Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ Signature Subwoofer
Introduction Subwoofers are perhaps the hardest speaker in an AV system for consumers to evaluate. This is due in part to the fact that the best performing subwoofer isn’t necessarily the one that creates the lowest bass response or that rattles the rafters with the greatest fury, but rather the one that best blends with your entire system. When a subwoofer is perfectly matched to your system, you are in theory unable to locate its position and rock-bottom bass would seem to be emanating from your main front loudspeakers. The in-room bass response or, more accurately, your personal room response is what you are really looking for. Herein lies the problem. Unless you are an acoustics guru with sophisticated sound-measuring equipment, you have little chance of getting your new sub to sound great in your room. Bob Carver, a man perhaps best known for making small subwoofers popular, offers his newest solution to the problem ...

Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Subwoofer
Introduction Outlaw Audio has very quickly earned a fantastic reputation for selling high-quality electronics at a high value price by bypassing the retailer and using the Internet to sell factory direct. This is hardly a new business model, but the highly successful implementation and consumer appeal of their model in the audio-video industry make Outlaw unique. Outlaw Audio sells various audio electronics, including a critically acclaimed under $1,000 AV preamp and a host of power amps for music and home theater. The company has just now released their first speaker, a powered subwoofer. The Outlaw LFM-1 Subwoofer, which stands for Low Frequency Module 1, is a 12-inch down-firing dual-ported sub that retails for a competitively priced $579 for a single sub and a discounted $999 for two. The LFM-1’s enclosure measures 21.75 inches in height by 15 inches wide and 22 inches in depth. At a beefy 58 pounds, this sub has the heft you expect ...

Definitive Technology SuperCube Reference Subwoofer
Introduction There’s nothing more satisfying while watching a movie or listening to music than deep, bone-shaking bass. While surround sound in the home has given us a magical experience of movie-watching in our living rooms or home theaters, a lot of home set-ups tend to ignore the lower frequencies, the argument being that as long as it booms and fits in the living space, what more could be achieved? Then came alternatives. High-performance mini-cube subwoofers garnered acclaim by producing a better sound than the subwoofers that come in pre-packaged systems and it didn’t intrude on the décor. People were amazed at what these diminutive cubes could produce, with their long excursion drivers and high-powered amplification. Seemingly, the quest for a home friendly subwoofer had ended. But as impressive as the performance of the space-saving miracles are, they don’t generate the sound pressure levels and true lower frequencies that their bigger cousins produce. In order to get ...

Paradigm Reference Seismic 12 Subwoofer
Introduction Paradigm Electronics Inc. has established a well-deserved reputation in the subwoofer market, particularly with their impressive and affordable Reference Servo-1. I have spent considerable time integrating and listening to numerous Servo-15s in a variety of systems and rooms over the last few years, and can verify that the Paradigm woofers are a real player in the field. However, Paradigm did not offer an option for those space or décor-challenged customers who desired a diminutive but powerful bona fide subwoofer. After four years of intensive research and development, Paradigm has answered this demand with their recently released entries into the ultra-small powered subwoofer arena, the Reference Seismic 10 and Reference Seismic 12. It was with a considerable amount of anticipation and high expectations that I received Paradigm’s larger model, the Reference Seismic 12 subwoofer ($1,699) a few months ago. Description Subwoofers are often the hardest things to justify to the significant other of a home theater buff. The large, ...

Revel Sub 30 Subwoofer
Introduction The Revel Sub 30 is the latest addition to Revel’s Ultima line of premium loudspeakers. Building on lessons learned with the groundbreaking Revel B15 subwoofer in the Performa line, the Sub 30 comes to the AV market in a whole new class in terms of both performance and aesthetics. Gone are the boring black box lines of a traditional subwoofer. The Revel Sub 30 rounds out the lines with the kind of industrial design that you might expect more from Apple than Harman; however, anyone who has seen the new Harman-Kardon receivers might say the U.S. electronics manufacturer has turned a new page in terms of their products’ physical appearance. The price for the Revel Sub 30 starts at $5,990 for a standard finish. It can also be ordered with aluminum side panels for a $500 premium. The speaker complement includes a 15-inch driver and a secondary 15-inch dual-layer metal dome acoustic radiator. The ...
