Whereas conventional subwoofer designs have been known in practical use for many years and also proven to be sufficiently functional, the Sensor Control Subwoofer Technology enables to take a decisive new step towards a complete and coherent loudspeaker setup. The latter offers an extended low-frequency range with a flat frequency and phase response for a perfect music reproduction with exceptional precision and definition.
Particularly for this application a custom-made cable is required above all for the rental industry and live events. For this purpose Sommer cable has developed the SC-ELEPHANT ROBUST DMX power/DMX combi cable with an overall diameter of 19.5 mm (0.77 in.) that will be available from January 2022. Embedded in the stranding compound of the 4 x 4 mm² (0.0062 sq. in.) speaker cable is a full-featured DMX cable, pairwise insulated and shielded, with a wire cross-section of 2 x 2 x 0.22 mm² (0.00034 sq in.). This integrated 110-ohm control line allows to sensor-control subwoofer systems now without the need for laying extra cables. Of course, the control line may also be used as an ordinary microphone cable or for tie lines.
