The dramatic importance of the subwoofer in a cinematic environment is something that absolutely should not be underestimated. Unlike listening to music, where infra-low frequencies are rare, cinematic special effects literally require the air to be shaken to physically reach the movie patrons, taking the scale of the overall spectacle right off the screen.
For the deepest immersion in the sub and infra range, MAG Cinema designed its legendary THOR, which has become a practically unattainable standard for reproducing low-frequency cinematic effects up to 18 Hz offering unparalleled sound pressure. However, despite the undoubted advantages, the dimensions of the MAG THOR are not always suitable for home theater formats. Because of the need for solutions that are more adaptable to home conditions, we conducted research that offers home theater enthusiasts the same incredible experience in a more compact space. Our quest led us to the creation of the monumental model THOR-H, about which we will tell you more later, and the family of THOR’s younger brothers, the little monsters of the home theater, the MAG Theatron Hammer line.
MAG’s Hammer-15 has uniquely shaped housing. With a capacity of 200 liters and a depth of only 12 inches, this subwoofer ensures a slick installation, even behind the screen. The Hammer-15 features a custom-designed, professional 15-inch woofer that delivers extremely high sound pressure levels with minimal distortion at the lowest frequencies.
The lightweight yet rigid multi-layer speaker cone provides the highest level of performance. A 4″ high-temperature voice coil ensures minimal dynamic compression. The Nd-Ferrite hybrid magnet system including aluminum closed rings is used to stabilize the inductance and minimize distortion.
The slim-depth body of the Hammer-15 subwoofer truly offers flexible installation options. Internal struts significantly increase the rigidity of the box and eliminate the risk of unpleasant resonances. The large-area bass-reflex port prevents turbulence noise, even at maximum SPL output levels.
The technical characteristics are particularly promising. With a power of 1000 W and a max SPL of 124 dB, the MAG Hammer can deliver what most subwoofers in its class cannot. At a frequency of 20 Hz, the SPL level is 119 dB. This means that the specified range from 18 Hz is not a formality (as is often the case with other manufacturers) but is also reproducible and with a high sound pressure level. This could be the deciding factor for those who want to hear everything exactly as it was intended when mixing the soundtracks of top blockbusters in Hollywood studios.
The MAG Theatron Hammer-15 is already available for shipping, which means that you can incorporate this subwoofer into your upcoming projects to start enjoying its top-notch performance very soon.
