The SW6.5's and SW8's compact sizes and fingerprint-resistant piano-black finishes present a profile that is easy to blend into any d├ęcor. Pairing a long-throw front-firing woofer with dual long-throw side-mounted passive radiators, the compact subwoofers allegedly deliver the power of subwoofers four times their size.

Both subwoofers feature automated turn-on via 12 volt trigger or audio signal sensing and include a built in CAT5 balun to enable audio delivery over CAT5 cable. Additionally, both models come with a built-in bracket-mount that is compatible with the OmniMount 30.0 ST-MP to allow easy wall or ceiling mounting. Installers can further increase the subwoofers' placement flexibility by going wireless with the optional Niles SW-T wireless transceiver and SW-R receiver that attaches to a built-in mounting port on the rear of the subwoofers.

As for the audio, the SW6.5 produces 200W RMS power and up to 800W peak power through a 6.5" active driver and two 6.5" passive radiators with a frequency response of 42-200Hz. This power is delivered from a cabinet that is smaller than 10 inches-cubed and weighs only 11 pounds.

The SW8 ups the ante, producing 300W RMS power and up to 1200W peak power through an 8" active driver and two 8" passive radiators with a frequency response of 36-200Hz. The SW8 cabinet is about 12 inches-cubed and weighs 16.5 pounds.
