Core Sub - 4x 9" Studio Subwoofer
The pinnacle of depth
Core Sub is the ideal low-frequency extension for all speakers in the Core studio monitor range.
And when we say 'low', we mean it: it digs down with a flat response to 15 Hz with a 6 dB roll-off at 13.5 Hz. There's no meaningful low frequency that it won't reproduce utterly faithfully.
Combine its handcrafted cabinet – made at our factory in Denmark – with four of our latest low-frequency drive units and 1000W of Pascal class-D amplification, and you get a subwoofer worthy of supporting the ground-breaking Core speakers.
Power? You've got it...
Core Sub uses the same DSP engine found in all the Core speakers, which means you can customise its response based on where it's placed in the room. Its analogue and AES digital inputs let you calibrate it to work in any configuration from single-channel extension though 2.1-channel bass management and on to a theatrical LFE channel with the headroom to really nail it. Put your Cores in HP and you're ready to go.
By using the same electronic platform as the rest of the Core products, we can ensure that the Sub's behaviour and tonality are identical to the monitors – which means you get a totally integrated system, not a separate product just for bass.
It's physically integrated, too. The design makes it possible to stack more units and combine it with other Core products. You can even use the VESA mount if you want to get it up on the wall. And it's mix-and-match. For example: add two Subs per side with a Core 47 in between, regulate the dB and all is aligned – both physically and sonically. (Although we can't promise your gold discs will stay in the same place on the wall.)
Finesse? That too...
Each Sub delivers up to 120 dB, integrating perfectly with the power on offer from the rest of the Core series. It's versatile, too – it's digital and analogue, you can stack up to three together and on the top there are indentations to perfectly align any core monitors.
Core Sub has four 9" side-firing handmade Dynaudio hybrid woofers – Dynaudio's new MSP+ Hybrid Drive units – which are made primarily from aluminium for stiffness, and are designed specifically for subwoofers. To counter ringing from the aluminium, it utilises a dual-action damping system that combines paper dampening on the back of the driver and Dynaudio's own Magnesium Silicate Polymer material in a dampening cap on the front, ensuring the best performance. This driver is an improved version of the one you find in the highly acclaimed 18s woofer. The quest was simple; make the best bass driver possible.
Make no mistake: Core Sub isn't just another boom-box. This is a highly accurate low-frequency delivery system.
Get ready to be moved. Literally.
Core Sub Features
Designed, developed, tested and made in Denmark. All the drivers are hand-made at Dynaudio HQ, and each speaker is individually calibrated before it leaves our factory
- Advanced materials
New 4x 9" Dynaudio MSP+ Hybrid Drive units – made with MSP and aluminium – designed specifically for subwoofers. Dual-action damping ensures tight, controlled bass
- Advanced DSP
Core Sub uses the same DSP engine you'll find in the rest of the Core range – so you can customise its response to its position in the room for seamless consistency and integration
Use as many Subs as you need with your Core speakers – stack them in neat arrays or even mount them on walls. Core Sub aligns physically and electronically with your studio
- Power to spare
Each side of the Core Sub has its own dedicated Pascal Class-D amplifier: 2x 500 W each pair of drivers.
- Extreme consistency
All Core speakers are within 0.2 dB of each other for multi-speaker set-ups you can trust
- Installation flexibility
Stacks with other Core Series, soffit mount or on the wall via 3rd party VESA mount
