Deep, punchy bass in the great outdoors
Add deeper, punchier bass to your commercial outdoor speaker system with the Klipsch CA-800-TSW. This all-weather subwoofer features multi-tap transformers for use with 70-volt or 100-volt distributed audio systems, or you can set it to "bypass mode" for use with more traditional home audio equipment.
The sub's 8" IMG (injection-molded graphite) woofer delivers solid bass. A built-in 150 Hz low-pass crossover allows the CA-800-TSW to blend in properly with your full-range outdoor speakers. Pair it with Klipsch's CA650T or CA800T outdoor commercial speakers for a full-range system with bass impact.

Klipsch CA-800-TSW Reviews

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I wasn't sure if this would work correctly if driven only from one channel and on the same line as one of my regular speakers. It did and sounds great. I ran a separate wire up to the speaker in case I needed to power it with a separate sub-woofer amp but think it sounds strong enough without the amp.
Pros: Sounds good when wired in line with one of the regular speakers and doesn't affect the volume of that speaker.
Cons: Directions for a speaker that costs this much are embarrassing confusing! Suggest Klipsch rewrite their very short instructions and include a hookup diagram for speakers other than their own.
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is a great subwoofer, my placement was under soffit corner it was a little to big for the location but I must say is worth it, I installed 2 pairs of Klipsh CT4 as complement for sound, powered by a Dayton Audio subwoofer amplifier connected to a Onkyo 8050 networked stereo receiver and an Apple airport as source, i can play wirelessly from Iphone, or ipad and sound is amazing, from pool or outdoor without a problem ( I had to amplify my wifi signal with a commercial grade Access Point) great rich sound for outdoors
Pros: Great looking speaker. Sound amazing

Commercial Outdoor Sub: The Klipsch CA-800-TSW is an all-purpose, all-weather subwoofer that delivers low frequency sound in outdoor applications. This subwoofer has been designed to complement the Klipsch CA Series and other small to medium-sized full-range speaker installations. The CA-800-TSW can deliver strong bass response in a variety of applications.
8" Woofer: The CA-800-TSW's 8" woofer is constructed form UV-resistant, glass-reinforced polypropylene and is durable against the elements. The Klipsch CA-800-TSW delivers a deep, accurate bass through its 8-inch, long excursion driver that has a high-temperature voice coil attached to an IMG cone which is light weight and offers excellent rigidity and water resistance. The 8" woofer can handle up to 150 watts.
Crossover: The CA-800-TSW incorporates a built-in low-pass crossover that ensures a seamless blend between the subwoofer and your high-frequency outdoor speakers. The Klipsch all-weather subwoofer features an integrated 12dB/Octave low-pass fixed at 150Hz.
Vented Weather Resistant Enclosure: The 8" woofer is housed inside a bass-reflex, UV-resistant, all-weather ABS enclosure for added efficiency and bass response. The Klipsch CA-8000TSW's enclosure is paintable and features a rustproof aluminum grille, which is also paintable. The grille stays securely fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation for increased weather resistance and years of maintenance-free protection regardless of the climate or environment.
Multi-Tap Transformer: The CA-800-TSW includes a multi-tap transformer for 70 or 100 volt installations. There is also a bypass position that allows normal 8-ohm operation for installations that do not require a transformer. The switch is on the back of the speaker and can be set using a small flat-head screwdriver.
Connections: The Klipsch CA-800-TSW is equipped with 4 barrier-strip, gold-plated connectors for connecting the subwoofer to your amplifier.
Placement: The Klipsch all-weather subwoofer is perfect for patios, decks, swimming pools, porches, or an other place where exposure to the elements make conventional loudspeaker usage unsuitable. The CA-800-TSW can be installed in a variety of locations due to bass frequencies being less directional than high frequencies. You will achieve better results if it is installed in a corner or near a wall where additional energy can be reflected from the walls.
Mounting: The Klipsch CA-800TSW comes supplied with a removable C-style mounting bracket. The included heavy-gauge powder-coated zinc C-bracket provides added mounting strength. This bracket attaches to the subwoofer with the supplied low profile knobs that thread onto the top and bottom studs protruding from the cabinet. This allows the subwoofer to be angled to the left or right when mounted vertically, or up and down when mounted horizontally. The additional 3/8"-16 threaded insert allows for use with optional mount brackets to offer even better placement flexibility.
