The Airmotiv SE8 Flex Subwoofer is an exceptionally flexible compact powered subwoofer that features a heavy-duty 8” downward-firing powered driver, coupled to an 8” forward-firing passive radiator, and powered by an efficient audiophile quality Class D amplifier. The SE8 can produce plenty of clean low bass to deliver the bottom octave of music with authority, or to shake the floor when the soundtrack of your favorite movie calls for it. The SE8 Flex Subwoofer offers both line level and speaker level inputs, as well as flexible internal crossover circuitry and controls, so it can be customized to work perfectly with a wide variety of different systems - hence the flex in the name! And, because the SE8 is also quite compact, it is the ideal solution for small to medium sized rooms.Less

Everything Starts With Great Drivers

8” heavy-duty long-throw subwoofer with motor assembly, NBR surround, and treated paper cone.

8” passive radiator, with rubber surround, steel frame, and treated paper cone.

Audiophile Quality Electronics

The efficient, audiophile quality, Class-D amplifier provides 200 watts RMS/400 watts peak power to drive the Airmotiv SE8 to satisfying listening levels.

An effective, transparent audio limiter ensures that the Airmotiv SE8 always sounds good, but is nearly impossible to overdrive.

The SE12 can be configured to remain on, to be switched on manually, or to automatically switch itself on when it senses music at its inputs.

Both speaker level and line-level inputs are included for maximum flexibility and compatibility with all types of systems.

Rear panel controls allow you to configure the Bass Level, High Pass Crossover Frequency, Low Pass Crossover Frequency, and Phase for a perfect match with the rest of your system.

Internal 2.1 channel precision line-level crossover for use with preamps, DACs, and other audio sources that don’t otherwise support a subwoofer - allowing you to add fully active bass management to systems that don’t already include it.

A Great Subwoofer Needs A Great Cabinet

A heavy, acoustically inert, internally braced MDF cabinet keeps distracting cabinet noises and vibration to an absolute minimum.

Integral feet, with non-slip decoupling pads, protect delicate floors, and ensure that your Airmotiv SE8 Sub will stay exactly where you want it.

The exterior of the Airmotiv SE8 is covered in attractive yet durable textured finish with a removable cloth covered grill.

The Airmotiv SE8 Flex Subwoofer is an exceptionally capable compact powered subwoofer that features a heavy-duty 8” downward-firing woofer coupled to a forward-firing passive radiator — driven by an efficient, cool-running 200 watt Class D amplifier. The Airmotiv SE8 Subwoofer delivers plenty of clean low bass to add authority to the lowest octaves of your favorite music, with enough raw power to shake the floor when a movie soundtrack calls for it. Compact enough to fit conveniently in a typical den or living room, the cabinet of the Airmotiv SE8 is covered in attractive and durable textured black vinyl, with all connections and controls located discreetly on the rear. The front baffle features a beautiful, removable sculpted fabric grille. 

In addition to excellent sound quality and a compact footprint, the Airmotiv SE8 features exceptionally versatile and flexible configuration options. The Airmotiv SE8 can connect to the LFE output on a home theater preamp/processor or AVR, line outputs on a preamp, or directly to the speaker outputs of an AVR or stereo receiver that doesn’t include a sub output. The Airmotiv SE8 also includes a built-in precision electronic crossover and can upgrade any stereo preamp or DAC to a fully capable 2.1 channel system. Rear panel controls for Level, Phase, Crossover Frequency, and Turn-On Mode allow you to configure it to work perfectly with the rest of your system.

Airmotiv Subwoofers If you want the absolute best in sound quality, no system is complete without a high-quality subwoofer. Emotiva Airmotiv Subwoofers are designed to sound great with both music and movies. They combine the raw power necessary to reproduce the sound of a rocket taking off, or the roar of a speeding locomotive, with the precision and finesse you need to hear the subtlest details in a complex bass line.
