More details on the Denon DSW-1H
Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The Denon DSW-1H wireless powered sub makes a great addition to the Denon DHT-S716H active soundbar, HEOS enabled powered speakers (such as the HEOS 1 / HEOS 3 / HEOS 5 / HEOS 7), and other HEOS enabled components (such as the HEOS Amp / HEOS Link ) - all sold separately. The DSW-1H features two custom-made, front-firing 5.25" woofers in combination with sophisticated class D amplification (70 watts) that deliver clear, room-filling bass. Proprietary DSP algorithms provide optimized low frequency response across the entire dynamic range. The DSW-1H utilizes a low resonance cabinet with an optimized tuned rear-firing port for deeper, cleaner bass.

- 3.1ch: Create a 3.1ch speaker system when you pair the DSW-1H wireless powered subwoofer with Denon's DHT-S716H active soundbar speaker.
- 5.1ch: Build a 5.1ch home theater system when you combine the DSW-1H wireless powered sub, the Denon DHT-S716H active soundbar speaker, and a pair of HEOS wireless powered speakers (HEOS 1 / HEOS 3 / HEOS 5 / HEOS 7) for the rear channels.
