Our Active Sputnik is powerful and useful addition to any of our 2-way loudspeakers. It is designed to expand their frequency range down to 20 Hz.
We offer Active Sputnik in 2 versions which looks the same but offer different features:

Active Sputnik M1: loaded with 1 amplifier and designed for home cinema or surround systems
Active Sputnik M2: loaded with 3 amplifiers, one for the sub and 2 for satellites loudspeaker. So adding 2 of any our 2 way loudspeaker you will have awesome 2.1 active stereo system.


#1 WHY OVAL ENCLOSURE?

Shape of the enclosure has a vital role in the performance of the loudspeaker. Moving of speakers causes sound waves with very complex mixture in terms of frequency, amplitude, phase etc. If the shape is rectangular with parallel walls at certain frequencies two bad things may happen: the wall will start to vibrate due to interference and they will act as additional speakers, but without control. So the general sound will be unpredictable mix of the sound caused of the speakers and box’ walls. Second: standing waves will occur inside the cabinet which will raise enormously certain frequencies and will defeat other. So, why most of the loudspeakers have a shape like kitchen cabinets? Because it’s easy and cheap to do and many loudspeakers manufacturers do not manufacture the enclosures indeed but over source them to cabinets manufacturers.We went to the difficult way: we chose a shape which prevents both a.m. phenomenon. This shape is oval.

#2 WHY ALUMINIUM?

# 3 WHAT ABOUT THE TWO VERSIONS YOU  DELIVER?

#4 IS THE ENCLOSURE REALLY BULLETPROOF?

The Active Sputnik is designed to perform deep and tight bass at high sound pressure levels and to make it long time. We focused on the sound and dependability. We made extremely solid aircraft aluminium casting with 10 mm thick walls and of course: it is oval. Everything this leads to non distorted interference free sound. The 12” professional woofer with 3” voice coil works in perfect combination with the amplifiers designed and built by us.

IN SHORT: Extremely solid oval aluminium enclosure as well as high end woofer and electronics make Active Sputnik one of the best subwoofers on the market. Excellent choice to expand significantly the bass of your system.
