Jamo SUB800: ultra-compact and powerful subwoofer

The flagship of this new range consists of four boxes, the Jamo SUB800 is a box that stands out clearly from SUB260, SUB360 and SUB660 models as it is more compact, but also more powerful.

The Jamo SUB800 is not like previous Bass-Reflex or Closed dependent models, because it has integrated a single active/dual passive system, consisting of a 165mm active woofer (anodized aluminum cone), and two passive woofers showing the same characteristics. It is a compact subwoofer, yet it presents an high power of 800 watts (peak), showing respect for such impressive dimensions. However, unlike the SUB660 that can theoretically get up to 24 Hz, its frequency response is 42-200Hz. What remains is still significant in terms of its dimensions.
