About the GoldenEar ForceField 3
Ultra-compact with a punch
Ultra-compact with a punch
GoldenEar's award-winning ForceField Series delivers powerful bass with a lineup of space-efficient subs that are easy to fit into your system. Like its big brother, the ForceField 3 produces a surprising amount of low-end output for its size, letting you enjoy accurate, hard-hitting bass even if you have limited room. Its long-throw 8" woofer is driven by the heavyweight power of a 1,000-watt RMS amplifier. And a down-firing 9" x 11" passive radiator further extends the sub's low frequencies to infrasonic levels, helping you feel the high-impact rumble of your favorite movies and video games.
Smooth and responsive
The ForceField 3 doesn't just hit hard — it also hits with precision. All the little details of the sub's construction add up. The driver's large motor and magnet assembly help it handle a ton of power for wide excursion with very low distortion. And the cabinet's non-paralell walls minimize internal reflections and add rigidity for more accurate bass and a unique look. Soft, vibration-absorbing feet do more than keep the sub in place and provide noise isolation. They also maintain just the right distance between the floor and the passive radiator to maximize low frequency output.
Simple setup and control
Adding the ForceField 3 to your system is easy with a dedicated LFE input plus speaker-level inputs and outputs. A continuously variable low-pass crossover gives you control over what frequencies the sub is responsible for when using the speaker-level inputs. If you're hooking up your main speakers through the speaker-level outputs, the fixed 150Hz high-pass crossover prevents you from damaging them with low frequencies. A volume dial makes adjustments quick and easy, letting you gently blend the sub into the rest of your system.
