Room Correction for Perfect Bass
Stand-alone room correction kit for the best bass possible.
Works with BalancedForce 212, BalancedForce 210, and Dynamo (600X, 800X, 1100X, 1500X, and 1600X).
Even when a MartinLogan subwoofer is ideally placed, the dynamics of each listening environment present a unique challenge for bass performance. The Perfect Bass Kit (PBK) learns vital information about your unique space, transforming the subwoofer’s performance for perfect bass, every time.
Even when ideally placed, the dynamics of a MartinLogan subwoofer in each listening environment present a unique challenge for bass performance. The Perfect Bass Kit (PBK) learns vital information about your personal space, transforming the subwoofer's performance for perfect bass every time.
The PBK system employs Anthem’s ARC Genesis software and your PC, connected via USB to a microphone and your MartinLogan subwoofer, to identify problem areas in your listening environment. ARC Genesis processes information from multiple data points and configures the optimal solution, achieving pinpoint-accurate room response.
Current room equalization systems are capable of taking a single measurement at the primary listening position. ARC Genesis software utilizes numerous measurement points, at least five—but up to ten—individual data positions, allowing ARC Genesis to learn the unique characteristics of your room.
PBK employs Anthem’s ARC Genesis software and your PC's processor to calculate correction curves for each measurement point, substantially minimizing the rounding errors of less sophisticated "calculators," like those used in standard room equalization systems. Additionally, ARC Genesis software is capable of calibrating itself to the unique performance characteristics of your microphone.
PLEASE NOTE: The microphone that comes with the MartinLogan PBK Kit will work with Anthem Genesis software (for Mac and PC).
PLEASE NOTE: Using the PBK Kit with a Dynamo 600X, 800X, 1100X, or 1600X subwoofer requires a mini-USB to micro-USB adaptor (not included) or a USB to micro-USB cable (not included).
To run Anthem Room Correction (ARC) with your speakers you will need to purchase a PBK or ARC Kit (Please note that MartinLogan Perfect Bass Kit (PBK) microphones are fully compatible with Anthem Room Correction for MartinLogan speakers). Each kit is shipped with a unique microphone.
