SUB 10.17 EDGE – Powerful and accurate bass performance
Based on the famous SUB 10.17, the SUB 10.17 EDGE provides an even better listening experience. By making use of the latest ICEpower® technology, the RMS power output increases to 700W while the peak power now even reaches 1045W. This enormous amount of power is the reason for the high control and precision as well as the astonishing deep bass capabilities of the 10.17 EDGE. This brand new amplifier even allows for a better sound tuning by offering a parametric EQ. The driver of the 10.17 has to be powerful yet very rigid and at the same time extremely lightweight to achieve the highest precision and maximum power. Therefore, a driver which originates from the famous Cinema series which is able to achieve this high set of goals is used. The combination of this high speed driver and the latest ICEpower technology make the SUB 10.17 EDGE an excellent choice for your home theater or music reproduction.
Resulting from proprietary development, the driver of the 10.17 EDGE was developed from the driver of the Cinema series which is acclaimed for its precision and power. This high-speed driver is made of extremely lightweight, yet rigid materials, thereby exceeding the normal market reference drivers impulse behaviour and accuracy are concerned. The 1045W ICEpower® amplifier ensures an articulate and deep bass which one wouldn’t expect from the size of the 10.17 EDGE. Its perfect clipping characteristic gives it higher headroom for maximum dynamics.
At the terminal, the 10.17 EDGE provides the ability to configure the sound of the subwoofer using the 3 equalizers with the use of toggle switches. While the EQ “REF” provides maximum depth in the bass, “EQ1” cuts the deepest frequencies to adapt the sound in smaller rooms with high room gain. “EQ2” lifts the kick bass to achieve a punchier bass. To even further adjust the sound, the subwoofer offers a parametric EQ which can be set between 30 Hz and 120 Hz and alter the SPL from – 9 dB to + 9 dB. In addition, the 10.17 EDGE can be adjusted by using the enclosed plug for the bass reflex tubes. If both tubes are closed, the subwoofer behaves like a sealed box construction with maximum precision and an earlier sloping bass.
The massive cabinet of the 10.17 EDGE consists of 25 mm MDF, which has a large amount of internal cross-bracing to ensure maximum stability. the amount of material and reinforcing leads to the high weight of the 10.17 EDGE. Furthermore, the enormous stability of this construction suppresses possible resonances effectively and provides the driver with an ideal environment. Combined with the damping material, the subwoofer plays with a maximum of control and the highest dynamics. Due to the perfect size of the housing and the volume created, the bass is extremely accurate and precise.
The 10.17 EDGE can be perfectly integrated into any home cinema thanks to the three different available colors: matte black, gloss black and matte white. The multilayered paint is ornately polished and thus it contributes to the extremely sophisticated look of the 10.17 EDGE. Rounded edges provide an even more distinguished look.
The rear terminal offers gold plated RCA and XLR inputs. Thus the 10.17 EDGE can also be used in studio environments. Both the crossover frequency, as well as the level of the subwoofer and the phase can be adjusted exactly at the terminal. You also find the toggle switch here for the EQ selection and also the settings for the parametric EQ.
The acoustic material which is used for the front grill is opaque and at the same time 100% transparent to sound. The front grill is available in black. It protects the drivers from potential damage without compromising the sound quality.
