15" Down-Firing Subwoofer


One of many available options in the EMB II Subwoofer series features a very contemporary cabinet design and a down-firing design that isn’t obtrusive. Built from solid aircraft grade aluminum and expertly finished to your color preference, the craftsmanship of this compact subwoofer exudes luxury and performance.

Internally, the EMB15-DF utilizes a sealed design with a James 15” high excursion woofer with a patented dual gap magnet motor for high output and low distortion. An aluminum cone, Santoprene™ half-roll surround and cast aluminum frame ensure the system is ready for outdoor and marine applications with minor upgrades. The EMB15-DF subwoofer has been tuned to perform all the way down to an impressive 18Hz! Because it is a high power handling passive subwoofer, we recommend pairing it with our M1000 class D amplifier that provides 1000 watts of clean power and features a full DSP digital processor. You can power a total of 1 EMB15-DF subwoofer with a single M1000 amplifier.

For outdoor/marine applications, order the EMB15-DF-M.
