Energy Speaker Systems Announces New act sub

by October 20, 2004

Energy Speaker Systems is proud to introduce the act sub. The Energy act sub is an 80 Watt RMS, 300 Watt Dynamic powered subwoofer that compliments the extremely successful S8.3, S10.3 and S12.3 subwoofers. The act sub features many of the technological breakthroughs found in its larger siblings while providing a compact, solution based alternative.

The act sub is constructed out of a ¾" MDF enclosure, which is designed to be extremely rigid and free of resonances. The cabinet is built using Energy's double v-groove design, creating decorative tapered edges that are extremely strong, while the dovetail cabinet design increases the overall cabinet rigidity. The act sub features Energy's patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround, a technology that pushes subwoofer performance to an entirely new level. The Ribbed Elliptical Surround eliminates all of the surround distortion found in a half-roll design (typically 14%), increases excursion and maximizes piston area, thereby increasing the subwoofers' efficiency. The computer designed ribs expand and contract as the surround moves, especially under high output, to eliminate any surround deformation that would occur with a traditional surround. The Ribbed Elliptical Surround is mated to our exclusive ceramic/glass/mica deposit hybrid cone, which is extremely stiff, lightweight and resonance free. The front ported, down-firing design allows the speaker to use the floor as a loading surface, increasing output. The combination of cone material and surround design creates an incredibly potent subwoofer, performing at levels only once achieved by extremely large and expensive subwoofers.

The act sub offers low and high level inputs, as well as level control and infinitely adjustable crossover controls. The act sub is available in a shadow silver finish.

The act sub will ship in October 2004. For more information contact Energy Speaker Systems, or visit: www.energy-speakers.com .
