The Tapco SW-10 Active Studio Subwoofer literally picks up where the hugely popular Tapco S-5 Active Studio Monitors left off. This Mackie-designed compact subwoofer perfectly complements your Tapco S-Series studio monitors to provide tight, punchy low frequency sound. It's especially well suited to modern rock, hip-hop and dance music styles.


The SW-10 Active Studio Subwoofer employs an acoustic suspension design for tight, articulate bass, which provides an amazingly flat and linear low-frequency response down to 34 Hz. In other words, it's tight and low. Variable input sensitivity lets you adjust the volume so it's just right for your system. The onboard Active crossover is a Linkwitz-Riley design--usually found in much higher end speakers--providing a low end range of 55 Hz to 110 Hz at 24 dB/octave. The individual crossover controls for the left and right channels provide additional flexibility in surround sound applications with a subwoofer output and bass management (LFE). Finally, there's a polarity reverse switch for optimizing the performance of the SW-10 with the other speakers in your system.

I/O Low-down

The SW-10 bass speaker hooks up easily with any system. Left and right inputs are provided on both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors. The SW-10 also offers dual high-pass outputs (also on XLR and RCA connectors) for connecting active monitors like the S-5s and S-8s, or passive speakers through a separate power amplifier. The SW-10's crossover splits off all of the bass frequencies from the incoming audio signals and sends the mids and highs to separate studio monitors. This way, the SW-10 focuses on the boom, and the other speakers handle the rest for improved efficiency and overall clarity.

Protecting your investment

The Tapco SW-10 is tuned to maximize efficiency, but it can get hot if you run it loud for long periods. If the electronics get too hot, a thermal switch activates and shuts down the amplifier until it's cool again. A peak limiter circuit also monitors the amplifier output signal to guard against clipping and overloading the amplifier. This allows for loud punchy bass performance without distortion, and ensures long-term reliability.
