soundmatters' New SUBstage subwoofer Features Advanced Technology in a Diminutive Enclosure

soundmatters, inc. will soon ship the SUBstageTM subwoofer, featuring a radically thin footprint that complements current trends in flat panel television displays while providing deep, resonant bass response down to 35Hz.

Designed by audio legend and company founder Dr. Godehard Guenther to be hidden behind furniture, hung on a wall, or out on display, the SUBstage boasts a timeless, classic appearance that blends with any décor. The compact steel enclosure, which measures 8" x 16.7" x 3.75" (H/W/D), utilizes patent -pending flat -magic™ technology to create internal pressure so high that it couples the spiderless, dual neodymium magnet, 6" extreme -energyTM driver with two 6" x 6" "moving walls," effectively creating a single 14" piston.

The SUBstage is powered by a highly efficient, 100 -watt Class D amplifier. For additional output or to smooth out room anomalies, the SUBstage can be daisy -chained to create a bass board along a floor or wall, with every doubling of modules increasing the capacity by +6dB. The SUBstage's patented driver is magnetically shielded to allow its placement in direct proximity of a video or computer monitor.

"Flat is where it's at, at least as far as home entertainment is concerned," said Lee Adams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, soundmatters, inc. "The advent of flat panel sets is leading consumers to seek out similarly compact products that offer excellent performance without adding an intrusive, boxed -in feeling to a room.

"The SUBstage gives consumers as well as installers a truly stealth option that can be placed nearly anywhere in a room, without having to rearrange furniture or camouflage the enclosure with a plant or a lamp. Even when displayed out in the open, the SUBstage never detracts while filling the space with deep, resonant bass response."

The SUBstage (SRP: $329) will ship in October. An optional décor kit, including display pedestal will be available as well. (SRP: $49.)
