JBL Synthesis Adds New In-Wall Subwoofer to Lineup
HARMAN's JBL Synthesis has announced the introduction of the SSW-4 in-wall subwoofer. The SSW-4 is designed to complement the JBL Synthesis range of in-wall loudspeakers and provide the highest levels of sonic performance for custom home theater applications.
The SSW-4 is a self-contained subwoofer with integrated back-box that allows for easy retrofit installations, while optimized for the highest level of performance and reliability and includes a custom installer-focused feature set.
The subwoofer is driven by dual eight-inch (200mm) front-firing drivers with sealed acoustic tuning. An integrated MDF back-box enclosure with ABS front baffle provides a flange and integrated magnets to support a zero-bezel magnetically attached grille.
Heavy-duty, gold-plated push terminals provide for easy speaker cable connection. The unique mounting system provides acoustic isolation from the wall framing while the compact footprint allows for easy retrofit installations without the need for installing a large enclosure behind the drywall.
"The SSW-4 is optimized for deep, powerful bass response and complements our full range of JBL Synthesis in-wall loudspeakers," said Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, HARMAN. "It is an excellent solution for the custom installer who is seeking a high-performance, in-wall subwoofer that easily retrofits into a standard 2x4 stud frame construction projects."
The subwoofer can discreetly integrate into any environment and décor. It can also be installed in a traditional application behind acoustic fabric or woven/perforated video screens without installing the grilles. The JBL Synthesis SSW-4 will be available in Spring 2018 for $1000/each MSRP.
