120W of bone-shaking bass in your face.

With the M-Audio SBX Powered Subwoofer it's easy to get the bass sound you need. With so many consumers using subwoofers these days, you're not really mixing accurately without having a sub yourself. M-Audio's unique Stereo Bass Management System splits the signal at the variable crossover frequency, routing everything below to the sub and everything above to the mains.

What's Stereo Bass Management?

When subwoofers are added to many systems, all frequencies are routed to both the main monitors and the sub. The sub typically has a low-pass filter to roll off the highs as does the SBX. The problem is that both the main monitors and the sub are still trying to put out the same low frequencies, thereby compromising fidelity. Our Stereo Bass Management System solves that and delivers optimal quality. The SBX accommodates the stereo outputs from your mixer, and your main monitors then connect to outputs on the sub. The SBX's internal crossover network splits the signal at a user-defined crossover frequency (50-180Hz), routing everything below it to the internal sub and everything above it the main outputs. This significantly improves fidelity because the sub and mains aren't tripping over each other to reproduce the same frequency and each component only has to reproduce frequencies to which it is ideally suited.

Best Studio Sub for $

By Stone Studio

from Lakeville, CT

It simply doesn't get any better or tighter than this. Rich adjustable bass, that is easy to configure. I have used Genelec, JBL, Tannoy ect. This one is right up there!




from Cookeville, TN

Well, it's fantastic. The sub-networking has no latency (none that I can notice anyway). The sub sounds extremely 'warm' as is advertised from the smooth clipping circuit. Anyway.. it packs a wallop. Combined with BX5's I now have a really nice 2.1 system for cheap.


Truly Bone Shaking Bass

By Rokib

from New York

I was using the BX5a pair for 3 months then I finally ordered the SBX. WOW!!! huge difference in sound. The bass quality is just awesome. it took a while to get the desired sound but after the tweaking it was unbelievable. Totally satisfied.


Add depth to your mix

By XTQt3VEzz

from San Jose, CA

This is a great addition to the BX8a pair of powered monitors for an unbelievable price. Testing on a variety of sources validates the depth this sub brings to the table. It is also adjustable with a dial for the satellites and a dial for the sub to accomodate a variety of studio set ups


Killer Sub to help low end mixing

By Tha]-[ackSaw

from Bay Area, CA

Just got this from musicians friend. I have been using M-Audio BX-5 for a few year in my home studio. The BX-5's are really nice but they laque in the low end. Lots of people will argue this point. If your mixing for radio and some CD, then low end sounds is not as important and it might be otherwise. The problem that I find is that more and more people are using 2.1 and 5.1 and 7.1 systems these days. When I take a mix of mine and listen to it on one of those I realize how important a good bass foundation is. The SBX solves this problem in every way for me. The bass sounds is very clean and it reproduces upper bass freq with out muddieness. Lots of extra headroom. It can be overbearing to me a less than half volume. Matches up well with BX5's and some BX-8's a friend brought over.If your looking for better low end mixing this will slove the problem right away. I can't think of a feature they should have added. Very Happy!!
