The XLS1000 is a true audiophile subwoofer.
It is easily capable of out performing a majority of units costing multiples more. A beautifully clean sound with very fast and tight bass at either subtle volumes or at extra high SPL, reproducing deep, dynamic and detailed bass at frequencies down to the infra-sonic.
This top-of-the-line subwoofer will exceed the requirements for a majority of systems and rooms with both accuracy in music and explosive effects for Home Theatre that will shake your world! The incredible depth of bass goes down below 18Hz in an enclosure of only 60 litres. An eXtra-Long-Stroke 12" Peerless subwoofer is used, set in the forward firing mode. The Danish made, extra heavy duty, exotic material manufactured subwoofer is complemented by a duplicate 12" rear mounted Passive Radiator. This is a non-powered "Drone Cone" that utilises the low frequency energy within the box, similar to a port but with some distinct advantages that improve performance and specifications.
Our dual 12" design achieves superior audiophile sound with lower than normally achievable frequency response for a given sized enclosure, all without the air breathing distortion normally associated with a vented enclosure used at such low frequencies and high volume levels.
The enclosure is made from extra thick & ridged 33mm MDF board with a total of 7 internal bracing ribs(!) made from solid hardwood and interlocked into the side panels to reduce unwanted panel resonance. All bracing ribs and speaker mounting holes are tapered, again to reduce internal turbulence and distortion. To improve performance, all outer edges are also tapered.
The box is impressively finished in a premium quality, double-pack black paint, like a piano finish. Genuine wood feature panels, in a choice of Australian woods, are available, complimenting our HDS series of speakers. This is a fine piece of furniture that looks premium audio. Incredible performance requires an incredible amplifier.
As with most subwoofers, our 12" XLS kit comes with a dedicated internal amplifier (see below).
However, we have also made available a version with no cut-out hole for the power amp. This is for those who wish to externally amplify their sub with a high performance solution. Now, the 12" driver is capable of running on 300Wrms, long term, so any amplifier will be suitable power wise. However, your choice must have excellent low frequency and subsonic specifications to utilize the possible performance achievable by this sub.
Beware: many amplifiers are not good in the sub-sonic, especially powering this 4ohm XLS driver. We also highly recommend some low-frequency equalization to tune the XLS1000 into your room. An easy solution is to utilise our high performance at reasonable cost 200Wrms amplifier. This is a specially Tweaked-Up subwoofer amplifier, manufactured to Stones Sound Studio specifications for driving the XLS range of subwoofers.
This optimised amplifier gives a high 200Wrms with very low distortion and excellent stability and specifications. We believe we have achieved a reasonably priced subwoofer and amplifier system with excellent sub-sonic performance that would normally cost considerably more compared to what's available. The XLS1000 looks and sounds like a premium audiophile package that will satisfy even the most ardent listener with its phenomenal performance.
