Neumann announces the launch of two new active subwoofers: the KH 810 ($1,999) and KH 870 ($3,199). The KH 810 and KH 870 both feature Neumann’s 7.1 High Definition Bass Manager technology, which complements high-definition video with accurate sound reproduction.

The 7.1 High Definition Bass Management system is designed to complement the Neumann KH 120 near-field two-way monitor. It can be used either as a subwoofer dedicated to reproducing the LFE channel, or as a means of providing low frequency extension with an increased maximum SPL. With the KH 810, it is now possible to assemble flexible monitoring systems for studios of different sizes, with a smooth, uniform response that ranges from below 20 Hz to above 20 kHz.

Neumann states that the integrated 7.1 High Definition Bass Manager is compatible with all formats, from mono to the latest 7.1 high definition systems such as Blu-ray. Eight electronically balanced analog XLR inputs ensure flexible interconnectivity for modern studios. Four-mode LFE channel processing promises maximum compatibility across all formats, while 4th order crossovers and flexible acoustic controls allow for seamless system integration. A built-in volume control permits centralized system adjustment of replay levels, independent of the source. The electronics can be located remotely to reduce cabling, and to allow the cabinet to be mounted flush to a wall.

A robust 10-inch driver, solid cabinet, and carefully designed ports promise tight, articulate, distortion-free low frequency reproduction down to 18 Hz, even at high playback levels. By using sum output, Plane Wave Bass Array (PWBA) techniques can acoustically improve lateral consistency in the listening area and further increase low frequency linearity. An extensive range of accessories further enhances the flexibility of the system.
