The refined aesthetic with clean, smooth lines, as well as the entire mechanical design of the Sumiko Subwoofers is developed in Italy, in the corporate Design Lab. Manufacturing is done in China following the highly developed methods of the Sonus faber Venere experience. The S.0 is a powerful, compact package representing the entry level into the Sumiko’s range of Active Subwoofer systems. In fact it features a down-firing 6.5″ active unit, along with a high current 150W Class A/B amp allowing it to perform a punchy bass reproduction well beyond its class. Moreover S.0’s rear panel features a complete connectivity solution that allows for both perfectly blended musical sub bass and powerful, percussive, Home theater bass. A wide soundfield reproduction isthe result whenever this subwoofer unit is mated with loudspeaker systems. Solid, fast and full of character. Its amplifier design is a high current 150W Class A/B linear power amplifier. The input filter is an highly advanced design specifically developed for this application; it is responsible for the slam and attack of the S.0. The separate volume controls for High Level and .1 allows perfect levels for music and home theater so there is no need to turn it up for movies, then turn it down for music. In fact, while the High Level Connection allows seamless blend of the sub with the main speakers in music reproduction, the .1 input can be used simultaneously with it providing also a unique Home theater experience at the same time. Drivers are a big part of Sumiko’s subwoofer performance, in fact they are engineered with a lot of care and attention in order to produce truly low bass from relatively small units and to be able to withstand high power and output for long periods of time. Sumiko S.0 uses a quality stamped steel-frame for the down firing 6.5″ Ultra Long Throw speake runit.
