    4 Ways to Complete Your Soundstage - What Are You Missing? — Audioengine

    With an Audioengine home music system, enthusiasts have a solid foundation for exceptional audio, right out of the box. However, to unlock the full depth of your music, integrating a subwoofer like the Audioengine S8 is essential. A subwoofer adds a new dimension to your music, especially in tracks rich in low-end frequencies. It enhances the depth and resonance of the bass, introducing you to an entirely new music experience, with bass that is reminiscent of your favorite live concert. The S8 offers 23hz - 38hz more audio you're not going to hear without it.

    Dual audio inputs are placed on the rear panel so connecting the S8 to your gear is quick and easy. The auto-sleep standby feature turns the S8 Subwoofer off when you’re not playing music, so you don't have to worry about draining power after the dance party's ended.

    Questions & answers about the S8 Powered Subwoofer

    Absolutely!  You can connect any Audioengine speaker with an analog output to any Sonos product that has the Line-In feature.  You can also connect any Audioengine passive speakers into an existing Sonos system using the Sonos Amp.

    Yes! All of our speakers and subwoofers are directly video shielded. They also allow the user to place the speakers or subwoofer within a few inches of a video monitor. In addition, this shielding offers protection for hard-drive digital music players.

    M6 x 40mm, 6mm diameter pan head

    Yes they do! They are equipped with a power-saving circuit that turns off the speaker's final stage amp. This idle mode activates right after you stop playing music. Due to this power-saving function, it's perfectly fine for the speakers to stay on all the time!

    Audioengine speakers can be easily connected to your TV set as long as there are analog outputs available. Any of our speakers will provide a greatly enhanced TV audio experience with a wider soundstage and better imaging than most sound bars.

    Your A2+/A5+ have a variable RCA output located on the rear panel of the left speaker.  This connection can be used to connect an S8 Powered Subwoofer (or any self-powered subwoofer) for extended bass response.

    You can also add a W3 Wireless Adapter to make this connection wireless as shown below.

    Yes!  If you already own an S8, you'd just need a wireless adapter like our W3. If you're looking to buy an S8, consider getting our S8 Wireless that comes with the W3 included.
