SAVI Systems present the Castle Compact Sub 1
Castle Acoustics has been a loudspeaker manufacturer in the truest possible sense since 1973, with both design and manufacture of their world famous speakers housed entirely in one factory. The brand was formed with the founding concept of being a complete loudspeaker manufacturer and despite changing times and the globalisation of manufacturing, Castle maintains the same principle as the basis for the company. Castle have been famous for their gorgeous real wood veneer finishes, as much as for the silky smooth, accurate sound that makes them an absolute pleasure to listen to.
Castle speakers are one of only a handful of speaker manufacturers who design and make their own speaker drivers giving them complete control at design stage to make everything work together exactly as required. The drive units form the heart of any speaker system, and their quality is key to its sonic capability. Castle drivers are developed to the highest standards, often featuring new and innovative technology.
Another recognisable trait of all Castle speakers is the beautiful wood grain finish, due to the choice of real wood veneers. Castle speakers don't look like most other speakers, they have a beautiful furniture grade wood veneer finish that you can proudly display in your room. All of Castle's veneers are carefully selected by a team of experienced staff, some of whom have more than thirty years of expertise in selecting the right veneer for each application. Each leaf of veneer is selected by eye to suit the size of cabinet and each pair of cabinet is manufactured in mirror-image-matched pairs, even the black ash ones. Castle selects the finest crown cut quality veneers from around the world and whenever possible, from properly managed forest resources. Veneer sections are glued to individual panels and then held under high pressure in purpose built clamps for the glue to dry naturally over 48 hours. On completion, each cabinet is hand-sanded and varnished to perfection, with quality and consistency of the finish checked every step of the way.
The Castle Compact Sub is a relatively small, active dynamic drive sub in the gorgeous wood veneered finish that Castle is famous for. Within the beautifully wood veneered enclosure is a 10" long throw driver for some pretty serious bass enhancement. The Compact Sub 1 is designed to integrate well with the Castle Lincoln and Knight ranges or, of course, can be used as part of any other surround or 2.1 channel system.
