SuperSub Series Overview

SuperSub Series SubwoofersThe new SuperSub™ Series subwoofers are ultra-high-performance yet amazingly compact subwoofers that incorporate many recently developed unique and advanced technologies and components. The goal was to create beautifully styled, finely finished, reasonably sized subwoofers that could generate very low frequency pressure waves of extremely high amplitude, while delivering accurate and precise low frequency performance that is both highly impactful and extremely musical.

In order to achieve this, we have incorporated a unique, patented* 360 degree dual-plane inertially-balanced driver and sub-bass radiator topology, combined with a very advanced electronics package. With two active drivers separated horizontally in space, as well as two passive radiators separated vertically, the driver-to-room coupling is distributed much more smoothly, for in-room bass performance that can’t typically be achieved with a single subwoofer. 

The electronics packages that drive the SuperSubs' fully balanced array are a 1600 watt (XXL) and 1400 watt (X) Class D Digital amplifiers whose design is based on the technology originally developed for the GoldenEar Triton One tower. Features include: Discrete multi-band limiting, phase-perfect equalization, fully balanced and advanced reconstruction filters and a strong focus on keeping latency to an absolute minimum. Input facilities include a direct-coupled, unfiltered LFE input for home theater, or stereo Left/Right low level inputs with low-pass for two-channel setups. Sonically, the result of all this technology is rock-solid bass response that is both exceptionally fast and tuneful for music and extraordinarily deep and powerful, in order to effortlessly reproduce the most extreme movie sound effects.

SuperSub XXL

Housed within the gorgeous piano gloss black enclosure are two horizontally-opposed 12˝ ultra-long-throw active drivers and two vertically-opposed 15˝ x 13˝ planar infrasonic radiators, driven by a 1600 watt Class D Digital amplifier. This dual-plane, patented* dynamic inertial-balancing preserves and focuses all the energy produced by the transducers in order to more effectively move the air in the room, rather than wasting energy moving the box. It also enables you to hear all the fine subtle details in your recordings. The benefit is a new achievement in state-of-the-art subwoofer performance that, not only “rocks the house”, as Big Picture Big Sound’s Chris Boylan raved, but is also, “strong, pure and controlled” as Sound&Vision magazine’s Mark Fleischman wrote. With two active drivers separated horizontally in space, as well as two passive radiators separated vertically, the driver to-room coupling is distributed much more smoothly, for in-room bass performance that can’t typically be achieved with a single subwoofer.

SuperSub X

Like the SuperSub XXL, the ultra-compact SuperSub X (just a little bigger than a 12-1/2" cube) utilizes the same dual-plane, patented* inertially-balanced driver array, but instead employs two horizontally-opposed 8˝ ultra-long-throw active drivers and two vertically-opposed 10-1/2˝ x 9-1/2˝ planar infrasonic radiators, driven by a 1400 watt Class D Digital amplifier. "Simply unbelieveable" raved the press about it's stunning output after their first audition. Click here to read the Brochure.

SuperSub XXL System

SuperSub Series Recommended System Components

The SuperSub XXL and SuperSub X are a spectacular addition to any music and/or home theater system. The SuperSub subwoofers can be used as the primary low frequency player in a mains plus sub system when used with the GoldenEar non-powered models (Triton Five, Triton Seven, Aons, SuperSats and 3D Array soundbars) and also as a movie effects player for systems based on our powered Triton Towers (Triton One, Triton Two and Triton Three). Adding a SuperSub to a powered Triton based system for LFE channel reproduction can be used either: 1) In addition to the powered subwoofers in the Triton towers to maximize in-room bass smoothness, or 2) Instead of using the Tower's subwoofers for LFE to maximize playing ceiling and dynamic range. And of course even better yet would be two SuperSubs in any of the possible systems. See the list of popular system options below.

GoldenEar engineers voice all of our speakers to the same high standards, perfectly complementing and matching each other in order to give you the greatest flexibility in creating your system, so you can mix and match and always achieve perfect results!
