hs-20 Ultra-Compact Dual 10-inch ACM Subwoofer

 

hs-20 Features

Active Compliance Management: ACM is a patent-pending, unique hybrid design that combines the attributes of direct radiating and band-pass configurations to reduce distortion and increase sound pressure output while decreasing box size.

Tons of horsepower: Onboard amplifier supplies a total of 1600 watts (burst pink noise) power – (each woofer has t’s own amplifier channel with 500W pure long term continuous sine wave power).

Purpose-designed transducers: Dual 10-inch, long-excursion woofers with dual layer, inside/outside wound 64 mm voice coils

Built for the road: Premium birch plywood enclosure with extensive internal bracing and a highly-durable Dura Coat finish.

SystemVUE software: Mac and Windows compatible software provides access to networks and device-level parameters such as speaker protection, input/output levels, volume, mute, delay and input sources

Standard IP for easy networking onboard: Simply plug in, and the system automatically connects to virtually any kind of IP configuration.

hs-20 Applications

  • Portable and installed live performance venues
  • High-impact audio/visual presentations
  • Theatrical sound design
  • Sound reinforcement rental companies
  • Performing arts centers
  • Themed entertainment facilities

The hs-20 utilizes VUE’s revolutionary, patent pending Active Compliance Managment (ACM) technology to reset the size-to-performance benchmark for ultra-compact subwoofer systems. The combination of ACM and the hs-20’s highly-sophisticated onboard electronics result in massive amounts of pure, clean low end energy from a dual 10-inch configuration that’s no larger than most single 10-inch designs.

All Tech’d Out

VUE’s patent-pending ACM technology combines both band-pass and vented alignments into a single enclosure. The hs-20 places two high performance, 10-inch transducers into a common vented chamber. One woofer’s frontal radiation is direct, while the second woofer’s frontal radiation drives the band-pass chamber.

To make the two ACM subsections combine acoustically we use sophisticated DSP to precisely align the phase arrivals of the front facing woofer, the common chamber vent and output of the bandpass chamber vent.  The powerful built-in amplifier sends 500W of pure sine wave power (800W “burst” ) with a unique optimized signal to each woofer. The combination of 1600 watts of burst power produces over 135 dB peak output in a half space environment (ground stacked).

The combination of ACM, precision-engineered transducers, and sophisticated electronics allows the hs-20 to deliver much higher output throughout its operating bandwidth from  a deceptively small footprint.

Connects to Virtually Everything

Like all h-Class systems the hs-20’s inputs include analogue XLR, AES/EBU Digital (2 Channels) and Dante network audio streams.  You can elect from each input and channel using SystemVUE software and it will auto fall over from digital to analogue for maximum reliability.

SystemVUE Network

Like all h-Class systems, the hs-20 ships with networking capabilities already onboard. There’s no need for additional cards or retrofitting.  VUE uses standard IP protocols to simplify the networking process. Simply plug in and the hs-20 will automatically connect to virtually any kind of IP configuration. Users can then access and monitor network and device-level parameters through our SystemVUE software.

Ruggedly Handsome

We’ve housed all this rich, subwoofery-goodness in a rugged enclosure that’s manufactured from premium-grade, birch plywood with extensive joinery and internal bracing for resonant free operation. A highly-durable, 6-step Dura Coat finish looks great and protects the hs-20 through many years on the road. The hs-20 cabinet also comes with a 20 mm theaded insert for a speaker pole on both the top and side of the system.
