Now you can enjoy deep, full bass without compromising your home décor. The Soundmatters SUBstage features a slender, stealth design that makes it exceptionally easy to hide in just about any room. Tuck it under a couch or an end table — even out of the way, the SUBstage delivers impressive low-frequency sound.

This elegantly compact powered subwoofer is versatile enough to fit into almost any home theater setup. Add it to a compatible television for better sound from TV shows and movies, or use it to round out a surround sound system. And if you're looking for more potent lows, you can "daisychain" multiple SUBstages together, giving you powerful bass even in larger rooms.

It a nice subwoofer too bad it looks like I got the last one!

Features

Overview: The single 6" subwoofer is a patented neodymium/sandwiched stainless steel design and fires upward. It is supplemented by two down firing radiators Soundmatters describes as a moving wall. The radiators are 6 inches square and are steel coated with rubber.

Linear Magnetic Drive Technology: The speaker in the SUBstage 100 uses patented Linear Magnetic Drive technology and ultra-powerful neodymium-sandwich magnets that allow them to go deeper, play louder and cleaner than otherwise possible.

Low-pass Crossover: The crossover control allows you to adjust the upper limit of the subwoofer's frequency response from 50 to 200 Hz. The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.

Phase Adjustment: The remote control allows you to adjust the phase of the subwoofer's output signal from 0° to 18 to optimize the sub's performance, given it's location and your listening position.

EQ: There is a +3dB boost centered at 70 Hz.

Auto Turn-on Function: The subwoofer will turn itself on automatically when an audio signal is present. If no signal is present, the unit will switch to standby mode.

Placement: Given its small size, the SUBstage 100 offers great placement flexibility. It can also be wall mounted with an optional bracket available from Soundmatters.

Multiple Subs: Using the input/output jacks on the bottom of the sub, you can easily daisy-chain multiple subs together to achieve louder bass levels or compensate for room acoustics.

Adjustable Feet: The four feet are adjustable to level the sub.

Controls

  • Level: rotary dial on the bottom of the sub
  • Crossover Point: continuously variable from 50-200 Hz
  • Phase: continuously variable from 0° to 180°
  • EQ: on/off
  • Power: when the master power switch is off the signal sensing auto turn-on circuit is disabled

Input and Output Notes

RCA: The single RCA jack can be used as an input or and output.

Mini-jack: The single 3.5mm mini-jack can be used as an input or and output.
