Sound Solutions is making good on its distribution deal with Wharfedale loudspeakers as it prepares to ship the brand's Jade Series subwoofers in the U.S. this month. The Jade 10 and Jade 8 subwoofers each feature dual drivers for powerful, articulate bass and offer a full range of adjustments via their remote controls to achieve optimum performance in any home theater or stereo music system and room.
Wharfedale’s Jade 10 subwoofer in piano black and Jade 8 subwoofer in vintage cherry.
The Jade 10 features dual 10-inch woofers and a built-in 500-watt amplifier, and the Jade 8 has dual 8-inch woofers and a built-in 350-watt amplifier. The subwoofers employ a dual-woofer arrangement in which the high-excursion, long-throw woofers are mounted opposite each other and mechanically reinforce each other’s motion, yielding powerful, articulate low-frequency response to 30Hz with greater output and efficiency. Like every Wharfedale loudspeaker, Jade Series subwoofers are designed and built completely in-house, from their drivers and internal amplifiers to their finished enclosures, available in Rosewood Cherry, Vintage Cherry, and Black Oak veneer to complement Wharfedale’s Jade Series loudspeakers and any home décor.
Wharfedale’s Jade Series subwoofers make it easy to dial in the best-possible performance in any home theater or music system, thanks to their supplied remote control that enables adjustment from the listening position or anywhere in the room. A "dimmable" front-panel LED screen facilitates precise tailoring of volume, continuously variable low-pass crossover point, crossover slope and phase to enable perfect integration with the main speakers and the acoustics of the listening room. Stereo and mono (LFE) line in and speaker-level inputs are provided.
In addition, the Jade 10 and Jade 8 offer a choice of modes for either maximum dynamics during movie viewing and music playback, or to adjust the subwoofers’ response for lower-volume late night listening.
The Wharfedale Jade 10 and Jade 8 subwoofers are currently available at suggested retail prices of $1,599 and $1,199 respectively.
