    Audioengine S8 Premium Powered Subwoofer

    Excellent performance for music, movies, and games. Audioengine S8 is the perfect bass extension for Audioengine powered speakers or as an upgrade to any music system. Super compact size and wireless-ready.
     

    Upgrade your audio

    At about 11" square with an 8" custom woofer, this powered subwoofer is small enough to place in a corner or hide behind furniture. The S8 delivers great bass performance and it's low, tight, and smooth bass will blend well with the other speakers in your system.
     

    Custom Woofer

    The S8 has a super-fast woofer designed for audio and home theater performance. It features an anti-resonant steel frame and heavy-duty rubber speaker surround for accurate low end. The S8's bottom-firing and front-ported design means you'll hear quick, precise bass with low distortion, even at higher volume levels. In other words, this is a tight, smooth, and natural-sounding little subwoofer.
     

    Furniture-Grade Finish

    Custom-designed and handcrafted wood cabinets with high-gloss white or satin black finish make the Audioengine S8 a true work of art. Cabinets are made of rock solid 1-inch thick, internally braced MDF to eliminate cabinet vibrations which means distortion-free, accurate response.
     

    Wireless-ready!

    If you decide to locate the Audioengine S8 away from your powered speakers or surround sound AV receiver, check out the Audioengine W3 wireless audio adapter or Apple’s Airport Express for high-quality wireless options. The S8 has a built-in AC outlet on the rear panel that’s perfect for powering these great-sounding wireless products.
     

    High Power Amplifier

    With plenty of continuous class A/B power, the S8 internal amplifier has a dual-voltage switch and detachable power cord.
     

    Easy Connections

    Dual line-level inputs (1/8" mini-jack and RCA connectors) are included on the rear panel so connecting S8 to all your gear is easy. And all cables you'll need are included.
     

    Versatile Yet Simple Controls

    Variable adjustable rear panel controls for Crossover, Phase, and Subwoofer Volume allow you to easily adjust the S8's output and blending with your speakers. An auto-sleep standby feature turns the S8 amplifier off when you're not playing music.
     

    Hear the Difference

    The Audioengine S8 sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast, we guarantee you will still hear a difference!

    Can I use the P4 passive speakers with the Audioengine S8 sub?

    To use the P4 speakers with the S8 you would need an amp, like our N22, to supply power to the P4 speakers and connect to the S8.

    How do I control the overall volume of my AS8 subwoofer and A5 speakers together?

    The overall volume of the speakers and subwoofer are controlled from the source (your stereo, iPod, TV, etc.).

    Can the AS8 subwoofer be used with the A2 desktop speakers? I don't see any audio outputs on the rear of the A2 speakers?

    With the A2s there are two ways to connect a powered subwoofer to them like the S8. The S8 has two inputs and an output, so you could send the audio signal into the subwoofer from your source, and then use the output to connect to the A2s. The other option would be to send the audio signal from your source into the A2s, and then use the opposite connection as an output to connect to the input on your subwoofer. Both inputs on the A2s will act as outputs when audio is sent into either the A or B input.

    Does the crossover on the S8 adjust the frequencies played by speakers connected to the RCA line output?

    The S8's crossover is a variable low-pass filter, and will not adjust the audio for the RCA output connection. This is a full range line level output.

    S8 Troubleshooting Tips

    • Make sure all of your connections are complete and all of your connector cables are in working order (you will want to swap out some interconnects to test for this).
    • Use as many different input sources as possible to see if the problem follows.
    • Try using the mini plug (Input B) as well as the RCA jacks (Input A) to see how the speaker reacts.
    • Check to see that any wall outlets or surge protectors are switched to the "On" position and are in working order.
    • If you are using any wireless devices, preamps, or external DACs in line with your speakers, please remove the wireless device from the application (temporarily) and connect the source directly to the S8.
    • If you are using a computer in line with the speakers, please make sure the volume is up on your media players, internet radio, master control, device volume, etc. and your balance control in centered.

    If the problem persists please provide us with the results of your troubleshooting. Please also include the date, purchase location, and serial number for warranty purposes. If you live outside of the continental US you will need to contact your dealer or our distributor in your country for further assistance.
