BASSMAXX Launches New SSP215 Profundo Subwoofer

New SSP215 Profundo Subwoofer Delivers Output Comparable to Many Double 18” Subs from a Compact Double-15” Cabinet

Austin, TX (August 13, 2013) – BASSMAXX announces their new SSP215 Profundo Subwoofer, adual 15” loudspeaker powered by a 4000W amplifier with comprehensive onboard DSP. Thanks to its low height of only 17.5”, this extremely powerful sub can be placed under low stages and ceilings, and in tight corners where larger boxes won’t fit. Its largest dimension is 48” wide, which, when turned on end, makes the box an excellent stack platform for getting top boxes above the heads of the audience. The depth is a mere 22.5”, allowing it to be placed in front of stages with minimal loss of audience area and making the SSP215 a perfect truck-pack size for both 90” and 96” trucks. It’s also an outrageous drum monitor sub that minimizes space but maximizes impact.

At about half the size of the average double 18” subwoofer, the SSP215 is ideal for the mobile professional who needs substantial bass output but has limited transport space. For installations in lounges or restaurants where sound quality is a priority and space is limited, the SSP215 will comfortably take the place of double 18” boxes without loss of output or diminished frequency range while taking significantly less floor space.

The SSP215 easily competes with most double 18? subwoofers on the market, providing equal or better output with significantly less size and weight. The SSP215 is tuned low, providing linear response down to 35Hz (±3 dB) for use as a real subwoofer, with long-excursion, low distortion 15” woofers, and, thanks to the lower mass of the 15” cones, it delivers a tight, punchy sound as well as the deep, rolling bass.

The included amplifier provides 2400W to the on-board woofers. In addition, the amplifier can power a second matching cabinet, providing a total of 4000W. The SSP215 is a 4800W program rated double 15. The woofers have 4” voice coils and a power handling rating of 1200W rms and 2400W program each. The DSP features 96­­­Khz, 24 bit processing, and provides high-pass and low-pass filtering, limiting and time alignment functions. Controls include an input attenuator and mute button. Touring options include a 4-wheel transport cart with locking casters and covers for one, two or three cabinets on a cart. Installation versions are available with 16 x 3/8” threaded flypoints, and the included amplification and processing package can be ordered in a 2-space rack chassis.

All BASSMAXX products come with the BASSMAXX “Sound Defense” warranty that covers failed drivers, including burned voice coils, for two years. If a voice coil, or any other part, fails within the warranty period, replacement parts will be provided without charge.

Highlights:
- Half the size of the SSP218 boxes
- High SPL output beats most double 18” subs
- Deep bass output comparable to double 18” subs
- Convenient shape for lifting and loading
- Truck pack dimensions for touring
- Very low profile for under stages or low ceilings

Pricing & Availability
The SSP215 Profundo Subwoofer is $5148.00 MSRP.
When sold as a powered-passive combination of two subs as the PowerBASS Pair they are $3905.00 each MSRP. Further information available at www.bassmaxx.com or by calling toll-free (855) 822-7770.

BASSMAXX Launches DiaMon DJ112: Huge Sound, Tiny Box

Self-powered monitor with amazing size to output ratio and unique design

Austin, TX (July 26, 2013)BASSMAXX proudly announces the availability of their new, very compact and very loud DiaMon DJ112. The DiaMon DJ112 gives venues more options for speaker placement without compromising on sound. It also provides mobile DJs big system volume while keeping setup time and effort to a bare minimum.

The DiaMon DJ112 is fully self-contained and needs nothing more than power and signal to be ready to play. Despite its small size, it has the output to keep up with several subwoofers. For portable applications, it’s intended to be mounted on a pole-stand above one or more of the BASSMAXX Profundo Series subwoofers. Used with a subwoofer system, the DiaMon is a powerful main speaker, capable of remarkable clarity at very high sound levels.

An example of their extraordinary size to output ratio came when world-famous DJ Andy C. was presented with them as his monitors. On seeing their size, his comment “That’s not going to do, mate!” was quickly followed by amazement at their volume. “What have you put in those things? I don’t think we need the mains!”

The DiaMon DJ112 is a high-output, self-powered, bi-amped, co-axial monitor that features a neodymium magnet 700W 12” woofer; a 3″ voice coil, a 1.4” exit compression driver; and a 1500W amplifier with an integrated digital signal processor. The compression driver plays through the center of the woofer, making it a true point-source cabinet. Both the woofer and tweeter coils share the same magnetic structure to keep size and weight to a minimum, and the cabinet is barely bigger than the 12″ woofer. The 1500-watt class D Powersoft amplifier features built-in digital signal processing that provides crossover functions as well as a full complement of protections, limiters and equalizers that ensure accurate, consistent, and reliable operation.

An impressive example of how the DiaMon integrates elegantly into a venue’s décor while simultaneously creating an intense dance sound system can be found at AMPED in Austin, TX. AMPED, an upscale, two-story dance and live music club on Austin’s famed Sixth Street features a full BASSMAXX system install with four DiaMon DJ112s for the dance floor mains, paired with two BASSMAXX SSP218 Profundo Subwoofers. With a limited amount of space upstairs and a roof that opens to the sky, this set-up enables the club to minimize obstruction of the view while maximizing sound quality and quantity.

Not only are the size and the sound quality compelling, but the DiaMon DJ112’s unique design makes the monitor a talking point for both DJs and their audience. The angle-cut corner allows it to be placed on a table and used as a DJ monitor without pole-mounting. An adjustable wall-mount bracket is also available. Gregory Selph, Operating Partner at TREEHOUSE Miami was the first to put the DiaMon DJ112 to the test as a DJ monitor. “It’s an ultra forward design that you just don’t see in any other clubs…” he reports. “The DJs, especially the European DJs – they love it – I love it. Looks aside, if they didn’t take the beatings our system took each night then it wouldn’t matter how great they look. We have put our new DiaMon DJ112 monitors through a pretty tortuous three months test drive, and again – no disappointments.” DJ Luke Hunter experienced the performance of the DiaMonDJ12 first hand while performing at Treehouse Miami, and raved “I’m completely blown away!”

Features:
• Stunning Output-to-Size and Weight Ratio
• Elegant and Unique Design and Grill
• Bi-Amped Self-Powered with Built-In DSP
• 1500W Digital Class D Amplifier
• Point Source Co-Axial Loudspeaker Offers:
– Superior Coherence
– Excellent Off-Axis Response
– Reduction of Feedback
• Pole-Mount, Wall-Mount and Tabletop placement options

The DiaMon DJ112 is $2,953 MSRP. Further information at www.bassmaxx.com or by calling toll-free (855) 822-7770.

Location Sound Giveaway In Full Swing: First Winner Received A Lectrosonics UCR411A Digital Hybrid Wireless System

North Hollywood, CA (July 25, 2013) – Location Sound’s Most Awesome 50 Days of Audio Gear Giveaways Ever (at http://www.locationsound.com/most-awesome-audio-gear-giveaway) is now in full swing, and the first winner, Ramsey Mellette, a location audio mixer in Los Angeles, CA, walked away last July 15 with a Lectrosonics 411A Digital Hybrid Wireless System and a big grin on his face.

Mellette was ecstatic when he learned that his entry, one of over thousands of initial entries from film and sound professionals all over the nation, was selected for the first prize to be given away. He doesn’t normally enter contests, but the prospect of possibly winning a Lectrosonics UCR411A Receiver and UM400A Transmitter was so compelling that he decided to give it a try.

Mr. Mellette, who holds a Masters’ Degree from USC and studied sound under Emmy-award winner David Bondelevitch and legendary Production Mixer Jim Webb, has just finalized 6 months mixing on Spike TV’s “Auction Hunters,” Season 4. His next project is the show “Tabloid” for Discovery ID. Tabloid is a show based on tabloid stories and interviews of people who were part of crazy events. The stories are then re-enacted, and Mellette will be in charge of all the sound of the re-enactment portion. He says: “I will use the 411A every day. The 411A is the top of the line. Every mixer in LA would agree, it’s the industry standard. It’s just the best one out there.” He already owns three previous model Lectrosonics 201 Systems. “They are outstanding, but they don’t have the filtering and other capabilities that the 411A has. I’ll continue to use them, but the 411A is my Number 1,” he explains with a smile.

Location Sound is Mr. Mellette’s go-to store. “When I first started out in my career, I mostly rented gear or worked on shows that had their own gear, but in 2007, I decided to take the plunge and I bought my first Sound Devices 442 at Location Sound along with a couple of Sennheiser G2s and other things to get started.” That’s when he really started to get into the gear-game. Mellette has been building his equipment inventory as he went along, and Location Sound is where he shops. “Location Sound has a lot to offer. Most of all, the sales and rental staff are great, and everyone there is very cool. I feel a real camaraderie as soon as I walk in the door. As I need certain things for my job, I go to Location Sound often once or twice a week, and it feels as if I’m meeting a bunch of friends.” He also finds that the inventory depth at Location Sound surpasses that of other stores, “They have everything. I have never been in a situation where they couldn’t help me. They offer really good deals too, and they’ve always taken care of me. Their rental equipment is very reliable. I have never rented anything that had a problem. All their gear is really solid. I can’t say enough good things about them.”

Location Sound’s giveaway will continue at http://www.locationsound.com/most-awesome-audio-gear-giveaway until September 23, 2013, with new prizes and new winners every day. For the following weeks, the website visitors can enter to win many high-priced and high-quality items such as Sound Devices 664, PSC PowerStar Life, Shure VP 82, Sennheiser MKE600, Sanken CS-3E, Denecke TS-3EL, Ikan VX7i-s monitor and many others. A complete prize list is accessible at http://www.locationsound.com/most-awesome-audio-gear-giveaway-prize-list

Customers can enter up to three times a day. Bonus entries are made possible if a customer, AFTER completing the entry form, uses the Twitter “share” button to tweet the giveaway (must have Twitter account to do this). With this option, one person can potentially have up to 6 entries each day. Once a customer wins, however, they will no longer be eligible for the other prizes.

The giveaway is open to all legal residents of the United States, 18 years of age or older, excluding residents of Florida, New York, Puerto Rico and all other U.S. territories. For the complete Official Rules, go to http://www.locationsound.com/most-awesome-audio-gear-giveaway-official-rules.

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.
