No knobs, dials, or switches here! The SUB3030 uses a free app on your smartphone for set up, control, and room calibration.
ELAC broke the subwoofer mold with their original line of Debut Series subwoofers. Now, the Debut 2.0 SUB3030 offers even better performance and customization to deliver excellent bass from anywhere in your room.
Out of the box you'll notice that the SUB3030 doesn't have the usual assortment of knobs, switches, and adjustment options on its back panel. That's because it uses your smartphone's microphone along with sophisticated on-board software to deliver the most accurate bass possible.
Simply download the ELAC SubEQ app and let its powerful processing customize the subwoofer's settings for your room, wirelessly via Bluetooth. You'll enjoy visceral, ground-shaking bass from the sub's 12" woofer and 12" passive radiator, while its super-charged 500-watt RMS amplifier provides plenty of horsepower for your music and movies.
The magic behind the SUB3030 lies in how you set it up and control it. Everything is done from your device's touchscreen. The SubEQ app uses Bluetooth Low Energy, a wireless connection between your device and your sub that requires no pairing and no passcode.
The calibration process begins by capturing a near-field measurement of the subwoofer's bass output. Simply hold your phone or tablet within one foot of the sub and press "Analyze." The app then records what's coming out of the subwoofer, capturing sound before it's affected by its interaction with the room's reflective surfaces and other sound-muddying anomalies.
Then you'll do the same measuring process from your favorite listening position. The app's software compares the first measurement against the second, then automatically smooths out the EQ curve, delivering crisp, accurate bass to your ears. Level control and other audio adjustments are made through the app. You can even calibrate multiple SUB3030s independently in your system.

Average Customer Review(s):
Poor build quality, muddyi sound, set up app only connected on the first try. The subwoofer came with the base not completely installed, I had to tighten the screws myself.
This sub delivers more than enough grunt, and the bass it puts out is solid and muscular. It does a great job whether you're watching movies, series, or playing games. The sound isn't quite as deep or powerful as other subs I've owned, but is more than rich and detailed enough to increase the enjoyment of my movie nights. Android and iOS app gives you access to all the functionality you need, including software that lets you fine-tune the sound to your listening environment. Overall, I recommend this product. What are you waiting for, get it today, you will love it.
Pros: Great power and powerful bass, with an application to make adjustments.
Cons: There are others at lower price that will also work great.
Great sub. Clear clean low bass. A huge step up from a cheaper sub with the same power output.
Pros: Great sound App works great
Cons: May not be loud enough for really large rooms

Elac Sub Control 2.0 App: The Elac Debut 2.0 series SUB3030 powered subwoofer does away with traditional analog controls. Instead, the powered sub incorporates Elac's advanced digital signal processing (DSP) that is controlled from the Elac Sub Control 2.0 app on your Apple (iOS 9.2+) or Android (OS 5.0+) device, wirelessly over Bluetooth 4.0. From the app on your compatible smartphone or tablet device, you can control the Auto EQ, Parametric EQ, Crossover, Phase, Delay, Volume, & Sound Presets. You will need to pair your compatible Apple iOS or Android device with the Elac powered sub before using the app.
Note: There are no physical controls on the front or back of this powered subwoofer. The Elac Sub Control 2.0 app and a compatible Bluetooth 4.0 LE enabled Apple (iOS 9.2+) or Android (OS 5.0+) device is required for setup and operation of this powered sub.
500W BASH Tracking Amplifier: The Elac Debut 2.0 series SUB3030 utilizes a BASH tracking amplifier rated at 500W RMS and 1,000W Peak. Unlike conventional amplifiers, BASH amplifiers track the input signal and adjust the available supply voltage to a traditional Class AB amplifier. This makes the amplifier incredibly efficient, but also provides the on-demand power needed for dynamic movies and music.
12" High Excursion Woofer & Passive Radiator: A custom front-firing, high-excursion 12" doped paper cone woofer provides the quality and quantity of bass that is fundamental to accurately reproducing today's demanding movie soundtracks and music. The Elac SUB3030 powered sub also employs a down-firing 12" passive radiator to improve the transient response and increases the efficiency of the system.
Braced MDF Cabinet: The cabinet is made of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) with an internal horizontal brace to strengthen and stiffen the cabinet, helping minimize unwanted vibrations that can discolor music or movie content. The MDF outer walls of the cabinet are covered with a textured vinyl black finish. There is a metal grill on the front to protect the front-firing woofer.
LFE/RCA Input: The Elac Debut 2.0 series SUB3030 is fitted with a mono LFE/RCA input for connecting the powered subwoofer to your home theater AV receiver or integrated amplifier.
Auto Power On/Off: The SUB3030 powered subwoofer will detect when an audio signal is being sent to the amplifier and will power on. Also, to conserve energy, the powered subwoofer will power off after 15 minutes of no audio signal and inactivity. On back of the powered subwoofer is a LED that will illuminate blue to indicate that the powered sub is turned on; there will be no illumination when the subwoofer is turned off or in standby mode.
Spike Feet: The Elac Debut 2.0 series SUB3030 powered sub comes with 4 spike feet. The spikes screw into the bottom of the powered sub enclosure. The spike feet work great on carpeted flooring. You should place protective discs (not included) under the spikes, if you are placing the powered sub on hardwood or tile flooring (no rubber feet are included).
Placement: Proper subwoofer placement can take some trial and error. In many cases, the best position for the powered sub is in the front corner of the room. If placing the subwoofer in the corner creates an abnormal amount of bass, you can try moving the subwoofer to one of the side walls near the front of the room.
Elac Debut 2.0 Series: The Elac Debut 2.0 series family of loudspeakers consists of two floorstanding loudspeakers (DF52/DF62), two bookshelf loudspeakers (DB52/DB62), two center-channel loudspeakers (DC52/DC62), a Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker (DA42), and powered sub (SUB3010).
