I love bass in my games, TV shows, and movies on my smartphone and my computer. I hate the giant subwoofer enclosures though, since they always seem to take up a bunch of space. A company called soundmatters has a new subwoofer called the foxLO that will be displayed at CES 2012 for the first time. The company promises awesome bass and all that jazz, but what has caught my eye is its size.
The foxLO is small enough that you can hide it behind your desk or even inside the desk without issues. The dimensions of the little device are just 2.5″ H x 4.5″ W x 6.3″ D, which is small enough to fit under the cramped quarters beneath my desk. The gadget has a pass-through output for use with speakers without a subwoofer output, as well as adjustable bass levels.
The sub is able to deliver deep bass from such a small package thanks to its Linear Magnetic Drive, which sounds like a way to launch spaceships to me. The amp inside the box is a 25W unit and there is a passive radiator system as well. It also has a charging port for your iPhone or other USB device on the side too. The point of this is to supplement the low-end for soundmatters’ foxL speaker system. The foxLO will retail for $149(USD) and will hit stores this spring.
