Powered Subwoofer: Equipped with an 8" polyfiber woofer and a 50W
(RMS)/100W (Peak) class D amplifier, the Jamo Studio 8 Series S 808 SUB delivers
dynamic, powerful bass in any listening environment, from full cinema surround
systems to critical two-channel listening.
Bottom Mounted Amplifier: The high powered class D amplifier and input
panel is mounted on the bottom of the subwoofer cabinet, making for a clean,
unobtrusive look in any orientation. A 90-degree AC power cord and 90-degree mono-RCA cable are included for exceptional space
Note: The included rubber feet are required to provide enough space to
route the AC power and mono-RCA cable to the bottom-mounted AC input and
Ultra-Slim Enclosure with Down-Firing Slot Port: The S 808
SUB is specifically designed and engineered with a down-firing slot port to
provide exceptional output and deep, accurate bass in almost any application
despite it's ultra-slim cabinet.
Wood Accents & Woven Cloth Grille: Wood
accents give the subwoofer cabinet a handcrafted, natural look. The Jamo S 808 SUB comes with a large woven
linen cloth grille with heavy texture which finishes off the powered subwoofer's
Bottom Mounted Controls: The level control, low pass
crossover, and phase control allow you to blend the powered subwoofer's
low-frequency tones with your system's other speakers, as well as establish the
ideal level of bass. These controls are found on the bottom of the powered sub.
- Level Control: The level control adjusts the
subwoofer's volume relative to the rest of your home audio system. After the
sub's level control has been set, the volume control of your AV receiver
will be the volume control for both the Jamo powered subwoofer and your
- Low Pass Crossover: The variable low pass crossover is
adjustable from 40-120Hz. The crossover point chosen determines where low
bass frequencies are "handed-off" from your AV system's loudspeakers to the
Jamo powered subwoofer. Set the crossover point based on the size of your
systems' main left/right speakers.
If your AV receiver has an LFE output and built-in bass management, then set
the S 808 SUB's built-in crossover to "LFE", which bypasses the powered
- Phase Control: This control is used to acoustically
match the powered subwoofer's output to your main speakers. Select the
position either 0˚ or 180˚ in which the powered sub has more output at the
main listening position.
Bottom Mounted Mono-RCA/LFE Input: There is a bottom mounted mono-RCA
input that can be used for a line-level or LFE signal. If you are using an AV
Receiver with an LFE output, along with built-in bass management and subwoofer
control, then set the S 808 SUB's built-in low pass crossover to "LFE", which
bypasses the subwoofer's low pass crossover. If your AV receiver only has a
line-level output, then you will need to adjust the S 808 SUB's built-in low
pass crossover from 40-120Hz, based on the size of your front loudspeakers (a
mono-to-stereo RCA adapter maybe required in this scenario).
Auto Power On/Off: The Jamo powered subwoofer will
automatically turn On when it senses an audio signal. It will automatically go
into "Standby mode" after 15-20 minutes with no audio signal. You can also
choose to turn the powered sub On or Off manually from the rear-switch on the
Mounting Options: The Jamo Studio 8 Series S 808 SUB utilizes an
ultra-slim cabinet for exceptional placement flexibility and orientation
flexibility - front firing against a wall or side firing next to a media console
or cabinet. It can even be placed on its back and hidden underneath a sofa or
chair, so the woofer is top firing. Four self-adhesive rubber feet are included
to provide a non-slip surface and to isolate the powered subwoofer from the
floor, as well as provide space for the AC power cord and subwoofer cable to
plug into the bottom of the enclosure.
- Side Firing Dimensions: 7.0" (w) x 18.0625" (h) x 14.0" (d)
- Front Firing Dimensions: 14.0" (w) x 18.0625" (h) x 7.0" (d)
- Top Firing Dimensions: 17.625" (w) x 7.5" (h) x 14.0" (d)
Note: For optimum performance, place your subwoofer in a corner of the
room on the same wall as your front channel speakers. Please note that room
placement can have a dramatic effect on the performance of your powered
subwoofer. Corner placement, as suggested above, will increase the amount of
bass output, while placing the subwoofer along the middle of a wall, or out in
the room will decrease the amount of bass output.
