SpeakerCraft has some bass for your face—as well as the crevices of your walls. The company recently announced its Cinema line, three new subwoofers that may not fit your stocking, but can be stuffed inside any wall.
Each of the new units boast a unique driver construction. “Quality sub bass requires more than just a driver in the right size box,” says Tom Lee, SpeakerCraft’s principal loudspeaker enginner. “A careful balance between the motor structure, suspension, cone parameters and cabinet design is critical to delivering the sound pressure and low frequencies required in today’s music and theater systems.”
The three models include 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch versions. Dedicated amplifiers with 150, 200 and 250 watts of power are optimized to drive the three models; each also feature a front-panel volume control.
The three systems will retail for $750, $1,000 and $1,500 respectively.
