The subwoofer's EQ features a high-level input, a line-in input, a low-pass filter, and a 12-volt trigger. The subwoofer has an Intelligent Phase Control (IPC) function, which ensures a seamless blend of the subwoofer with other speakers in the room. You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer by 45-degree increments.

The Descend DN12 is one of the most powerful subwoofers on the market. With triple the bass-producing surface area of a traditional 15-inch ported subwoofer, the DN12 plays as loudly as two 18-inch ported subwoofers. The DN12 also eliminates port noise distortion for crystal clear bass.
