New Bass Focus Technology
Nov 8th, 2016 at 10:04am
 
As gl mentioned recently Soundlab has incorporated a new technology into all of their models they refer to as Bass Focus. The new technology is claimed to improve bass dynamics dramatically.

I've attached a tech bulletin describing Bass Focus.

Reminds me of Dunlavy speakers. Seems like a good idea. But where is the trade off? Increasing bass panel size you have to decrease something else or am I missing something?

I have them and the bass is the best I have heard from this speaker.
The midrange actually has less distortion then the regular PX panels.
Overall a better design, Roger has done it again, amazing.

To GL. Which model do you have and could you give a few more details of the sound of the new Bass Focused panels compared to what you have heard in the past. It looks like a D'apolito setup for electrostatics.

know about the new technology, but I went in a different direction. Having heard about the Enigmacoustics Sopraninos, which are large, turned around electret condenser microphones, used as transducers, I bought two pairs, wired them up in series, and attached them to the terminals of my PX panels. In series the sops have an impedance of 8 ohms and act more like a line source when separated. The result is that all spectra are clearer and more defined, because the first few milleseconds of sound can be finally reproduced. The settings I used on the sops was -3 db and crossover at 10KHz. You would not think that a super tweeter would have such an effect on all frequencies. Things like plucked strings and percussion take on new life. Of course, my mod costs almost $10,000, with the addition of Batpros on the surround channels.

My two cents, the bass cells are now at the top and bottom with the highs and mids in the center of the panel. The bass is no longer coming from the bottom only so the distribution is more even now.
The highs and mids are coming from the center of the panel instead of the top of the panel and the sound is better overall with less distortion on piano notes and heavy modulated voices. Hope this helps.
