Proficient Signature Series™ Floor-Standing Subwoofer

GS10 Performance and Aesthetics Designed to Mate With New GL6

Consumer Electronic Week 2012

Proficient Audio today augmented its subwoofer line with the GS10, their new top-of-the line, floor-standing sub. The 10” sub has a long-excursion, treated paper cone woofer coupled with a 250-watt Class D amplifier. With a frequency response of 28 Hz to 200 Hz, the GS10 can deliver high output, low distortion and excellent resolution of bass detail.

“When we release a new subwoofer, all our dealers expect exceptional performance and the kind of reliability that they have come to expect from all of our other powered subs.” said Keith Marshall, President of Proficient. “With its elegant 7 layer black gloss finish, one might be tempted to dismiss its performance, but don’t. There is power and agility hiding under all that gloss.” Marshall continued.

To achieve fast and accurate low frequency response, the 10” GS10 woofer cone is formulated with a blend of paper-pulp and a mixture of strengthening materials. The voice-coil is constructed with high temperature fiberglass and SV wire that maximize durability and improve power handling. A large-radius surround controls excursion demands and voice-coil alignment at all drive levels to minimize distortion and maximize power handling.

A phase switch provides phase adjustment to ensure optimum coherence with the main speakers. Inputs provided are Left and Right, summed internally and LFE inputs, using filter settings from sources that provide LFE output.

“The GS10 sub was developed in parallel with our new GL6 dual-woofer cabinet loudspeaker. If you pair a couple of GS10 with two of our GL6, it makes for a potent combination, delivering high performance and stunning aesthetics. The Proficient Signature System is designed to be used in a 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 home theater. These are Proficient’s highest-performance products, They’re fast and detailed and have the power to reproduce the most demanding music and movie soundtracks.” said Marshall.

“The Proficient Signature System gives our dealers an excellent choice for their more discriminating clients where top-end performance and great cosmetics are all important, and, when isn’t it anyway?” concludes Marshall.

The GS10 subwoofer has an MSRP of $900. The Proficient Signature System MSRP is $3,300 for two GS10 subs and two GL6 loudspeakers. Product ships in Q3 2012.
