Unity Audio B.A.B.E – Boulder Active Bass Extender
The Unity Audio B.A.B.E Boulder Active Bass Extender retains the same sealed cabinet approach used throughout the Unity Audio range. This design approach provides faster, tighter and more accurate linear bass reproduction and results in less phase rotation, reduced time domain ringing, lower group delay and a shallower roll-off slope than inferior ported designs.
These characteristics make The B.A.B.E. a natural choice for all critical music applications. The woofer is a single 12”/300mm driver with a huge 5”/130mm Hexatech external voice coil wound with a hexagonal-shaped aluminium coil wire (2-3 times thicker than standard woofers) for accurate music reproduction, superior durability and power handling. This driver delivers an extraordinary combination of audiophile musicality and high power handling.
Using the Unity Audio B.A.B.E with the Unity Boulders
A stereo Boulder/B.A.B.E system comprises of two B.A.B.E cabinets and two Boulders. For even higher SPL requirements four B.A.B.E cabinets can be employed bringing total system power to 3400 watts. Each cabinet has it’s own rack mountable 750 watt class D amplifier. An external Unity Audio rack mount DSP speaker management system is used to seamlessly integrate the B.A.B.E to the Boulder with the added benefit of precision on-board gain, phase, Parametric EQ, limiters and user presets.
