The 9.87 system is composed of 2 different parts. On top you find the Voxativ PI. Equipped with the driver of your choice.
In the bottom section we do have the Voxativ PI Bass. A woofer system that combines the Ripol® idea with our Acoustic Stealth Technology®. The result is a complete open system that nearly has to move zero volume. It is equipped with 2 x 96 dB Neodymium woofers each (=99dB). These woofers are extremely fast and are driven by a 250W class AB plate amp. The first dipole woofer system that really has a strong bass.
The system runs semi active. This means the upper Pi is driven by your tube amp without any filtering. Just plug in.
The woofer section has it’s own amplifier and is driven up to 120 Hz (recommended).
We suggest a line connection to the woofer section. High level entry is possible on request, but not recommended. So you need a preamp out on your amplifier. Please ask us for solutions if your amp does not have it.
The result is the most powerful full range system you have ever heard. This means all Voxativ features are kept but now linear down to 20 Hz !
Jason Victor Serinus of Stereophile wrote about the Voxativ 9.87 system:
„This truly superior system excelled in communicating the life and beating heart behind the notes. Listening to Agnes Obel via Tidal, I heard beautiful sonorities distinguished by open highs, a superb midrange, and deep bass. Nor did the voice of Cassandra Wilson on “Strange Fruit” possess anything other than a special and wondrous beauty. Switching to analog, a fabulous recording of the Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio’s Live at the Misty excelled in its percussive impact. I wouldn’t call this system totally neutral—it had a special shine to it, as would a jewel that had been buffed and polished to perfection—but it was supremely musical and drop-dead seductive.”
Saran Ebean of 6moons honors the Voxativ 9.87 system with a Blue Moon award and writes:
“On my list of speaker hotties I’d most like to keep around, Voxativ’s 9.87 system enters a tight secret group which includes the KEF Blade 2 and the Vivid Audio Giya 4. Yes, that’s illustrious company. And yes, that’s where this one belongs; different but equally accomplished and one to settle down with to call it game over.”
Finally we have to say that the woofer system can also work as a stand alone subwoofer. All features like: Level, crossover frequency and phase adjustments are implemented. This makes it usable with all Voxativ speakers and other loudspeaker systems on the market.
