BW-20

 

BW stands for Boundary woofer – a Lyngdorf approach where a subwoofer is designed to be placed near the wall boundaries, for example right in the corner, achieving the best bass impulse response by avoiding delayed bass bouncing back off the walls, instead taking advantage of room acoustics. The BW-20 is the company’s largest BW model, extending the line-up of the compact in-room woofers BW-2 and BW-3.

More than a subwoofer

The BW-20 is a high-bandwidth woofer, reaching down to 20Hz but also up to 500Hz. This allows a seamless integration with any size front speakers and crossover filter type, and avoids any sound performance gap even if the front speakers are not low-reaching full-range speakers.

In-wall, on-wall, in-room

The overall construction with both woofers on one side, closet cabinet design, shallow cabinet depth and satin-matte finish allow both in-wall and in-room placement. The best performance and speaker integration will be achieved as an in-wall woofer together with in-wall speakers, while the cabinet design also allows placement in the room, used as a free-standing boundary woofer firing into the room or against the wall.

Unique features

Lyngdorf BW-20 boundary woofer
High-performance boundary woofers

BW stands for Boundary woofer – a Lyngdorf approach where a subwoofer is designed to be placed near the wall boundaries to achieve the best bass response. A boundary woofer avoids reflected bass bouncing off the back wall and side walls, instead taking advantage of room acoustics.

Two high-performance 12” woofers are equipped with large vented magnets, double spiders, and aluminum cones. The high-excursion design allows an excursion of +/- 20mm and enables the BW-20 to play the lowest frequencies at a very high volume level.

High-bandwidth design

The BW-20 is a high-bandwidth woofer design, reaching down to 20Hz but also up to 500Hz. This allows a seamless integration with any front speaker size and any crossover filter type, and avoids the typical sound performance gap if the front speakers are not low-reaching full-range speakers.
