So this is a Sub? or is it more like those..I forget the term, the word vibrator keeps coming into my head :) but not of that nature, like the type of device that sends vibrations through the floor or sofa etc?

Or how many women want to sit on it once they work out what it can do.  ;)

Would love this!!!!!! One lucky bugger here has two of them! GLWTS brother Cam.

Those big manley mono's are very yummy too, 250 watter tubes. I think I priced some in a former life. Or did I dream it?

They call it an infrasonic generator, but yes it's a sub for all intents and purposes. The fundamental difference is that it uses a push-pull motor rather than relying on a conventional spider (high hysteresis suspension system) to stop the cone's movement. Some people talk about subs as being fast, which incites much debate! But this sub actually is fast if you're referring to being exceptionally well controlled, because its cone position is at all times controlled by electromagnetism. 

 

So the design is different to a regular subwoofer, but the frequency response of 10Hz - 150Hz still covers the range of an ordinary subwoofer (albeit very low at the low end). 

 

The 18" carbon fibre cone material is a sight to behold as well :)

Heard one of these in a friends system  used in conjunction with a pair of "DC10 Audio" horn speakers. The Torus completely transformed the system!! It,s a VERY impressive bit of gear. .. :thumb:

That's a very impressive frequency response 10hz to 150hz my 87kg each Diatone DS-5000 go from 20hz - 60,000 and they have a 40 & a 25 cm woofer in each speaker.

Yeah, i think when people refer to the Torus they shouldnt use the term "Subwoofer" as this conveys images of a  boom'y slow nature...the Torus is extremely fast and detailed while still packing a huge punch..

Yes I've heard the Torus Subs in a full WB setup--it is a peer amongst the plodding lot of so called Sub Woofers--90% of them are all waffle and no Balls :P

 

Indeed it is that good it would be the top of my list that would replace my so far as I've heard my Fav Sub--The original Wilson Audio Pow Whow.

This is great because when you get tired of listening to music you can have a bit of a rest and sit down.
