π X π = BEAUTY + BASS
This hybrid active system combines the pure beauty of our passive second generation Pi (π) Monitor...
Pi-Bass offers full crossover controls allowing for seamless room integration.
Driving the upper Pi monitors with speaker level output allows the Pi-Bass module to accept line-level pre-amp RCA outputs from an integrated amp like our T-211.

The 9.87 IN DETAIL
Anyone who thinks a single-driver loudspeaker lacks low-frequency delivery has simply never experienced our award-winning 9.87 System.
This modular hybrid active system consists of two units coupled together to perform seamlessly as one.
On top is our acclaimed second-gen passive Pi monitor that can be ordered with drivers of your choice.
On the bottom is the mighty Pi-Bass. A woofer extension system that combines the Ripol® speaker design philosophy with our proprietary Acoustic Stealth Technology®. The result is a fully open system that moves close to zero air volume allowing for free placement within a room.
The lower Pi-Bass module is equipped with 2 x 96dB neodymium woofers each (=99dB). These woofers are extremely fast and are driven by a 250W class A/B plate amp tuned by our electronics team.
Given this unique combination, this system runs semi-active in that the Pi monitors on top need no crossover and are fed directly from the high-level speaker cable taps from a complimentary amplifier like our Voxativ T-211 Integrated (the perfect pairing).
The bottom Pi-Bass woofer module has it's own amplifier and can be driven up to an onboard crossover setting of 120 Hz (recommended) with a full range of EQ to blend into any room.
We suggest a line-level RCA connection from your preamp to the Pi-Bass for highest fidelity (although a high-level speaker cable connection is also possible.)
The result is the most powerful full-range system the industry has ever experienced linear down to 20Hz in low-frequency slam.
