SUBLOW

Bass: An Element of Gut Feeling.

As the deep frequencies of the audio reinforcement specter are fundamental for each musical expression the development of the subwoofer demands GAE’s utmost attention.

GAE develops professional subwoofers always following the same intentions:

    optimization of the efficiency/bandwidth-proportion and the damping-characteristics
    selection of the best LF-loudspeakers – under mechanic as well as acoustic aspects
    convenient handling and high compatibility to all GAE fullrange-systems
    perfect acoustic characteristics supported by digital controllers of the latest generation
    flexible opportunities of combination due to a setting-data-base for modern digital system controllers

 


GAE BR8NGAE BR8N
GAE BR8N The GAE BR8N bass system is a perfect low frequency extension ideally suited to the small units of the System-series. Driven by an active crossover the BR8N expands the lower frequency range of a passive top. Special loudspeaker parameters of the 8” woofer together with an optimized and exceeding small vented enclosure achieve an exceptional performance and dynamics. The lowest cutoff frequency was adjusted in favour of sound and acoustical power capacity and the demands for fixed installations. Compactness and elegant design predestine the BR8N for installations with highest quality demands but limited spacing.
The system is equipped with one handling recess and connection plate hidden on the back. The extended unobstructed ventilation channel prevents from airstream noises and compression effects. The multi-layered, birch-ply enclosure is sealed with a black structure varnish. The front is protected by a metal front grill with high permeability and fronted with acoustic foam. The 2 connectors are of linked Neutrik Speakon 4-pole type. An connection to 2+/2- instead of 1+/1- is possible. Special colours and surfaces are optional. GAE BR8N
Characteristics:

    subwoofer to supply the smaller loudspeakers of the System-series
    extremely good power/size-ratio
    distinguished but discrete enclosure design
    incorporates 8" N/Dym long excursion cone driver
    extended frequency response from 50Hz – 250Hz (-3dB)

GAE ETAMAX "h-max"GAE EtaMax
GAE EtaMax GAE’s uncompromising bass horn construction is called ETAMAX. It allows the reproduction of low frequencies with a minimum distortion and high sound pressure levels. State-of-the-art simulation programs and elaborated enclosures are the basis for the optimized horn contour and its folding. By the help of the backwards enclosure-chamber the parameters of the 18’’ driver are exactly adjusted to the acoustic situation of the pressure chamber and the sound conduction. The acoustical resistance thus obtained damps the driver optimally and produces a frequency specter largely expanded to the low specter without bothersome resonances.

By stacking several ETAMAXs this effect is redoubled, leading to a major horn construction unsurpassed in sound and power. ETAMAX reproduces low frequencies exactly, powerfully and with noticeable directivity. It is especially apt to back up far-ranging sound systems (as for instance GAE’s WaveLine) in the bass range.

The particular economy of this bass horn construction becomes apparent with big sound engineering challenges as the usual number of high power amplifiers can be drastically reduced. The operation of an "ideal" 30 Hz horn (6 pieces of ETAMAX) with a total impedance of 2x 2.7 ohms and an appropriate 2 channel amplifier is highly economic. As the complex parts of the impedance virtually vanish into thin air such an application offers a perfect resistance to the amplifier.
The toll taken by these special ETAMAX construction-characteristics rests with its dimensions, but the ingenious positioning of the 10 handholds simplifies the handling. Aluminum fixing bolts in the top and the bottom of the enclosure close to its back guarantee a save stacking. The enclosure is sumptuously built of high quality multi-layered birch-ply and sealed with a black structure varnish by standard. Different RAL colours are available. The loudspeaker’s baffle and it’s components are protected by a solid metal front grill which is backed with an opaque acoustic foam.

Characteristics:


    high performance bass horn for powerful sound engineering
    mirror-symmetrically applicable enclosure construction for axially symmetric large horns
    perfect enclosure design and stable mechanical processing for the hard touring routine
    frequency response down to 30 Hz (-3dB) when ideally applied
