To accurately reproduce sound, and audio system must cover the entire audible frequency range. It must reach the highest harmonics and the lowest fundamentals. It must convey the delicacy of a brushed triangle as well as the authority of timpani drums.
Vandersteen Model 2W series subwoofers augment the deep bass response of your present speaker. They provide the power, dynamics and low frequency detail required for superlative reproduction of music and film. They assume the responsibility for deep bass reproduction, improving the mid-bass and midrange response of your system. The three eight inch drivers equal the cone area of a fourteen inch woofer, but with much higher motor-to-cone-area ratio. The high ratio improves pitch definition and insures stable frequency and phase responses throughout and beyond the drivers’ operating range.
Two versions of the 2W subwoofer are available, each engineered and optimized for specific situations. The 2Wq receives its input from the power amplifier and is designed to maintain maximum sonic continuity between the subwoofers and main speakers in all music and home theater systems where a crossover can be inserted between the preamplifier/processor and the main power amplifier. The V2W accepts line-level inputs exclusively and is designed for home theater systems with integrated processor/amplifier units where the bass is handled by a line-level subwoofer channel.
