For potent, high-energy bass that's also controlled, dynamic, and musical, check out PSB's SubSeries HD8. PSB designed this subwoofer to complement high-end two-channel audio systems and home theater setups alike. And this surprisingly small sub takes up less than a cubic foot of space, so you get deep bass impact without the visual impact of a large enclosure.
Unique driver array pumps out heavy bass
This sub's excellent performance comes courtesy of its heavy, 8" woofer and dual 8" passive radiators. The woofers have an extremely long excursion, so they can displace a large amount of air to produce the deepest bass. The dual opposing radiators also help tune the cabinet, producing frequencies generally only achieved by much larger enclosures. A heavy cast-aluminum basket, oversized magnet structure, and large-diameter voice coil support the HD8 in churning out musically accurate low frequencies.
The brains behind the brawn
The HD8 uses an intelligent Class H amplifier with sophisticated circuitry to keep the drivers, enclosure, and electronics in a well-balanced system. It helps this sub produce controlled, quick sound, untainted by boom or bloat. PSB's "smart bass" monitoring system also helps it maintain accurate musicality at even the highest volumes and lowest frequencies. This circuitry also keeps the woofer from being dangerously overdriven or producing obvious distortion, without squashing the dynamic subtleties or compromising its thunderous impact during big action flicks.
Flexible connections for easy system integration
Line-level and speaker-level inputs let you connect this sub to just about any audio system, while volume, crossover, and phase controls help you fine-tune the bass to your liking. It also comes with rubber feet to prevent it from vibrating across the floor. The HD8 makes an excellent addition to PSB's Image, Imagine, and Synchrony family of speakers in either a stereo or home theater music setup.
