Bass Reconstruction Processors Specifications

Input Connection Type
This is the type of input that the unit accepts.
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
Output Connection Type
This is the type of output that the unit accepts.
Maximum Input Voltage
This is the maximum voltage that the processor is able to accept.
Maximum Output Voltage
This is the maximum voltage that the processor is able to output.
Adjustable Center Frequency
This function allows you to adjust the center frequency of the signal proccessing.
LED Indicators
This refers to any LED illumination present on the unit. This includes Power Indicators, Clipping Indicators, illuminated logo's, etc.
Bass/Gain Remote
If the unit comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Auxiliary Input
This refers to whether or not the unit has an auxiliary input for connecting additional accessories.
Total Number of Inputs
This is the total number of input connections that go into the unit.
Total Number of Outputs
This is the total number of output connections that the unit will produce.
Built-in Crossover
A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is normally used with subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, which is normally used with speakers.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.

Street Level Competitor Must Buy

November 16, 2009

If you are looking for added bass and better sounding bass this product is an excellent addition to your system. I added the Bass12 for spl and overall sound quality and was greatly satisfied with the out come.. The bass is not only enhanced in the songs that I play but I am also able to clearly here all of the percussion instruments unlike ever before. Lastly if you are the competition type and are lacking the space to add multiple subs this is a product for you. My two kicker CVX 15"s subs almost sound as loud. Highly recommend product!

Hmmm

January 17, 2009

It is a nice addition to an audio system. It takes time to adjust to your car or your liking but once it is done it is nice. I used it to add a little low end to my setup. I like using it when I am playing oldies. It will give any song DEEP BASS. Just make sure you don't overdo it. Cheap subs don't stand 30 secs against it. I keep it at a quarter gain on the remote. The only thing I don't like is that the subsonic is set a little high for me. I would rather it be around 25hz instead of 35hz.

Bass hits so loud I parked in front of my friends house and it was actually louder inside than it was outside! It sounded like I had parked inside the house! The only thing that I didn't like is that the lowest frequency it hits is ten hertz, but the remote limits it to around thirty five hertz. I like to hit those low thirties high twenties with my system. Other people liked it better than I did they liked the sound but I like to mix sq with spl so I'm extremely picky about my sound.

I had never bought anything from Power Acoustik before, but after this purchase I'd definitely buy again. This was easy to install and fit the bill for what I was looking for. I've had it several years now and it has worked very well.
