Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.
Earthquake - Supernova MKVI-12BLK - Powered Subwoofer
Supernova MKVI - The new standard for power and articulation!
The Supernova MKVI Series epitomizes the state-of-the-art in subwoofer design. The MKVI series is uncompromised performance and superior technology coupled with the world's most refined low frequency response. The MKVI defines a new standard in a class of its own. The selection of subwoofers is vast, but at the top Supernova MKVI reigns in solitude.
With more patented technologies and test awards than any other subwoofer, the MKVI continues the legacy of the legendary MKV series. MKVI differs from its predecessor with the introduction of the revolutionary IQ600 class J amplifier and full DSP with phase and time control. Patented technologies such as Class J amplifier technology, SLAPS and Magma-X define MKVIs groundbreaking performance.
If you dream of uncompromising LFE performance with superb dynamics and effectiveness-, combined with quick and precise articulation, the MKVI is the obvious choice. The MKVI can effortlessly produce the lower octaves in a high-end stereo setup or add explosive LFE effects in large surround sound systems.
Full DSP for Total Control
Several manufacturers have some type of room correction built into their subwoofers. Most are based on level adjustment by volume which is a very simple equalization function. EQ does not address the listening room's phase and time related difficulties. MKVI has genuine room correction which takes into account reflections, refractions, arrival and EQ. This complete DSP solution ensures optimum acoustic integration in any room.
Unlimited Power Surplus
MKVI's brute force springs from the newly developed IQ600 class J amplifier. The patented Class J technology manifests a quantum leap in amplifier technology. The revolutionary aspect of Class J is its ability to combine a high efficiency of 99% with extraordinary bass control. Class J is an evolution on PWM technology that combines advanced multi-level feedback with an intelligent controller. It modulates the supply voltage and output switching frequency in real time based on the frequency and amplitude content of the input signal. This added level of intelligence to the amplifier offers several obvious advantages such as increased thermal headroom through the amplifier's optimum energy use, dramatically improved bass response and dynamic power capabilities. This results in a harder audible impact that adds a drive to the sound normally experienced only at live concerts. This combined with superb articulation; nuances and details are reproduced by the MKVI, but overlooked by traditional subwoofers.
The patented technologies combined with a dramatically oversized power supply make the IQ600 amplifier capable of delivering raw quantities of continuous power. The power supply is based on a rigid silicon-steel hard-wound low regulation 750VA toroidal transformer. The large and heavy transformer ensures a stable supply without voltage drop even at rigorous and continuous operation. The IQ600 amplifier provides 1200 watts continuously for unlimited time at 18 dB crest factor and 600 watts TSP (True Sine Wave Power). This is real performance power the amplifier can deliver and a power the woofer driver is engineered to withstand and utilize.
SLAPS - Patented Superiority
SLAPS technology is a key player in translating the IQ600 amplifier's high power into dominating LFE. SLAPS is a patented system that dramatically increases subwoofer efficiency and capability for ultra low frequency reproduction. SLAPS stands for Symmetrically Loaded Audio Passive System. As the name indicates, SLAPS is built symmetrically which distinguishes it from traditional passive devices. SLAPS integrates identical components in its suspension and design ensuring the unit is moving identically in both directions. The revolutionary efficiency and performance are the result of the pneumatic coupling between SLAPS and the active driver Magma-X. SLAPS overcomes the limitations known from conventional closed and ported designs that prevent radical excursion and deep response. The unique design allows the active driver compression-free movement resulting in deep, dynamic and hard-hitting bass response.
