Basso™ is the Italian word meaning “low or deep bass”.
Basso is our Barrel Speaker™ subwoofer that reaches down to incredibly low bass notes with ease and accuracy. With a 500-watt outboard amplifier /equalizer, Basso™ provides plenty of power and control and will match seamlessly with any speaker system in any listening space.

Basso’s outboard Episode amplifier/equalizer allows for use in both indoor and outdoor applications. The electronics can be located safely in a protected indoor environment while the Barrel Speaker™ subwoofer component can be placed indoors or outdoors.

The Basso™ system includes a horizontal mounting cradle and for space-saving consideration can also be mounted vertically. The electronics provide for phasing adjustments to accommodate any placement option.

Basso’s woofer component is a robust, American made, 8-inch JL Audio subwoofer. JL Audio is highly regarded as one of the finest subwoofer manufactures today. For over 15 years, we have enjoyed a close relationship with JL Audio and have worked with them to acoustically optimize their woofers with our Barrel Speaker™ enclosures.
