Quasi-bandpass subwoofer


Compact quasi-bandpass subwoofer

Exceptional frequency and impulse response for fast, accurate low frequencies

Compact size and low weight for ease of use and installation

High excursion 15" neodymium LF drive units

The EMS-215 is a compact, powerful subwoofer, intended to support the larger fullrange loudspeakers from the EMS Series. The EMS-215 is fitted with high excursion 15” (381mm) neodymium drive units with 4” (102mm) voice coils to keep weight to a minimum for touring applications.

  • Premium 18mm multi-laminate birch plywood enclosure
  • Black textured paint finish
  • Optional weather protection or RAL custom colours
  • Two full length and one short 35mm pole mount adapters
  • Hex punched steel grille backed with acoustically transparent black foam

The enclosure is constructed from premium grade multi-laminate Birch plywood and is finished in impact resistant paint. Four flush handles, tour-grade castors, and three 35mm pole adapters are provided. The enclosure is finished in black textured paint as standard, however weather-protection options as well as custom RAL code colours are also possible. Two NL4 connections are provided on the rear for input and enclosure link. A hex-punched steel grille backed with acoustically transparent foam protects the drive units. The EMS-215 can add low frequency power and extension to systems based around the EMS-121X, EMS-122 or larger fullrange enclosures.

The EMS-215 requires active high/low pass filters and a single amplifier channel capable of delivering 1200-1600W RMS into a 4 ohm load. For optimum results, the EM Acoustics DQ10 or DQ20 Advanced System Amplifiers, or the AQ-10 or AD-9 power amplifier in conjunction with the DSC48 system controller (for loudspeaker filter slopes and protection) should be used.
