Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Dynamic Power: The RW-10d's
amplifier is rated at 260 watts RMS and 575 watts dynamic power. The dynamic
power rating indicates the power the amplifier will deliver to the woofer under
normal operating conditions for a subwoofer. While the RMS power rating
indicates power available on a continuous, long-term basis, subwoofers
large, short-term peaks of power to to support the wide dynamics required by
today's digital music formats and movie soundtracks. Therefore the dynamic power rating can
be used as an indication of a subwoofer's real-world performance.
Bass-reflex Design: Using
exclusive Corner Port technology, the port tube runs diagonally through the
enclosure, allowing it to be as long as possible without bending; minimizing
turbulence that can cause port noise and distortion. This also allows the
enclosure to be tuned to a lower frequency than would otherwise be possible to
create deeper bass from a smaller cabinet. Another important element is a
corner-shaped flange at the port's internal opening, which amplifies the
benefits of a longer port.
Cerametallic Woofer: The 10-inch woofer features Klipsch's
distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic material. Made with an anodized
aluminum, this cone is strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts
its inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb
damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the
woofer's operating range.
DCS Digital User-Interface:
With the exception of the master power switch, all functions are adjusted using
the DCS (Digitally Controlled Subwoofer) digital user-interface on the top of the sub:
- Volume: adjust the subwoofer volume
relative to the rest of the system
- Recall Settings: recall one of three user defined settings;
Movie, Music, and Night
- EQ Mode: choose between Flat, Punch (emphasizing the 60 Hz
region), and Depth (boosts the 30 Hz region)
- Lowpass: adjust the crossover from 40 Hz to 120 Hz in 5 Hz steps;
the crossover can also be bypassed, useful for an LFE signal that's already
- Phase: adjust the phase from 0° to 180° in 10° steps
- Brightness: set the display brightness to one of four settings
- Power: choose Auto On or Always On; the Auto-On Circuit turns the
amplifier on when an audio signal is detected and off after approximately 20 minutes with no input signal;
the master power switch on the back panel overrides this setting
- Keypad Lock: the keypad can be locked to prevent any accidental
IR Sensor: An infrared remote sensor on the rear panel
allows integration with universal control systems. The RW-10d IR codes can be
found on Klipsch's web site.
Preamp Level Input: The left and right line-level jacks should be used when connecting the subwoofer to a
pre-amp, signal processor, line-level crossover, or receiver with pre-amp level
outputs. Use the left input when connecting to a single LFE output.
Speaker Level Input: The speaker level jacks connect directly to the speaker outputs of an
amplifier, integrated amplifier, or receiver.
Terminals: The speaker
level inputs have binding posts that will accept bare wire up to 12
gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, and single banana plugs.
