Unity Audio have raised the bar for the Super Rock, offering even greater resolution and detail while providing more SPL and bass extension.Quite possibly the ultimate expression of a 2-way design, The Super Rock starts out as a Rock MKII and turns every detail up to eleven! Unity have analysed every single component and parameter of The Rock in microscopic detail and challenged their designers to improve it whilst keeping the same 2-way design and convenient form factor. What they achieved is quite simply a landmark product that goes deeper, hits harder and retrieves even greater levels of resolution. Although at its heart it's a 2-way it certainly Rocks like a miniature Boulder.
Starting with the drivers, Unity have increased the diameter of the bass driver up to 220mm, the same size as it's bigger brother, The Boulder. However their engineers didn't just settle for using the exact same driver, they demanded a new specification specifically matched to The Super Rock's smaller sealed cabinet. The 200mm SEAS custom aluminium woofer delivers amazing micro and macro-dynamics. The cone and the low loss rubber surround have been specifically designed to eliminate cone edge resonance and distortion typically associated with soft cones.
The same long, high temperature voice coil as The Boulder provides super low distortion and very high power handling capacity. The bass driver hands over seamlessly to an all-new Air Motion Transformer Tweeter from respected German manufacturer Mundorf. This has incredibly low distortion figures, excellent transient response and carefully considered dispersion characteristics that deliver seamless inter-driver coherence.
Cabinet coloration's are kept to a minimum with a redesigned Corian front baffle. Depth is up from 12mm to a huge 18mm with large radius edges to reduce reflections and improve imaging. Like The Rock MKII, The Super Rock features the same attention to detail and is made from 18mm, 9-ply Baltic Birch plywood rather than inferior MDF, typically used by competitors. Unity's front to rear bracing system is also incorporated to stop cabinet flexing.
Super Rocks are ideal in a 2.1 or 5.1 system configuration when partnered with an Avalanche Sub-woofer or used as rears in a Boulder 5.1 surround system due to their highly consistent sonic signature.
