Definitive Technology Descend DN8 8" Powered Subwoofer

Sized to fit anywhere, the DN8 performs bigger, louder and clearer than other 8” subwoofers. Its unique 3XR™ Architecture creates three times the radiating surface area of similarly sized subs, providing more bass. And because it uses passive bass radiators, you get that big, thrilling bass with no port noise distortion.


3XR™ Architecture for Loud & Clear Bass
Descend Series subwoofers feature Definitive Technology’s new 3XR™ Architecture, providing three times the bassproducing radiating surface area of a traditional ported subwoofer. This extra surface area moves more air, resulting in massive bass. And because 3XR doesn’t use ports, it provides crystal-clear lows with no port noise distortion.

Fits Nearly Everywhere
The DN8 is just over one foot wide, enabling it to fit virtually any room or system. And due to its 3XR™ Architecture,it performs like a 10” subwoofer even though it has an 8” driver. With the DN8, you get tons of bass from a one-foot sub.

Custom Class D Digital Amplification
The DN8 is equipped with a 500W peak custom Class D digital amplifier, designed to get the most out of the DN8’s 3XR™ Architecture. This custom amplification gives the Descend DN8 enough power and efficiency to play as low as 35Hz.

Control & Customization
You can customize the DN8 to the needs of your own application, system and space. The DN8 features built-in controls to dial in volume, lowpass filter and phase (0/180°) for optimum bass levels. Set its power toggle to Auto on/off or DC control for fast and easy on/off power switching.

Connects to Any System
The DN8 delivers deep, dynamic bass to any home theater or music system. Easily connect it via LFE or stereo line level RCA inputs (cables not included).

Premium Color Options
The non-resonant cabinet is beautifully designed and available in two modern, acoustically transparent finishes: Midnight Black and Glacier White.
