Made for music
Many subwoofers are ported designs intended for the thumps and bangs of home theater. The Andover-One Subwoofer is a sealed-box design optimized for music. You get fast, accurate musical transients along with deep, clear, unexaggerated bass.
Even if you’ve never connected a subwoofer before, setup is a breeze. The center detent for the crossover frequency and output level controls are specifically optimized for the Andover-One system. So you just plug in. And play. When you switch on your source system, the subwoofer automatically powers up from standby.
Subwoofers work by producing vibration. The business end of a turntable works by detecting vibration. So under normal circumstances, placing your turntable system in the same stand as a subwoofer is a recipe for a miserable distortion called “acoustic feedback.” Andover’s patent-pending IsoGroove technology protects your turntable from vibration – and protects your music from feedback. Independent audio critics who rarely agree on anything have declared the technology “lived up to its billing” and “works as advertised” and called it “so amazing” and “genius.”
Class D amplifier
Most power amplifiers generate substantial heat along with the wattage. So it’s difficult to fit a powerful amplifier into a compact subwoofer. But that’s what we accomplished. Our Class D amplifier is remarkably cool and compact while delivering a gut-shaking 150 watts total RMS.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
To help ensure low noise, low distortion and long operating life, the critical low-pass filtering and level controls are accomplished by a powerful Analog Devices SigmaDSP® digital signal processor.
A beautiful match for the Andover-One and One E systems
Featuring a stylish, tempered glass top, the subwoofer is designed to sit by itself. Or you can attach our upper rack to the top with high-strength furniture cams, to create a simple, immensely satisfying, integrated system.
