When it comes to subwoofers, CODA Audio has a sizeable offering of extremely smart boxes for a wide range of applications. What’s particularly smart about these subs is the fact they are sensor controlled, which means they’re way ahead of the field from the offset: these speakers are capable of delivering measurable and very audible advantages in impulse response, group delay, waterfall, and the distortion domain.
In short, between 35 and 100 Hz, the audio is time aligned; and the group delay increases slightly in the 25-35 Hz range. As a result, you get an extremely precise and musical low end, with sonic qualities that go way beyond any conventional port loaded system.
At the core of SCP-F (which works in Cardio or Omni mode) are its very efficient, high output double 18″ long neodymium excursion woofers, which provide a completely flat response down to 20 Hz (-6 dB), and hardly any distortion at all.
Then, as with all CODA products, comes the unique driver capabilities: SCP-F has a built in ‘velocity sensor’ within its 18″ driver, which measures the exact movement of the voice coil by sending information over XLR cable to the Comparator about velocity, excursion, and speed of the voice coil itself. In turn, the Comparator then compares the original input signal to the movement measurement from the ‘velocity sensor’, and adjusts the amplifier driving voltage and/or current, so the diaphragm can move the way it should move.
The Comparator brings Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) down by a massive 80-90%, which means this speaker can be modified without any equaliser or high pass filters: the Comparator not only compensates for the non-linearities of the speaker, but the frequency response as well.
SCP-F is the perfect LF extension to CODA’s G700-Series, extending the system performance down to 25 Hz; and also as an extension to the AiRAY line array. It’s perfect for a wide variety of applications: tour sound, theatres, Houses of Worship, dance clubs, and small music venues.
