Unity Audio Rock Mk-III and Avalanche

Posted on: Friday 8th of March 2019

Key changes on the MK-III include the new Crystal Membrane 180mm woofer and amplification. The new woofer is the same size as the previous MK-II, but electronically and mechanically far superior. The 180mm woofer cone is manufactured with sandwich AS technology: a paper cone to which an aluminium foil is glued with enhanced acoustic characteristics, less distortion, improved dynamics and higher SPL capabilities. The unconventional voice coil mounting results in an expansion of the transmission range of the woofer by nearly an octave, the new woofer can handle up to ±15mm excursion. The Mk-III model now uses quiet and efficient Class D amplifiers, with a combined output of 360 watts per cabinet. The Rock MK-III is available now at £2,144 or $2,938 a pair ex VAT.

Unity Audio have announced the new Avalanche MK-II DSP active sub-woofer. This now replaces the original Avalanche introduced in 2012 which is now no longer in production.
The MK-II DSP retains many aspects of the original version such as the 65 litre sealed dual chamber Aperiodic vent cabinet, which gives all the benefits of a sealed cabinet; no port noise, tight fast accurate bass reproduction, but it also increases the bass response from a smaller cabinet. The cabinet dimensions of 490mm high x 430mm wide x 430mm deep are also the same as the original Avalanche and includes 4 heavy duty isolating rubber feet. The same heavy duty 12” downward firing woofer is also the same as the original.
The new features include a more powerful 700 watt Class D amplifier and DSP* based input/crossover. The connector panel still offers 2x XLR balanced inputs and 2x XLR balanced outputs and an Ethernet socket to control the DSP software from either a Mac or PC.
