The Dali SWA 12 is the right subwoofer if you're looking for power (but not a blasting one), excellent sound response (without having to pay for high-end audio-grade), a truly good-looking piece of tech selling for decent money. The Dali SWA 12 subwoofer could be the right bass-machine you were searching: it offers high-technology at an affordable price, neat audio characteristics, the traditional Dali craftsmanship quality and it can match pretty much any sound system, Dali or not, stereo or surround.
Indeed, the The Dali SWA 12 is a subwoofer for those who like the good sound of their music and movies without caring too much about other issues which are in the audiophiles' everyday topics; it will offer you good sound at a very affordable price and will provide you with neat LF response... exactly what you were looking for.
The The Dali SWA 12 Subwoofer can be matched with other Dali loudspeakers or can come as a completing element in sound systems made with other brands' speakers – in either case it will do a very neat job, well worth every penny. The Dali SWA 12 Subwoofer can also be added to both multi-channel surround sound systems as well as used in stereo applications, for more present bass and an overall richer sound.
Despite the fact that the Dali SWA 12 sports a closed cabinet architecture, its response is not at all “chocked” or boomed like in the case of lower quality subs; au contraire, the LF reproduction is clear and clean as the long-throw woofer can really move a lot of air (like larger units do) yet the bass-blast sports a fast attack and tight punch (a characteristic of smaller-diameter woofers).
This air-dried pulp cone-subwoofer can deliver you sound between a rumbling 27Hz and 150Hz creating as much as a loud 112dB sound pressure level and can handle a max power of 120W, being fit for medium rooms in perfect conditions. While being capable of working with both line and speaker level low-pass filtered signal, the The Dali SWA 12 Subwoofer can also handle mono LFE runs. Even more, you get crossover and phase adjustment controls, so this bass machine will sound as good as possible in your room.
