SubwooferSeries

A common misconception is that subwoofers are loud, boomy thump machines that simply make a lot of noise in dramatic movie action scenes, or shake your insides with the very loud beat emanating from the car next to you at the lights, or to add some boxy upper bass to a tiny tinny sounding mass market satellite system --nothing should be further from the truth.

A true subwoofer faithfully extends the music/sound on your CD, DVD, Blue Ray, etc. to the frequency region below the reach of your normal speakers (or the crossover point set on your home theatre amplifier). It should simply continue the bass down, and down, without being too loud, intrusive, slow, uneven in response, coloured or boomy. A good subwoofer is musical, accurate, has a fast response and is uncoloured in a well built inert cabinet; it enhances the realism of your music/movie, and your listening pleasure, and does not stand out like a throbbing sore thumb! All models have unique hybrid Transmission Line bass-loading channels like most of our floorstanding speakers and are musical, accurate, controlled, and perform beautifully and delicately at low volume levels as well.

Remember, the power of a subwoofer should be two to three times the power of one channel of your main HT amplifier.

Any subwoofer can be ordered as a passive subwoofer for less cost, without a built in plate amplifier, for customers who have their own outboard subwoofer amplification and control.
