Trinnov Audio’s WaveForming software demonstration for home cinema bass management was one of the most talked about experiences from CEDIA Expo 2023. Following that success and several notable installations at trade shows and with speaker manufacturers, Trinnov Audio is accelerating the technology’s roll-out into selected showrooms and projects.
GrobiTV, based in Kaarst, Germany, has been working with Trinnov since 2018 and was selected as the first dealer in the world to be able to offer and demonstrate WaveForming. With decades of experience in designing, installing, and tuning multi-subwoofer array systems, Grobi was the obvious partner to collaborate with for this initial installation, which was completed in August.
Patrick Schappert, owner of GrobiTV explained, “WaveForming has improved bass reproduction with a precision and dynamic range like we have never experienced before. The noticeable pressure and the audible details have increased significantly in every seat. The difference can be heard and experienced immediately, and our DBA-equipped home cinema was the perfect cornerstone to accommodate WaveForming. Holger Franz from our integration partner Heimkinobau has a unique experience with more than 450 planned and built dual and single bass array solutions.”
Trinnov is now extending this opportunity to a wider group of qualified dealers. Although Trinnov has privately and successfully completed WaveForming trials using more conventional subwoofer layouts, the immediate focus is on systems that deliver the highest possible performance to every seat.
This is a challenge that requires a design-led approach where the number and location of the subwoofers is dictated by the dimensions of the room and the upper frequency of control. For this reason, Trinnov is limiting this early access to projects that meet their current Subwoofer Placement Recommendations Guidelines.
Only Certified Trinnov dealers will be able to submit projects for approval. Interested dealers must contact Trinnov’s U.S. offices, who will provide the link to the project submission form. Once both the dealer and project have been approved, Trinnov will then invite dealers to attend online training where they will be taught how to measure and fine tune using the new WaveForming software.
David Meyerowitz, technical sales manager for Trinnov Audio commented, “We know a lot of Trinnov Altitude owners will want to try out this new software on their own systems. Whilst this will be possible when we get to public release in 2024, this early phase release is focused on qualifying projects that fully comply with our subwoofer placement guidelines. In this way, we can ensure that our performance objectives for this software can be met and demonstrated to customers successfully”.
Trinnov is conducting a webinar on October 19 at Noon Eastern/9AM Pacific, where these recommendations will be explained in detail. The registration link is available here. Dealers with questions can send them by email to email@example.com.
