sunfire_true_subwoofer_eq.jpgAhhhhh ... the subwoofer that started it all.  Before Bob Carver cooked up the idea of putting a crazy-powerful digital amp into a small box with an ultra-long excursion driver, the concept of truly loud and deep bass from a small subwoofer cabinet was thought by most to be physically impossible.  Bob Carver doesn't believe in impossible, as he reads a lot of comic books and has superpowers that can turn a Folgers can into a 1000-watt power amp.  I wouldn't mess with the guy, as he might have laser beam eyes, too.  I am seeing a spec script for Heroes shaping up here.

Slightly smaller than the Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ Signature, the Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ ($2,095) is 11 inches square, as opposed to the 13-inch square of its larger relative.  This middle brother in the Sunfire line can output a very, very respectable 110 dB of volume and can rock your music and home theater "point 1" LFE track with enthusiasm.  Unlike the original Sunfire True Subwoofer, the new offering comes with room correction, complete with a small testing microphone that can help everyone get the most from their woofers, most importantly, in specific rooms.  The new designed subwoofers also come with a grille to make for a subtler look.  Internally, you get a 1,500-watt Bob Carver (Sunfire) tracking downcoverter amplifier, which is the heart and soul of any Sunfire Subwoofer.
