Our take on the Klipsch RW-5802

by Amanda P.

Why add a powered subwoofer?

A powered subwoofer gives you bass you can feel as well as hear. Our customers love the depth and impact their subs add to music and movies. We hear comments like "it brings out sounds I didn't know existed in discs I've watched a million times." Powered subwoofers aren't just for big bass that rattles your picture frames; they can also deliver tight, accurate lows. If you haven't shopped for a powered sub in a while, you might be surprised at how small they get. Look for an ultra-compact model if you want to tuck your sub away under an end table or in a corner.

Enjoy hard-hitting bass from a subwoofer that blends beautifully into your room. This Klipsch system includes an in-wall subwoofer that installs flush in your wall, as well as a powerful external amplifier. The subwoofer features two strong-yet-light 8" woofers designed for tight, precise bass. And its special enclosure minimizes sound transfer into adjacent rooms.

Clean power for smooth bass
This subwoofer is packaged here with Klipsch's custom-matched amplifier. It provides 300 watts of clean power, giving you high-impact, low-distortion bass. The amp's standard chassis width and attractive aluminum face plate allow it to fit in easily with your other components. Or you can hide it away in a cabinet to reduce clutter. This rugged amplifier can even power two of these Klipsch in-wall subs for bigger, stronger lows.
