F3-8 POWERED SUBWOOFER
Home Cinema heaven starts with low frequency effects; deep, powerful bass designed to instil excitement, create life-like ambience or immerse you in the thick of the action. The Fine Audio F3 Series subwoofers deliver blockbuster bass performance thanks to their innovative DDX Direct Digital amplification, advanced DSP and Fyne’s know-how in driver and cabinet design. Across the three-strong range, the F3 Series subwoofers boast a wealth of controls, understated black ash finish and removable grilles. With a rich, powerful and engaging sound, the F3 Series subwoofer have been designed to deliver class-leading performance and system integration at the price.
Potent, powerful and affordable, the Fine Audio F3-8 subwoofer delivers blockbuster bass performance from a compact and unobtrusive cabinet. Thanks to Fyne’s innovative 200mm (8”) long-throw driver, 450 Watt of Direct Digital (DDX) amplification and advanced DSP technology, the Fine Audio F3-8 delivers accurate low-frequency performance down to a class-leading 35Hz from a downward ported cabinet just 26 litres (0.9 cu.ft) in volume. Its innovative Bass Boost switch engages the full power of the DSP engine to deliver outstanding LFE effects for home cinema applications.
From the floor up, the F3 Series subwoofer cabinets bristle with unique design features. The large, compliant feet better couple the subwoofer to the floor, offering a more consistent room interface while being kinder to solid floor surfaces. The F3 Series’ large diameter port uses a mathematical-derived flare profile at both ends for extremely low turbulence. The cabinets are built from heavyweight and braced MDF panels to reduce colouration and finished in a subtle black ash detail to ensure they are heard and felt, yet not seen.
The F3 Series cutting edge electronics and DSP engine have enabled control features normally only found in much more expensive subwoofers. The DSP controls both LFE input and stereo input 85Hz low pass filters, automatic dynamic range management and overload protection, as well as enabling Fyne’s Bass Boost function. Engaging the Bass Boost switch delivers a +3dB lift through critical movie LFE frequencies to deliver real cinema movie performance in the home. For ease of integration with the widest range of AV systems, F3 Series subwoofers offer continuous or signal sensing auto power on modes, a 12V trigger and phase reverse switch.
Fyne’s front mounted F3 Series drivers deliver the ultimate in fast transient attack to make gun-shots and other dynamic low frequency effects come alive. The cone material is formed with a unique mix of fibres to create a light, stiff and near perfect rigid diaphragm for supremely accurate bass. Fyne’s soft rubber roll surround and deep coil and motor assembly give the cone extensive excursion and high-power handling. The result is a range of affordable subwoofers with stunning dynamics and the capability to produce low frequencies.
Direct Digital Amplification (DDX®) is a patented, all-digital, high-efficiency amplifier technology designed specifically for multimedia applications. DDX is similar to a standard Class-D digital amplifier but improves upon the design with higher power, better efficiency, lower RFI output and enhanced sonic characteristics. The result is a clean, muscular sounding amplifier with plenty of headroom for the biggest explosions and vanishingly low distortion right down to the F3 Series’ lowest operating frequencies.
