[AES] Unity Audio Avalanche
Unity Audio will preview the forthcoming Avalanche sub-woofer at the AES San Francisco 2012 show.
This third product in their monitoring range is designed to compliment the brands existing Rock and Boulder for those that want extra SPL and low frequency extension but also can be used in conjunction with other monitor brands.
In keeping with the Unity Audio's Rock and Boulder philosophy, the Avalanche has been designed by Kevin Van Green and retains the sealed cabinet approach but it has a dual chamber with an aperiodic vent which is designed to give the benefits of a sealed cabinet (no port noise, tight fast accurate bass reproduction, but it also increases the bass response from a smaller cabinet.)
The Avalanche uses a downward firing 12” woofer designed for sub-woofer application in a 65 litre enclosure. The input circuitry uses two transformer balanced XLR inputs feeding Burr Brown op amps. Amplification is by two Rock low frequency custom E.A.R discrete Class A/B amplifiers running in parallel totalling 150 watts which are on rubber isolation mounts, the outputs are on two XLR connectors. The cabinet sits on four large adjustable solid brass spikes. The Avalanche extends low frequencies down to 30Hz with the -3dB point down being 23Hz.
The cabinet dimensions are 490mm high x 430mm wide x 430mm deep without spikes.
