Descend Series

Engineered for those who demand thunderous, impactful, oversized bass while retaining full system clarity, Descend Series subwoofers are the ultimate overachievers.

Loud & Clear Bass

3XR™️ Architecture

Descend’s unique 3XR Architecture provides triple the bass-producing radiating surface area of a traditional ported subwoofer. This extra surface area moves more air, resulting in massive low end. And because 3XR doesn’t use ports, it also provides crystal-clear sound with no port noise distortion.

Passive Radiators
for louder, lower, cleaner bass

As the core technology behind Descend’s 3XR Architecure, passive bass radiators enable subwoofers to play as loud and low as a ported sub without unwanted port noise distortion. And they deliver a smooth frequency response like a sealed sub, but with the port-like ability to play louder and lower in a smaller enclosure.

More Bass
from the same space

Because Descend Series subwoofers have three times the bass-radiating surface area as similar-sized ported subwoofers, they produce more bass from the same sized enclosure.
