Features

You will find a plethora of interesting features in this subwoofer, such as an inbuilt amplifier, down-firing speaker, and internally based bass reflex enclosure. On top of that, this powerful subwoofer has 300 watts peak power and a frequency rate of 26 Hz-250 Hz. Concerning other Acoustic Audio PSW-8 specs, the sensitivity rate and impedance rate of the sub are 97db and 8-ohm respectively. The RMS and maximum rate of this subwoofer are 150 and 300 watts respectively. A high RMS rate means that this subwoofer will be able to run on your desired level for a long period of time without damaging itself. Which means you can watch the whole season of game of thrones in one night without having to worry about blowing your amplifier.

Design and build

Down-firing subwoofer means that the speaker is placed on the bottom of the enclosure. And thanks to the down-firing speaker, the bass gets distributed evenly in all the directions. However, this wooden down fire bass speaker does not come with a protective grill. Therefore, you have to be careful while unboxing the subwoofer, so that your fingers don’t puncture the woofer cone. The acoustic audio PSW-8 sub comes with an inbuilt digital drive amplifier which drives the sub to render clean, powerful and crisp bass sound. Moreover, this subwoofer relieves you of the duty of pushing buttons manually, as it includes an auto on/off switch.
