INTRODUCING THE FOOTPRINT02: YOUR NEW COMPANION TO SONIC EXCELLENCE! Expanding on the success of the Footprint01, the first offering in Barefoot Sound`s innovative line of active 3-way speakers tailored for modern production workflows, we proudly introduce the Footprint02. This new addition brings the same exceptional audio quality and design finesse found in its predecessor, now in a more compact form and at an even more accessible price point.
The renowned 3-way monitor that redefined its class is now accompanied by the Footprint02, a smaller yet equally potent active nearfield speaker. Delivering uncompromising sound performance and design elements akin to the Footprint01, the Footprint02 is a true embodiment of our signature Barefoot excellence. These two models not only share a visual resemblance and top-notch quality, but also incorporate the same groundbreaking Barefoot signature features, including the Dual-Force™ technology with opposing subwoofers, dual ring radiator tweeter, and the transformative Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation™ (MEME) technology – a hallmark of our flagship MicroMain and MiniMain series.
Design-wise, the Footprint02 mirrors its elder sibling. It features side-mounted dual opposing paper cone subwoofers, accompanied by a dual ring radiator tweeter and an aluminum cone midrange driver set within an aluminum front sub baffle. The sleek, rounded corners and edges minimize cabinet diffraction, while the familiar front baffle configuration – with the tweeter placed below the midrange woofer – ensures optimal acoustic focus at the center of the cabinet.
Under the hood, the Footprint02 holds nearly identical specifications. With 2-way DSP crossover feeds and dual Class D amplifier modules, perfectly suited for its more compact cabinet size (approximately 60% of the Footprint01`s volume), the Footprint02 shines with dual opposing 6.5-inch subwoofers that extend bass response to impressive depths. Despite its smaller stature, the Footprint02 encompasses all the quintessential attributes of a Barefoot Sound speaker: remarkable sound quality, immersive 3-D imaging, and an expansive dynamic range.
THE TECHNOLOGICAL MARVELS BEHIND THE SCENES Central to Barefoot`s technology portfolio, Dual-Force revolutionizes sound quality by eliminating cabinet vibrations through the ingenious placement of opposing subwoofers. This ensures that the only sound you experience emanates from the drivers themselves, rendering the cabinet silent.
The dual ring radiator tweeter stands as a pivotal design element. To counteract the narrowing dispersion pattern that occurs as high-frequency wavelengths approach tweeter diaphragm diameter, we`ve integrated a center waveguide with the dual ring tweeter. The result: a broader high-frequency dispersion pattern at your listening position, optimizing your audio experience.
Barefoot`s pioneering MEME technology further enriches the versatility of the Footprint02. Tailored to fit various applications including playback rooms, mobile setups, homes, and production environments, MEME offers authentic emulations based on the performance and character of mix cube speakers, the iconic white coned speaker, and consumer hi-fi speakers. With a simple switch, you can effortlessly reference these legendary monitors without the need for multiple cluttered setups.
Elevate your sonic journey with the Footprint02 – the embodiment of audio finesse, cutting-edge technology, and affordability, all encapsulated in a compact masterpiece.
