at higher volume levels.
High-Gloss Finish: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered
subwoofer is available in a high-gloss black (with black cloth grille) or
high-gloss white finish (with silver cloth grille). The black and white

subwoofer On and Off automatically by signal detection.
RCA Input: The powered subwoofer 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.
