Product description

The BF362 is a high-performance subwoofer system, designed to deliver tight and accurate bass response with very low distortion.
It features double 18” long-excursion woofers, with vented double-spider frame and 4” voice-coil, for a stable and prolonged high output.

Each direct-radiating woofer is mounted in its own individually-vented chamber; exiting into the  X-Venting™ bass reflex port: This centrally located port takes more than 25% of the baffle surface and is designed to maximise the system’s breathing capacity, increasing overall output while minimising port-compression.

The double baffle board and the combination of complex internal panel lay-out with extensive bracing brings a rigid structure with a high enclosure stiffness from a relatively low-weight package. It is finished in Durotect™ scratch-resistant coating and is fitted with 8 handles for easy logistics (road-version).

The BF362 is driven and controlled by the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller, for maximum sound quality and output power with long-term operation reliability. The integrated factory presets in the drive processor of the ALC offer gain, phase and filtering matching with all Alcons top systems; Also selectable response characteristics are available; “sub”, “bass”, “punch”, as well as cardioid projection control presets. The additional front-positioned NL4 connector caters for easy “reverse connection” in cardioid arrays.

The BF362 is SIS™ pre-wired: Through the Signal Integrity Sensing circuit of the ALC, the cable-length and connector resistance between the BF362 and ALC is dynamically compensated (system damping factor 10.000), further reducing distortion, while increasing response accuracy.

The BF362 is available in road-version and installation (“i”) version, without handles and wheel dolly board. Through the Architect Color Option™ program, the BF362i can be finished in any RAL™ color.
