BG Radia to offer multi -sub calibration training at CES

Based on the success of their BGX-4850 and BGX-2450 THX_certified in-wall subwoofer systems, BG Radia is inviting their authorized dealers and sales reps to learn how to analyze rooms and properly place multiple subwoofers for optimal bass response.

BG Radia introduced their BGX subwoofer systems at the beginning of 2009 and have won universal acclaim, with several rave reviews and numerous major industry awards, including CEA's Platinum Award as their best subwoofer of the year, a Manufacturer's Elite Top 10 New Product Award from CEDIA, and a RESI Award from "Residential Systems" magazine.


These systems were developed over 5 -1/2 years in conjunction with Laurie Fincham at THX, and are the first - and only - THX Ultra2 certified subs that can go in a wall. They use no back box and produce virtually no vibration, so they can be built into any place that will hold their <4" depth (wall, ceiling, floor, soffit, cabinetry, seating riser, under a sofa or chair, in a small void in a boat or plane, etc.).

BG Radia supports the common knowledge that to get even bass response over a large listening area requires multiple subwoofers, hence their packaging of either 2 or 4 (or more) sub modules in each system. Careful positioning of these multiple modules can provide extremely linear response covering many seats in a real -world room. There are, however, locations and rules of thumb that work better than others, depending on the room's size and layout.

BG Radia will conduct training and certification for their dealers and reps at CES in their suite at the Residence Inn, right across Paradise Road from the Convention Center. Using an inexpensive calibration microphone and duplex sound card with a laptop, and RTA software BG will provide at no charge, dealers will learn to analyze proper placement by moving subwoofers around the room and measuring the response at various locations. After CES, BG Radia will continue training on the road, through their reps, and are planning a series of webinars with a quiz to certify in this process. Only those dealers who go through this training successfully will be certified and allowed to order and install BGX subwoofer systems.

BG Radia will also use CES to introduce a new amplifier for the BGX subs, with more features and higher performance than the original model. They will also show the BGX -S6B, a new smaller subwoofer module at half the size of the original, for use in smaller rooms. The Radia R -550 line -source will also be demonstrated, a new in -wall speaker featuring their patented planar magnetic ribbon drivers as a true line -source, in a new narrower 7" width.

 BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
