Compact 18” sensor controlled subwoofer, Extended frequency range down to 25 Hz (-6 dB)

  • The CODA Audio award winning sensor controlled technology is extended with the compact SCV-F subwoofer. Combining a closed feedback-loop control with large, low noise laminar flow ports the SCV-F subwoofer offers increased output and well controlled response.


Main Features

  • Compact 18” sensor controlled subwoofer
  • Extended frequency range: 25 Hz – 150 Hz (-6 dB)
  • Power handling: 1500 W (AES)
  • Sensor Control Technology
  • The feedback loop control ensures extreme fast transient response and ultra low distortion
  • Rigging is compatible to AiRAY and VIRAY
  • Subwoofer arrays can be curved for perfect time alignment with AiRAY and ViRAY
  • Flyable or ground stackable in cardio or omni configurations
  • System integration with LINUS Loudspeaker Management Amplifiers

Overview

When it comes to subwoofers, CODA Audio has a sizeable offering of extremely smart boxes for a wide range of applications. What’s particularly smart about these subs is the fact they are sensor controlled, which means they’re way ahead of the field from the offset: these speakers are capable of delivering measurable and very audible advantages in impulse response, group delay, waterfall, and the distortion domain.

In short, between 35 and 100 Hz, the audio is time aligned; and the group delay increases slightly in the 25-35 Hz range. As a result, you get an extremely precise and musical low end, with sonic qualities that go way beyond any conventional port loaded system.

At the core of SCV-F (which works in Cardio or omnidirectional mode) is its very efficient, high output 18″ long neodymium excursion woofer, which provides a completely flat response down to 25 Hz (-6 dB), and hardly any distortion at all.

Then, as with all CODA products, comes the unique driver capabilities: SCV-F has a built in ‘velocity sensor’ within its 18″ driver, which measures the exact movement of the voice coil by sending information over XLR cable to the Comparator about velocity, excursion, and speed of the voice coil itself.  In turn, the Comparator then compares the original input signal to the movement measurement from the ‘velocity sensor’, and adjusts the amplifier driving voltage and/or current, so the diaphragm can move the way it should move. The Comparator brings Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) down by a massive 80-90%.

SCV-F was primarily designed to be the perfect LF extension to CODA’s ViRAY line arrays, though it is also suited for a variety of applications in touring and installations, particularly where small footprint, pristine sonic coverage, and controllable bass are paramount.

SCV-F has been designed to work exclusively with CODA Audio LINUS Loudspeaker Management Amplifiers as an integrated solution for DSP, amplification, network remote control, optimal performance, protection, as well as extensive possibilities for system tuning and monitoring.
