Product code: NERO-DUALX8
Our Nero Dual X8 is a dynamic powered subwoofer that renders amazing low-frequency sound effects for home theaters, media rooms and high-end listening spaces. Operating with 300 Watts of dynamic power, the Dual X8 is a robust stand-alone subwoofer with a unique dual configuration that includes one 8” active woofer and one 8” passive woofer. The active subwoofer is self contained and uses the sub’s amplifier to reproduce sound while the passive sub draws power from an external amp or receiver. This delicate balance of internal and external power relieves your main speakers from having to produce low-frequency sound, allowing them to focus on mid-range and highs. The result is optimal performance with minimal distortion, so you’ll experience action scenes that feel real and soundtracks with unbridled emotion and clarity. A great addition to any home theater system, the Nero Dual X8 sub also includes a furniture-quality solid cabinet with a glossy piano black finish.
Highly Energy-efficient Amplifier Technology
The Nero Dual X8 powered subwoofer incorporates advanced digital amplifier technology that maximizes performance but, unlike other powered subs that run unnervingly hot, the Dual X8 generates very little heat. In standby mode, this powerful dual-woofer sub consumes less than 0.5 Watts, making it one of the most energy-efficient subs on the market.
An array of rear-mounted controls allows you to dial in just the right amount of bass for what you’re streaming or playing, whether it’s an action adventure film or a classic jazz vinyl. The crossover control allows you to adjust the subwoofer’s frequency outputs while a phase switch lets you set the phase of the woofer from 0-180°. The Dual X8 also includes signal sensing, so when auto signal sense is selected, the subwoofer will automatically switch to a power-saving standby mode. Power will turn on when a signal is detected through the input jacks, saving even more energy.
Gold-plated Inputs for Sonic Purity
Our Nero Dual X8 also includes gold-plated inputs for the highest-quality sound transfer and maximum sonic purity.
Answer three of three is as follows; The official spec for the NERO Dual X8 shows the power rating at 150 Watts RMS and 300 Watts Peak or Dynamic Rating.
There are advantages toa well Designed Passive Radiator Subwoofer. The active speaker works with the Passive Radiator acting as a second speaker making the Active speaker work more efficient. It also allows the speaker cabinet to be smaller but still has the same sonic output. 20 Hz is pretty good for an 8" Subwoofer but only obtainable when the passive radiator is part of the equation. The NERODual X8 Sub is a brand new model for us and only available in the gloss finish. Check out the Trevoce Series Subwoofers feature one Active and two Passive radiators for an even more significant effect. Currently, we are shipping the triple 12 and 10-inch versions with a Triple 8 in the works. They feature a unique Faux Leather finish. I think the NERO Dual X8 offers the most Value/Performance for your application.
The NERO Dual X8 has a single Front Firing 8inch woofer that is active (connected to the internal amplifier) which does have a black grill that covers the whole front panel of the sub (you can see on a couple of images the plugs where the grille attaches to the box). The 8" passive radiator is the down-firing driver that has no magnet and does not connect to anything. I will request adding an image showing the Grill. Thanks for the heads up.
