BASSMAXX Delivers Extreme Depth with the New ZV28 Subwoofer

20Hz Bass Performance at Concert Levels From US-Made Loudspeaker

Austin, TX (June 10, 2013) – If you haven’t experienced the extreme performance of a BASSMAXX loudspeaker system, you’ve been missing out. For the past decade, BASSMAXX has provided intense sound for the most demanding music in the most extreme environments. BASSMAXX now introduces the new ZV28 Profundo Powered Subwoofer. Debuted at the extremely demanding Ultra Music Festival in Miami, where just sixteen ZV28s brought vision-blurring 20Hz bass to crowds of up to 10,000 people.

The ZV28 is a self-powered, self-processing, self-protecting, vented, direct radiating subwoofer with a large internal volume and a very low tuned frequency. Anti standing wave baffles and pass-through dampers minimize upper resonances while very large ports maximize low frequency performance at high output. Protection systems and limiters control all manners of overload, including thermal, excursion and clipping. The ZV28 is optimized for full-power operation. It is designed to operate at full rated RMS power throughout its operating range while ensuring the woofers remain within their excursion and thermal limits.

In short, the ZV28 delivers pure, deep and powerful bass to the very limits of human hearing, loudly, continuously and safely.

“We chose BASSMAXX after blowing up every other viable option on the market,” said Gregory Selph of Treehouse, Miami’s premier techno-underground dj venue. “These days, DJ’s demands on equipment are consistently surpassing the status quo of just a few years ago. Low end demands are the greatest, and often the weakest point in a sound system – BASSMAXX is directly the opposite. BASSMAXX makes low end effortless – waterproof – drink proof – DJ proof – self powered – self cooling – self monitoring – self limiting – and just bass crushing all wrapped in a tight little package. Wheel it in – plug it in – ready to begin!”

With the ZV28, deep-bass response is available at high levels in real-world applications thanks to high sensitivity at low frequencies, robust components and prodigious power. Massive low end is consistently delivered when the prodigious power is applied. The ZV28 realizes consistently flat frequency response from 1 watt to 3000 watts. A pair delivers response that is -3dB at 21 Hz – no equalization required! The ZV28 does not have low-frequency EQ boost, which, at high levels, tends to result in excessive distortion or woofer damage rather than improved low frequency performance. The ZV28’s sensitivity is achieved and maintained though careful optimization, the use of premium components and innovative, proprietary thermal management techniques.

The ZV28’s woofer cones are waterproofed so the cabinets are safe to use outdoors where they may encounter rain, in nightclubs where drinks may be spilled on them, or in dusty environments. The ZV28 is remarkably lightweight relative to its output capacity, is solidly built and nearly indestructible. BASSMAXX cabinets are hand-made by master builders in the USA and warranted for a full six years to take extremely rugged work without damage or failure. BASSMAXX also features an industry-unique extended warranty, “Sound Defense”, which fully covers the speakers against blown woofers in the first two years.

The ZV28 Profundo Powered Subwoofer delivers what it promises: prodigious amounts of bass at high power, hour after hour, with no driver failures.

Location Sound Corp. Relaunches Website For All Pro Audio Needs

Location Sound Corp. Relaunches Website

Established pro audio dealer takes customer service to a new level

North Hollywood, CA (May 30, 2013) - Location Sound Corp., a leading pro audio retailer, continues their commitment to excellence in customer service by re-launching a newly designed, easy-to-navigate website featuring products for professional audio needs, at http://www.locationsound.com.

The mobile and tablet optimized website features

  • a clean and uncluttered look with “predictive search” technology that allows users to get to the page they want quickly and efficiently by typing only the first letters or model number of the item they’re looking for
  • protection by Norton Secured Seal, the most trusted and secure choice for website protection, and Extended Validation (EV), the green address bar in high security browsers that ensures confidential information will be protected from malicious activity
  • an inventory status that is updated 3x per day to reflect the most current stock availability
  • easy and streamlined one-page checkout
  • same-day shipping of in-stock items ordered by 2 pm (PST)
  • free shipping (UPS Ground only) with $50 purchase limit thru July 31. Must use code: FREESHIP. Other limits apply.
  • “Used Gear Wish List” to enable customers to send information on the used gear item they are shopping for. If their desired gear comes into the store, they are immediately contacted about its availability even before it gets posted online.
  • one-click re-order ability for items a customer has ordered before

The redesigned website is another step to improve the customer’s experience. The North Hollywood-based store has been the go-to, one-stop shop for all things pro audio. President & CEO, David Panfili, has lead Location Sound through the growth wave during the rise of reality TV (early to mid 2000), which drove the sales of wireless microphone systems and portable field recorders. The company weathered runaway productions, various strikes, and a difficult recession. The ongoing success is partly based on the company’s sound financial stability that allows it to carry an amazingly deep inventory with hundreds of well-known brands in the pro audio industry such as Lectrosonics, Sound Devices, Shure, Sennheiser, Schoeps, Sanken, PSC, Rycote, and more.

“The professional audio industry is in a constant state of change to meet the demand for better ways to capture sound. When recording gear technology changes, so must our inventory; therefore, you’ll always have access to the latest and widest selection of audio gear at LSC,” says Panfili.

By providing outstanding customer service, Location Sound Corp. has earned the trust of film sound mixers and production companies, law enforcement and private security firms, houses of worship, government entities, radio stations, event organizers, broadcast companies, and for anyone who needs professional recording equipment to capture audio. Location Sound Corp.’s 24/7/365 Emergency Phone Support has the fastest response time in the industry. The staff in sales, rental and service, is highly experienced, and the fact that Location Sound Corp. is employee-owned ensures the full and ongoing commitment of each employee.

Angelica Dewlow, Location Sound’s Marketing Director, says:

“As employee-owners, we each have a personal stake in ensuring the success of our company. The average years of service by our sales, rental, and service employee is more than 14 years, quite a few of them having actual field experience. Not only do they know what gear you need (or don’t need), they also know how to troubleshoot. Experience also allows them to advise you on more efficient ways to capture sound.”

Location Sound Corp. is a gem in the industry, a company that truly values its customers and continuously strives to improve their experience – proven again at the new www.locationsound.com.
