Dynaudio Air Base-12 – No Longer Available

Active subwoofer, one 12" woofer
MFR# 995274011

Product Description

The Dynaudio AIR Base 12 is a recent addition to the AIR series, and with a total frequency response of 22 Hz - 200 Hz and 500 watts of amplification, this subwoofer delivers a clear and crisp punch to the bottom.

The subwoofer sports a new class D amp developed at the TC Electronic laboratories, which will assure "top of the line" quality and an abundance of power and reliability.  On top of that the AIR Base 12 comes with a new 12" woofer that was specifically designed for low frequency reproduction and extremely tight impulse response.

AIR Base 12 is a compact and dedicated AIR series active subwoofer. Intended for smaller and medium size rooms, AIR Base 12 offers the high performance that has become the trademark of Dynaudio Acoustics' AIR Series.  Use one AIR Base 12 with e.g. AIR 6 or 15 in smaller rooms, or link several Base 12's in bigger rooms with e.g. AIR 20 or 25 and increase the acoustic output with each additional unit.

Through the TC Link (proprietary AIR network) AIR Base 12 integrates with AIR series monitors and delivers unique features such as advanced bass management and a wealth of other tweaking possibilities.  This subwoofer will be an ideal complement for both stereo and multichannel setups like:

  • Editing suites
  • Post production facilities
  • Music recording and mixing studios
  • Larger OB vans
  • DVD authoring and mastering
  • Stereo and multichannel production

Combining technology from Dynaudio and TC, AIR Base 12 offers ultimate precision and total integration with AIR Series.  AIR Base subwoofers can be used only with AIR Series monitors.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
