“The new HEDD product line demonstrates what can be achieved today both in audio quality and control versatility. We believe that we are about to set a new benchmark within MI / Pro Audio whilst increasing the company’s potential to be successful in both the Broadcast- and Consumer Audio realm.” - Klaus Heinz, CTO HEDD Audio

A New Generation of HEDD Studio Monitors and Subwoofers

Grown out of our highly praised Series ONE studio monitor line, HEDD is proud to announce brand-new MK2 models and additional subwoofers.

HEDD TYPE 05 MK2 (black/white) - Studio Monitor, 2-way, 2x100W with DSP

HEDD TYPE 07 MK2 (black/white) - Studio Monitor, 2-way, 2x100W with DSP

HEDD TYPE 20 MK2 (black/white) - Studio Monitor, 3-way, 3x300W with DSP

HEDD TYPE 30 MK2 (black/white) - Studio Monitor, 3-way, 3x300W with DSP HEDD BASS 08 (black) - Subwoofer, 8", 300W with DSP

HEDD BASS 12 (black) - Subwoofer, 12", 700W with DSP

Three striking innovations put this new and advanced DSP-powered speaker
line on top of today’s monitoring landscape:
1. HEDD Lineariser® Integration
2. »CoP« Technology (Closed or Ported)
3. The First Phase-Linear Subwoofer / Satellite System

HEDD LINEARISER® INTEGRATION

Implemented in the MK2 and subwoofer models is the HEDD Lineariser®, a phase linearisation tool that leads to perfect impulse responses and an audibly improved spatial reproduction.

»CoP« TECHNOLOGY (Closed or Ported)

Ever since there have been loudspeakers, there have been 2 different design approaches to get a good bass response: closed box design, sometimes called infinite baffle, and bass reflex speakers, or ported designs. By offering removable plugs for the bass ports, combined with advanced FIR (Finite Impulse Response filtering), we now give our users the choice between these two worlds: A pin-point transient response / optimum accuracy (closed cabinet approach) or the advantages of a dynamic and low-reaching bass-ported design with increased SPL.

THE FIRST LINEAR SUBWOOFER / SATELLITE SYSTEM (GDC for Group Delay Compensation)

We are introducing a completely phase linear Sat-Sub system, a real first. These are the first Satellite Sub systems that are completely “...right in time” by applying switchable group delay at the satellite output. The potential listener distances between subwoofers and satellites can be compensated in a ± 2 m range, together with HEDD MK2 monitors a Linear Phase satellite system can be realized.

HEDD BASS 08 and BASS 12

BASS 08 and BASS 12 are the first HEDD subwoofers to appear on the market. They excel in precise low frequency reproduction by newly developed drive units, excellent high power amplifiers and the use of linear phase (or FIR) filters down to 20 Hz. Furthermore they offer a satellite output that can influence the output (group delay) of the units to achieve a complete linear phase operation of satellite-sub systems – if HEDD monitors with switched on Lineariser are in place.

Alltogether we introduce 3 major innovations into the world of subwoofers:
1. CoP (Closed or Ported) / An innovative choice for the bass response nobody had offered before: removable plugs in the ports together with adapted FIR (Finite Impulse response) filtering allow optimum results in either operating mode.
2. Switchable HEDD Lineariser® to avoid any phase errors within the low frequency reproduction down to 20 Hz in either mode (closed or ported). A complete Linear Phase operation down to 20 Hz is achieved with high resolution by using a separate clock for low frequencies.
3. Complete Linear Phase Satellite-Subwoofer systems / By applying switchable group delay at the satellite output. The potential listener distances between subwoofers and satellites can be compensated in .5 dB steps within a ± 2 m range, together with HEDD MK2 monitors a Linear Phase satellite system can be installed for the first time.

Additional HEDD subwoofer features
• Switchable Low Pass filtering for use with diff. crossover frequencies including two LFE modes • Switchable LF range normal/ extended (15% lower=less SPLmax) and a +10dB option for LFE
• AES interface input selector for analog, AES left, AES right or AES mono
• Input sensitivity pot. range -10 dB to + 4dB, so AD conversion can be optimized
• Gain: Analog pot from -12 dB to +12 dB
BASS 08 and BASS 12 are compatible with our previous generation of studio monitors.

AVAILABILITY
The new MK2 monitors will be available early January 2021 and the BASS subwoofers shortly later.
