New THIEL subwoofer Integrator debuts at New York HES
MAY 2004: THIEL’s new subwoofer system Integrator debuted at the 2004 Home Entertainment Show in the Sound by Singer's Gramercy B Room system featuring the THIEL flagship CS7.2 and SW1 subwoofer. The THIEL Integrator is an active electronic device designed to achieve near perfect integration between a THIEL subwoofer and virtually any pair of “main” loudspeakers.
The new Integrator can be used in augment mode to extend the bass range of the system’s main speakers or in crossover mode to transfer the bass energy from the main speakers into the subwoofer, allowing the overall system to play at higher output levels. The Integrator’s SmartSub® microprocessor technology analyzes the characteristics of virtually any main speaker system based upon parameters entered into the Integrator by the end-user through a series of simple prompts. The Integrator then automatically calculates the subwoofer response that provides the most seamless, musical total system performance. The Integrator utilizes two-channel circuitry so that stereo bass can be preserved when multiple subwoofers are employed, and it comes complete with a remote control, balanced and unbalanced low level inputs and outputs, and can be used with up to 16 subwoofer modules in very large systems.
