GoldenEar’s compact 4-driver SuperSubs have landed in the UK. The new SuperSub X and XXL subwoofers are surprisingly potent for their size, which makes them easy to accommodate.

The impressive output from these Class D amp-driven subs comes by exploiting a patented dual-plane ‘inertially-balanced’ driver and sub-bass radiator topology. GoldenEar’s bijou bass engines will generate fast and fulsome low frequencies from beautifully unobtrusive gloss black cabinets.

Each model features two active drivers separated horizontally and configured with two passive radiators separated vertically in a balanced configuration designed to deliver a more even response in-room.

At under 14-inches cubed, the ultra-compact SuperSub X uses a 1400 watt Class D amplifier to power twin 8-inch ultra-long-throw active drivers, supported by two 10.5-inch x 9.5-inch planar infrasonic radiators.

Coming in at under 20-inches cubed, the compact SuperSub XXL system deploys a 1600 watt Class D amplifier to drive twin 12-inch ultra-long-throw active transducers supported by two vertically-opposed 15-inch x 13-inch planar infrasonic radiators.

Based on technology originally developed for the GoldenEar Triton One tower speakers, the SuperSubs' electronics packages feature discrete multi-band limiting and phase-perfect equalisation with a strong focus on keeping latency to an absolute minimum.

Inputs include a direct-coupled, unfiltered LFE input for home theatre and stereo inputs with low-pass for two-channel setups.

Each SuperSub is available in a gloss black finish.

GoldenEar SuperSub X (£1450) and SuperSub XXL (£2300) are available from June 2018.
