Sunfire Dynamic Series Subwoofers Announced

Sunfire Dynamic Series Subwoofer

Sunfire Dynamic Series Subwoofer

Sunfire, a manufacturer of luxury home theater products for the custom and retail markets, announced their powerful, yet budget-friendly Dynamic Series of subwoofers.  Tuned for both low frequency Home Theater Effects and powerhouse musical bass lines these new subwoofers boast up to 600 Watts Peak (300 Wrms) Power.  The lineup will be introduced this month at CEDIA Expo at the Sunfire Booth.

The Sunfire Dynamic Series - 8", 10" and 12" Subwoofers, are the perfect blend of form and function and the ideal choice for systems where small size and high output are required.  Sunfire's new digital amplifier delivers from 400 to 600 Watts of cool running peak output in the three models, with unprecedented performance at this price point. Each subwoofer features a Sunfire-designed woofer and acrostically matched passive radiator – twice the speakers for twice the bass.  The DS family is also the first in the Sunfire line built around energy efficient Class-D amplification, dynamically adjusting the output of the subwoofer's power supply to suite the requirements of the incoming audio signal. Add a low-power standby mode with signal-sensing power on/off and you have a solid performer over time, while continuously variable phase, crossover and volume controls mean fast and precise setups.  An optional 2.4GHz wireless transmitter and receiver make "no-new-wires" possible, even in challenging environments. Up to 4 receivers and subwoofers are supported from a single transmitter.

"For the last fifteen years, Sunfire’s customers have been obsessed with performance," said Mark Weisenberg, Sunfire General Manager. "Our new Dynamic Series builds on our pedigree of subwoofer excellence and delivers unsurpassed bass-for-the-buck. Now more enthusiasts than ever will be able to enjoy the Sunfire experience in their homes."

Other products found in this price range simply focus on the quantity of output over a limited frequency range, limiting the quality of performance to only a few kinds of material. Today’s consumer watches and listens to a wide variety of content – TV, movies, music, games, etc. – using the same system, which demands both quality and quantity. Sunfire engineers designed these speakers with the company’s proprietary Frequency Filtration Design™ (FFD), preserving a spectral balance across the entire bass frequency range to deliver superior balance and definition PLUS high output no matter what source material is being used. In subwoofer terms, music demands definition over a wider range of bass frequencies, while movies are equalized for optimum performance at slightly different frequencies to accentuate the special effects— the Sunfire Dynamic Series achieves both.  Small rooms, big bass - no problem!

The Sunfire Dynamic Series is available in three sizes, the SDS-8 8" driver, at 32Hz-150Hz, with a peak power of 400W, the SDS-10  10" driver, at 30Hz-150Hz, with a peak of 500W and the SDS-12  12" driver, at 28 Hz-150Hz, at 600W peak power.  The SDS-8 lists for an MSRP of $350,, the SDS-10 for $450, the SDS-12 for $550 and the optional 2.4 GHz wireless kit for $150.  The speakers will be shown at CEDIA Expo September 23-26 at the Sunfire booth 1812 and will ship in October.

The are the best bang for the buck you can get. The people who say they have too much boom and are not fast enough… Whatever you are smoking, I want some. It is all in how you set it up. Awesome products. What I have found to be a terrible, semi expensive sub that is a ticking time bomb, is the Velodyne SPL-1200 Series II. Stay away from them.The plates only last a few years before detonation. Pay Velodyne another $275, they will “fix” it. Tick, tick, tick…

Really???? They are not boomy and they are fast? Really? Thats not what I have heard with my own 2 ears but that being said ,everyone has a different opinion and that is what makes us special people or something like that…….

I gotta say I have heard a few sunfire's in my day. I also was going to buy one a few years back and was told here on this site by many folks thatI should be looking eleswhere, not good subs.I didnt listen to anyone here and went and had a listen for myself. I was really looking forward to listening to the sunfire and when I did….it was terrible.I listened to 4 models and they were all loud alright but had no definition to them at all.It was as boomy and uncontrolled as I have ever heard.Just boom boom boom no tightness at all,I was blown away at how bad these subs sounded to my ears.Bob Carver has made some great amps and speakers over the years,I hope they have done better with these new subs as the ones I have heard would best be used as boat anchors……just sayin.

Looks interestin

I have never had the opportunity to listen to a sun fire sub, how do they sound? I know they are a great high end brand and I really hope these deliver as great as their specs becuase 1 or 2 of these may be my next subwoofer/s.

Love Sunfire, even in its budget line. I'm hoping these will be winners for them. They look interesting and fulla value.
