EASTON, MA (8/10/06) -- Outlaw Audio, the leading Internet-only home theater
and audio manufacturer, has introduced the LFM-1 Plus subwoofer,
a more flexible version of its acclaimed LFM-1 model that gives
consumers selectable tuning options that favor either maximum
SPL output, or lower frequency bass extension depending on source
material and preference.
"The LFM-1 Plus gives consumers the best of both worlds,"
comments Outlaw Sales Manager Scott Jackson. "Do you want
the heart-palpitation output levels of the LFM-1? No problem.
Don't need to shake the house, but you want to extend bass response
even lower? Just add the custom port plug, switch the EQ selector,
and you've got precise, linear response all the way down to 18
Hz - low enough to hit even the lowest pipe organ passages or
earthquake film scene. It's like having two subwoofers in one."
The LFM-1 Plus builds upon the downfiring enclosure design and
12-inch long-throw woofer of its older sibling through the inclusion
of a custom designed port plug and sophisticated selectable EQ
circuit that is used to select between the tuning modes. Additionally,
the new model incorporates a 350 watt BASH power amplifier, an
increase of 25 watts over the LFM-1's 325 watt version, in order
to handle the increased power demands at low frequencies.
With its custom port plug removed and the Port Mode switch set
for "maximum output," the LFM-1 Plus behaves almost
identically to the LFM-1, delivering linear response down to 25
Hz and an output level of up to 115 dB in most rooms. When the
port plug is installed, and the EQ selector switch set to "maximum
extension," the subwoofer is retuned for linear response
to 18 Hz and has a slightly reduced maximum output of 112 dB in
The Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus subwoofer is currently available
exclusively from the company's online store at www.outlawaudio.com
for $679. The original Outlaw LFM-1 subwoofer will remain available
at its suggested retail price of $579.
