CB362 - High-output full-size subwoofer system

  • Double 18” long-excursion woofers
  • Lowest usable frequency 25Hz.
  • Power handling 2000W RMS, 12000W peak
  • SIS pre-wired for very high damping and further reduced distortion (with ALC)
  • Large, centrally placed vent for improved air velocity and flow capacity
  • Clever bracing for rigid cabinet construction
  • Dedicated (excursion) protection in combination with SDP modules (with ALC)

Product description

The CB362 is a direct-radiating high-output subwoofer system for demanding cinema applications, delivering tight and accurate bass and sub response with very low distortion.

It is designed to meet all requirements of current and future (Digital) Cinema sound formats.

The two direct-radiating 18” long excursion woofers with large, 4” voice-coils are mounted in an optimally vented chamber, with a large bass reflex port for excellent breathing capacity, increasing overall output while minimising port-compression. Specific attention has been paid to obtain a linear response in the operating bandwidth, while handling low frequency transients with maximum control.

The enclosure design provides for vertical or horizontal stacking and is fitted with clever reinforcements, for a rigid, resonance-free cabinet. The centrally-placed reflex vent enables maximum breathing capacity, for a sustained, fundamental sub-bass output.

For full system performance, the CB362 is to be driven and controlled by the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller; Driven by the ALC, the CB362 delivers 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.

The Signal Integrity Sensing™ pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CB362 and the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller, significantly increasing response accuracy, regardless of cable length and system impedance. Especially with the cinema-typical long speaker cable runs and the subwoofer system’s possible low impedance, the effect is remarkable, resulting in really tight and accurate reproduction for even the lowest octaves.
