New Mini Mirage® Subwoofers Designed to Pack Serious Bass Punch

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 7, 2008) — In order to achieve dynamic home theater and music listening experiences, you need a subwoofer. Most people, however, are turned off by its big, boxy appearance, often referring to it as the eyesore in the corner Well, thanks to the new cube-shaped Mirage MM-8 and MM-6 mini subwoofers, those days are gone.   

According to Martin Tustin-Fuchs, Mirage product line manager, the MM-8 and MM-6 are the smallest high powered subwoofers the company has ever introduced. In fact, these models offer powerful, deep bass that can be compared to larger, more expensive designs. 

Get ready to be moved because these mini subwoofers are sure mighty, packing premium materials and advanced technologies that let you experience the full impact of your music and movies, he said. And, while you'll feel their thunder, they won't steal it away from your room. Both neatly tuck away in a corner or under a table out of view. 

While the MM-8 and MM-6 vary slightly when it comes to cabinet, amp and driver sizes, they share the same features. Both models, according to Tustin-Fuchs, have an exceptional cosmetic fit and finish, constructed of rigid medium density fiberboard and finished in a high-gloss black, achieved via seven layers of hand-sanded polyurethane. 

Unified line and sub inputs, as well as a variable low-pass filter with bypass mode, let the subwoofers blend with Mirage speakers, as well as other designs, using the built-in crossover or home theater receiver. A 0 to 360-degree phase control integrates either subwoofer with other speakers. An auto-on switch turns the subwoofers on or off automatically, based on the presence of a bass signal. Finally, a proprietary protection circuit allows the MM-8 and MM-6 subwoofers to deliver clear bass at all volume levels. 

A 9-inch cube, the MM-8 subwoofer employs a 1200-watt amplifier, an 8-inch woofer and two 8-inch passive radiators. All three drivers have a black anodized aluminum cone with an inverted Ribbed Elliptical Surround, a proprietary design that increases excursion and reduces distortion. The MM-6 subwoofer, which is an 8-inch cube, uses the same high quality driver materials, but has an 800-watt amplifier, a 6.5-inch woofer and dual 6.5-inch passive radiators.       

Slated to hit the specialty retail market in October, the Mirage MM-8 and MM-6 will be sold for $800* (U.S. MSRP) and $600* (U.S. MSRP), respectively.
