    Ultra-Performance, 500W 8” Subwoofer With Dual 8” Bass Radiators

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

    Fits Anywhere

    Just over one foot wide

    Loud & Clear

    Unique 3XR Architecture

    More Bass

    Like a 10” subwoofer in an 8” sub cabinet

    3XR™ Architecture

    More Bass from
    the Same Space

    Descend’s unique 3XR Architecture provides triple the bass-producing surface area of a traditional ported subwoofer. This extra surface area moves more air, resulting in massive low end. And because 3XR doesn’t use ports, it also provides crystal-clear sound with no port noise distortion.

    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.

    3XR Architecture™
    for as much bass as a
    ported 10” subwoofer

    Learn how it works

    Powerful Amplification


    The DN8 is equipped with a 500-watt peak custom Class D digital amplifier, designed to get the most out of the DN8’s 3XR Architecture. This custom amplification provides the Descend DN8 enough power and efficiency to play as low as 35Hz from a one-foot wide box.

    Custom Class D Digital Amplification
    for immediate impact

    Because the DN8 Class D amplifier is so efficient, little power is wasted as heat, and its entire output is dedicated to providing significantly smoother bass and greater impact. This allows the DN8 subwoofer to blend naturally into any audio system while producing greater volume and impact than competitive designs.

    Control & Customization

    Plays Well With

    You can customize the DN8 to the needs of your application, system and space. The DN8 features built-in controls for variable volume, low pass filter and phase (0/180°) for optimum bass levels and the ability to customize it to the specific needs of your system.

    Back Panel Controls
    for optimized bass levels

    Manually adjust DN8’s variable volume, low pass filter, and phase so it always sounds perfect within your system.

    Variable Volume

    Adjust the volume level of your subwoofer to ensure perfectly proportioned bass for your audio system and your room.

    One, two, or four subs
    for smoother bass
    throughout the room

    While a single subwoofer can add bass and enhanced realism to any system, it may not provide consistent frequency response throughout the room.

    When two or more subwoofers are properly employed throughout the room, sound waves disperse more evenly, flattening the frequency response. The result is smoother bass throughout the room, helping to eliminate boomy locations or dead spots.
