Few components add more to the home theater experience than a subwoofer. A subwoofer is designed to reproduce the lowest of audible frequencies and will give you that spine-tingling rumble effect that takes you out of reality and into the plot. The beauty of OSD Audio in-wall subs is that you'll experience that thunderous, room-filling bass without filling up floor space. An excellent in-wall subwoofer at an excellent price, the OSD-IWS10 is a 10-inch passive subwoofer with power handling up to 200 Watts. Installation is easy with our "easy in" mounting bracket that mounts to the sheet-rock after the cut-out hole has been made. The grille is also paintable to match your room decor and we include a cutout template that doubles as a paint shield.
- 10" Polypropylene Subwoofer
- Butyl Rubber Surround
- "Easy In" Mounting Bracket
- Integrated Rear Dust Shield
- Spray Paint-able Frame Grill
Because this is a passive speaker, it will require a subwoofer amplifier to power it. An ideal match to this subwoofer is our OSD SMP500, a dedicated subwoofer amplifier that features 400W RMS @ 4 ohms, which would allow you to power 2 of these subwoofers wired in parallel. This subwoofer amplifier offers a variable high cut filter 30Hz-150Hz; front panel knob, and choice of signal level Input or LFE (Low-Frequency Effects).

What's on your mind?
Jim • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I have studied hi-fi for many years and have found that the speaker's box is very important. Did you find that placing the speaker in a wall between the studs and top and bottom plates provided a suitable box? Did the subwoofer rattle the sheet rock or pop the nails? I have designed actual "sealed" boxes and installed between the studs and it really helped the speaker performance. I did not have any Theile/Small (T/S) parameters from the manufacturer to use in modeling speaker performance. Are T/S parameters available for all in-wall speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Jim, We could not agree with you more! A custom enclosure is very important, especially if you want more sound directed into the selected room versus out the back wall. These are actually excellent woofers at factory-direct pricing. Even if you add the cost of the custom enclosure, it is still a great value. I believe these subs are considered an infinite baffle so they can work in a number of different size applications. We do not have the Theile/Small parameters but will try an obtain them and add them to our features and specification on our site. Iwill try and email them to you as well. We would be interested in what design you come up with. Perhaps you could post some pictures for us. TL/MA

Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Ma, This item does not include free shipping. While many of our products do include free shipping, some are priced so low that we have to charge for shipping. CL/MA
Eric • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Project: Want to add 3 of these in a room with 6 in ceiling speakers 4 in wall and keep the existing tower speakers up front.. 12 to 14 speakers in all.. Plus the 3 in wall Subs.. Will1 large amp do this ..? Like 900 watts..? Or do the Subs need their own Amp.. If so How do 2 Amps one running the speakers the other running the Subs work together?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Eric: I am assuming you are planning on connecting all the speakers in the room to the same source which means a rather large room or overkill in a small room. My suggestion would be looking at our AMP200 for your tower speakers, our MX1260 (12 channel amp) for your in-ceiling and in-wall speakers and then a SMP250 Subwoofer Amplifier for powering the Subs. I would suggest four IW10S wired series parallel so the sub amp would see a 4 ohm load (versus three wired in parllel). Note the AMP200 (or AMP300) would be plenty for your Tower speakers and the MX1260 would alleviate worrying about impedance matching since you would have 12 discrete channels or six stereo zones with a choice of two universal buss sources or direct input at each channel. Please contact me directly for further assistance and clarification. We would love to take care of your other speaker needs and wiring if you have not made that decision. I can even furnish you with a wiring diagram if needed. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. TL
Joe • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Are T/S parameters available yet?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Joe: I have placed a second request for the Thiel/Small Parameters. Sorry for the delay. TL 1410
Raj • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Hi, Is this sub considered as an "infinite baffle" type? Thanks, Raj
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PMHi Raj, This sub is an infinite baffle, so it is adaptable to most in-wall applications. We recommend reinforcing the wall behind the sub if possible. The wall behind the subwoofer will receive more pressure and more bass than the front wall. New construction allows you to build an enclosure utilizing the studs. With retrofit construction, you may need to reinforce with more fiber fill than normal. CL/MA 1417
