Audison Advanced Subwoofer Amplifier

Elettromedia’s Audison is shipping what it calls one of the most advanced subwoofer amplifiers to date.

The Audison Forza AF M1.7 bit is based on Audison’s new 1000 watt subwoofer amplifier  (M1D) but it adds 7 channels of digital signal processing (DSP).

Elettromedia’s Ken Ward said the amp is designed for three types of installations; “First, ‘Add-a-Sub’  installations where the subwoofer can be EQ’d and time and phase-aligned with the cabin speakers. Secondly, full DSP-managed systems where the 1.7 bit is also the system controller for non-DSP amplifiers, such as our Forza M6D or the new SR 6.600. Finally, the 1.7 bit can be paired with a Forza multichannel bit amplifier, supporting integration of up to 24 input channels.”

The Forza AF M1.7 bit DSP amplifier is rated at 600 watts RMS into 4 ohms, and 1200 watts into 1 ohm in addition to 1000 watts at 2 ohms.  Up to 12 input channels can be corrected, summed, and routed with the unit. It lets users compare and align each channel in amplitude, phase, and time before tuning the system. Bit Drive software also allows control over mixing and routing, and managing the bit processor’s six preamp outputs.

Other features include Audison proprietary processing: Dynamic Bass EQ and Bass Magnifier processing.  The M1.7 also supports Audison’s Bluetooth streaming receiver (B-CON) and optional DRC system controllers.

  1. A colleague and I where just discussing this idea the other day. Hopefully Canada gets it as fast as the US.
