Triad Speakers just released the InWall Bronze/4 SlimSub, an in-wall subwoofer utilizing a long-throw 10-inch aluminum driver in a narrow enclosure with a flat grill that mounts flush to wall. Measuring 3-15/16 inches deep to fit into a standard 4-inch deep wall cutout, the flat grill, flush mount design of the SlimSub represents an aesthetical improvement over the model it replaces, the InWall Bronze/4 Sub, which protruded several inches from the wall.
Triad says the SlimSub delivers deep bass at high volumes, achieving a maximum output of 109 dB from 40-80 Hz with bass extension of -6dB at 25 Hz. This performance also represents an improvement over the previous model; in fact it rivals that of the company’s larger, 6-inch deep InWall Bronze/6 model.
According to Triad Speakers President Larry Pexton, the company achieved such rich performance by finely-tuning the sealed enclosure to match the excursion of the proprietary long-throw 10-inch aluminum driver employed. Triad engineers also integrated a round steel back-plate that serves to replace the thick MDF behind the driver, capturing more air volume to accommodate the lengthy throw of the driver.
The SlimSub fits into the same cut-out (size “V”) as the company’s other in-wall subs, making it ideal for retrofit opportunities. To further blend with the decor of most any home, the SlimSub incorporates all 3 types of Triad’s Acoustimesh grill (wide, narrow and frameless) which the company can custom paint-match at the factory.
