Compact Horn Subwoofer

PRELIM - T6018 re-introduced - presentation may be updated.

Decent capacity and full-range frequency extension in a small, compact unit.

But don't be fooled by the modest size - this is serious bass. With real extension down to well below 20Hz, and this sound character with realism and dynamics to both film and music, usually associated with very large installations.

The T6018 has a 180cm² port opening area, and two damping channels inside.

The 12" driver is similar to the one used in most of the larger and mid-sized Compact Horn units, such as the V110. This driver has a motor that handles high current and hard acoustic load, decent linear excursion, and a massive xmech of 60mm. The large-signal properties of the driver - suspension characteristics, motor with magnet and coil - all combine with the acoustic load from the Compact Horn cabinet, in such a way that as you increase the volume to get more of that massive, solid punch, the bass seems to get even more precise and tight.

How it works

Compact Horn subwoofer

Acoustic loading from the long, narrow horn channel increases performance significantly compared to the typical sealed or ported enclosure types.

Placement options

The T6018 is quite small and easy to place. It can be placed flat, or raised upright.
