Since 1993, Klipsch has developed high-output subwoofers to match the different Klipsch speaker lines. We designed our latest subwoofers to be cross-brand compatible with any speaker or home theater system. Each new subwoofer boasts a modern, unobtrusive design, and features the latest in amplifier and driver technology for unrivalled power and efficient bass extension.
BASH Digital Hybrid Class AB Amplifier
Klipsch C-308SWIB powered subwoofer features a highly efficient BASH digital hybrid class AB amplifier which produces reliable, high-powered sound. The built-in amplifier is rated at 300 watts RMS (650 watts Peak). The RMS power rating indicates power available on a continuous, long-term basis. The Peak power rating indicates power available for large, short-term peaks in your music or movie soundtrack.
8 Inch Fiberglass Woofer
Klipsch C-308SWIB powered subwoofer features a front-firing 8″ woven fiberglass driver for tight musical bass. The woofer employs a large 4-layer aluminum-wound voice coil for high volume output.
Power LED Indicator
Located on the powered subwoofer’s front baffle, this LED indicates the operating status of the unit’s built-in amplifier. The LED will light red when the amplifier is in standby mode and green when the amplifier is on and receiving a signal. If the LED is dark and not lit, the amplifier is off.
The gain control of the Klipsch C-308SWIB adjusts the subwoofer’s volume relative to the rest of your home audio system. If the Klipsch powered subwoofer is connected to the Subwoofer Output (LFE) on your AV receiver, first set the subwoofer volume level control in the receiver to the “half-way” or the “0-dB” position. Then increase the gain of the subwoofer until the subwoofer’s volume level matches the output of your main speakers. After this setup is completed, the volume control of your AV receiver will be the volume control for both the Klipsch powered subwoofer and your connected loudspeakers.
Klipsch C-308SWIB powered subwoofer is equipped with a pair of line-level RCA-type inputs. Most of today’s AV receivers have a line-level subwoofer output (LFE) labeled Subwoofer Pre Out, Sub Out, or SW Out. If your receiver has this output, connect on end of a subwoofer cable to it and connect the other end of the cable into the powered subwoofer’s line-level input labeled “LEFT/LFE”.
The Klipsch powered subwoofer is fitted with a proprietary 4-pin “WA-Port” connector for wireless operation, using Klipsch’s optional WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit (sold separately). The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit consists of two components; a wireless Transmitter & wireless Receiver. The WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit makes adding the Klipsch powered subwoofer to your home theater system much easier.
