Pro Audio Technology Announces Reference 24-inch Subwoofer

Using a massive professional-grade driver - the largest available in the residential market - the new LFC-24sm sets the standard for reference quality subwoofer performance.

Huntington Beach, CA - August 27, 2013 - Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leading supplier of loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifier systems, today announces the LFC-24sm, an imposing subwoofer designed to meet the bass requirements of the world's most elite home cinemas.


Measuring a daunting 60.5 x 26 x 21 inches and tipping the scales at 266 pounds, the LFC-24sm isn't for the faint of heart, a fact reinforced by its incredible 129.5dB maximum output capabilities.

"At first glance, this may seem like purely a statement product," said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder. "But in fact, the LFC-24sm design is in direct response to market pressure. PRO dealers continuously ask that we push the boundaries of performance as they create evermore lavish home cinemas for affluent clients who demand the very best. The LFC-24sm is capable of energizing the largest of these private cinemas, which often house dozens of seats, with an extraordinary level of visceral power. In these systems, the LFC-24sm really does provide an unequaled listening experience."

At the heart of the LFC-24sm is an 88-pound, 24-inch driver which boasts a chart-topping sensitivity of 99dBSPL (driven by one watt and measured at one meter). The power handling of the LFC-24sm is rated in accordance with the stringent standards set by the Audio Engineering Society of North America (AES). To achieve its impressive AES rating, the 24-inch driver sustained 1000 watts of constant pink noise for two hours straight without failure. Given real-world music or movie listening material, the LFC-24sm is rated at 2000 watts of continuous power handling, and can endure momentary bursts of many times that amount.

The LFC-24sm is designed to be driven by PRO's Programmable Modular Amplifier, which provides 1000 watts of fully DSP optimized signal to the sub and features a suite of in-room performance calibration controls, including parametric EQ and delay.

The combined effect of the LFC-24sm's reference quality professional components, four carefully tuned front-firing ports, and the DSP capabilities of the PMA power source combine to create a bass experience like no other; visceral and tactile, refined and articulate, all while providing the astounding output levels needed for today's state-of-the-art cinema installations.
