Powerful bass, produced in the digital domain; the Q Acoustics 2070i subwoofer breaks new ground at this price level.
DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING
Marking this subwoofer out from its rivals is it's completely DSP (Digital Signal Processing) driven system with highly efficient class D amplification. This means that, in common with much more expensive subwoofers, the 2070i carries out all its filtering and limiting functions in the digital domain. Digital processing not only gives superior sonic performance through greater precision but also enhanced flexibility and adjustment.
SPEAKER TYPE FUNCTION CONTROL
As an example of the 2070i's enhanced flexibility, you only need to take a look at the speaker type function control. This switch lets you optimise the performance of the subwoofer as to whether you're using bass reflex (ported) or infinite baffle (sealed) speakers.
TWIN CONES FOR ADDED PUNCH
Rather than using one large cone, the 2070i uses two, smaller cones. This has the advantage of offering the same surface area as a larger cone, thus giving you depth and rumble, but also improved speed of bass. Smaller twin cones can move faster and therefore offer a punchier sound with more accurate timing. Thanks to the built-in 150 digital amplifier, power and control are never an issue, either.
CLASS-LEADING CONSTRUCTION QUALITY
In addition to sounding better than most subwoofers at this price the Q 2070i is also better finished. Flush-mounted drive units and curved edges not only improve the aesthetics but also help the sound.
Whatever speakers you might have, such is the flexibility of the 2070i that it's one of the most talented subwoofers in class - deeply impressive!
