Speakercraft 8.2BAS Subwoofer
SpeakerCraft was formed thirty years ago by a group of dedicated individuals with a passion for sound. They've developed a brand based on the ever-expanding need for quality sound in the home. They proclaim their credentials today as the largest supplier of custom installed audio/video products in the world. They've manufactured and sold literally millions of loudspeakers. SpeakerCraft's goal is to develop innovative designs that utilise state-of-the-art components and materials. Their efforts earn numerous industry awards for products that leap forward to bring tomorrow's technology today. They were first to invent in-wall speaker installation systems that don't require installing brackets, and they have greatly improved the high frequency response of in-ceiling speakers by inventing WavePlane™. They were first to introduce pivoting tweeters; on some of the latest models, even the whole speaker pivots whilst still remaining flush with the ceiling. These innovations help reduce the placement concerns of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.
This speaker enhances the low frequency response of any in-ceiling or in-wall speaker system and is particularly effective in large rooms.
The BAS systems have built-in crossovers. This allows you to connect your in-ceiling or in-wall speakers to the BAS, which will direct the bass to the BAS and the higher frequencies to your other (satellite) speakers.
By selecting one of the three frequency settings, you can control the amount of bass that is sent to the BAS. For instance, if you have small speakers you would set the switch to a high frequency. This will allow your small speakers to play effortlessly, hence, sound better with less distortion. If you have larger speakers, you would set the switch to a low frequency, allowing your larger speakers to reproduce the mid bass and the BAS to play only the low, or sub-bass. This will produce tighter and deeper bass response.
