INDIANAPOLIS (9/9/05) — Canton has introduced three new models in its popular AS line of active subwoofers for high-end audio and home theater. All three use newly engineered woofers, delivering the most powerful deep bass reproduction the company has ever offered at these sizes and price classes. The initial line consists of three models, the 120 Watt AS 60 SC, the 150 Watt AS 80 SC, and the 200 Watt AS 100 SC.

These subwoofers use a new series of redesigned cellulose/graphite fiber cones that can achieve much higher output levels with superior break-up resistance, improved stiffness, and greater power handling than previous designs. The new drivers feature Canton’s patented sinusoidal surrounds and redesigned spiders, allowing for substantially increased excursion capabilities and improved lateral displacement control. The end result of these changes is a 6 to 9 dB increase in subwoofer output in the deep bass range for each model and lower distortion across the subwoofer’s operating range.

In order to take full advantage of the newly developed driver and suspension assemblies, the AS subwoofers use high power/high voltage Class AB amplifiers and large toroidal power supply transformers. Each model also features Canton’s well-proven SC technology, which redefines the traditional relationship between enclosure size and operating bandwidth. This active electronic filter circuit is individually tailored for each model and integrated in the amplification module to compensate for acoustic characteristics of the enclosure and driver for optimum linearity. This effectively blocks unwanted infrasonic signals that can cause excessive driver excursion and improves the speaker’s response across the operating range.

Two of these new subwoofers, the AS 80 SC and AS 100 SC, incorporate a newly developed Room Compensation (RC) circuit, which can be used to improve subwoofer performance in many rooms. The rear panel of each model includes an RC switch that allows users to adjust the subwoofer’s transfer function at low frequencies to defeat the standing waves that can occur in many environments.

All of the AS subwoofers are housed in sturdy enclosures constructed of low resonance MDF that is 1-inch thick to minimize cabinet vibrations. All models feature variable crossover settings, level control, and switchable phase adjustment. They are available in several finishes, including black, silver, and attractive bicolor designs of beech and silver or cherry and graphite.

The AS 60 SC features an 8-inch woofer and 120-Watt amplifier and is available at a suggested retail price of $399.

The AS 80 SC employs a 9-inch woofer and a 150-Watt amplifier and is available at a suggested retail price of $499.

The AS 100 SC employs a 10-inch woofer and a 200-Watt amplifier and is available at a suggested retail price of $599.
