Definitive Technology Descend DN8 Features
The DN8's dual 8-inch passive bass radiators and 8" long-throw active woofer help produce powerful bass. The subwoofer is powered by a 500-watt Class-D amplifier. The subwoofer has a frequency response of 35-200 Hz, which makes it a suitable choice for home theater and music.
The DN8 is equipped with an adjustable volume control, ensuring the bass output matches the volume of the speakers. This powerful subwoofer also features a Low Pass Filter, which allows only the intended frequencies to pass through to the woofer. This means that its enormous power is directed at reproducing bass, while the rest of the speakers reproduce high frequencies and vocals. Furthermore, DN8 comes with a phase control, ensuring that its timing is precise enough to match the rest of the speakers.
The Descend DN8 High Performance 500 Watt Powered Subwoofer from Definitive Technology delivers powerful bass and dynamic imaging. Designed for home theater use, this subwoofer features an aluminum dome tweeter and an integrated powered subwoofer. It also features Intelligent Bass Control, which enhances sub bass performance and smooths the high-frequency response. For greater performance, the Descend DN8 High Performance 500 W Powered Subwoofer can be upgraded with optional A90 height modules.
