Architectural audio specialist TDG Audio has announced that the newest model in its Signature Series of in-wall subwoofers is now shipping.
Designed for stealth home theater installation between wall studs, the new IWS-10 subwoofer features a heavy-duty 10-inch driver in a one-piece, steel-framed MDF baffle with a paintable white metal grille that attaches to the frame magnetically.
The IWS-10’s mounting depth is 3.5 inches with outer frame dimensions of 17.2 x 17.2 inches and cutout dimensions of 14.4 x 14.4 inches. The speaker is rated for 4 ohms with reco
Made up of 18 elements, it is designed to optimise the colour convergence from the three SXRD panels for a pin-sharp and colour accurate picture, and it does so for a 100in display at a distance between 3m to 6m, with a throw ratio of 1.35:1 to 2.90:1. The ARC-F is interchangeable though, so, for an additional £8190 cost, you can switch it for the VPLL-Z7008 short focus zoom lens, with its throw ratio of 0.85-1.06:1, to cut the projector-to-screen distance to under 2m.
Both the Z-Phosphor laser’s output and the size of the iris, which sits behind your lens of choice, are constantly and automatically adjusted for the benefit of dynamic range. Each helps to tailor the correct amount of light according to the brightness conditions of the scene it’s trying to reproduce.
According to Sony, that gives the 870ES a contrast ratio of infinity:1 – part of the reason is the projector’s Advanced Iris which self-adjusts during playback. The idea is that it optimises the amount of light let through according to the light levels in each scene. In our tests, we get a better picture with the Advanced”
It’s worth noting that some of the buttons have multiple functions. For example, holding the Woofer button up for five seconds disables the ability to control the soundbar using your Samsung TV. You can use the left and right buttons to skip music files forwards or backwards, and if you hold the right button down for five seconds you can turn Anynet+ on or off. Doing the same with the left button turns auto power link on and off, while holding the up button for five seconds completes Id Set when connecting with an accessory item. Finally, holding down the sound control button for five seconds brings up a choice of frequency bands, while doing the same when the soundbar is off will reinitialise it. ”
“The only setup step that required a modicum of brainpower was to download Paradigm’s Subwoofer Control and ARC apps to my iPhone and configure the V12 subwoofer for both music and movie room installations. Both apps use Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) to connect to the subwoofer. Once a link has been made, Subwoofer Control offers Music, Movie, and Night EQ modes, along with volume, low pass filter (variable in 1-Hz steps from 30 to 120 Hz with third order, fourth order, and filter bypass settings), phase (variable in 1-degree steps from 0 to 180 degrees, with a polarity inversion setting), and Deep Bass Level (adjustable in 1dB steps from -10 to +10 dB).”
