The first subwoofer, the RS1 model from the Ruark portfolio, is designed to complement the popular MR1 Mk2 speakers . Just the right power: 100 W of the built-in amplifier, operating in class D, will allow you to “create a more comfortable bass.” It is clear that good compatibility of the characteristics of the RS1 and MR1 Mk2 was ensured at the development stage, but the subwoofer also has a crossover filter adjustable in the range of 50–180 Hz – the sound can be adjusted if desired.
The subwoofer itself operates in the range of 25-200 Hz – the bass should really improve. The 17cm down-firing driver will provide 360-degree sound, which in turn will make it easier to find the best location for the subwoofer. RS1 receives the audio signal via a mono RCA cable. The subwoofer turns on or goes into standby mode when there is an input signal, that is, automatically. There is also built-in overload protection.
The design of the new product, accordingly, is made in the spirit of Ruark – the same gray body with top and bottom panels made of walnut. The subwoofer can be sold individually or as a set with MR1 Mk2 speakers.
