Pow­ered sub­woofer en­clo­sure

Let’s face it, lis­ten­ing to mu­sic with­out some de­cent bass just isn’t much fun. As I heard one salesman say, “Un­less all you lis­ten to is talk ra­dio, you ab­so­lutely need a sub!”

Not ev­ery­one has the room how­ever, or wants to see a bulky woofer en­clo­sure ev­ery time they open the trunk. What’s needed here is some­thing un­ob­tru­sive and eas­ily con­cealed. If that sounds like what you need, I have good news: the folks at Di­a­mond Au­dio have a so­lu­tion.

By in­cor­po­rat­ing an am­pli­fier, sub­woofer and pas­sive ra­di­a­tor all into one cast-alu­minum chas­sis, Di­a­mond has a bril­liant small and shal­low 10-inch sub­woofer sys­tem, called the DPAS10.

FEA­TURES

The com­plete sys­tem is in­cred­i­bly small, mea­sur­ing just 14.375 x 9.875 x 3 inches! With such a small foot­print and very low height, the unit should fit be­hind the seat of even the tight­est pick-up cabs or un­der the seat of most cars. The cabi­net is con­structed al­most en­tirely of solid ex­truded alu­minum for strength and a low res­o­nant fre­quency, and be­cause of the ex­truded alu­minum en­clo­sure de­sign, the en­clo­sure does dou­ble duty as the am­pli­fier’s heatsink. Thanks to the high ef­fi­ciency Class-D de­sign, the am­pli­fier draws less cur­rent and gen­er­ates less heat than a con­ven­tional am­pli­fier.

An ul­tra-slim-pro­file woofer that was specif­i­cally de­signed for this prod­uct is uti­lized, and it is driven by the 150-watt built-in am­pli­fier. Like the woofer, the am­pli­fier has also been de­signed specif­i­cally for op­ti­mum per­for­mance in this en­clo­sure with this woofer.
