Ever since SVS discontinued their ‘12-Plus’ series of subwoofers, there has existed a fairly wide price gap between their ‘2000’ series subs which ranged from $700 to $800 and their ‘4000’ series subs which ranged from $1500 to $2000. SVS is now filling that gap with the unsurprisingly named ‘3000’ series which, of course, specs between the 2000 series subs and 4000 series subs. The 3000 series prices range from $1000 to $1400 which completes SVS’s spread of options for sub shoppers from $500 to $2500.… Read the full article
Klipsch is one of the few audio brands that can cater to old-school audiophiles and to the custom-install and home theater crowds, with great success in each area. The American loudspeaker manufacturer has recently updated its iconic Klipschorn corner speaker, which has been in continuous production since the mid-1940s. The new Klipschorn AK6 ($15,000 per pair) is still a fully horn-loaded three-way design and looks nearly identical to the original Klipschorn, which was the first speaker designed by founder Paul Klipsch.… Read the full article
REL Acoustics T/7i $999 A special round of applause is due this mini-sub for music lovers. The new T/7i is even faster and tighter than its forbear, yet remains tonally supple, with well-defined timbres. It’s also remarkably potent for a single, forward-firing 8" driver augmented by a quick-reacting, downward-firing 10" passive radiator (and a smooth 200W Class AB amp). The sumptuous high-gloss lacquered enclosure with aluminum accents has inputs for high-level Neutrik Speakon (cable included), plus low-level RCA and LFE. A little classic.… Read the full article
PSB’s entry-level Alpha B1 bookshelf speaker ($300/pair) was long considered the champion of affordable sound quality, and over the years I recommended it to a number of friends who were looking for the best bang for their buck. Now hoping to become a go-to brand for reasonably priced subwoofers, the Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer has introduced two new subs claiming to offer “outstanding performance and value.” At the recent 2018 CEDIA Expo in San Diego, PSB showed off the SubSeries 250 ($699) and the SubSeries 350 ($999), both sealed designs built into compact, cube-shaped cabinets with curved edges and a glossy black finish.… Read the full article

Few people would choose to listen to music through their computer’s inbuilt speakers, but the faff of plugging in external speakers could be a thing of the past if Apple’s latest patent is anything to go by.
The recently filed patent outlines plans to incorporate subwoofers into Apple displays, most likely the iMac, which has suffered in terms of audio quality in Apple’s pursuit of thinness.
Playing it cool
Not only could the patented speakers improve sound quality, Apple has also described how they could be used to help keep the computer cool.
Apple has outlined how the airflow generated by the subwoofers could act as a secondary cooling system, with signals sent from the control circuitry to the speakers in response to temperature measurements and the speakers increasing or decreasing their airflow accordingly.
Furthermore, Apple noted that as the speakers move, airflow could be directed at specific parts of the computer that need to be cooled the most, and by directing warm air out of openings in the monitor.
One of many patents
On the list of US companies that submit the most patents, Apple comes in at 11th, meaning that many of its inventions are never actually utilized in its products.… Read the full article
