Versa Sub
Versatile Design!  Performance, style, and space-saving versatility converge in a unique subwoofer that works in almost any room. Place on-wall, in-wall, behind your acoustically transparent screen, under a bed, on top of a built-in, under/behind furniture or even in-furniture. Our new VERSATM subwoofer satisfies both your acoustic and aesthetic demands.
 
The key to a powerful subwoofer installed against a wall or piece of furniture is minimizing the amount of vibration transfer to the wall or furniture itself. The Versa Sub accomplishes this with a sturdy self-enclosed cabinet, and the use of two active, low profile yet long-throw 10" woofers. One 10" woofer is visible and the second 10" woofer is mounted inside the cabinet in such as way as to create an isobaric (constant pressure) chamber.
 
Choose between two ICEPowerTM based digital amplifiers (included in the price). The SDA-200 is ideal for most situations and most rooms. Step up to the SDA-500 for greater dynamic "head room".

Please note that this design, while more expensive than our Level TWO Subwoofer, does not produce any more output or lower frequency extension.  When you have the space, we will always recommend the Level TWO or Level THREE Powered Subwoofer.  But when you need to hide it away, and only a flat cabinet will work- there's no better solution than the Versa Sub!

Powered subwoofers are uniquely designed to reproduce only the lowest frequencies in both movies and music-only applications. A good powered subwoofer dramatically improves the impact and emotion of what you hear. But not all powered subwoofers deliver on this promise.

The HTD Versa Powered Subwoofer delivers with performance you would otherwise only find in much more expensive brands. We never use particle board or faux vinyl coverings as found in so many of today's speakers. Instead, we build our hi-end components into solid MDF wood with furniture-grade finishes of real wood veneer or mid-gloss black lacquer. Each cabinet includes internal bracing and a front-firing port for easy room placement.

The SDA-200 and SDA-500 are digital subwoofer amplifiers built around an ICEpower® module designed by Bang and Olufsen and customized for our subwoofers. ICEpower® is designed for the finest in home audio sound and operates at over 80% efficiency. This keeps the amp nice and cool even during the most bass-heavy tracks and movie effects.

This subwoofer amplifier can be positioned either with your other equipment (recommended) or close to the subwoofer cabinet.  Using a subwoofer amplifier not permanently installed in the back of the subwoofer cabinet (as many "old-style" subwoofers do) offers several key benefits:
  • Air leaks around the built-in amp and its inputs/outputs, which can cause a buzzing or whistling noise, is a non-issue
  • Internal volume of the cabinet is not reduced by the installed amplifier allowing the cabinet to be as small as possible
  • You have the recommended option of placing the amplifier with your other equipment.  This allows the amplifier to be connected to your LFE (subwoofer) output on your home theater receiver using only a short, inexpensive shielded cable; regular speaker cable is run from the amp to the connection point on the bottom of the subwoofer cabinet.  This allows you to place the subwoofer exactly where you want without the need for running a 110V electrical cord to a nearby electrical outlet.
  • You still have the option of placing the subwoofer amplifier near the subwoofer cabinet for a more traditional installation using a long shielded cable from your home theater receiver. 
Please note that this design, while more expensive than our Level TWO Subwoofer, does not produce any more output or lower frequency extension.  When you have the space, we will always recommend the Level TWO or Level THREE Powered Subwoofer.  But when you need to hide it away, and only a flat cabinet will work- there's no solution better than the Versa Powered Subwoofer!
