In a stereo set-up, the importance of a subwoofer is often underestimated. It is regarded as an option, rather than a necessity. However, in listening sessions with direct comparisons of a stereo set-up with and without a subwoofer, it is commonly agreed that a subwoofer increases the overall sound quality significantly. All we can do is to advise you to listen to stereo with and without a subwoofer and then make up your own mind.
In surround, there can be no doubt about the need for a subwoofer. You need deep bass to reproduce explosions, car chases, etc. when viewing movies.
The S600 has two 12” long-throw drive units firing sideways in opposite directions in the sealed enclosure. Powered by a powerful 300 Watt amplifier. The S600 is capable of a maximum SPL of 117 dB from 25 Hz. This is a subwoofer not only to be heard, but also to be seen and felt.
