Loudspeaker manufacturer Fulcrum Acoustic has unveiled its new CS118 subcardioid subwoofer module.
Featuring a single, high-power 18-inch direct radiating woofer in a compact enclosure, the CS118 is specifically designed for permanent installation in a wide range of applications and venues, including performing arts centres, houses of worship, sporting facilities, and nightclubs.
Incorporating Fulcrum's patent-pending Passive Cardioid Technology, the CS118 reduces excessive rear low frequency radiation by up to 10dB without the need for additional drivers, amplifiers, or signal processing. Its subcardioid pattern is created via a ‘highly refined’ acoustical circuit balancing the LF driver's position with the enclosure's depth and volume, along with rear ports incorporating a precisely calibrated resistive element.
The CS118 also uses Fulcrum's proprietary TQ processing to deliver what the company describes as exacting pattern control, ‘unequalled’ performance and precision transient response, even at the highest SPLs.
