A compact subwoofer is usually a compromise between keeping the outer dimensions to a minimum and producing adequate bass sound.

To ensure that the tidy size for use in the living-room does not impair one´s listening pleasure, a certain minimum cabinet volume is essential. The 15 litres available in the MINI SUB 170 have been realised in a cabinet that is only 20 cm wide. With its depth of 39 cm and a height of 30 cm, the MINI SUB 170 will easily find a space beside, on or even under any piece of furniture of standard dimensions.

The long-excursion aluminium
AL 170 8 Ohm woofer generates no less than 85 dB (at a distance of 1 metre) in conjunction with the front bass reflex vent at one watt and from 65 Hz. Within the range from 40 Hz to 70 Hz, the series-connected 800-µF capacitor raises the output level by a further 2 dB. As a result, this small-sized speaker cabinet sounds far more grown-up than its physical size would suggest.

The MINI SUB 170 is a perfect complement to a compact satellite system (stereo and home theatre) or PC speakers which are often sadly lacking in the bass department. In other words, it will always be suitable where a chunky
subwoofer monster will either not fit or is not desirable but you do not want to do without a solid low-frequency musical foundation.


All the
cabinet panels are cut from 16 mm chipboard or medium density fibreboard, butt-jointed and glued. After that, the openings for the driver and terminals are cut out and any necessary recesses cut.

If a separate Bass amplifier is used and should be installed directly to the housing, the necessary cut outs have to be added to the rear side of the
cabinet (in this case the size of the woofer has to be increased to assure the 15 l volume; depending on the used amplifier a separate board between amplifier subwoofercabinet may also be needed).

If no separate Bass amplifier is used the terminal
ST 77 has to installed to the rear panel.
