Triad Speakers announced today that it’s now shipping an updated version of its popular InWall Bronze/4 SlimSub, which adds both aesthetic touchups and performance enhancements to the already impressive discrete subwoofer. The biggest standouts in the redesign include a new flush-mount, 3-15/16” deep enclosure that no longer protrudes from the wall; a new long-throw 10-inch aluminum woofer; and a thin steel back plate instead of thick MDF, giving the woofer more air to work with and more room to woof.
Lest you think all of that shrinking and flattening and flush-mounting results in compromised performance, Triad promises that the new InWall Bronze/4 SlimSub delivers performance rivaling that of its 6-inch deep InWall Bronze/6 model, with 109 dB of output from 40 to 80 Hz, and low frequency extension that’s only 6 dB down at 25Hz.
From the press release:
The SlimSub fits into the same cut-out (size “V”) as the company’s other in-wall subs, making it ideal for retrofit opportunities. To further blend with the décor of most any home, the SlimSub incorporates all 3 types of Triad’s Acoustimesh™ grill (wide, narrow and frameless) which the company can custom paint-match at the factory.
So if you’re looking for a hidden subwoofer that doesn’t skimp on performance capabilities or style, this is one is worth a serious look and listen. The updated Triad InWall Bronze/4 SlimSub is shipping now, and is paired with Triad’s 350-watt RackAmp 350 DSP rack-mounted amplifier for $1400 MSRP. Or you can opt for the RackAmp 600 DSP to save some rack space if you’re running a dual-sub configuration. Both amps feature IP setup and control capabilities (compatible with web browsers only, not IP-capable home automation systems, unfortunately), as well as two customizable presets and a 6-Band Parametric EQ with 5 Hz resolution (-12dB to + 3dB; Q of .3 to 10), allowing you to search for and stamp out those nasty room resonant nodes with precision and finesse.
