The Airmotiv XS8 is a premium full-featured powered subwoofer that was designed to sound great with both movie sound tracks and audiophile quality music content. The Airmotiv XS8 is an excellent way to extend the bass response of a smaller audio or home theater system to cover the last few critical octaves of bass with authority and finesse. The XS8 can deliver plenty of low bass to add that final touch of realism to a movie, while still offering the low distortion and precise control you need for accurate, superb sounding music reproduction. While the XS8 is the smallest member of our Airmotiv XS Subwoofer family, it can still deliver plenty of clean low bass to offer a truly impressive listening experience in installations where space is at a premium. The Airmotiv XS8 is also a great choice for dual-subwoofer setups.
