Subwoofers in a tower cabinet


Can anyone recommend a modest subwoofer that comes in more of a tower cabinet? (rather than cube) Something tall and narrow I'm thinking.

Re: Subwoofers in a tower cabinet


There aren't many commercial subwoofers that fit this criteria. The only ones I can think of, are the SVS Cylinder subs.

If you're interested in DIY however, you can actually take advantage of a "tower" shape to make a transmission line tuning.

If your after tall and narrow,VAF (Adelaide)have just released a Platform Sub which looks like a coffee table but can be used upright.I just go a pair yesterday but being new to subs I have a lot of tinkering to do.They are 350 watt.

Apologies, I passed right over the 'modest" qualifier.

Re: Subwoofers in a tower cabinet


If you were willing to DIY you could build my Tower Sub for roughly $200-$250. Should blow the doors off of similarly priced commercial offerings. http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...d-w8-740p.html Beefy 8" driver, 240W rms plate amp, simulated anechoic -3dB point of 29Hz -- "usefull response" in-room to 20Hz, easy. Cross at 100Hz or below.
