The best subwoofer for Eris monitors.
The Eris® Sub8 is the first subwoofer to join the lauded and best-selling Eris studio monitor line. We called it Eris because it’s been designed from the ground up to be part of the family; it compliments the voicing and frequency response of the modern Eris classics. Of course, they’ll play nice with other monitors, too, but if you’ve got a pair of Eris in your home or studio already, the Eris Sub8 is the single best subwoofer you can get to put a little boom in your room.
Maximize your frequency response and accuracy.
The surprisingly loud 100 watt Eris Sub8 drops down to a molar-rattling 30 Hz—a full 50 Hz below the Eris E3.5s. This allows you to both rock harder and produce better mixes, as you’ll be hearing an accurate representation of your work. For EDM and hip-hop producers, in particular, a subwoofer is a must-have. The Eris Sub8 lets you naturally extend the reach of your Eris E3.5 or E4.5 monitors in a manner appropriate to smaller rooms—exactly where these monitors excel.
Total control and connectivity.
Thanks to robust configuration and I/O, you’ll be able to tailor your Eris Sub8 configuration exactly to your mixing and listening needs. You can connect your existing monitors via ¼-inch TRS or RCA connections, set the input level to your liking, and even invert the polarity. Most importantly, you get a high-pass filter and a low-pass crossover control that ensure your Eris Sub8 starts working at the precise low-frequency point where your main monitors stop. This makes sure you avoid the flabby, smudged, low-end mess that one hears in redundant, duplicate, redundant bass reproduction that occurs without a crossover.
All work and all play.
While we’ve designed the Eris Sub8 to compliment our smaller-form Eris media reference monitors, we also know that gamers, partiers, and movie buffs all enjoy some room-rattle now and again. So rest easy knowing that the Eris Sub8s will upgrade the performance of any powered speaker configuration in a home theater or gaming rig.
When you hear the low-frequency foundation of your mix accurately, you can make more informed decisions and create more translatable mixes. You’ll also have more fun.
