A subwoofer is an absolute essential for any home theater or music setup. It’s the piece that puts you in the middle of the action, has you grabbing your chest during those high-adrenaline movie scenes, and adds emotion to your music. However, some subwoofers can really stick out like a sore thumb. The Bryston Model A subwoofer is the type of piece that can really disturb the neighbors (in a good way!), without disturbing the decor.
This new subwoofer is designed to put the boom into your room via two opposing long-throw 10-inch woofers and a 400-watt internal amplifier that has its own enclosure. However, it packs that power in a compact cabinet, so it won’t be a big old eyesore.
Putting those drivers in an opposing configuration means that this array can help cancel cabinet resonance energy, all while deliver strong, detailed bass. Other features include crossover, phase, and level adjustments, as well as a 3/4-inch MDF cabinet with dual rear-facing ports.
“Bryston had a very specific goal in mind with the conception of the Model A subwoofer,” said James Tanner, Bryston’s sales VP. “Our Model T subwoofers are a taller column form factor, and our dealers felt that they needed a high-performance, smaller, discreet subwoofer solution to accommodate some room designs. The Model A subwoofer delivers superlative performance from a compact enclosure.”
Bryson is shipping the Model A subwoofer in Boston Cherry, Natural Cherry and Black Ash, but custom finishes are available for an additional charge. It comes with rubberized aluminum leveling feet, a heavy gauge AC line cord, and an MSRP of $2,000.
