The E12X-SUB is a compact, lightweight, high performance subwoofer for use with d&b E-Series loudspeakers. The built in passive crossover network allows the E12X-SUB to be operated in parallel to the E8 loudspeaker on the same amplifier channel, greatly extending the low frequency headroom and bandwidth of the systems. Alternatively it can be operated actively driven by its own amplifier channel without the need for any changes to the subwoofer. In Active mode the E12X-SUB can be used to supplement any of the E-Series cabinets. The E12X-SUB cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an impact resistant finish, a handle and an M20 threaded flange on the top to accept the d&b Loudspeaker stand winder M20. The loudspeaker cabinet is also available in Special Color (SC) and Weather Resistant (WR) options. The Weather Resistant option provides an IP55 rating, and enables operation of loudspeakers in changing ambient conditions.
The d&b D20 and 30D amplifiers are recommended to drive the E12X-SUB. The d&b D80, 10D and D6 can also be used. When the E8-X configuration is selected an E12X-SUB can be driven passively in parallel with an E8 from the same amplifier channel.
