BASSBOSS announces the release of the Makara-MK3 Double 21″ Powered Subwoofer, a mystic monster that provides the impact and depth of a much larger subwoofer in a portable enclosure.
The Makara shares much of its DNA with the legendary BASSBOSS Kraken Quad-21″ Powered Subwoofer. Another “Monster of the Deep,” the Makara-MK3 is engineered to deliver a flat response to the profound depth of 23Hz. A massive amount of face-melting bass emits from this mythical creature made real. For those new to such profound musical depths, the encounter is unforgettable and addictive. For the initiated, it's a sensation they crave again and again.
Like the Kraken Subwoofer, the Makara-MK3 not only goes deep but also provides the fearsome impact delivered by the short-horn loading of the fronts of the cones. The Makara shares the footprint, depth, and impact of the Kraken and offers increased portability and versatility by being significantly smaller and more manageable.
The Makara-MK3 achieves a maximum sustained output of 143 dB SPL at 1 meter in a half-space (ground plane) environment, with a peak SPL of 146 dB. The 21″ transducers feature 4.5″ CCAW voice coils and Neodymium motors that create the ideal combination of efficiency and motor force.
Each transducer is driven by a discrete amplifier. Their combined output has the potential to deliver 5000 Watts to the two drivers. Integrated with the amplification package is a comprehensive DSP that includes the “secret sauce” of the BASSBOSS line, the extensive proprietary processing by Designer David Lee. High-pass and low-pass filters, equalization and limiting are in place to ensure smooth response, reliable operation and seamless interoperability with all BASSBOSS loudspeakers and subwoofers.
A waterproof (IP65 rated) Neutrik powerCON True 1 TOP connector provides a power input connection fed from a standard US 3-pin 120V electrical plug (NEMA 5-15). Signal input and pass-through connectors are XLR. LAN connectivity for ControlBASS software is via two internally switch-linked EtherCON RJ45 data connectors.
The Makara-MK3 is built for durability from 18 mm marine-grade Birch plywood. The cabinet measures 48″ x 28″ x 36″ and is finished in black, textured, bonded, high-pressure polyurea coating, making it suitable for any environment. 35mm pole sockets are provided on all four sides. Four steel bar handles and UHMWPE sliders make setup surprisingly easy. The Makara-MK3 sliders interlock with each other and with the Kraken, providing the ideal building blocks for “a wall of bass.”
The Makara-MK3 is the latest embodiment of BASSBOSS's commitment to facilitating unforgettable experiences through powerful yet practical products that provide loudspeakers for thrill seekers.
The BASSBOSS Makara-MK3 Double 21″ Powered Subwoofer will be available in late March. For more information, visit bassboss.com/makara or contact your local BASSBOSS dealer.
