Sunfire Rocks The World with Dynamic Series Subwoofers, Delivering Bigger Bass Performance From Smaller Budgets
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 8, 2009
ATLANTA, GA - CEDIA Booth #1812 - Sunfire®, a specialist in the design, manufacture and marketing of luxury home theater products for the custom specialist and retail markets, announced their powerful, yet budget-friendly Dynamic Series of subwoofers. Tuned for both low frequency Home Theater Effects and powerhouse musical bass lines these new subwoofers boast up to 600 Watts Peak Power. The lineup will be introduced this September at CEDIA Expo at the Sunfire Booth.
The Sunfire Dynamic Series - 8", 10" and 12" Subwoofers, are the perfect blend of form and function and the ideal choice for systems where small size and high output are required. Sunfire's new digital amplifier delivers from 400 to 600 Watts of cool running peak output in the three models, with unprecedented performance at this price point. Each subwoofer features a Sunfire-designed woofer and acrostically matched passive radiator - twice the speakers for twice the bass. The DS family is also the first in the Sunfire line built around energy efficient Class-D amplification, dynamically adjusting the output of the subwoofer's power supply to suite the requirements of the incoming audio signal. Add a low-power standby mode with signal-sensing power on/off and you have a solid performer over time, while continuously variable phase, crossover and volume controls mean fast and precise setups. An optional 2.4GHz wireless transmitter and receiver make "no-new-wires" possible, even in challenging environments. Up to 4 receivers and subwoofers are supported from a single transmitter.
"For the last fifteen years, Sunfire's customers have been obsessed with performance," said Mark Weisenberg, Sunfire General Manager. "Our new Dynamic Series builds on our pedigree of subwoofer excellence and delivers unsurpassed bass-for-the-buck. Now more enthusiasts than ever will be able to enjoy the Sunfire experience in their homes."
Other products found in this price range simply focus on the quantity of output over a limited frequency range, limiting the quality of performance to only a few kinds of material. Today's consumer watches and listens to a wide variety of content - TV, movies, music, games, etc. - using the same system, which demands both quality and quantity. Sunfire engineers designed these speakers with the company's proprietary Frequency Filtration Design™ (FFD), preserving a spectral balance across the entire bass frequency range to deliver superior balance and definition PLUS high output no matter what source material is being used. In subwoofer terms, music demands definition over a wider range of bass frequencies, while movies are equalized for optimum performance at slightly different frequencies to accentuate the special effects- the Sunfire Dynamic Series achieves both. Small rooms, big bass - no problem!
The Sunfire Dynamic Series is available in three sizes, the SDS-8 8" driver, at 32Hz-150Hz, with a peak power of 400W, the SDS-10 10" driver, at 30Hz-150Hz, with a peak of 500W and the SDS-12 12" driver, at 28 Hz-150Hz, at 600W peak power. The SDS-8 lists for an MSRP of $350,, the SDS-10 for $450, the SDS-12 for $550 and the optional 2.4 GHz wireless kit for $150. The speakers will be shown at CEDIA Expo September 23-26 at the Sunfire booth 1812 and will ship in October.
