Bassboss DV12: 60 Pounds of Intense Energy
The DV12 from BASSBOSS is the latest in the company’s MicroMain speaker series. It is a two-way active full-range, direct radiating loudspeaker designed to meet the needs of the mobile DJ. Offering 3,000 watts of power, this compact unit features a flat frequency response down to 45 Hz and it comes housed in a cabinet designed to counteract standing wave reflections. In addition, it features a down-angle orientation that “allows optimal audience coverage,” according to the company.
Bassboss SV8: Packing a Punch
By Wesley Bryant-King | — When I first received the press release for the BASSBOSS SV8 active loudspeakers, I was immediately intrigued: Here’s a speaker that purports to be equally at home at a mobile-DJ gig, installed in a nightclub, or sitting on a stand in a recording studio.
Those words are easy to say, but could they be true? I was anxious to find out.
Quite frankly, I’d never heard of BASSBOSS before, but I was curious to find out more about this little Austin, Texas-based company that was hand-crafting premium loudspeakers right here in the USA. BASSBOSS is the trade name of True Lee Loudspeakers — named after company founder and engineer David Lee. Along with his team, Lee produces a pretty wide range of speakers, including some impressive subwoofers for which Lee is purportedly best-known.
When the pair of SV8s arrived on my doorstep, and after getting them unboxed, I could immediately see the build quality clearly on display. The rugged, solid cabinets, made from Baltic birch, were coated with a thick, textured polyurethane finish, with the main driver protected by a heavy-gauge metal-mesh front, and the high-frequency horn well-recessed. On the back side, the speaker’s amplifier and controls were protected by a pair of top- and bottom-mounted handles that protrude back from the cabinet. From all appearances, the 26-pound SV8 seems built for the rigors of mobile work. For permanent installation applications, there are integrated fly points to support safe installation.
