With the stylishly-designed and compact SW6.5 and SW8 subwoofers, installers can place a high-powered, highly attractive and easily concealed subwoofer virtually anywhere for a home theater or home audio system.
The SW6.5 and SW8 have a number of technical features that make them perfect for home installation. They both feature automated turn-on via 12 volt trigger or audio signal sensing and include a built in CAT5 balun to enable audio delivery over easy-to-use CAT5 cable. Additionally, both models come with a built-in bracket-mount that is compatible with the optional OmniMount 30.0 ST-MP to allow easy wall or ceiling mounting, making it perfect for all residential installations. Installers can further increase the subwoofers' placement flexibility by going wireless with the optional Niles SW-T wireless transceiver and SW-R receiver that easily attaches to a built-in mounting port on the rear of the subwoofers.
The compact subwoofers provide a number of benefits to users. With the compact size, the subwoofers can be easily placed anywhere in the home without taking up too much room. As for the audio, the SW6.5 produces 200W RMS power and up to 800W peak power through a 6.5" active driver and two 6.5" passive radiators with a frequency response of 42-200Hz. This unbelievable power is delivered from a cabinet that is smaller than 10 inches-cubed and weighs only 11 pounds.
The SW8 is able to offer even more, producing 300W RMS power and up to 1200W peak power through an 8" active driver and two 8" passive radiators with a frequency response of 36-200Hz. Once again, this room-filling bass performance comes from an amazingly small cabinet about 12 inches-cubed that weighs only 16.5 pounds.
