The B8 pairs with the established d&b xC, xS and E-Series loudspeakers, with dedicated models for mobile (B8-SUB) and install (Bi8-SUB).

The B8 is an actively driven subwoofer that features two 6.5” drivers with ferrite magnets housed within a bass-reflex cabinet design. The drivers reportedly achieve a low frequency extension from 170 Hz down to 43 Hz. The B8 can be driven by all current d&b amplifiers, achieving a max. SPL of 122 dB.

The B8 can be used under stages, stairs or ceilings; landscape or portrait; flush mounted or flown with small mid/high d&b loudspeakers.

“The lower frequencies play an important role in the perception of speech and rhythm,” affirms d&b Product Manager, Wolfgang Schulz. “Subwoofers have often been omitted from applications due to space constraints or the visually sensitive nature of a venue. Now listeners can get a full bandwidth experience everywhere, because it’s very easy to integrate the B8 anywhere.”
