However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Flexible Components

The professional-grade components built into the KH 805 deliver maximum acoustic and audio quality, resulting in the powerful and punchy low-end response the subwoofer provides. The four routing modes give you maximum flexibility over your inputs, giving you optimal control. The four routing modes on the right input connector are: Right channel bass management, LFE to subwoofer only up to 120 Hz, Wide for multi-channel system where the bass management is the source and Daisy chain for subwoofer arrays. There are also adaptable acoustic controls that adapt to the subwoofer's response to the environment. The adaptable controls include: Output level, low cut, parametric equalizer and 45° step phase control. These help to maximise the KH 805's power output, clarity and overall sound reproduction, delivering the premium quality audio they produce. There is also an integrated electronic limiter for amplifier and driver protection safeguarding against any damage.

Robust Construction

Neumann has designed the KH 805 to deliver the maximum possible output levels whilst maintaining the rich, natural tones of your sound. The durable wooden cabinet the subwoofer is housed in is finished in a durable paint (anthracite) and features high density rubber isolating feet for optimal stability, safeguarding against any superficial damage. The magnetically shielded long-throw driver is designed to ensure minimal distortion, helping to eliminate any harsh frequencies. This allows the main loudspeakers to play loud and with lower distortion whilst not compromising on power and performance. Self-damping properties that result in minimal cabinet resonances, help to deliver the high quality, thick bass response.
