The AMBER HR subwoofer has everything on board to allow the units to be used as a Sub-Woofer for multi channel applications, plus functions and controls dedicated to use with our near fields to build a modular 3 way Monitoring system.

Balanced XLR - Input and Output connectors for 3 channels (L/C/R) are implemented, these can be used simultaneously as inputs and filtered outputs. The Filter section can be set to operate at 80Hz or 150Hz and be turned off for Surround applications. If the Sub is to be placed in a different listening distance, the relative phase can be controlled separately by dipswitches in a wide range from 0 to 360 degrees to get optimal time alignment. The value per Step is 30 degree (equal -35cm at 80Hz). Also the Input level is adjustable by dip switched from +6dB down to - 25dB.

A useful feature of the EMES Sub-Bass unit is, especially if they are used as frequency extension units for EMES's Near field monitors (MODUMO), is to bypass the filter section. The signal path than can then be monitored frequency extended (Off), or non extended (On).
