Driver and Amplifier Technologies Pushing our expertise of using smaller drivers to get the ultimate bass sound, we applied our vast experience to an even smaller, “Neo Power”4 inch driver built with precision of a Swiss watch. This 4” baby is able to cope with the extreme signals coming in from an amplified bass guitar. By using our extensive R&D facility which includes the largest anechoic chamber in the bass guitar amplifier industry, and the KLIPPEL transducer measurement system, we were able to develop the perfect 4 inch transducer for our purpose. We analyzed the neodymium magnetic system, the cone behaviors at all frequencies in 3D representation, cone suspension and frame, until we achieved our goal. We then looked at the acoustic loading using the acoustic simulation software and calculated exactly the full power cone displacement at every frequency.
Each one of these 4” speaker is fed with its own Pulse Width Modulation PWM amplifier. PWM amplifiers are extremely efficient compared to the traditional analog solid state amplifiers, converting electrical energy to power using on the speakers instead of wasting it on hot. Since the amp is running at lower working temperature, the DOUBLE FOUR will give years of service long after other amps have faded away. By using dual amplifiers one for each speaker, the bass control is greatly improved since the damping factor ( the amplifier’s ability to put on the “brakes” to stop the speaker cone from overshoot ) is doubled. The end result? A bass tone that is well controlled, punchy, tight and never muddy or bloomy.
