What is Bass Management?

Using active electronic filters and crossovers, Bass Management allows you to extract and reproduce the very low frequency information from the main channels, as well as the LFE channel, over one or more subwoofer(s).

The low frequency information is now originating from a single source (if one subwoofer only is used) that can be placed in an optimum position in the room. Furthermore, the LFE channel is also monitored via the subwoofer and added to the very low frequencies of the other main channels. Therefore, the main goal of a Bass Management System is to ensure that the entire audio bandwidth of all channels can be accurately monitored.
