A Clean 10 on the BASS Richter Scale

Experts agree: Having two wireless subwoofers is an essential upgrade to any home theater. Don't just hear the sonic boom but feel it with a pair of wireless subwoofers that merge to create a sweet spot with no boundary. Unleash concert or cinema level volumes without a trace of distortion. Get adrenaline pumping bass effects at all listening levels, even at low volumes.

Cinema approach: Zero subwoofer localization

Cinemas utilize many subwoofers to reproduce powerful movie bass effects that often push subwoofer limits. At home, it is impossible to create the cinema experience with only a single subwoofer, which results in localizable bass and a detectable sweet spot. In contrast, dual subwoofers deliver smooth, balanced bass across the entire space, making everyone feel right in the center of the action.

Soundbar Reference Standard for Bass

Our signature dual subwoofer configuration stands alone as the soundbar reference standard for bass. Featuring 8" drivers with massive motor magnets, our subwoofers effortlessly fill the room with extreme kinetic energy at any listening level. An entirely new dimension of bass performance, a dimension so satisfying that listening to a single subwoofer will forever become an act of compromise.

Up to 7.2.4 channels of Extreme Sound
