The XLS1000 is a true
It is easily capable
of out performing a majority of units costing
multiples more. A beautifully clean sound with very fast and tight
at either subtle volumes or at extra high SPL, reproducing
and detailed bass at frequencies down to the
subwoofer will exceed the requirements
for a majority of systems and rooms with both accuracy in
music and explosive effects for Home Theatre that will
shake your world! The incredible depth of bass goes
down below 18Hz in an enclosure of only 60 litres.
An eXtra-Long-Stroke 12" Peerless subwoofer
is used, set in the forward firing mode.

by a duplicate 12" rear mounted
Passive Radiator. This is a
non-powered "Drone Cone" that
utilises the low frequency energy within the box, similar to
a port but with some distinct advantages that improve
performance and specifications.
dual 12" design achieves superior audiophile sound with
lower than normally achievable frequency response for a
given sized enclosure, all without the air breathing distortion
normally associated with a vented enclosure used at such
low frequencies and high volume levels.

with most subwoofers, our 12" XLS kit comes with a
amplifier (see below).
However, we have also made available a version
with no cut-out
hole for the power amp. This is for those who wish to
amplify their sub with a high performance solution. Now, the
driver is capable of running on 300Wrms, long term, so any amplifier
will be suitable power wise. However, your choice must have
low frequency and subsonic specifications to utilize
performance achievable by this sub.
amplifiers are not good in the sub-sonic,
especially powering this 4ohm XLS driver. We also highly
recommend some low-frequency equalization to
tune the XLS1000
into your room. An easy solution is to utilise our high
at reasonable cost 200Wrms amplifier. This is a specially
Tweaked-Up subwoofer amplifier, manufactured to Stones Sound
specifications for driving the XLS range of subwoofers.
This optimised amplifier gives a high 200Wrms with very low distortion
excellent stability and specifications. We believe we have achieved
reasonably priced subwoofer and amplifier system with excellent
sub-sonic performance that would normally cost considerably more
compared to what's available. The XLS1000 looks and sounds like
premium audiophile package that will satisfy even the most
listener with its phenomenal performance.
