No Box Necessary with DLS Performance OA Subwoofers

The DLS OA8 subwoofer is rated at 350W Max and 150W RMS featuring a Single 8 ohm voice coil. This little woofer looks small but can pack a punch and even better do it with out the need of an enclosure. Quality performance and superb sound reproduction is all you will get from this DLS OA series subwoofer.

Sometimes a big bulky enclosure is just not ideal. Not many woofers can really can themselves “free-air” woofers but the DLS Performance OA series subwoofers are capable of doing just that. They are equipped with a dual magnet system, stable basket, and dual spiders to be able to handle the hard demands that a woofer must go through when installed without an enclosure. The nice thing is that these woofer will also work perfectly in an enclosure if you wish to do so. They are available in an 8″, 10″ and 12″ sizes, with all of them featuring a non-pressed paper reinforced woofer cone and foam surround for added rigidity, longevity, higher excursion capabilities and performance. When searching for a true “free-air” speaker you won’t find a better sounding subwoofer at a better price.

  • Paper cone and heavy surround.
  • Dual magnets.
  • Can be used for “Free Air”, or in a box.
