8" DOWN FIRING POWERED SUBWOOFER
Powered subwoofers are integral to any complete audio/video system, particularly in home theater. Regular speakers are not designed to handle those low frequency effects that pull you into an action-packed scene. Our OSD PS8 is an 8-inch powered sub that's perfect for smaller rooms where space can be at a premium. The compact but powerful sub includes level controls and both speaker and line inputs and outputs. It also features variable crossover from 50 Hz to 180 Hz and a phase reverse switch. You can't beat it for the price so if you haven't added a subwoofer to your home theater yet, now is the time!
What is a down-firing subwoofer?
On a down-firing design, the speaker is mounted at the bottom of the cabinet and (you guessed it!) fires down into the floor. This may seem odd but this design typically gives you better, more precise distribution than front-firing subwoofers. Down-firing subs work best when firing into hard wood floors or hard surfaces so if your room is carpeted, cut a piece of wood and place it directly under the subwoofers feet.
