Tannoy DS15i Sub Passive Subwoofer
The flagship passive subwoofer in the Definition Install range, the DS15i SUB combines low frequency power, speed and depth for a breath taking movie and and music experience. Designed to underpin systems based on the DS8i and DS12i at the front end, the DS15i combines a 380 mm (15.00”) high power professional driver in a substantially built 76litre port loaded cabinet. The port loading is via a low front slot, giving immersive deep bass and allowing close to wall placement during the install.
The DS15i SUB driver is set into a 36mm front baffle and is capable of handling 600Watt average power, 1200Watt programme material and enormous 2400Watt peaks. The DS15i SUB achieves a class leading sensitivity of 96dB/Watt, giving it 130dB peak SPL output. Capable of driving LFE or bass reinforcement in a medium to large rooms on its own, Tannoy recommends a pair of DS15i SUB’s for even smoother base reproduction and four DS15i SUB’s for those demanding the ultimate is smooth, deep and impactful bass.

Finished in rugged textured black paint, the enclosure is fitted with recessed, gold plated binding posts, eight M10 inserts for off-floor mounting and four rubber feet. The DS15i SUB offers class-leading performance and is the perfect partner to any high-specification Definition Install system.
