Sunfire HRSIW8 In-Wall Subwoofer Awarded 2012 BEST Award by CE Pro Magazine

Sunfire®, a specialist in the design, manufacture and marketing of luxury home theater audio products, today announced that its HRSIW8 in-wall subwoofer has been named a 2012 BEST Award winner by CE Pro Magazine. The award was presented to Sunfire at the CE Pro Booth at CEDIA EXPO 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

According to Paul Starkey, Sunfire’s Chief Marketing Officer, “We’re always thinking of new ways to give homeowners everything they could ever want from their home entertainment experience. With the HRSIW8, we’re offering a subwoofer that is simple to install, features a dynamic and accurate bass, and doesn’t take up a large amount of room. We’re thrilled to have the HRSIW8 recognized by CE Pro.”

The HRSIW8 was chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and the editors of CE Pro, to join an exclusive group of products deemed the most noteworthy. As a CE Pro BEST Winner, the HRSIW8 will be featured in the November issue of CE Pro and will be featured on

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”.
