Ultra-sleek, shallow subwoofer

No space for a big subwoofer enclosure? At only 3 1/8" (7.8cm) deep, the XS-AW8 powered subwoofer fits in tight spaces in your vehicle for powerful bass sound throughout the car.

Optimally Designed Driver

Optimally designed driver unit and low-resonance cast-aluminium enclosure

To reproduce powerful bass sound from its compact dimensions, the slim enclosure is paired with a unique rigid subwoofer diaphragm. The built-in amplifier also integrates a sturdy heat-sink to protect the driver unit and amp without introducing unwanted vibrations and harmonic distortion.

Supplied Wired Remote

Supplied wired remote commander

A supplied wired remote commander allows you to adjust the subwoofer volume from the driver's seat.

160W peak (75W RMS)

160W peak (75W RMS) output power

Fill your car with 160W (75W RMS) of clean, dynamic bass sound with our original power IC. The matched class A/B amp is designed for high power and natural, distortion-free sound even at high output levels.

High Level Input

High level input/Audio line input

What if you're using a factory radio that doesn't have pre-amp outputs? Simply connect the speaker outputs of your receiver to the high-level inputs. When pre-out audio signals are available from the receiver, connect them to the CH1(R) and CH2(L) terminals. Compatibility with up to 5V pre-outs means you can utilise higher voltage audio input for a clean audio signal and less external noise.

Single-sided controls

Single-sided controls and terminals

Connections and amplifier controls are together on the same side for easy installation and tuning. The amplifier features a variable low-pass filter for simple connection to full-range sources, including the speaker-level inputs. A switch additionally allows you to customise the subwoofer phase output, to prevent any reduced bass response due to phase cancellation from other speakers in your system.


Enrich your in-car listening with the XS-AW8 compact powered subwoofer. The slim design allows installation in restricted spaces, and fills your car with 160W peak (75W RMS) of clean, dynamic bass. A supplied wired remote enables convenient level control from the driver's seat.
