The VERA S33 is no normal subwoofer. It is literally pointing the way.
Its special feature is an 18″ speaker at the front and a 15″ speaker at the back. With bi-amp operation and the respective presets, different dispersion characteristics can be produced. The cardioid mode is optimised for maximum attenuation of the rearward sound dispersion, achieving attenuation greater than 15 dB over the entire bass spectrum. The end-fire mode is optimised for maximum sound pressure at the front with simultaneous partial reduction at the rear. Because of their directionality basses sound much more concrete and musical especially in venues with a lot of reverb. And the musicians on the stage as well as neighbours behind the stage are spared off the effects of excessive bass levels.
Of course, the VERA S33 can be used in all sorts of configurations.
As it has the same system width and compatible rigging mechanism, it can be unobtrusively and inconspicuously integrated into a VERA36 array.
But anything is possible – classic left-right stacks, horizontal rows in front of the stage, complete vertical stacked or flown bass arrays – and of course any combination with B series subs.
