JBL SUB80P subwoofer has got “closed-box” acoustic design, which, according to the developers’ idea, should make it more musical in comparison with its analogues. Uniform distribution of sound in 360º will be provided by the new product due to the downward-facing bass driver. In turn, it will provide greater independence of sound from the location of the subwoofer in the room.
8-inch driver receives the signal from a Class D amplifier and its RMS power is 200 W. The dynamic power – is twice as much. The issue of placing a subwoofer in the room is facilitated by the JBL SUB80P’s built-in 2.4 GHz wireless receiver.
“The SUB80P is a fantastic way to add extended bass response to any system and it comes with incredible ease of connectivity and complete placement flexibility,” said Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, HARMAN Luxury Audio.
The small wireless signal transmitter will be easy to hide somewhere near the output jacks of audio equipment or behind the TV. The transmitter is powered by a 12V AC adapter, and the signal is connected to the source via a pair of RCA jacks. Besides, the transmitter has a 3.5mm 12V trigger input as an alternative to automatic switching on.
On the rear panel of the subwoofer there is a level control, switches for crossover override, phase and auto power on. The novelty received a strict neutral design in glossy black color.
The JBL SUB80P Active Wireless Subwoofer is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2022. In the U.S, the SUB80P will cost $600.
