even frequency response.

cabinet, expert designed to minimize standing waves and deliver deeper, tighter
bass response. The enclosure features two rear-firing ports for improved
efficiency and bigger bass output.
RCA/LFE Input: The powered sub has gold plated left & right RCA
line-level inputs for use with receivers having a subwoofer or stereo preamp
output that do not contain their own low-pass crossover. The left channel RCA
input doubles as the LFE input, if your receiver has an LFE output and a
built-in low-pass crossover.

tailor volume, crossover frequency. and phase adjustment.

rear-panel rotary volume control to adjust the volume of the subwoofer
relative to the other speakers in the system.

variable low-pass filter, adjustable from 50-150 Hz.
- Phase Adjustment: The subwoofer's phase adjustment
allows you to adjust the subwoofer's phase between 0°

Audio's SX series speaker line-up and other brands of speakers, adding deep and
rich bass extension to your movies and music soundtracks.
Placement Options: The powered subwoofer can be placed almost anywhere
in the room as bass sound is largely non-directional. For best results, place
the subwoofer on the same side of the room as your front speakers. Corner
placement will increase the powered subwoofer's output.

includes four spiked feet for added stability on your carpeted floors. The
spiked feet are adjustable, in case you have uneven floors. The spiked feet add
1.25" to the height of the powered sub. The powered subwoofer can be used with
or without the four spiked feet, in case you have tile or hardwood floors.
