The V-SUB is an actively driven high performance cardioid subwoofer powered by a single amplifier channel. The V-SUB features integrated rigging equipment, and shares the same acoustical and visual design as the V-GSUB, which is intended for ground stacked applications only. It houses two long excursion neodymium drivers, an 18" driver in a bass-reflex design facing to the front and a 12" driver in a two chamber bandpass design radiating to the rear. The cardioid dispersion pattern resulting from this approach avoids unwanted energy behind the system that reduces the reverberant field at low frequencies and provides the greatest accuracy of low frequency reproduction.

The V subwoofer can be used to supplement V8 and V12 loudspeakers in various combinations, ground stacked or flown, either integrated on top of a V8 / V12 array or as a separate column.


The d&b workflow enables us to utilise Array Processing. Whilst designing the system in array calc ( d&b's prediction software) this miraculous technology measures the response of the system every 20cm into the audience area and uses processing to even out the sound throughout the entire audience area. The result? Totally even response, It will sound the same in every seat in the house. There's a reason d&b's motto is 'Democracy For Listeners'
