The Impact-Mini uses a 6.5 forward firing driver and 8 down-firing passive radiator and features a 300W dynamic power, 180W RMS power amplifier. The dish-shaped aluminum cones limit standing waves, minimize distortion and maximize bass output. With 10 x 10 x 12 dimensions, this tiny cabinet can easily be concealed in any room. The Impact-10 and Impact-12 each feature a down-firing port to maximize bass performance and output, and minimize distortion. The Impact-10 features a 250W dynamic, 150W RMS amplifier and the Impact-12 features a 275W dynamic, 165W RMS amplifier. All three models include MDP amplifiers with more dynamic headroom for high impact, 2 copper-wound voice coils and an adjustable, high quality crossover system to perfectly match the subwoofer with the main speakers in the room. The Impact Series is available immediately and has a suggested retail price of $549 for the Impact-Mini, $399 for the Impact-10 and $499 for the Impact-12.
