KEN KREISEL INTRODUCES HIS NEXT GENERATION OF STUDIO AND ULTIMATE HOME THEATER PUSH-PULL-PULSAR™ SUBWOOFER SYSTEMS...INNOVATIVE, ELEGANT, AND MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER!
CLASSIC KEN KREISEL SIGNATURE STUDIO SOUND™...FAST, TIGHT, & MUSCULAR WITH AN IMPECCABLE SENSE OF SONIC BALANCE
CLASSIC MODERN LOOK...DARING AND BOLD WITH AN IMPECCABLE SENSE OF VISUAL BALANCE
A single DXD-12012 sets a new standard for both professional studio and high end home theater subwoofers, but, it also is your first step to a KEN KREISEL Ultimate Signature Studio Subwoofer System…
Ken Kreisel's professional studio subwoofers and their consumer equivalents, are some of the most coveted and sought after subwoofers by studios and audiophiles worldwide. Now, Ken Kreisel basically reinvents the ultimate studio and home theater subwoofer with the introduction of his next generation of SIGNATURE STUDIO SOUND SUBWOOFER SYSTEMS featuring BALANCED 3D HIGH VELOCITY PUSH-PULL-PULSAR DEEP BASS PRESSURE WAVEFRONT Technology™ available in the DUO and QUATTRO versions of the DXD-12012. The unique design concept is a modular upgradeable approach. DXD-12012 cabinets are engineered to interlock in pairs forming a mechanically balanced stacking arrangement using heavy gauge interlocking hardware and neoprene coupling pads. Up to two pairs (4 cabinets) of DXD-12012's can be interlocked and stacked forming an 8 foot tall column which produces an explosive 3D sound pressure wavefront in the studio or home theater.
DRIVER - OVERVIEW
Surround Design: The carefully designed, shaped, and custom molded surround is made from a select NBR formulation (NITRILE RUBBER-acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer). This formulation provides for minimum mass, maximum linearity, ideal "silent high dynamic motion" characteristics, and excellent thermal stability. It does require some initial driver "break-in time" for best performance, usually several hours of very heavy use. A specially recorded KEN KREISEL™ break-in test disc will be available in the future which will maximize break-in effect, minimize break-in time, and minimize neighbor complaints.
Spider Design: The spider is comprised of a unique blend of cotton and pure NOMEX for extreme linearity, low mass and high strength and durability.
Magnetic Structure Design: The magnetic structure uses an optimized undercut T-style pole piece design as well as an optimized aluminum shorting ring. These two elements allow for maximum magnetic field linearity and symmetry which in turn leads to reduced distortion and controlled driver inductance.
Voice Coil Design: The ultra high temperature voice coil is precision wound on a black anodized aluminum bobbin for maximum cooling and uses Asymmetrical Centering to assure Optimized Magnetic Field Symmetry, which is necessary for low distortion. The voice coil is optimized and fine tuned using a laser guided Klippel Measurement System and state-of-the-art FEA (Finite Element Analysis) Electromagnetic Field Simulation software. Further voice coil cooling is accomplished by a unique Airflow Maximizer Design™, whereby optimized cone perforations behind the dust cap force hot air to exhaust and cool air to draw in around the voice coil. All this is accomplished with absolute minimum air turbulence, resulting in an extremely well cooled and yet "quiet" driver with superb power handling characteristics, as well as very minimal high power thermal compression which in turn provides greater dynamic range.
AMPLIFIER - OVERVIEW
Front-end Signal Processing Circuit Design: The Totally Pure High Performance Analog circuit design used in the new KEN KREISEL™ subwoofers provides all the analog audio processing for the BALANCED (XLR) AND UNBALANCED (RCA) Input Circuitry, Direct Pass-Through Output, BASS LEVEL Control, EQ Parameters, Low-Pass FILTER and Phase Control. This Professional Grade Pure Analog circuitry is preferred by top studio recording and mixing engineers, as it does not have the inherent latency and re-digitization problems associated with subwoofers that have a DSP front-end. The balanced XLR input uses a High Performance Professional Instrumentation type balanced circuit design, which can even help eliminate hum in some unbalanced situations were a ground loop exists (requires a special RCA to XLR cable available separately).
Cabinet Design: Sealed Box with "raw" driver in the box exhibiting a "Q" of .5 - .707 (before any electronic EQ) which results in optimum transient performance with a natural roll-off of 12dB/octave. The hand buffed and polished high gloss MDF side panels are 25mm thick with an additional 18mm panel on the driver side for further reinforcement. The top panel is 25mm, the rear panel is 18mm and the bottom driver mounting panel is 18mm and is further reinforced with a 12.5 mm panel. The body of the cabinet is covered with beautiful simulated black leather.
*Please note that two KEN KREISEL 12” drivers approaches or equals the cone area of a single 18” driver.
