Audioengine has announced its latest compact-powered subwoofer, the S6 for $299.
Measuring only 10-inches high and 8.7-inches wide, this subwoofer is great for use in small spaces and with compact audio systems, such as the Audioengine A1-MR Wireless Multiroom Home Music System. It can also be used as an add-on subwoofer for other branded compact audio systems that have compatible subwoofer connections.
We’ve used the Audioengine A2+ speakers for over two years at home on the desktop and the S6 was badly needed to fill out the bottom octaves.
The S6 incorporates a front-firing 6-inch driver in a sealed cabinet design that can pump out bass as low as 33Hz and features adjustable volume and crossover controls, as well as a switchable phase switch so you can match it with the rest of your system.
Tip: Although the S6 isn’t wireless out of the box, you can use it as a wireless subwoofer with the purchase of the Audioengine W3 Transmitter/Receiver Kit ($149).
