The TS 1201 uses a substantially built 300mm (12.00”) forward-firing drive unit, with an oversized magnet system, in an exceptionally sturdy and rigid cabinet ensuring extraordinary control of the drive unit and minimising unwanted cabinet resonance.
The massive roll surround that terminates the cone to the rigid driver chassis allows substantial cone excursion providing the necessary air movement to ensure very extended low frequency output.
Achieving the optimum settings for music or home cinema listening is easy. Low frequency extension can be varied down to the unit’s lowest operating frequency (21Hz) via a control on the rear panel of the sub. This allows the subwoofer to be adjusted to match the relative level of the main speakers or just simply set to personal listening taste. Movies will have that floor shaking real home cinema power, and music will come alive with that bass dynamic you perhaps didn’t even realise was there.
The TS 1201 is capable of spectacular low end impact with the ability to remain agile enough to keep finer low frequency detail and massive, explosive effects under complete control. With sufficient power and authority to deliver impressive result in a larger home theatre system.
BASH® amplifier technology is utilised throughout the subwoofer range; a patented high efficiency power amplifier circuit topology that has taken the best of Class D and Class AB and created a new Class of its own. The digital power amplifier with its patented switch mode power supply delivers exceptional performance and excellent bandwidth with long-term reliability. Very high-power amplifiers are fitted (500 Watts RMS) ensuring there is ample power to cater for the dynamic recordings available on the latest audio and video formats.
DEEP BASS WITH PRECISE CONTROL
Achieving the optimum settings for music or home cinema listening is easy. Low frequency extension can be varied via a digital LCD control panel on the top of the sub. Fine-tuning the frequency and output volume allows precise matching to the relative level of the main speakers or adjusting to personal listening taste. Favourite settings are stored for future use.
An exceptionally sturdy and rigid cabinet is the basis of the TS subwoofer design, ensuring extraordinary control of the drive unit and minimising unwanted cabinet resonance. Each model utilises a substantially built, forward-firing drive unit with an oversized magnet system. The massive roll surround allows substantial cone excursion providing the necessary air movement to ensure very extended low frequency output; 21Hz (-6dB) in the case of the TS1201.
FEATURE PACKED PERFORMANCE
A variable phase control (0-180 degrees) allows additional matching with the room and the rest of the system. Other features include an auto mute function, parametric equalisation and a shelf filter with presets for audio, video and night mode. Circuitry is fitted to limit the maximum sound output in order to eliminate audible distortion. Whichever model you choose, the Tannoy TS subwoofers deliver a huge scale performance yet remain totally unobtrusive. Movies will have that floor-shaking real home cinema power, and music will come alive with that bass dynamic you perhaps didn’t even realise was there.
