Thread: Twelve South Mac Mobile Subwoofer Software Update BassJump 2

  1. #1
    Default Twelve South Mac Mobile Subwoofer Software Update BassJump 2

    The Twelve South BassJump Mobile Subwoofer for Mac systems gets a software update today.

    This is a mini subwoofer that will enchance your sound experience on any Mac. The body of the system is built from aluminum just like a MacBook Pro/Air, or iMac, and it has a sleek look as if Apple designed it. It comes with a 30 inch USB cable that plugs into your Mac and does not require any extra AC cables to operate; it gets all the power it needs from your USB jack. It can output around 80dB using a 77 mm subwoofer speaker which is a significant boost for anyone who knows what a Mac's built-in speakers sound like. They just don't have any boom.

    This mini subwoofer is nowhere as powerful as a real subwoofer. It's only made to add some depth to your sound that comes from your Mac already. It will not replace the sound that comes out of your internal speakers, but it will compliment them by generating noise at the same time. The device operates off of application software that you install on your Mac. You can enable or Disable the subwoofer, and disconnect it at any time. The application software update is the reason that we're reporting on it today.

    The Twelve South BassJump Mobile Subwoofer isn't new, but the software update gives it some new capabilities. The update makes the BassJump work with newer models of Macs such as the new MacBook Air/Pro and even Thunderbolt/Cinema displays. It also allows the subwoofer to perform at an extra 8dB than the previous software. This update brings the name of the device from BassJump to BassJump 2. The software comes with tools for adjusting the volume of the external device as well as the frequencies.

    A typical subwoofer is much larger and filters frequencies around 100Hz and under. Consumer subwoofers typically have a frequency range of about 20–200Hz. Professional grade subwoofers can drop below 100Hz. THX-approved systems usually reach about 80Hz. The BassJump 2 can reach about 50Hz-20kHz.

    The BassJump 2 costs $69.99, and can be bought here.
    The BassJump software can be downloaded here.
    If you have used the BassJump before, and you have the old software installed, you can just install the new version over the old version to get the updates. The update is free.

    More information about tech specs and FAQ can be read here.

    So what do you think about the BassJump 2? Isn't it gorgeous? Leave a comment below!

    This is an Apple/Mac website that reports on Apple/Mac relate news, it isn't devoted purely to jailbreaking, but all aspects of Mac.

    Instead of criticizing the author, maybe you should consider the fact that if you upgrade the software, you are in fact making a modification to it.The name of said product is "Twelve south MAC Subwoofer. Does it need to be explained further?

    What about this sentence makes sense? Nothing. Disregard this entirely.

    What's wrong with it, zatpgw? All it does is make a comparison to how the performance of the BassJump 2 is to professional-grade subwoofers.
