Unity Audio Launch BABE
Unity Audio are proud to announce the latest addition to the monitor range; The B.A.B.E ( Boulder Active Bass Extender ). This is a dedicated speaker designed to transform the Unity Audio Boulder MKII from a 3 way, into a 4 way system for high SPL and extended low frequency applications for larger tracking/mixing and mastering rooms.
Being a modular system, several mounting options are available to provide maximum flexibility. Soffit mount or free-standing, either side-by-side, horizontally with B.A.B.E underneath, or as a tower with a dedicated optional stands.
The B.A.B.E. retains the same sealed cabinet approach used throughout the Unity Audio range. This design approach provides faster, tighter and more accurate linear bass reproduction and results in less phase rotation, reduced time domain ringing, lower group delay and a shallower roll-off slope than inferior ported designs. These characteristics make The B.A.B.E. a natural choice for all critical music applications. The woofer is a single 12”/300mm driver with a huge 5”/130mm Hexatech external voice coil wound with a hexagonal-shaped aluminium coil wire (2-3 times thicker than standard woofers) for accurate music reproduction, superior durability and power handling. This driver delivers an extraordinary combination of audiophile musicality and high power handling.
A stereo Boulder/B.A.B.E system can use two, or for even higher SPL's four B.A.B.E cabinets can be employed. Each cabinet has it's own rack mountable 750 watt class D amplifier and an external Unity Audio rack mount DSP 2 input, 4 output speaker-management system is used to crossover the B.A.B.E to the Boulder with the added benefit of on precise on board gain, phase, EQ, limiters, presets.
The B.A.B.E. adds a flexible modular approach enabling a fully 4-way Boulder system configured the way you want it, with breathtaking performance.
