Nuvo Rattles the Rafters With New Family of 8-Inch Passive Subwoofers and Matching Digital Amplifiers
Compact Units Combine Outstanding Bass Response With Powerful Convenience Features for Home Theaters and Audio Installations of Any Size
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. –– July 30, 2019 — Legrand today introduced a new family of Nuvo 8-inch in-ceiling and in-wall passive subwoofers and matching digital amplifiers. Optimized for small, medium, and large home theaters and audio installations, the three compact single and dual subwoofers deliver a powerful, low-frequency impact, while the wall- and rack-mount amplifiers are packed with convenience features for maximum versatility.
For smaller installations, the NV-SUBIC8 in-ceiling subwoofer features a round magnetic grill — with an optional square grill available — and an infinite baffle design for maximum placement flexibility. The NV-SUBIW8 and NV-SUBIWDUAL8 in-wall single and dual subwoofers are designed for medium and large projects, respectively. Both units feature a sealed cabinet constructed of durable MDF for a distortion-free, superior bass experience. The NV-SUBIW8 offers a square magnetic grill, while the NV-SUBIWDUAL8’s grill is rectangular. All three subwoofers are backed by a lifetime warranty.
Up to two NV-SUBIC8, NV-SUBIW8, and NV-SUBIWDUAL8 subwoofers can be deployed with their matching amplifiers: the 100W NV-SUBAMP100-xx, 200W NV-SUBAMP200-xx, and 500W NV-SUBAMP500-xx, respectively. All three units feature signal-sensing power activation, unfiltered LFE/RCA stereo inputs for connecting to most modern receivers, and variable crossover and phase control to match subwoofer output with the main speakers for premium performance and sound. A three-position EQ switch allows amplifier output to be tailored to any Nuvo in-ceiling or in-wall passive subwoofer.
The wall-mount NV-SUBAMP100-xx amplifier offers a convenient two-conductor connector to power an optional wireless receiver. The rack-mount NV-SUBAMP200-xx and NV-SUBAMP500-xx feature 12V DC trigger inputs and outputs, allowing them to control or be controlled by external devices. The NV-SUBAMP500-xx adds digital signal processing (DSP) for a variety of listening modes and an easy-to-navigate front screen. An IR input allows for simple use with control systems.
“Designed to integrate seamlessly with almost any audio system, the new Nuvo subwoofers and amplifiers pack a big punch in space-saving, discrete designs,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager for Legrand | AV. “Delivering a stand-out bass response, the subwoofers bring a whole new dimension of detailed clarity to music and movies, while the amplifiers have all the performance and convenience features needed for an amazing system. Together, they make a powerful addition to audio installations of any size.”
