Avalanche At Unity

Unity Audio previewed the forthcoming Avalanche sub-woofer at AES. The third product in its monitoring range is designed to complement Unity’s existing Rock and Boulder for those that want extra SPL and low frequency extension, but can also be used in conjunction with other monitor brands. The Avalanche has been designed by Kevin Van Green and retains the sealed cabinet approach, but it has a dual chamber with an aperiodic vent which gives all the benefits of a sealed cabinet but also increases the bass response from a smaller cabinet. It uses a downward firing 12-inch woofer designed for heavy duty sub-woofer application in a 65 litre enclosure. The Avalanche extends low frequencies down to 30Hz with the -3dB point down being 23Hz.
