Features

Talking about Pioneer SW-8 specs we can fire up your favorite movie, then buckle up, sit back and let its powerful 100 watt amplifier (50 watt FTC power output) bring you right into the experience with room-shaking, earth-quaking realism. Its vented enclosure means extended deep, clean, bass performance. Phase and frequency controls allow for customized set-up. The frequency response is 38-150 Hz. The 8-inch driver makes a real difference.

Design and build

Like every subwoofer Pioneer build, the SW-8 is engineered to offer incredible design and amazing low-end frequency sound quality. Andrew Jones has designed speakers that run as high as $70,000, meaning you benefit from his high-end expertise and passion in this outstanding subwoofer for considerably less. If you are looking for an affordable, low-distortion way to get down deep into the low end of the audio spectrum, then this gadget is probably for you. We’re certain the new Pioneer SW-8 subwoofer will meet with your thunderous approval. Nothing in this price category gives you a deeper appreciation for quality bass than the SW-8 subwoofer from Pioneer. This has an automatic mode, unlike some of the others, so you can plug it in, and forget it. When some bass comes through, it will spring to life, and I think it adds plenty of life and depth to both movies and music.
