Just last week, we told you that Pro Audio Technology was planning to crank out a 266-pound subwoofer. Of course, not everyone needs that much power. Some wouldn’t mind getting close to it, though. If a sub with a 24-inch woofer isn’t what you need, maybe you’ll opt for the Ultima2 Series Rhythm2.
The Ultima2 Series Rhythm2 is a new powered subwoofer from Harman’s Revel brand. It’s got an 18-inch woofer and 2,000 watts of amplifier power packed inside a cabinet that measures 24.6-by-27.9-by-28 inches.
Besides the front-firing woofer, the Ultima2 Series Rhythm2 has a 4-by-1.75-inch Xmax voice coil, a neodymium-magnet motor system, and the ability to deliver bass down to below 20Hz.
If you’re worried about working this unit into your setup, it’s also got built-in DSP room equalization. It even has a full complement of controls and connections, including a configurable electronic crossover with adjustable delay, volume, line-level inputs, a USB input to connect a PC or Mac, and more.
“People expect the very best from Revel Ultima and our Rhythm2 was designed to exceed their expectations,” said Jim Garrett, director of marketing and product management for Harman’s Luxury Audio Group and Loudspeakers. “Although it can deliver prodigious amounts of undistorted deep bass, that’s only part of Rhythm2’s capabilities. Its built-in digital room EQ provides high-resolution EQ and true digital delay, which allows the Rhythm2 to be calibrated to achieve ideal integration in a two-channel or surround sound system.”
Available in a high-gloss piano black and mahogany finish, the Revel Rhythm2 powered subwoofer is selling now with an MSRP of $10,000.
