HONESTLY, if you already own Magico speakers, there’s absolutely no reason now for you to look elsewhere to enhance your system’s lower reaches – the S-SUB from the S-Series line, supplementing the earlier and costlier Q-Sub range, will be available from August.
The vertical enclosure of the S-SUB has curved aluminium side panels machined in-house from half-inch thick extrusions. Careful internal bracing minimises resonance and eliminates any warping of the cabinet from massive sound pressure peaks.
Driving the S-SUB are dual 12-inch Magico woofers, mounted in front in a vertical array; each uses powerful magnet assemblies and stiff aluminium cones that go deep and fast – the claimed frequency response is 15Hz to 150Hz. Undistorted SPL levels of up to 120dB ensure pure visceral thrills.
Powering the S-SUB is brute of a digital amp that delivers 2,500 watts via its 3,000VA power supply and fully regular output stage. A digitally-controlled active crossover ensures seamless integration with the main speakers or a multichannel AV system.
The S-SUB’s compact footprint makes siting along the wall a breeze – each cabinet measures 812.8 x 381 x 487.7mm (h/d/w), although the 113kg weight will require some muscle.
The Magico S-SUB will retail at US$15,000 per unit… small price for the bass equivalent of Mjölnir.
