In addition to research and development of new products, Precision Devices are constantly using the latest technology to investigate ways of further optimising and enhancing existing products to extract the best possible performance. Further to that end, it is with great pleasure that we present the PD.188/2 Sub Bass driver.
An Upgrade of the popular PD.188, the new MkII model is constructed on our latest high-strength, 18-inch chassis design and also offers visual refinements to the high-efficiency motor system.
Optimised during the design stage using the Klippel® KA3 analyser system and verified by further listening tests ensuresTSP parameters and acoustic performance remain faithful to that of the original PD.188. Careful consideration has also been given to the PD.188/2 recone kit so that it may be used as a like-for-like replacement in both MkII and any existing MkI models.
Designed to provide superlative performance when used in either a horn-loaded or reflex enclosure where fast accurate lows are demanded. A prefect choice for upgrade or replacement situations where the capability of the PD.188/2 to drop-in and provide outstanding bass response makes it a versatile, popular and highly effective unit. Well suited for use with Precision Devices mid-range and compression drivers to produce the ultimate PD sound experience.
