Amphion Loudspeakers’s new stereo base extension system — FlexBase25 — is now shipping.
After the release of the two high-end, low-frequency extension systems —BaseOne25 and BaseTwo25 — Amphion, the Finnish loudspeaker manufacturer, introduces a single-box subwoofer system.
Despite being housed in one enclosure, FlexBase25 is a highly-flexible, stereo base extension and management system. It features adjustment options of the crossover frequency, subwoofer level and mono-stereo spread.
“FlexBase25 is finally shipping. It has been a long road to get it ready, but we are very excited about this one as we see it as being an important piece in the puzzle,” said Anssi Hyvönen, founder and managing director of Amphion Loudspeakers.
“Modern music is bass intensive and lives or dies with its lowest octave. Many start working in smaller rooms but need a full range system that allows clarity and predictability, but is still easy to install,” said Hyvönen.
FlexBase25 addresses the needs of those who write and mix. While neutrality and correctness are needed at latter stages of mixing in order to achieve the optimum level of translation, Amphion said there is nothing wrong with having things fat, fun and vibey while writing a song. With a turn of a few dials, the system can be adapted to suit best what works for the project a composer, artist or engineer is working on.
An added advantage of the new product is that it is easy-to-place and simple-to-set-up. FlexBase25 is positioned in the center-line between the monitors. It also works well in cases where the monitor will sit on the meter bridge of the console.
The new base extension is already shipping and available for orders at all Amphion retailers at a price of $4,750. The system consists of a single FlexBase25 stereo tower with two back-to-back 10-inch woofers, a 2U FlexAmp500 with proprietary filter module and a cable with a four-pole Neutrik speakON connector.
