Dynaudio BM14S II Active Subwoofer

The Dynaudio BM14S II Active 12 Subwoofer, designed to take care of the most challenging requests and it will compliment larger stereo and multi-channel setups in even the most demanding studios.

The Dynaudio BM14S II Active 12" Subwoofer continues Dyanudio's tradition as the largest in the new II-series subs; delivering Dynaudio's premium, professional sound quality and performance. Dynaudio Professional II-series precision subwoofers are made in Denmark using hand-crafted drivers that have made Dynaudio the industry standard in studios the world over.

The Dynaudio BM14S II is a precision subwoofer specifically designed to complement BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII monitors, adding extended bass in mid-sized mixing and recording environments.

The Dynaudio BM14S II subwoofer is perfectly aligned for operation with the BM and M series monitors. For larger multichannel setups with e.g. five M1.5's, multiple BM14S II's will be a preferred choice.

The Dynaudio BM14S II is designed to take care of the most challenging requests and it will compliment larger stereo and multichannel setups in even the most demanding studios.

The Dynaudio BM14S II has been designed as a closed cabinet type subwoofer. This type of cabinet design gives you significant control and enhancement of the general performance as the closed cabinet creates an internal pressure. This adds considerably to the amount of accurately reproduced low frequency signals. When audio reproduction is more accurate, it will add to the sense of reality, and the BM14S II ensures exactly that.

With a substantial 300 watts of power coming from the 12-inch woofer and an impressive low frequency limit of 18 Hz, this subwoofer is the perfect match for the BM and M series monitors.

With an auto On/Off function, energy usage shuts off after minutes of no input signal, thereby saving energy when the subwoofer is idle. As soon as an input is detected, the auto sensing circuit enables the subwoofer to come back to life.

A satellite filter feature is provided by the BM14S II, enabling adjustment of low-pass corner frequencies from 50 to 150Hz of the monitor source signal. The subwoofer will thus take care of the lower and power consuming frequencies, and thereby adding to the performance and clarity of the monitors in the system. This is due to the high-pass filtering feature that the BM 14S II comes with. If the need arises to daisy-chain more subwoofers to the same system, the low level LFE output gives you exactly that choice.

This is a beast! October 15, 2011
Reviewer: Grant Beachy from Goshen, IN United States  
I've been using this in my 10x15' room with a lot of treatment in conjunction with my adams a7x's and my ns10's.  Mixes have never translated better. This sub gets low with no bumps or dips in frequency response.  The crossover works well too. I'm blown away by the low end detail that I was missing before.  I've been going back and remixing recent projects that haven't released, after discovering some massive low end information in some of the samples I was using.  It does what it says, and doesn't ever sound stressed at the volumes I mix.  I'm happy with this purchase.
