SoundTube, the MSE Audio brand perhaps best known for its Pendant Speaker, has developed the SM1001 Surface-Mount Subwoofer for background and foreground audio installations where high-quality, true bass response and rapid installation are critical.
The new subwoofer will begin shipping this month from the company’s Jacksonville, FL, manufacturing facility.
The SM1001 is a 10-inch subwoofer with a passive radiator to generate deep, high output bass response. The SM1001 uses a proprietary 10-inch high-excursion, ultra-long throw mica-graphite polypropylene driver and a downward-firing bass radiator.
The efficient long-throw designs are described by the company as “superbly linear,” making the SM1001 an ideal complement to any music system. The driver is attached to a 1.5-inch MDF baffle to eliminate cabinet distortion.
“After releasing our pendant subwoofers, dealers requested a surface-mount bass solution. The SM1001 fills those application needs,” said Mike Sipe, vice president of sales. “Bass adds excitement, and this subwoofer gives integrators a powerful product with versatile installation options to bring out the emotion in the music.”
The flexible SM1001 delivers crystal-clear bass and unparalleled low frequency coverage from a ceiling, wall, corner, hanging or free standing. When powered by the P350 high-current amplifier, the subwoofer provides a peak output of 116 dB at 1 meter. Sensitivity at 1m and 1W is 88 dB SPL. Housed in a 12.5 inches D x 24.5 inches W x 15.5 inches H cabinet with legs (14 inches H without legs), the made-in-the-USA subwoofer weighs 29.1 lbs. and is available in white and black.
