GoldenEar’s new SuperSub X is a smaller version of the company’s award-winning SuperSub XXL that also incorporates GoldenEar’s patented Dual-Plane Inertially Balanced Technology. This force-cancelling inertial balancing is said to preserve, conserve, and focus all the energy produced by the transducers in order to more effectively move the air in the room, rather than vibrating and shaking the cabinet. Also, because there are four radiating surfaces that are separated in space, the driver-to-room coupling and bass response is distributed much more smoothly.
The SuperSub X, which is now shipping and has an SRP of $1,249 each, is housed in a beautifully styled, luxuriously finished, ultra-compact gloss piano black lacquer cabinet (basically, just a 12½-inch cube!), which contains two long-throw 8-inch drivers, two 10½ x 9½-inch quadratic planar infrasonic radiators, a 1,400-watt ForceField Digital Amplifier, and a 56-bit DSP device, controlling multiple performance parameters. There is also a precision level control, a 12 dB/octave low-pass control continuously variable from 40-200Hz for two stereo RCA inputs, and a switch to select the direct-coupled, unfiltered LFE input. Overall frequency response is 12-200Hz.
