perlisten R212s subwoofer

Perlisten's dual 12" driver subwoofer uses push/pull technology to reduce distortions, and provide big output from a relatively compact cabinet.

Perlisten at the little audio company,

Weighing in at just over 48kg, the Perlisten R212s subwoofer is no lightweight. Designed to produce the thunderous LFE soundtracks of modern movies, it is also extremely adept at reproducing the fine nuances hidden in such low bass, usually ignored by most subwoofers. Its speed and agility is betrayed by its appearance, making it a surprising performer in many ways.

The dual 12", bespoke glass-fiber bass drivers are designed and made by Perlisten, and claim a +/-20mm linear excursion.

The push/pull arrangement of the two drivers reduces distortions by to 10-12dB, producing much cleaner output than single driver and even conventional dual-driver subs.

The sealed cabinet helps produce a smooth in-room response compared to ported subwoofers.

The downloadable control app allows set up and adjust of the R212s from your listening position. There's three modes to choose from (cut, boost, or THX), and set the 10-band parametric equaliser to help smooth out its response in your room. Three individual presets allow easy switching between movie/music listening.

Perlisten R212s subwoofer, THX subwoofer,

A single R212s subwoofer is certified to THX Ultra, specification, and produces a bass response that is almost identical to its bigger brothers - it just doesn't play as loudly. Two R212s subwoofers together are rated to THX Dominus specifications.

A more detailed spec sheet is available here.

The R212s provides unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs, as well as balanced XLR inputs and outputs for both left and right channels, supporting daisy chaining and left/right stereo/mono use.

Other than a power on/off switch, there are no rear controls on the R212s, all controls are via the app or the touch screen mounted on the top of the subwoofer for ease of use and installation.
