VHD2.16 - VHD Subwoofer Enclosure

The VHD2.16 double 15" subwoofer is a development of KV2 Audio’s ES 2.5 design that has become a standard for compact, high output subwoofer devices. Acoustical design is based on extreme loading of asymmetrical chambers delivering exceptional output and control. The cabinet is built to the same robust standards as the VHD4.18 and delivers output in excess of 140dB when configured in a pair. It also functions as a very effective upper bass cabinet when used alongside the ultra low frequency VHD1.21 or 2.21 subwoofers as part of a five way active system.

Fly Bar for VHD Systems

 

Product code

KVV 987 252

 

Description

Must be used with VHD ARM attachments see other Accessories. The CROSSMEMBER hanging bracket is a flat and folded steel bar with returned 90 degree ends. This bracket attaches to the PICKPOINT ARM by simply sliding into two preset grooves, from left to right and secures smoothly and tightly, thus creating a T-Bar effect. Once both bars are attached and joined, it is a simple case of locking and securing the correct position and location, according to which configuration of VHD enclosures are being suspended, either in a Left/Right unit, by inserting a single D6 QUICK RELEASE PIN, which is attached via a small shrouded steel tie at the return edge of the PICKPOINT ARM.

VHD Bass Extension Flybar

 

Product code

KVV 987 308

 

Description

The VHD SUBWOOFER EXTENSION ARM is of the same design and presentation as the VHD SUBWOOFER ARM, except it is differentiated by being physically longer and employs a total of four angular wedges to allow locking into an attached- secondary double hang of VHD Subwoofers and its enclosure handles. The same method of inserting a single D6 QUICK RELEASE PIN into each handle is employed.

The arm has a poly-hex shape head at the top of the bar, with pre-fixed apertures for the insertion of the D12.6 QUICK RELEASE PINS, and is attached to the lower end of the VHD SUBWOOFER ARM by sliding into the groove and then being secured by the insertion of a single D12.6 QUICK RELEASE PIN. To add extra enclosures to the hang, this method of attachment is repeated.
