TruAudio has introduced a new in-wall subwoofer called the Trunami that is geared specifically to retrofits. The sub is small enough to mount between a 16″ stud in a standard thickness wall, and comes complete with its own MDF back box. It also features a frameless, magnetic grill cloth.
The Trunami’s 8” woofer utilizes a linear High-Excursion-Spider-Suspension (HESS) design, specifically matched to its enclosure as well as the amp power level and frequency. Its Aramid fiber spider is the optimized shape for deep bass, linearity and break-up mode control at high drive levels. The woofer also has a large, high-energy ceramic magnet that achieves a higher BL product or “horsepower” for the Trunami. The woofer magnet circuit was designed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize the woofer’s motor efficiency making for a unique subwoofer driver with high sensitivity, long excursion, producing deep bass in a small enclosure with low distortion.
TruAudio also added two 6.5” Bass Augmenting Drivers (BADs) to enhance the bass while keeping the dimensions of the Trunami cabinet small. The BADs also augment the lowest range of the Trunami’s 8” woofer. The copmany says the drivers deepen the range several steps lower than the lowest pitches that the woofer can reproduce. They extend the Trunami bass a full -3db at 37Hz when mounted mid wall near the floor. This gives the Trunami the aural perception of bass notes roughly half an octave lower than it would otherwise be able to reproduce.
The Trunami has been designed to work as a single unit, or in two or four-unit configurations.
