If you want home theater entertainment that really grabs your attention and puts you on the edge of your seat, then you need our Omni S8 subwoofer to anchor your speaker system. A solid design with exceptional value, it creates truly immersive music and movie experiences.
In order to produce bass of seismic portions, the Omni S8 packs advanced materials and exclusive technology into one exceptionally designed enclosure. And, while this sleek, compact subwoofer is good at making you feel thunder, it won’t steal it away from your precisely placed décor. You’ll find it neatly tucks away in a corner or under a table, out of direct view.
Detailed Description - How Low Can You Go?
The Omni S8 is the smaller model in our Omni subwoofer lineup. It gets its hard-hitting intensity, with near zero distortion, via a newly developed amplifier that can produce 400 watts of dynamic power and 100 watts of RMS power and a high-output 8-inch driver with a patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround. This proprietary design eliminates surround dimpling, enabling the subwoofer to play lower with greater output and fidelity. The subwoofer’s down-firing port further increases its output by using the floor as a loading surface. In fact, the Omni S8’s frequency response goes down to 27Hz, so it sounds like a much larger subwoofer and sets a new standard in its class.
On the Omni S8’s front panel you’ll find three controls: level, frequency and phase. These accessible controls let you adjust your bass levels with complete ease, as well as facilitate the subwoofer’s acoustical integration with the other speakers in your system. On the back of the subwoofer, high- and low-level inputs, as well as a power mode selection increases both installation and connection flexibility. There’s no denying that the Omni S8 will bring powerful, tight and undistorted deep bass performance to any of our home theater systems; however, we recommend pairing it up with our Omnisat®, Uni-Theater® and Nanosat product lines.
The Science Behind the Mirage Sound: Exclusive Mirage Technologies
Our patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology (U.S. patent #6,725,967, Canadian patent #2,407,123) increases excursion, eliminates distortion and raises efficiency on our woofers and woofer-midranges such as those in the OC-45. While a speaker surround (suspension) permits cone movement, our proprietary Ribbed Elliptical Surrounds permits identical movement in both directions for near zero distortion and improved resolution. Our Ribbed Elliptical Surrounds also allow for a more cone surface and greater peak to peak movement than conventional designs, resulting in greater efficiency. These attributes enable our woofers and woofer-midranges to move more air with less distortion, ultimately allowing them to play lower in frequency with greater clarity and dynamics. This is especially helpful in smaller or slender speakers, like the OC-45, by providing better dynamics and lower distortion (attributes normally associated with larger speakers) while being easy to blend with subwoofers for a more seamless system.
“The Omni S8 packs an incredible amount of value into its compact, affordable package. Its sound delivers with an exclamation point, over all types of music, home theater, and gaming material, providing a terrific combination of weight, punch, speed, and detail with only minor flaws that never detract from the presentation. 'Tight' is the word that best describes this product - while it may be missing a couple features and a smidge of ultimate fidelity, it delivers so much for the price that you barely notice. The Omni S8 is an extremely formidable contender in its price bracket, and must be auditioned by all shoppers anywhere near it.”- Home Theater Review (June, 2010)

I purchased one in 2008 for my home theater. It has a tremendous sound and worked well for five years while experiencing limited use--less than a couple dozen times per year. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Robert

In short, it's a very tight, clean sounding subwoofer without any of the... Read more
I got this as an additional subwoofer to my 7.2 system. It bottoms out so you cannot turn it up too loud for deep bass but it adds good dimension. Read morePublished on December 11, 2012 by dizzle
This speaker gives out clear un-muffled bass. Having a low pass filter helped a lot in fine tuning the sound. Highly recommend this speaker.Published on September 22, 2012 by Bill
