Experience unparalleled bass performance with the McIntosh PS2K Powered Subwoofer. Crafted with meticulous precision and a profound passion for sound, the breathtaking PS2K is designed to elevate the listening experience of an already awe-inspiring home audio system by adding new depths of low frequency perfection.

The PS2K subwoofer leaves no room for compromise. Four 13″ woofers, or drivers, with massive magnets are the heart and soul of the PS2K. They utilize patented Low Distortion High Performance (LD/HP®) Magnetic Circuit Design, which significantly reduces distortion while increasing the driver’s power handling and efficiency.

PS2K’s four woofers, each driven by a dedicated 500 Watt Class D amplifier, unite to unleash a total power output of up to 2,000 Watts. The amplifiers are meticulously calibrated to minimize distortion and produce clear, tight bass with astonishingly low distortion in even the most expansive listening spaces.

The woofers are stacked atop the amplifier module, which features a power output meter that shows the total output of the PS2K. The enclosure baffle is nearly 1-1/2″ (3.8cm) thick to ensure ultimate rigidity and low vibration, and has a sealed box design to eliminate any potential port noises.

“Away from driver design, the new subwoofer features a variety of connectivity options. Whether you have a two-channel stereo system or a multi-channel home theatre setup, the PS2K is equipped with balanced and unbalanced stereo inputs and outputs, plus balanced and unbalanced subwoofer inputs and outputs. You can also daisy chain for further connectivity for users who prefer to use more than one PS2K in a singular system.

Further, the PS2K is kitted out with McIntosh’s own protection technologies for a more consistent, reliable sound. The American brand’s patented Power Guard tech monitors the input signal entering the amps to make “near-speed of light adjustments to prevent harsh sounding clipping in real-time, according to McIntosh. Something called “Sentry Monitor”, meanwhile, acts as a fuse-less short-circuit protection that clears the amp’s output stage before the current exceeds safe operating levels and automatically resets when operating conditions go back to normal.

Unveiled at CEDIA Expo in sunny Denver, Colorado, the PS2K sports a black gloss finish with a carbon trim and aluminium base, alongside glide feet for hard floors and spikes for carpets.” – What Hi-Fi?
