Big Bass With No Floor Space!
How do you get Reference quality performance (i.e. phenomenal output, breathtaking clarity, superb extension and speed!) out of an in-wall subwoofer without it tearing your wall to shreds with the first big explosion or tympani crescendo"
Serious high-output subwoofers produce real energy. However, the majority of in-wall subwoofers out there don't (read: CAN'T!) produce serious bass, so vibrational energy isn't an issue. Not so with the RVC-12SQ in-wall subwoofer. It's like a dog off the leash. Free from the constraints of conventional in-wall design, boasting dual state-of-the-art 14 drivers in a cutting-edge Vibration Canceling Design Architecture, it's free to dig deeper for new levels of articulate, soul'stirring bass while chasing new heights in performance.
We're Stirring Up Good Vibrations
Bass frequencies are notorious for stirring up wall vibrations - not a good thing! Conventional in-wall subs excite these vibrations through a reactive force opposite to that created by the movement of the voice coil. We turned things around. In the RVC-12SQ the two woofers fire in phase, in opposite directions. This results in a physical cancelation of wall vibrations.
Paired with a matching Paradigm X amp and enhanced by the critically acclaimed Paradigm Perfect Bass Kit digital room correction system (sold separately), RVC-12SQ delivers bass that will rock your world, not your walls.
For new construction an optional BX-12SQ backbox is designed to maximize output by adding precision low-noise ports. In truth, with the use of this backbox, performance is even a notch better!
Dual State-of-the-Art Side-Mounted 4 (102 mm) x 14 (356 mm) Mineral-Filled Co-Polymer Polypropylene Cones. Highly damped and tremendously rigid cone provides tight, well-defined low-frequency response with a weight and authority that does justice to the most challenging music and movie material.
Pleated LCS Linear Corrugated Surround features Ultra-Long-Travel Suspension. The over-molded design produces truly exceptional peak-to-peak cone movement producing higher output and lower distortion-every bass note sounds distinct. Cone ribbing increases stiffness, reducing resonances to inaudible levels.
State-of-the-Art Motor Structure / FEA-Optimized 1/2-lb (0.19 kg) Super-Neodymium Magnets. 1 (25 mm) 6-layer voice-coil, anodized high-temperature aluminum former and dual Nomex® cloth spiders. The huge ceramic/ferrite magnets generate a truly enormous magnetic forcefield in the gap ... always a plus in a subwoofer!
One-Piece High-Pressure Ultra-Rigid Die-Cast Chassis and Immovable MDF Medium Density Fiberboard Mounting System. State-of-the-art system! A superbly rigid structure that easily withstands every decibel of the enormous power generated by the two state-of-the-art 4 x 14 bass drivers! NOTE: A backbox is optional with this subwoofer.
Impedance Matching Switch. Allows use with X-300 or X-850 amplifiers.
