power subs grouping

(PHOENIX, AZ) - There are a few levels of home theatre "enthusiast." Some just want a little more from a home theater than their television alone can deliver, but don't want to mortgage their homes in the pursuit of the purest sound around. For others, home theater is a part of their personal identity. It's their lifestyle and religion. These folks are looking for a fully interactive, visceral home theatre experience and will compromise nothing to experience it. With the introduction of its newest home theatre subwoofer collection, the Time Bass (TB) series, DCM Loudspeakers ensures that all of its bottom end bruisers not only bring enough bass to satisfy every customer, but, at $199.95-$699.95, are also befitting every bottom line.

All of the DCM TB series subwoofers start with a handsome black ash finished cabinet. The drivers, which are color-matched to the cabinet, incorporate a stiff, composite paper cone, a construction which resists deformation from high pressure inside the internally braced enclosure and from forces transmitted by the voice coil.

TB1 (MSRP: $199.95):
This super flyweight doesn't float or sting, but at 100 Watts Peak Music power handling, the 10” brawler can take any punch Hollywood can dish out. Add four DCM16S bookshelf speakers and a DCM16C center channel and you've got yourself one heck of a budget 5.1 system

The TB1 has three big brothers to appease the most discriminating audiophiles: the TB1010 (10” driver; MSRP: $349.95), TB1212 (12" driver; MSRP: $449.95), and the mammoth DCM TB1515 (15" driver; MSRP: $699.95).

The driver in each of the three is coupled to a like-sized passive radiator for extended low frequency response. These bad boxes handle between 100 and 250 watts of power, which means whether you're watching the chariots hit the wall in Gladiator, or an opposing quarterback crushed by your 250lb. star linebacker, you'd better buckle up - It's going to be a bumpy ride.

Key features include active compression circuitry protection. Have you ever been over at a buddy's house watching STAR WARS during the pod race scene when an explosion hits and it sounds like 100 cats simultaneously coughing up fur balls? That's a prime example of an under-powered over-driven system without proper protection circuity. Active compression evaluates the input signal and protects against harmful spikes to keep the amplifier from clipping. So now, when you steer Jeff Gordon into the wall in NASCAR Thunder 2002 on PlayStation, the active compression mechanism throws up the caution flag and says "slow down boys."
