice coil and optimized drive structure ensures a very high powerhandling. All these features enable the XTZ Spirit SUB 12 to perform extremely precise but still with lots of power for maximum music and home cinema pleasure.
