WWW.OUTLAWAUDIO.COM (04/01/04) – Outlaw Audio, the leading
Internet-only home theater and audio manufacturer, has introduced
its first subwoofer, the LFM-1. The LFM-1 was developed under
the guidance of Dr. Poh Ser Hsu, one of the world’s most
respected subwoofer designers. The Outlaw Audio LFM-1 provides
authoritative and linear bass reproduction for both music and
movies. The design is both cosmetically and functionally suited
for any home theater or listening room, and it is sold exclusively
at www.outlawaudio.com for the impressively low price of just
Unlike many home theater subwoofers which compromise fidelity
in order to generate unrealistically optimistic specifications
by accentuating a single overemphasized frequency band, the LFM-1
is designed for extremely linear response at very high sound pressure
levels (SPL) throughout the deep bass range. Its 325 Watt BASH®
amplifier is capable of 1300 Watts for transients, and helps deliver
an SPL rating of 115 dB (25 Hz – 180 Hz, +/- 2 dB). The
driver configuration consists of a 12-inch long-throw woofer mounted
in a down-firing, dual-port enclosure. This ensures maximum flexibility
in placement and eliminates the audible port noise that plagues
subwoofers which use side-, front-, or even rear- mounted ports.
"Our goal was to deliver a subwoofer for less than $600
that performed as well with music as it did with movies"
said Outlaw Sales Manager Scott Jackson. "This required reasonably
deep frequency response and powerful output, while maintaining
precision driver control. Thanks to Dr. Hsu, we resisted the temptation
to design a subwoofer with an output response to 16 or 18 Hz,
in favor of a 25 Hz design that did not compromise SPL or raise
distortion. To the Outlaws, real world performance was more important
than 'bragging rights' to a specification that would not deliver
a real benefit."
The rear-mounted amplifier section includes both line-level
and speaker-level inputs, and speaker-level outputs for use with
any receiver or processor. Crossover level is continuously variable
from 40 to 180 Hz, or can be bypassed entirely for ideal integration
with a full-range speaker system or when used with electronics
that include first class bass management.
The LFM-1 was optimized for seamless acoustic and visual integration
in nearly any home theater listening room. It features an attractive
black satin finish, slim 15-inch face, and an elegant inset smoked
Plexiglas top panel that enable it to blend with any décor.
The Outlaw Audio LFM-1 subwoofer is currently available exclusively
from the company's online store at www.outlawaudio.com for $579.
For those desiring the increasingly popular dual-subwoofer configurations,
a pair of LFM-1's can be purchased at a package price of just
