BG Radia - Home Theater Reviews

www.bgradia.com [cached]

It's become a tradition that Igor Levitsky, BG Radia's VP of engineering and research, presents me with a bottle of Russian vodka the one or two times a year we have the chance to meet. (We have something of a Russian connection. I took Russian in college. He took college in Russia.) So when Igor came to my house to set up and tweak BG Radia's BGX-4850 in-wall subwoofer system ($6,995 as tested), he did not disappoint. So now you know, and I can state categorically that neither the gifting nor the drinking had any influence on my ultimate impression of the system. Hopefully, this public airing will make Igor feel like he has to maintain the tradition. When I first heard that Igor was working with Laurie Fincham (THX's chief scientist and VP of research and development) on a project to develop the world's first THX Ultra2-certified in-wall subwoofer, I thought maybe he'd been swigging from one of those vodka bottles that were meant for me. After all, THX Ultra2 certification is for products that are designed to be used in large home theater rooms, typically around 3,000 cubic feet with a viewing distance of approximately 12 feet.

...
Fincham and Levitsky have come up with just such a thing.
...
Levitsky tells me that the subs reduce vibration even further by using small, specially shaped woofer pods made out of a glass-reinforced composite material.
...
Levitsky says BG likes to use these locking speaker connectors because they provide a highly reliable connection that protects against electric shock and shorting. That's correct, but it still doesn't make them any easier to terminate. Fortunately for me, Levitsky offered to do the wiring. However, I did have to let him borrow a tiny screwdriver to do the job. The Why Four and the Where Four If the amp has only two channels, what's up with having four modules? Couldn't BG have just made the modules a little taller, added a few more drivers, and called it a day using only two? First of all, in order to achieve the volume levels that are required for THX Ultra2 certification, the system needs driver surface area. (BG also makes the $4,995 BGX- 2450 that includes the same amp and two of the sub modules. This configuration is THX Select2 certified and may be fine in a smaller room and satisfying at lower listening levels. ) However, volume is only part of the story. As Levitsky explained, if you're a single, action-movie junkie with no prospects of romantic involvement any time soon, put your subwoofers in one corner of the room.
...
To prove the point about the value of multiple sub locations, Levitsky captured the response curves in the room with one, two, and then all four subwoofers in action.

Curses on you, Levitsky and Fincham!

"Our ribbon-based planar diaphragm is activated by an electromagnetic force that eliminates the need for a voice coil and makes the speaker exceptionally flat," explained Igor Levitsky, vice president of engineering for Nevada-based BG Corp.

...
According to Levitsky, "BG makes more planar ribbon drivers than anyone else, so in addition to high quality we need our diaphragms in high volume - and again, Graphic Packaging is able to deliver."
