8 Inch Subwoofer - ForceField 3


The extraordinary 12 inch subwoofer ForceField 5 incorporates all the advanced technology and innovative concepts introduced in the ForceField 3 and 4 in a larger and even more powerful low-frequency beast. The ForceField 5 combines a long-throw 12" subwoofer (which incorporates a huge high gauss magnet structure) driven by a GoldenEar-designed DSP-controlled 1500-Watt digital amplifier and pressure coupled to a downward-firing 12-3/4" x 14-1/2" quadratic planar infrasonic radiator.

The ForceField Subwoofers’ unique and attractive cabinet shape, with its non-parallel cabinet walls (the top is narrower than the bottom when viewed from the front), helps the ForceField subs achieve extraordinarily deep and tuneful bass that is ideal for music and movies. Their cutting-edge amplifier design employs state-of-the-art DSP control for frequency shaping so the subwoofer produces accurate, consistent and musical bass performance.

Let's take a look at the ForceField subwoofers to see what makes them special. We'll start with two very common subwoofer design concepts and then we'll delve into GoldenEar's unique and better solutions. Many of today's subwoofers fall into either the ultra-compact high-output category, or the (larger) high performance, extended response, high-output category. These two design types tend to offer different performance benefits, the ultra compact having the ability to play extremely loud, but over a narrower bandwidth and the large subs having this high output plus more extended response.
