IS-1000 REAR

The Booster is a feature designed to reproduce the lower range of frequencies with power and control. It works as a custom equalisation, increasing the gain around 50Hz to provide a richer and more full-bodied sound. The 50Hz frequency has been chosen since lower frequencies are more difficult to obtain with small speakers.

The Booster provides a richer and more full-bodied sound, for better realism and dynamic. It’s particularly useful in case of speakers that require more energy in the bass frequencies, for night-time listening at lower volumes, or even to achieve a more realistic headroom. The Booster is completely by-passed when set to OFF, applied to 50% when set to 1, applied to 100% when set to 2.
