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.
While a powered subwoofer is required to reproduce the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) channel, they are often tasked with reproducing the lowest frequencies for all channels. Not only does this improve performance in the low end, it also helps smaller speakers perform at their best since they are left to only tackle the mid and high frequencies.
Level TWO and THREE are best for dedicated theaters and large rooms. The Sub-80 Low Profile subwoofer is outstanding in areas where the subwoofer needs to be tucked out of the way or hidden. And if aesthetics dictate the subwoofer must be installed in a wall, your best bet at this price point is our unique HDX In-Wall Powered Subwoofer.
