BasX: The Foundation of a Superb Audio System

The goal of putting together an exceptional audio system is to enrich your life with outstanding sound. It’s all about the music and the cinematic experience. It isn’t about spending a lot of money, solid gold knobs, or jewel encrusted remote controls; and you don’t need all sorts of complicated features you’re never going to use. The key to building a great home audio system is to use well-designed components with excellent technical performance and superb sound quality. Every Emotiva BasX component has been designed from the ground up to be part of an excellent home audio system. They incorporate the latest cutting edge technology and all of the features you’ll need to give you the best possible listening experience.

Why is BasX so special?

As a leading manufacturer of home audio equipment, we’ve noticed that a lot of people still don’t have high-quality audio in their lives. Some folks don’t have the budget to buy complex equipment, while others don’t have the time to spend trying to figure out how to use it – and that’s exactly why we developed our new Emotiva BasX products. Our BasX components combine great sound quality, a carefully chosen set of genuinely useful and easy to use features, rock solid performance, and simple yet elegant design.

The resulting components offer a combination you just can’t find anywhere else – great sound, ease of use, and great value. All of the components in our new BasX line are priced to be within reach of every music lover. You don’t need to be rich to afford them, and you don’t need to be an engineer to figure out how to use them. They’re carefully crafted to give you many years of reliable and trouble-free service, and they’ll look great in your living room or in your equipment rack.

You can build a complete music system or home theater system out of our BasX components that will give you a true audiophile listening and cinematic viewing experience. Try adding one or two BasX components to round out your existing system. The path to great audio doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.

BasX Subwoofers: Performance, Power, and Simplicity

Our Emotiva BasX™ Subwoofers were designed to reproduce the lowest frequencies in the audio spectrum accurately and with exceptionally low distortion - even at high listening levels. This means that our BasX Subwoofers can deliver the dynamics and raw power you need to make a modern movie soundtrack sound truly monumental, but still offer the precision and musicality you need to get the most from well recorded music. With our BasX Subwoofers, you don’t have to compromise; you really can have it all.

Our BasX Subwoofers come in three models: the S8, the S10, and the S12. Each model includes a heavy duty high excursion bass driver, powered by a high-efficiency Class D amplifier, and offers controls that allow you to configure it to work perfectly in conjunction with your main speakers. The various models offer identical controls and similar features; the main difference is that the larger models can produce higher output levels, and their frequency response extends even deeper.

The cabinets, which are quite compact for the performance they deliver, are built of heavy, acoustically inert HDF, and are covered in attractive yet durable textured vinyl. Sculpted removable grill cloths perfectly match the outline of the cabinets, and heavy duty integral feet provide support and minimize vibration. All controls and connections are conveniently located on the rear panel, which also provides cooling for the internal amplifiers.

BasX Subwoofers: The BasX S8

The BasX S8 subwoofer is the smallest BasX subwoofer, and is ideal if you need deep, clean, musical bass, and space is at a premium. The BasX uses a heavy-duty long-throw 8” driver and an efficient 150 watt Class D amplifier to deliver bass response down to 28 Hz.
