Eclipse SW8000

The Eclipse SW8000 subwoofer series uses many technologies to help provide great transient response, long excursion and extended low frequency response. With extra venting this subwoofer can be powered for simply adding a balanced low end or creating a rocking bass system. The cone uses airified paper formed using a special process in which air is mixed in with slurried paper. This lightens the cone by 25% while maintaining its strength and the dampening capabilities of paper. A progressive “S” surround works to keep the cone moving straight up and down thus eliminating extra movements that add distortion. For more visit or call (800) 233-2216. In canada visit
