S6 Powered Subwoofer (Open Box)
There's Nothing "Sub" about This Subwoofer
With its highly efficient Class D amplifier and a 6" long throw woofer, the S6 has to be heard to be believed. Audio nerds will be happy to know the S6 boasts a frequency response down to 33Hz in a sealed box design, and with adjustable crossover points between 40 - 130Hzm you can dial in exactly the sound you want. The rest of you will be happy to hear it produces bass that's punchy, smooth, and bottom-of-the-sea deep.
Here's something everyone can appreciate: the S6 can fill most rooms with ease and, for its size, produces a powerful sound that outperforms other compact subs on the market.
Big Bass That Fits in a Little Space
Measuring in at a modest 10”H x 10”W and weighing only about 15 lbs, the S6 adds just the right amount of bass to your desktop, gaming rig, home theater or any other setup.

We Like to Be Flexible
No two systems are alike, so we designed the S6 to work with what you're working with. The S6 features dual analog audio inputs and can connect to two systems at once. Want to save power? The S6 offers a selectable energy saving auto-on mode that detects when there is signal from your audio source.
If you're interested in going wireless, Audioengine's optional W3 system uses the USB charging port so you can place the S6 wherever you want it to go.

Questions & answers about the S6 Powered Subwoofer (Open Box)
Most Audioengine powered speakers have variable RCA outputs for use with a subwoofer like the S6 (the exceptions being the B2 and the 512). This means that the output of the speakers and the RCA output will go up and down together. So once you dial in the volume of your S6, you should be able to adjust the volume from the speakers, or your source device. Either way the subwoofer and speakers should stay in balance as the volume is raised and lowered.
The S6's crossover is a variable low-pass filter, and will not adjust the audio for the RCA output connection. This is a full range line level output.
The S6’s crossover is a variable low-pass filter. This means it variably adjusts how high the S6 will play. Unless the subwoofer is pretty far away, you can usually leave the phase switch set to 0°. When setting up a new S6, I like to start with the crossover all the way counter clockwise and, with some music I'm familiar with playing, first get the volume "about" right. After that try making very small adjustments clockwise on the crossover, evaluating each small change from where you'll be listening from most often. Once it starts sounding like you can localize where the sub is coming from, back it off until you can't again. You may also need to lower the volume a touch after the crossover is dialed in, or perhaps even while you're dialing it in, depending on the acoustics of the room you're in, and your own preference on how present you'd like the sub to sound.
Audioengine powered speakers have fixed passive crossovers designed specifically for them; this simply means that they are designed to play the frequency range they produce, so it's not necessary to alter this when adding a subwoofer. Adding a subwoofer, such as the S6, will pick up where the speakers leave off, extending the low end response.
Yes! You would just need an amp, like our N22, to supply power to the P4 speakers and connect to the S6.
