Does the Submersive have High Pass & Low Pass Crossovers? If so, what are they and what order? Phase control? Is there a manual for it yet? What type of warranty are you offering on the unit?
Thanks in advance,
The SubMersive's amplifier does not have a variable high/low pass crossover, as almost all surround processors have a 4th order low pass incorporated into their bass management setup. In a dedicated stereo system, I much prefer an outboard crossover that will then allow the mains to be relieved of their deep bass duty. In systems that would typically use a SubMersive for stereo listening, I feel an outboard crossover is well justified, as most won't route the signal through a subwoofer in such a system. I recommend users incorporate some form of EQ, be it internal to their processor, or an external device like a Velodyne SMS-1 to maximize performance. The SMS-1 makes it easy to see the approximate in-room frequency response. Other external EQs and DSP processors are more capable and more flexible, but require a measurement system to make useful settings. Room EQ Wizard is free software that is quite capable for this purpose, and there are also programs like TrueRTA if you want to add this very useful capability. Of course you can also hire someone to aid in this sort of optimization. The HAA organization is a good place to start looking for professionals in your area. I'll come back later and add in some links to HAA and Room EQ Wizard. The manual is still a work in progress. Warranty is 3 years from time of receipt of the subwoofer. The Warranty covers any defects in materials and workmanship, excluding obvious misuse or accidental damage. Thank you for the questions. Please feel free to e-mail or PM me with any specific purchase related questions. Best Regards,
