Sunfire True Subwoofer Architectural Subwoofer
Introduction The True Subwoofer Architectural is an 11-inch cube weighing 40 lbs. with a price tag of $1,395 in black and $1,450 for its optional white finish. The Sunfire True Architectural Sub shares much of the technology found in Sunfire’s top-of-the-line $1,995 Signature Subwoofer, with the exception that it was designed so that the owner has the option of being able to place it in a cabinet. The demand for the Architectural Subwoofer originally came from custom installers who were looking for creative ways to better hide components. It is no secret that some components such as your main loudspeakers should remain on the open floor for optimal performance. Because low-frequency information is for the most part considered to be non-directional, many were interested in the possibility of hiding the subwoofer in a cabinet. The big question is whether it can perform as well as a subwoofer that is well-positioned on a listening room ...

RBH TS-12AP Subwoofer
Introduction RBH Sound, named after chief designer Roger B. Hassing (not to be confused with the late James B. Lansing) has recently risen up as a contender in the highly competitive US loudspeaker market with a lineup of high performance affordable music and theater speakers. RBH speakers are known for their use of aluminum drivers like those found on Velodyne and Monitor Audio speakers. RBH dresses up their speakers in ultra sexy colors and wood finishes not too far from what you’d expect from the super boutique, high end loudspeaker manufacturers such as Wilson and THIEL. The system I evaluated includes the MC-6T speakers and TS-12AP powered subwoofer priced at $1099 pair (for cherry or semi gloss white finishes, $999 in the black oak finish) and $799, respectively. My MC-6T and TS-12AP both came finished in a very high quality cherry wood veneer with removable, black grille covers. I was shocked when I opened ...

Audio Specialiste Dimension D-SUB 10 Subwoofer
Introduction The D-SUB 10 is an entry level, very active subwoofer manufactured by Audio Specialiste. This member of the Dimension product family sits in the living room unnoticed until a signal is detected by the auto on/off circuitry, then it's time to bar the door. The unit is offered at a power-packed $499.00 The Audio Specialiste’s family tree, a Canadian based company, officially extended its limbs into the United States and international markets at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. The company offers 30 models within four product groups; Virtuel, Dimension, Crescendo, and Propheti. The genetic pool of the D-SUB 10 is deep. The unit offers a very rigid 10" polycone speaker encased in a 14 inch (h) x 14 1/3 inch (w) x 18 1/2"(d) enclosure. The slotted band pass design braces the woofer facing the forward reflective panel of the enclosure. Sound waves are then released through a horizontal slot, or port, in ...

Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior Subwoofer
Introduction The Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior is the latest in Sunfire’s line of subwoofers priced competitively at $895. Those of you who are regular readers of should be familiar with this series of subwoofers. For those of you who are new to these pages or who just need a recap, here it is: big subwoofer performance, little box. The Junior is a nine-inch cube that weighs a beefy 28 pounds. This tiny cube can reach down to an amazing 22 Hz thanks to two long excursion six-inch drivers powered by a 1200-watt amplifier. The technology involved in moving so much air with these two small drivers is pretty interesting. Sunfire uses an advanced amplifier design that averages about 120 watts, but can produce up to 1200 watts when necessary, feeding horizontally opposed drivers. One driver is passive; both have long excursions that permit the displacement of large amounts of air, the true key to ...

Monitor Audio ASW 210 Subwoofer
Introduction A huge sound in a small package solidly sums up the performance of the Monitor Audio Silver 4 speakers ($849 a pair) and ASW 210 subwoofer ($999). The small 15.5-inch by eight-inch main speakers, coupled with the 200-watt self-powered subwoofer, were a welcome surprise. Sat/sub speaker systems are a dime a dozen these days and that’s what a lot of them are worth. Just as in my past experiences with Monitor Audio products, I was not disappointed in the least. The patented cone material for all drivers, C-CAM (Ceramic Coated Aluminum Magnesium alloy), is light and rigid. The Silver 4’s are a two-way design, front-ported, with a 6.5-inch mid-bass driver and a gold dome tweeter. There are two sets of sturdy, gold-plated binding posts on each speaker for bi-wiring. The subwoofer is outfitted with two 10-inch drivers, one downfiring and the other forward-firing. While the Silver 4’s are small and capable of sitting comfortably on ...
