Ultra-sleek, shallow subwoofer
No space for a big subwoofer enclosure? At only 3 1/8" (7.8 cm) deep, the XS-AW8 powered subwoofer fits in tight spaces in your vehicle for powerful bass sound throughout the car.
Optimally designed driver unit and low-resonance cast-aluminum enclosure
To reproduce powerful bass sound from its compact dimensions, the slim enclosure is paired with a unique rigid subwoofer diaphragm. The built-in amplifier also integrates a sturdy heat-sink to protect the driver unit and amp without introducing unwanted vibrations and harmonic distortion.
Supplied wired remote commander
A supplied wired remote commander allows you to adjust the subwoofer volume from the driver's seat.
High level input/Audio line input
What if you're using a factory radio that doesn't have pre-amp outputs? Simply connect the speaker outputs of your receiver to the high-level inputs. When pre-out audio signals are available from the receiver, connect them to the CH1(R) and CH2(L) terminals. Compatibility with up to 5-V pre-outs means you can utilize higher voltage audio input for a clean audio signal and less external noise.
Single-sided controls and terminals
Connections and amplifier controls are together on the same side for easy installation and tuning. The amplifier features a variable low-pass filter for simple connection to full-range sources, including the speaker-level inputs. A switch additionally allows you to customize the subwoofer phase output, to prevent any reduced bass response due to phase cancellation from other speakers in your system.
160-W peak (75-W RMS) output power
Fill your car with 160 W (75 W RMS) of clean, dynamic bass sound with our original power IC. The matched class A/B amp is designed for high power and natural, distortion-free sound even at high output levels.
