L-Acoustics Introduces SB10i Compact Subwoofer

by | Audio, Gear, News, Production

L-Acoustics has announced the launch of its newest addition to the SB lineup, the SB10i, designed to deliver the same sonic signature of the company’s larger subs but from a scaled-down enclosure design.

“The L-Acoustics R&D teams took on the challenge of designing a low-frequency enclosure with the industry-recognized L-Acoustics sound in a living room-proportioned enclosure,” says L-Acoustics Product Manager Germain Simon. “Even though it may sound like it defies the laws of physics, our new SB10i is a brilliant realization of that objective. It condenses the full power of an SB Series sub into an incredibly small, efficient package that will fit into any environment where a visually discreet yet high-performance system is desired.”

Equipped with a single 10-inch driver and stated 27 Hz bandwidth limit with 124 dB maximum SPL output, the SB10i measures 6.7 x 21.3 x 21.3 inches (H x W x L) and weighs 33 pounds. Sonically corresponding with L Acoustics X4i and 5XT compact coaxial loudspeakers, the new sub has a discreet design.

An integrated “tech face” contains all connectors and mounting points in one panel, so mounting hardware, cables, and connectors can be hidden regardless of where or how the SB10i is installed: freestanding on a shelf or tucked away under a couch, chair, or architectural feature.

“There has been increasing demand in the residential and commercial markets for audio systems that give the same experience as being at a dynamic, vivacious live show,’” says Nick Fichte, Global Business Manager for L-Acoustics Creations. “With the launch of the new SB10i, we now have the perfect aesthetically unobtrusive subwoofer that delivers the impactful low-frequency punch that is a hallmark of our renowned festival and touring sound systems. The fact that it’s understated enough to be placed under a chair or a couch will be an unexpected bonus for residential and commercial projects alike.”

The new SB10i is available for order now, with volume shipments scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2022. Click here for more specifics and here to view the launch video.
