Portable and quite good in sound

J. R., 06.06.2016
The MS12 Sub is part of the db DVA mini system and therefore also adapted for use with the DVA mini tops. The tops can either be fastened directly to the sub with snap-in closures or by way of spacers with 20mm threads (plus tripod adapters), depending on whether you want the right towers or the classic top on sub arrangement. Both work wonderfully and stably. My favorite is already the tower, each two subs and two tops without bar or additional material linked together looks just pretty chic !!!
To put two subs on top, one has to unscrew the feet at the upper, goes without a tool, but is a little fiddly and can not be done in seconds!
The rest in processing and operation is absolutely convincing! At connections you have what you need, but also no more, Powercon in, Powercon out, xlr in, xlr out, the latter only simple, so mono! A USB interface is also there, which gives access to data and firmware of the DSP.

And does the dwarf sound passable?
YES, as long as you keep the performance data and the natural laws in the back! That from such a small volume and small diaphragm area no 140db monster basses at 35Hz come out, should be clear! But the Bassdrum has never sounded as crisp and clean as on this subs! Wonderful tidy, without giddiness and yet with fullness the reproduction in the deep area. And if you really want to have the Rumms from the very bottom, then you just make a (or even more) active 18-sub to it and will surely no longer complain. Overall, the MS12 moves however properly air and leaves over the power specifications 700W, 131db and 45Hz no doubt arise, that is once clarified!

The concept of the DVA mini series I like personally excellent, everything thought out and very well implemented and processed (albeit in China ....). With the 26kg and the dimensions of a larger beverage crate, the sub is also super to transport, with the corresponding Flyrig also flightable! Last but not least, the possibility of nearly any extension is an argument, real line array just!
Small minus at the end: the supplied power cable is extremely stiff and bockig, but it is one, quite contrary to the DVA mini tops, which come quite without ......
