Vanatoo Speakers At Fred's Sound Of Music Audio Video Inc.



Vanatoo Powered Transparent One Speakers  

Vanatoo ClearBass™ technology enables the Transparent One to reproduce lower bass than virtually any other speakers their size, producing the warm, rich low notes as they were intended to be played by the artist. To accomplish this in such a small space, ClearBass™ employs a custom patented XBL™5 ¼" woofer, a long stroke passive radiator, 60 W per channel high efficiency amplifier, and a 24 bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor), all optimized together as one integrated system to provide flat frequency response from 49Hz to 20KHz. There is no "mid bass hump" or other gimmicks common to small speakers. The result is full range sound that is unprecedented from such a small system.

Subwoofer Hook-up With Auto Crossover

If you need to play lower than 49 Hz or you want to play louder than the physics of a speaker this small allows, use the sub-woofer output to connect to any subwoofer. The Transparent Ones amplifier will detect the presence of the subwoofer and automatically adjust the crossover for you.
