-PROAC RESPONSE ER1 SUBWOOFER
For ProAc, the development of the ProAc Response ER1 sub-woofer has only recently become a priority. In their opinion early designs blurred detail and imagery in stereo systems. ProAc felt that it was only with the advent of the more compact active sub-woofers with their own electronics and filters that matching capability and sound quality were improved, but they still did not feel the need to produce our their unit.
Lately however, particularly with the increasing popularity of home theatre and with the success of the ProAc Home Theatre system (Studio 130/ 140 front, Studio 110 rear, and the Studio Centre channel) ProAc decided that it would be desirable to develop a high quality sub-woofer which would be a credible addition to sophisticated audio systems.
This first ProAc Response ER One (Equalised Reflex) subwoofer is an active unit with its own filters and internal amplification. Development has been a lengthy process. The initial research indicated that drive unit cone material was a main contributing factor to sub-bass colouration. So with the ProAc Response ER1 subwoofer a new carbon composite cone, developed a few years ago specifically for ProAc's Response and Future ranges, provided the perfect solution.
Characterised by a clean and uncoloured bass output, this new material was developed into a ten-inch cone specifically for the ProAc Response ER1 sub-woofer. It was immediately found to have the necessary rigidity and internal damping to produce a clean and natural sound, complementing the output of the main loudspeakers rather than detracting from it. The ProAc Response ER-1 sub-woofer drive unit is mounted in a compact enclosure of high rigidity and thickness, with damped inner walls and loaded by ProAc's unique equalised reflex port, as developed for ProAc's Response and Future models.
Naturally with the compatibility of the cone material and other design factors, this unit has proved to be especially successful with ProAc's own home theatre system, but extensive testing has also assured its effectiveness with other high quality home theatre and two-channel systems.
The ProAc Response ER One subwoofer is a true ProAc thoroughbred and immediately raises the game in sub-bass performance; for an extra octave of bass in a two channel hi-fi system or explosive weight and authority in a home theatre system the ER One is the one to beat.
