Want to add bass to your hot tub or spa with minimal hassle? Aquatic AV's AQ-SWA8-2 powered subwoofer system brings plenty of bass without taking up a whole lot of space. The coolest thing — this sub features a built-in amp, RCA inputs, and speaker outputs. All you need is speakers and a device that plays music, and you're ready to go.

Tucks away almost anywhere

With an all-in-one unit like this one, you won't have to find room for a separate sub, amp, and enclosure. That's always good when space is an issue, and a simpler wiring job is good anywhere, so it's a win-win. Whether it's mounted in a compartment, on a wall, or under a seat, this sub system will give you solid bass performance. And, like all Aquatic AV gear, it's designed to withstand moisture, heat, and everything else that comes with life around water.

Easy to install

Setup is simple. Just connect your speakers to the subwoofer, then connect your smartphone or MP3 player to the RCA inputs. This powered sub features an electronic crossover that's preset to optimize both subwoofer and speaker performance. And this sub works great with Aquatic AV's 2" and 3" spa speakers.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Aquatic AV AQ-SWA8-2 is a robust and durable marine powered subwoofer with a built-in 2-channel amplifier. The subwoofer features an 8" polypropylene driver in a ported enclosure, that carries an IPx4 waterproof rating for marine use, along with two amplified full-range speaker outputs. The built-in 144 watt amp powers the sub with 48 watts RMS and can provide 24 watts RMS to each of the speaker outputs (speakers sold separately).

RCA Inputs: The AQ-SWA8-2 includes a pair of RCA inputs on a 92" cable, for running audio playback devices like a CD player, media steamer, or smartphone into the subwoofer. The RCAs are attached to the sub's rear-panel along with a corresponding 4-position Aux Input Level switch for adjusting the input sensitivity, with options for: Off, 4V, 2V, and 400mV input sensitivity.

Wiring: All wiring for the AQ-SWA8-2 is provided in a 8" wiring harness that's hard-wired to the back of the subwoofer, along with the two RCA Aux input jacks. Power, ground, and the speaker outputs all terminate into a 12-pin Molex plug with matching 9.5" adapter harness. The subwoofer's output harness includes two sets of speaker output wires that jumper to a second set of pins on the Molex plug, allowing 4 speakers to be powered from the sub's two speaker output channels. A built-in crossover automatically balances the full-range speaker outputs with the tuned subwoofer for optimum performance. Note: If using the RCA Aux Input connectors, the input signal must be full-range if also using the speaker outputs.
