Subwoofer sensationwith DSP

The most striking advance is the improvement of the subwoofer. Despite a two-thirds reduction in the size of its enclosure, the System 8's sub is the only subwoofer in the world to meet the exacting THX Ultra 2 standards with just one high-performance bass driver. A lengthy development process resulted in the extra long-throw woofer with magnetic shielding which is primarily responsible for the incredible performance of the S 8000 SW. The extremely efficient design allows 500 watts to produce very high levels free from distortion (e.g. 114 dB). Sophisiticated Digital Signal Processing (DSP) fine tunes the sound.


These three-way speakers have a wall-side mounted 130 mm woofer for the ground element alongside a 100 mm midrange driver and 25 mm tweeter on each side makes sure you have equal sound from the front and back. This particular setup ensures that only sound from the back is perceived. Real THX sound has never been so realistic.
