The SSP215-MK3 features 5000W of amplification, with an auto-sensing, globally compatible power supply that can run on input voltages anywhere between 90 and 250 Volts. Full output power is available on anything over 110V. The amplifier's peak-output voltage provides intense, high SPL hits while its continuous output is unparalleled in its ability to deliver sustained lows. The amplifier is passively cooled via its external heat sink and by woofer-generated air flow through the port. When necessary, four blower fans will engage to provide additional forced-air cooling capacity in more extreme conditions.
Every BASSBOSS product comes equipped with amplification, and in every case, a generous supply of power is provided. Headroom is the term used to describe the power that's still available when the sound is at the level required, and the BASSBOSS amps provide ample headroom. While it's necessary to have limiters in the DSP to prevent driver overload, those limiters aren't there to prevent amplifier clipping. There is enough power in every product to reach its maximum SPL without the risk of clipping the amplifier.
In other words, the amplifier is never the bottleneck in delivering powerful low frequencies, dynamic impact and clear sound. This abundant power capacity not only keeps overheating at bay but also eliminates the potential for damage caused by clipping an underpowered amp. With BASSBOSS, you've got the power to keep your sound pumping.
Amplifier power is converted into the much more desirable acoustical power by two heavy-duty neodymium motor, 15-inch woofers with 4-inch (100mm) voice coils. Neodymium magnets are lighter, and their higher intensity provides higher efficiency, so the result is a lighter and louder cabinet than those with ferrite drivers. Our split-wound woofer coils create a more consistent force throughout the cone's range of movement, minimizing distortion and enhancing linearity at peak output.
The combination of extremely rugged, very high power handling, long excursion drivers, carefully optimized cabinet and port design and several effective but transparent protection systems allow this double 15” subwoofer to provide output levels and depths that compete with bigger, bulkier and far less articulate double 18” subwoofers. The protection systems effectively prevent thermal overload of the voice coils and minimize long-term thermal compression whilst having virtually no effect on the transient response and peak output of the loudspeakers.
The protection systems involve several techniques running simultaneously to effectively prevent thermal overload of the voice coils and limit excessive excursion. Reducing thermal saturation not only prevents burned voice coils, it also minimizes long-term thermal compression. Due to the sophistication of these multiple, independent yet simultaneous processes, the drivers can be protected while the actions of the limiters have virtually no noticeable effect on the transient response of the loudspeaker. Peak output can be achieved consistently, repeatedly and safely.
We understand that real-life situations can sometimes be messy. That's why we've waterproofed our cones to withstand accidental exposure to moisture – whether it's an unexpected rain shower or a spilled drink.
The SSP215-MK3 is a vented, direct radiating subwoofer, optimally tuned to provide flat frequency response to 35Hz with high sensitivity. The cabinet is extensively braced and rigid. The extremely low-profile SSP215-MK3 is particularly well-suited to deployment in tight spaces where suitably performing 8-inch cabinets won't fit. Below, above and between are words used in conjunction with the SSP215-MK3. Its performance is above that of most double 18-inch subs. Its response goes below most double-18-inch woofers. It can usually fit between the floor and the stage, between the rafters in the ceiling or between architecture and the furniture.
BASSBOSS cabinets are designed to endure for a very long time. Built from robust Birch plywood, our construction process involves precise dado joints, cleverly integrated bracing, and cutting-edge adhesives to create sturdy, rigid cabinets that stand the test of time. With a little care in handling, and especially with the use of the BASSBOSS carts and covers, BASSBOSS cabs can look new years down the line, even after many demanding environments and less-than-ideal locations.
With a top-mounted pole socket, the SSP215-MK3 provides for mid-high loudspeakers to be mounted on a straight speaker pole above the subwoofer. The enclosures also feature four large rubber feet and corresponding recesses in their tops to facilitate interlocking the boxes with each other and with the SSP218s when stacked. The feet also interlock with the transport carts, which helps to ensure that the cabinets get into and out of venues safely and unscathed. The woofers are protected by a powder-coated, perforated steel grille.
The cabinets are protected by a rugged black polyurea coating that's specially formulated to bond to wood. Amplifiers are recessed into the back of the cabinets, safeguarding them from impact damage, with the cabinet recesses also functioning as structural braces. Powder-coated, perforated steel grilles protect the woofers. Every effort is made to create a physical enclosure that will stand up to whatever you throw at it, giving you years and years of solid service.
