The BASS-line series is our idea of an entry level subwoofer. These minimalistic subwoofers are built with the same high-grade components that our larger Platform series subwoofers use, but have been stripped down to leave only the essential core components. The remaining parts of these subwoofers are of the same high-quality materials as the rest of our lineup. These subwoofers offer huge output and unexpectedly superb sound quality. For low power applications or limited budgets, these subwoofers will not be beaten.

BASS-line subwoofers are available rated for 600 -750 watts rms power handling and are hand built in the USA with high quality 3″ flatwound voice coils, stitched heavy gauge leadwires, push terminals or direct connect leads, and our heavy duty cone.

These subwoofers come standard with single 3 ohm voice coils, to offer the most compatibility without unnecessary additional components. The voice coil can be upgraded to a dual voice 1 or 2 ohm coil..

Power Handling Ratings:
Standard RMS Power Handling – 600 watts
W/ Optional Hi Performance Addition- 750 watts
Peak Power Handling – 1250 watts
SPL Burp Power – 1500 watts

Standard version features include:
  Single 6.7″ x 1″ Y35 ceramic slug
Black coated top and bottom plates
FEA optimized motor assembly
12 spoke aluminum cast frame – Black
Chrome push terminals (optional direct connect wiring)
  4 layer aluminum flatwound voice coil
Single 3 ohm impedance (optional Dual 1 or 2 ohm)
Single 8″ progressive roll poly-cotton spider
Sewn 3mm heavy duty leadwire
Kevlar impregnated pulp cone body
1.5″ wide roll rubberized foam surround

They are manufactured to the strictest standard, and guaranteed to last.
Hand built in the USA!
