The article discusses the latest in subwoofers. Genelec Inc's latest offering is the 7000 Series of active sub- woofers, which not only provide solid, below 20Hz LF reproduction, but al- so offer 6.1 bass-management capability and flexible acoustical tweaks to make the system work in nearly any listening space. Designed to remove the acoustical nonlinearities from port turbulence, the "Laminar Spiral Enclosure technology" used in the 7070A creates a bass reflex cabinet made of a thick piece of sheet metal rolled into a spiral shape and damped between 2-inch-thick MDF slab side panels. This creates a very long reflex tube in the smallest possible enclosure by combining a font-firing woofer with a large side-exit port.
