Artison Nano 1 Subwoofer Preview
I first got a look at Artison many years ago when I reviewed one of their earliest flat panel TV speakers, the Sketch LCR. Now, Artison is getting ready to ship its first subwoofer, the RCC Nano 1. The Artison Nano 1 subwoofer is small, designed for ease of use, but not shy on performance. Though it measures just 7.5″ x 8″ x 9″ (less than a 9″ cube!) it comes with a powerful 300 watt amplifier and a piston area equivalent to a sub utilizing an 8″ woofer. The RCC Nano 1 includes a variable crossovers and dual active 6.5″ long throw aluminum drivers. The Artison RCC Nano 1 is so small, it presents an incredible option for custom installers looking to meet the needs of clients wishing for a diminutive subwoofer that can be place in an unobtrusive location. While I’m sure Artison would love to sell their this sub as an accompaniment to their thin speakers, the truth is that the RCC Nano 1 will fit well with just about any home theater system.

The Nano 1 subwoofer uses Artison’s reactance canceling (vibration free) design. The enclosure is made of 6061 T6 aluminum, which contributes to the thin form factor of the Nano. Additionally, Artison uses damping materials alongside a unique bass-enhancing algorithm to allow the Nano 1 to compete with much larger subwoofers.
“Many installations and audio configurations benefit from a freestanding subwoofer. With the Nano 1 subwoofer, our custom installer and CE dealer partners can help their customers achieve optimal bass and special effects reproduction from a compact unit that complements any décor.”Cary Christie, Artison's iconic founder and chief designer
