One of the most welcomed trends to occur within the consumer audio market has been addition of multiple subwoofers to home theater and other music systems.
The trend first gained momentum after research conducted by Harman International and its engineering staff, which includes Dr. Floyd Toole, Todd Welti and Allan Devantier were released for public consumption. Later after the theories were presented to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) the concepts started to see implementation across the audio universe.
Working with the engineering staff at THX, BG Radia and its engineering team took the ideas of multiple subwoofers and applied them to a product it released in 2008 called the BGX Subwoofer system. Two years later BG Radia is now offering a new product addition to the BGX subwoofer family: the BGX-S6B.
The BGX-S6B is a half-size version of the original multi-driver S12B bass module and the 14-inch square, less than 4-inch deep unit can be configured with one of the company’s companion A2 1,200-watt dual channel amplifier/processor to form a competitively priced low-frequency reproduction system that’s suitable for small- and medium-sized rooms.
