Sunfire HRSIW8 In-Wall Subwoofer Awarded 2012 EXC!TE Award By CustomRetailer Magazine

 Sunfire®, a specialist in the design, manufacturing and marketing of luxury home theater audio products, today announced its HRSIW8 in-wall subwoofer has been named a 2012 EXC!TE Award winner by CustomRetailer Magazine. The award will be presented to Sunfire on Sept. 6 at the 2012 EXC!TE Awards Party at CEDIA EXPO 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

According to Paul Starkey, Sunfire’s Chief Marketing Officer, “Sunfire continues to innovate and prove that it is the premier maker of audiophile-quality home theater speakers and subwoofers.  Our groundbreaking in-wall subwoofers feature Sunfire’s patented StillBass™ anti-shake technology, so no other manufacturer can match the discrete installation profile and incredible sound quality of the HRSIW8.”

CustomRetailer Magazine presents its annual EXC!TE Awards to the best product  s available to the industry. Each year, CustomRetailer invites nominations of products that stand out for being innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented for the custom installation professional. Past winners stand out as particularly impressive, considering the unique challenges custom installers face every day on the job. The impact these products have had on the industry is felt in the installers' productivity, the dealers' profitability, the clients' satisfaction and the industry's vitality.

The Sunfire HRSIW8 is an in-wall dual-driver 8” subwoofer that features the brand’s patented Stillbass™ anti-shake technology that virtually eliminates mechanical vibration, improving bass definition while helping to contain the bass to the room in which it is mounted.  The Stillbass technology, coupled with Sunfire’s trademark High Back-emf designed woofers, helps provide pounding audiophile-grade bass from a subwoofer that easily retrofits into a standard 16” on-center stud bay.

The HRSIW8’s external rack-mount amplifier is an evolution of the Sunfire digital amplifier used in the company’s SDS subwoofer line.  Using Sunfire’s Frequency Filtration Design (FFD) for high fidelity bass, the amp delivers 520W of power with near zero distortion. A wide range of filtering adjustments are included as well as DSP with room equalization and a remote control that provides one-touch access to preset equalizer modes.

The continuing “Science of Sunfire” is the direct result of a design philosophy originally pioneered by Bob Carver that has become codified by the brand. This unique approach to design has resulted in amazingly compact high performance subwoofers that combine the best electronics and acoustics with specialized, premium materials to exemplify the mantra of “small form, high fidelity with high output and reliability”.
