Sunfire Brings Invisible Bass to CEDIA Expo 2013 with In-Wall 8-Inch Subwoofer (29/8/2013)
Booth #1120, CEDIA Expo 2013
The new HRSIW8 utilizes Sunfire’s patented Stillbass™ anti-shake technology to provide 520W of stunning bass from an enclosure that literally disappears into the wall, creating a seamless home theater experience.
Sunfire®, a specialist in the design, manufacturing and marketing of luxury home theater audio products, is bringing invisible bass to CEDIA 2013 with the new Sunfire HRSIW8, an in-wall dual-driver 8” subwoofer that features the brand’s patented Stillbass™ anti-shake technology. The Stillbass technology, coupled with Sunfire’s trademark High Back-emf designed woofers, helps provide pounding audiophile-grade bass and room isolation from a subwoofer that easily retrofits into a standard 16” on-center stud bay. The subwoofer is on display at the Sunfire Booth #1120 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
According to Mitch Witten, Core Brands Product Marketing Director of Audio Segment, “The demand for high-quality hidden sound systems is growing rapidly, and Sunfire is committed to providing the best in-wall subwoofers with our patented StillBass technology that offers professional quality bass for every homeowner’s home theater or media room. Integrators now have an easy-to-install solution for theater-quality bass that doesn’t take up floor space, doesn’t require cutting any wall studs and can be painted to match any room’s decor. Setup is straightforward using Sunfire’s Digital amplifier platform, which includes a wide array of optional adjustments for maximum performance.”
The HRSIW8 features two custom-designed 8” long-throw woofers using ultra low mass fiberglass cones in a sealed cabinet that measures 12.2”W x 24.7”H x 3.75”D, and only requires a wall cutout of 10.6”W x 23.5”H. With six built-in dog-toggle style wall clamps it is a perfect solution for both retrofits and new construction jobs, easily fitting in any standard 16” on-center stud bay. A wire channel is provided on the rear of the enclosure to avoid pinching the wire between the enclosure and the back of the drywall inside the opening. Easily removable magnetic grilles and a cutout template for easy installation are provided.
The HRSIW8’s external rack-mount amplifier is an evolution of the Sunfire digital amplifier used in the company’s SDS subwoofer line. Using Sunfire’s Frequency Filtration Design (FFD) for high fidelity bass, the amp delivers 520W of power with near zero distortion. A wide range of filtering adjustments are included as well as DSP with room equalization and a remote control that provides one-touch access to preset equalizer modes.
The HRSIW8 has an MSRP of $1,700 and features a frequency response of 33Hz-150Hz, maximum output of 106dB, balanced and unbalanced line level inputs, gold plated speaker terminals and adjustable high-pass and low pass filters.
The continuing “Science of Sunfire” is the direct result of a design philosophy originally pioneered by Bob Carver that has become codified by the brand. This unique approach to design has resulted in amazingly compact high performance subwoofers that combine the best electronics and acoustics with specialized, premium materials to exemplify the mantra of “small form, high fidelity with high output and reliability”.
