Added Xcellence from Amate

The first 18-inch subwoofer to incorporate the Active+ platform has been designed by Catalonian manufacturer Amate Audio. The Xcellence XW118 incorporates an 18-inch neodymium transducer and 4-inch voice coil with direct laminar bass-reflex radiation to produce a continuous 133dB musical program output. Powered by an internal 2,500W Class-D amplifier, DSP control parameters including gain, SPL limiter, cross-over and EQ can be configured. Optional Ethernet or Wi-Fi control can be added via the Amate Audio DSPStudio application, together with the Active+ enabling Dante system connection.

Within the 555mm x 740mm x 748mm outer birch wood structure is an inner design with asymmetric walls, reinforced to minimise internal standing waves to attain high dynamics. Designed to be the perfect companion to any element from the Xcellence series, the 56.8kg XW118 is finished with a polyurea coating. Flexibility is enhanced with an M20 pole mount and hardware for suspending the subwoofer from a customised BRXW bumper and KR rigging kit. A software preset for cardioid mode includes a three-unit configuration for a 20dB reduction in low frequencies onstage.

The Active+ control platform can be monitored and configured from a 3.5-inch GUI colour touchscreen. Advanced FIR (Finite Impulse Response) is employed in providing total system phase linearity, ensuring no group delays over the entire frequency response, including high-order parametric EQs. Amate Audio’s proprietary over-voltage circuit provides added protection. In combination with the universal power supply’s power factor correction, safe operation of the XW118 is assured under unstable mains conditions up to 400V.
