Unity Audio B.A.B.E. (Boulder Active Bass Extender)
Bass - how low can you go?
The B.A.B.E. transforms the existing 3-way Boulder into a true 4-way monitoring system. With flexible soffit mount or free-standing installation options, the system can be mounted horizontally or vertically. An optional free-standing plinth/spacer is also available.
The 4-way system extends SPL and frequency response.
The sealed cabinet is internally isolated to reduce vibration interference and uses a single 300mm driver with a 125mm voicecoil, designed exclusively to low frequency reproduction.
The system comprises two bass extension cabinets with their own rack mountable 750 watt class D amplifiers and speaker-management. All housed in separate rack mountable units that control all the audio routing, gain, cross-over management, optional EQ and Limiting.
The B.A.B.E. uses an innovative 300mm woofer designed exclusively for sub and low frequencies. The driver employs a huge 130mm Hexatech external voice coil wound with a hexagonal-shaped aluminum coil wire (2-3 times thicker than standard woofers) for accurate music reproduction, superior durability and power handling. This driver delivers an extraordinary combination of audiophile musicality and high power handling.
The B.A.B.E. adds a flexible modular approach enabling a fully 4-way system configured the way you want it, with breathtaking performance.
The B.A.B.E. retains the same sealed cabinet approach used throughout the Unity Audio range. This design approach provides faster, tighter and more accurate linear bass reproduction and results in less phase rotation, reduced time domain ringing, lower group delay and a shallower roll-off slope than inferior ported designs. These characteristics make The B.A.B.E. a natural choice for all critical music applications.
The B.A.B.E. is suitable for all recording and mastering facilities and has been carefully designed to suit all environments and applications.
The system can be used free standing or soffit mounted in either horizontal or vertical configurations without compromising performance.
