Fluance Unveiled Its New DB10 Subwoofer

Posted on Mar 21 2017 - 7:16pm by David Gregorio

Fluance announced the addition of the DB10 subwoofer to its product lineup. To deliver deeper bass performance, the new DB10 is equipped with a front firing driver that offers longer excursion and controlled linearity, ensuring the lowest frequencies are consistently heard on every track without any unexpected roll off. A highly efficient and effortless amplifier powers the DB10 into a perfectly refined experience that simultaneously makes hearts race.

The Fluance DB10 is ported and precisely tuned to the enclosure and designed to reproduce both low and ultra-low frequencies. The solid cabinet construction uses engineered MDF wood for a warm and distortion free-sound. Its minimal footprint also enables two DB10’s to be integrated into one system for the ultimate 5.2 or 7.2 sys to create a fully immersive home theater experience.

Fluance DB10 Subwoofer Design:

Like most subwoofers, the DB10 resembles a black cube though in this case, it is actually more of a rectangle, measuring 15.7 × 11.9 × 16 inches, and weighing in a 24.7 pounds. The cabinet is constructed from the engineered medium-density fibreboard wood, which Fluance says that both helps keep distortion to a minimum and impart a warm, pleasant quality to the sound. The cabinet is ported and precisely tuned, enabling it to faithfully reproduce low frequencies.

While many subwoofers feature downward-facing drivers, the new DB10 uses a 10-inch front-firing driver that the company says can reach as low as 20 Hz without any unexpected roll-off. The driver is just powered by a built-in amplifier that the company lists as having a peak power of 120w. The speaker produces frequencies as high as 180 Hz and the crossover is adjustable between 45 Hz and 180 Hz. Phase correction ensures that you will not encounter any missing frequencies throughout the low end.

Fluance DB10 Subwoofer Price:

The DB10 is the first entry into Fluance’s new flagship family of powered subwoofers with the next model, the DB12, launching in Spring 2017. This subwoofers will be sold as a stand-alone product as well as part of surround sound series packages. The new DB10 Subwoofer is available now for $200 at Fluance.com.
