Features

Dynamic Power: The XW-500d's amplifier is rated at 500 watts RMS and 1200 watts dynamic power. The dynamic power rating indicates the power the amplifier will deliver to the woofer under normal operating conditions for a subwoofer. While the RMS power rating indicates power available on a continuous, long-term basis, subwoofers rely on large, short-term peaks of power to to support the wide dynamics required by today's digital music formats and movie soundtracks. Therefore the dynamic power rating can be used as an indication of a subwoofer's real-world performance.

DCS Digital User-Interface: With the exception of the master power switch, all functions are adjusted using the DCS (Digitally Controlled Subwoofer) digital user-interface on the top of the sub:

  • Volume: adjust the subwoofer volume relative to the rest of the system
  • Recall Settings: recall one of three user defined settings; Movie, Music, and Night
  • EQ Mode: choose between Flat, Punch (emphasizing the 60 Hz region), and Depth (boosts the 30 Hz region)
  • Lowpass: adjust the crossover from 40 Hz to 120 Hz in 5 Hz steps; the crossover can also be bypassed, useful for an LFE signal that's already crossed over
  • Phase: adjust the phase from 0° to 180° in 10° steps
  • Brightness: set the display brightness to one of four settings
  • Power: choose Auto On or Always On; the Auto-On Circuit turns the amplifier on when an audio signal is detected and off after approximately 20 minutes with no input signal; the master power switch on the back panel overrides this setting
  • Keypad Lock: the keypad can be locked to prevent any accidental changes

IR Sensor: An infrared remote sensor on the rear panel allows integration with universal control systems. The XW-500d IR codes can be found on Klipsch's web site.

Input Note

Preamp Level Input: The left and right line-level jacks are used to connect the subwoofer to a pre-amp, signal processor, line-level crossover, or receiver with pre-amp level outputs. Use the left input when connecting to a single LFE output.
