  FVX15 Direct Servo subwoofer
15" ported audiophile sub with 400WRMS amplifier
Performance & Specifications

FVX15 has two port openings. With one port open, the max extension is 12hz and the bass extension toggle switch should be set to either 1P-music or 1P-HT. The latter is recommended for HT playback. The bass extension toggle switch needs to match the number of ports used.

In the following is the frequency response when bass extension is set to 1P-HT with one port open.

To achieve lower group delay in one port operation (such as for music playback), users can set the bass extension switch to 1P-Music. It has a more gradual roll-off compared to that of 1P-HT. In the following is the requency response comparison between these two modes.

For highest SPL HT playback output, users should select 2P mode with both ports opened. While the extension is only limited to 18hz, the power of the amplifier is better utilized for audible frequency band instead of less audible sub-sonic band. In the following is the requency response of 2P mode.

Integration

One important aspect of getting a correct integration is phase alignment. We have written a guide on how to achieve a phase aligned subwoofer. More >
