TECHNOLOGY IN THE SERVICE OF SOUND
The hallmarks of the S4/8 are speed, delicacy, and articulation. Yet, it is capable of sonically portraying the most earth-shaking events in a home theater application.
When used to complement the Genesis 6.1c Center Channel, or any other center channel speaker for that matter, it adds "body" to the voice channel for home theater applications. Its unique form factor means that it can be used as a pedestal for placing a center channel speaker below a plasma TV, or behind a projection screen. The S4/8 is an excellent match to panel and electrostatic loudspeakers, adding the vital bass foundation to bass- shy models.
THE SERVO ADVANTAGE
The S4/8 adds the latest iteration of a technology refined by Genesis and long acknowledged by critical listeners as essential to accurate bass reproduction, Servo-control. A precise yet lightweight accelerometer on each driver continuously monitors motion and sends a signal to high speed circuitry that compares actual cone movement to the input signal. The comparison circuit instantly identifies any deviation from ideal response and instantaneously adds a corrective signal to compensate for any deviation from the input signal even when they include complex, rapidly evolving musical bass lines or artificial effects created to enhance your viewing pleasure. The S4/8 technology guarantees earth-shaking bass coupled with stunning articulation.
POWER FOR TOTAL CONTROL
There are times when finesse requires brute force. The S4/8's proprietary and ultra-efficient GSAT discrete MOSFET switching amplifier is a prime example of power's intelligent application in the service of sonic subtlety. With output capability up to a full kilowatt, the S4/8's Class D design provides extraordinary control and exceptional thermal stability even when playing the most demanding sources continuously at high volume.
THE CRUCIAL INTERFACE
Perhaps the greatest impediment to fully enjoying a subwoofer's contribution with both music and film sources lies in how the woofer system mates with a variety of wide range loudspeakers. The S4/8 accomplishes this task with ease. A fully adjustable low pass filter and volume control allows precise selection of optimum settings for level matching and accurate integration with any music or home theater system.
