BG Radia Launches THX-Certified In-wall Subwoofer
Uses THX Balanced Bass-line to deliver vibration-free bass from speaker.
BG Radia and THX launched the BGX-4850 in-wall subwoofer here on Day One of CEDIA Expo 2008.
BG Radia says the BGX-4850 is the first in-wall subwoofer to earn THX Ultra2 Certification.
According to the companies, it’s also the first product to use THX Balanced Bass-line, which delivers vibration-free bass from a compact speaker design.
The BGX-4850 consists of four self-contained modules that each have 12 micro-precision woofers arranged in balanced pairs.
The four modules have a total radiating area equal to two 18-inch drivers and fit inside a standard 2x4-inch stud wall.
All that is visible is a grill 26.5-inches high and 7-inches wide (per module), according to BG Radia.
The BGX-4850 can be adapted for on-wall or in-room use. It’s powered by 2,000 watts of power and is capable of producing “lifelike playback” levels.
The amplification, digital signal processing (DSP) and control are all contained within the 1x2u high, 19-inch rack mountable controller/amplifier unit.
The BGX-4850 Ultra2, which comes with an LED display and remote control, will ship in October.
