Product Description

Upgrade Your Audio

Go a bit up the ladder; add deep, low-frequency thrills to your music, movies, and video games with Audioengine’s S8 powered subwoofer. It makes the perfect companion for your Audioengine speaker system or a fantastic upgrade to any music system that needs some extra low-end kick. Audioengine S8 has an 8″ custom woofer and is small enough to place in a corner or hide behind furniture. Perfectly engineered to deliver excellent bass performance and its low, tight, and smooth bass will blend well with the other speakers in your system.

Custom Woofer

The S8 has a super-fast woofer designed for audio and home theater performance. Built with an anti-resonant steel frame and heavy-duty rubber speaker surround for accurate low end. The S8’s bottom-firing and front-ported design means you’ll hear quick, precise bass with low distortion, even at higher volume levels. Simply put, this is a tight, smooth, and natural-sounding little subwoofer. This subwoofer’s super-compact build allows for easy out-of-the-way placement behind the couch or under your computer desk, but it looks so good you’ll want to display out in the open.

Furniture-Grade Finish

Audioengine S8 is a real work of art. The S8’s custom down-firing 8″ woofer delivers tight, punchy bass that blends in seamlessly with the other speakers in your system. Cabinets are made of rock solid 1-inch thick, internally braced MDF to eliminate cabinet vibrations which mean distortion-free, accurate response.

Wireless-ready!

You can place the Audioengine S8 away from your powered speakers or surround sound AV receiver; the optional Audioengine W1 wireless audio adapter offers the ability to incorporate wireless bass in your home theater system. Audioengine S8 has a built-in AC outlet on the rear panel that’s perfect for powering these great-sounding wireless products.

High Power Amplifier

With lots of continuous class A/B power, the S8 internal amplifier has a dual-voltage switch and detachable power cord.

Easy Connections

Audioengine S8 has dual line-level inputs (1/8″ mini-jack and RCA connectors) on the rear panel, and this makes connectivity to all your gear easy. And all cables you’ll need are included.

Versatile yet Simple Controls

S8 has simple controls which include variable adjustable rear panel for Crossover, Phase and Subwoofer Volume which allows you to adjust the S8’s output easily and to blend with your speakers. Another unique feature is the auto-sleep standby feature that turns the S8 amplifier off when you’re not playing music.

Hear the Difference

Audioengine continues to set a new level of audio and aesthetic quality and S8 Powered Subwoofer is no exception to this. Even if you’re not an audio enthusiast, you’ll hear the difference, guaranteed.
