Magico Introduces The QSub Subwoofers


Magico-QSub-18-subwoofer-small.jpgMagico announced the company's first subwoofers - the QSub-18 and the QSub-15. Built around the Q platform, the QSubs are reportedly capable of delivering 136 dB sound pressure level with less than 1% total harmonic distortion at 20Hz.

The QSub-18 weighs over 550 pounds and has a power handling capability of 8,000W. Due to the enormous sound pressure buildup, the pliable walls of typical enclosures absorb a tremendous portion of the energy generated by the drivers, leading to distortion and massive group delay (smearing). Magico claims the QSub can reach an internal sound pressure level of to 175dB - the equivalent of a commercial jet at takeoff - with less than 1% displacement of common enclosures.

Two woofers, each capable of 34mm of linear excursion and handling power of 8,000 Watts, are mounted in 2" thick aluminum baffles and fire adversely in phase to cancel out driver-borne resonances and lower the tremendous internal pressure.

At the heart of the QSub is a new digital amplifier equipped with a 7,000VA power supply and regulated output stage. It develops reportedly 6,000W. Designed to operate in two-channel music or theater systems, the QSub has an onboard digitally-controlled active crossover for integration with the main loudspeakers. The controller can also be bypassed for home theater use.

The QSub can be ordered in Magico's M-CAST range of satin colors or their signature hard black anodized finish.

The US Retail Price of the Magico QSub-18 is $36,000 and the QSub-15 is $22,000. Hard anodized finished is available at an additional cost. Delivery will begin in Q4 2013.
