Definitive Technology DN8 Ultra-Performance, 500W 8” subwoofer


DN8’s unique 3XR Architecture™ means it performs louder and clearer than other 8” subwoofers.

Passive Radiators
for louder, lower,
cleaner bass

As the core technology behind Descend’s 3XR Architecure, its passive bass radiators enable the DN8 to play as loud and low as a 10” ported sub without unwanted port noise distortion. Passive radiators also deliver a smooth frequency response like a sealed sub, but with the port-like ability to play louder and lower in a smaller enclosure.

What you get is the best of both worlds: louder, clearer bass than a ported sub from a smaller enclosure than a sealed sub.
