Wisdom Audio STS SubwooferLet’s say your home theater’s bass just isn’t rattling your fillings the way it should. Let’s say you’ve robbed a bank and happen to have $10,000 in non-consecutive, unmarked bills laying around. The folks at Wisdom Audio have what you’ve been looking for: The STS Subwoofer, a high-performance model featuring 130dB output capability at 20 Hz, and 5 kW power handling with 101 dB sensitivity. You better go ahead and schedule an appointment with the dentist before this baby’s installed. A call to the roofer wouldn’t be a bad idea either. Your rafters are going to take a beating.

The STS delivers this type of unparalleled performance in a 17-3/4″ wide by 36″ deep cabinet that houses dual 15-inch drivers. The STS also uses Wisdom Audio’s Regenerative Transmission Line rear wave recovery and reinforcement system. With this footprint, the STS provides installers with greater flexibility for standalone or hidden configurations. The output port on the STS can be easily repositioned from the front of the unit to either side so that it will fit in almost any space. A port extension also allows the STS to be installed in hidden spaces such as a closet, under a floor, in the ceiling, or in a different room altogether.

Each bass driver in the STS is constructed with a cast aluminum alloy frame and a neodymium motor assembly. The STS also features a four-inch edge-wound copper voice coil with an 11,000-Gauss magnetic field. The drivers are parallel-wired for efficiency and power handling. When paired with other components in Wisdom Audio’s Sage Series, the STS can benefit from Audyssey’s MultEQ room correction system.

The STS subwoofer will be available in October 2010 at the aforementioned $10,000 retail price. For more information visit Wisdom Audio or call 775.887.8850.
