1200 The Esotar² 1200 is a 12-inch subwoofer equipped with Dynaudio’s highest level of transducer technology, built into a rigid, die-cast solid aluminum frame, featuring Dynaudio’s characteristic MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) diaphragm driven by a large, 4-inch diameter voice coil. The exceptionally large voice coil is formed of extremely lightweight aluminum wire wound on a Kapton former. Thanks to a powerful and massive magnet, this low-mass driver construction provides excellent transient response, speed and precision, effortlessly reproducing low frequencies down to 18Hz.

Incriminator Audio Warden
The Incriminator Audio Warden is the first true column based neo subwoofer that incorporates a common steel top plate. Having one common top plate allows the Warden to generate a uniform amount of magnetic flux throughout the entire gap. This results in a stronger motor and higher SPL levels than other subwoofers. The heavy gauge voice coil in the Warden allows it to handle 2500 Watts RMS, although during SPL “burps” they have been known to handle upwards of 20,000 Watts! Each Warden is hand built at Incriminator Audio, and is custom made to order for the customer. Visit www.incriminatoraudio.com to get one!
