Austin-based powered loudspeaker manufacturer Bassboss has announced a refresh of its 2-way, self-powered, bi-amplified AT212 powered top.
The new AT212-3K improves upon the performance of the original with the help of a Powersoft Digimod 3004PFC2 amplifier module (pictured above), which doubles the available wattage from 1500W to 3000W and delivers “improved sound quality and higher dynamic power while maintaining light weight and portability.”
DigiMod 3004PFC2 is the first of a new generation of DigiMod models. Its power supply design features both Powersoft’s single stage Power Factor Correction (PFC) and Smart Rails Management (SRM), while Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) allows predictability and eliminates intermodulation artifacts, and built-in protection mechanisms – including limiting – work to ensure longevity.
The AT212-3K includes additional upgrades to capitalise on the amplification of the DigiMod 3004PFC2, including new, more sensitive 12-inch woofers, now with 4-inch voice coils for increased power handling, longer excursion, and deeper bass response, all while improving midrange articulation.
The DM3004’s peak output voltage of 150V allows the AT212-3K to produce 142dB peaks and sustained output of 136dB from a cabinet that weighs just 89 lbs. The AT212-3K maintains the same slim-profile, tight-pack arrayable form factor and rugged birch construction of its predecessor.
“The big difference with the Digimod 3004PFC2 is that it isn’t just more, it’s more AND better. The sound quality of this module is a huge part of its appeal. Its combination of resolution and detail with massive dynamic power allowed us to take the AT212 from competitive to imperative,” said Bassboss president David Lee. “The AT212-3K provides an impressive 6dB of increased output beyond the original without any significant change to weight or size. That’s remarkable on its own, but the “I must have those” responses we hear when demonstrating these boxes are reactions to the sound quality more than the sound pressure level.”
The AT212-3K will launch at $4,795 MSRP and $3,895 MAP.
