I like the idea of a total sea change. Everything in the world of subwoofers today is about manipulating stats to make a small subwoofer look on paper like it performs like a big subwoofer
. The fact is: physics are physics and if you want to shake your soul with subsonic low frequencies, you need a big subwoofer to accomplish the goal. Definitive Technology
has known this fact since their inception, as they have long had subwoofers built into the sides of their tower loudspeakers
, but tower loudspeakers can only go so low. If you need (or really want) to go ultra-low - like piss-off-Satan-with-the-bass-from-your-system low or get-a-phone-call-from-CalTech low - may I suggest that you take a long look at Definitive Technology's beefy Trinity subwoofer.Additional Resources

with the Trinity subwoofer in it.
Designed to reinforce the deepest low notes from the pipe organ at Trinity Church New York City, this subwoofer is the lovely definition of over-engineered. The reported specs take this woofer from the familiar high limits of about 100 Hertz to insane depths of 10 Hz. The Definitive Technology Trinity subwoofer weighs a massive, forklift-inspiring 175 pounds. The giant sub is 18 inches wide by 18 inches deep and a stout 31 inches tall. It is not obnoxious in its size, but it is by no means a mini-subwoofer. Definitive has those for interested buyers, but the Trinity is for extremists like you and me. The driver complement of the Definitive Technology Trinity subwoofer reviewed here is, amazingly, two 14-inch drivers that are powered by 2,000 watts of class D digital power. Many crossover adjustments are available and phase can be adjusted 180 degrees to fit the sub sonically into the room. The Definitive Technology Trinity Sub is currently priced at $3,000, which is in line with other high-end subwoofers on the market, such as Revel's Sub 30.Read The High Points, Low Points and Conclusion on Page 2
