The Arsenal lineup of Subwoofers features 10 models, including the CS-AW6040, CS-AW6240, CS-AW7020, CS-AW7040, CS-AW7220, CS-AW7240, CS-AW8040, CS-AW8240, CS-AW8540, and CS-AW8520. These subwoofers range in class and size, from 10-15 inches, and feature two patent-pending technologies: the Multi-Mount Smart Trim Ring and the Dual Diametric Progressive Spider Woven Tinsel Lead as well as the patented Rapid-Fire Impedance selector terminal.

Sophisticated Design-Powerful and High-Grade
The Arsenal line of subwoofers appearance is aggressive and stylish, complete with sleek design and patent-pending Dual Diametric Progressive Spider Woven Tinsel Lead. A T3 Chassis (Thermal Transfer Technology) transfers heat away from the voice coil to the woofer’s aluminum basket by connecting the motor structure to the basket, using a layer of heat transfer silicon. Patent-pending Multi-Mount Smart Trim Ring creates a clean installation appearance by concealing the mounting screws. Patent-pending Rapid-Fire Impedance Selector Speaker Terminal changes the voice coil impedance with one easy motion. Switch between Parallel, Series or Bi-Amp configurations without any additional wiring. Aluminum material reduces resonation within the subwoofer structure, which creates strong and clear basic output with Die-Cast Vented Aluminum Basket.


Easy Placement
Each subwoofer in the Arsenal lineup also features easy wiring, easy switch between parallel/series/independent wiring, and protection circuit with fuse for extra protection against current overages that cause blown voice coils.

Better, Pure Sound
Advanced technologies are incorporated into this lineup to produce better sound, along with high performance and usability. Multi-directionally woven dampers correct balance of speaker, even with terminals concentrated on one side. Eco-friendly Hemp Fiber reduces unwanted mid- and high-frequencies in subwoofers–like a natural low pass filter. Internal loss is reduced within the speaker diaphragm for pure fidelity sound. Models CS-AW8240 and CS-AW8040 have a drive cone made of Paper + Hemp and Kevlar laminated Hemp fiber Cone. Models CSAW7240, CS-AW7220, CS-AW7040 and CS-AW7020 have a drive cone made of Paper +Hemp and Glass-Fiber laminated cone structure. In addition, efficient heat dissipation is caused by die-cast aluminum heat sink.
