KRK Systems, a member of the Stanton Group of companies, will debut two new powered subwoofers, the KRK12sHO and KRK12s, at Musikmesse 2011 (Hall 6, Stand C52). The KRK12sHO promises a focused bass response for demanding high-level applications, while the KRK12s was designed to be the workhorse subwoofer for music production where a precise representation of the bass frequency spectrum is a necessity.
The KRK12sHO powered subwoofer is said to accurately reproduce bass frequencies down to 29 Hz, and is designed to handle the surround sound arena. The KRK 12sHO cabinet features a 12-inch high-excursion woven Kevlar driver cone set in a curved baffle front plate designed to virtually eliminate diffraction distortion. A front-firing specially designed port provides low-frequency extension while reducing boundary coupling and port turbulence. The integrated power amplifier delivers 400 watts RMS performance yielding a sound pressure level of 113dB music and 116dB peak. The crossover is a fixed highpass 80 Hz with a subwoofer lowpass filter control variable from 60Hz to 160Hz, giving the KRK12sHO a frequency range of 29 to 160 Hz. The cabinet features combination-jack inputs, thermal and overload/clip protection, LFE input gain, XLR outputs, a special subwoofer/line bypass footswitch connection, phase reverse switch and variable phase adjust capabilities.
The KRK12s promises accurate reproduction of the bass frequencies down to 34 Hz. It features a specially designed curved baffle front plate designed to virtually eliminate diffraction distortion, and is said to enhance pure bass reproduction down to 34 Hz from the 12-inch, Kevlar woven high-excursion driver cone. The internally mounted power amplifier yields a 225W RMS power rating that delivers 110dB music and 113dB peak sound pressure levels. The line out, highpass crossover is fixed at 80Hz with a subwoofer lowpass filter variable from 50 to 130 Hz. The cabinet features XLR, ¼-inchTRS and RCA inputs; XLR and RCA outputs; a system volume control with a range of -30dB to +6dB; subwoofer/line out bypass; phase reverse switch; and ground lift switch.
