Open Box ~ Bravus II 8D Powered Subwoofer - Gloss Black

With a box just over 12 inches on a side, the 8D looks like a lightweight. That's why the amount of bass this tough little subwoofer puts out is almost criminal. The key? A tour de force consisting of 300 watts of power, a single active down-firing 8-inch driver and twin 8-inch side-firing passive radiators on the sides.

You might be tempted to dismiss the new 8D based on how compact it is, even if you need a subwoofer to fit a fair-to-middling-sized space. Hey, we all make mistakes! This unit has guts, with one active down-firing 8-inch driver teamed with two 8-inch side-firing passive radiators. Add 300 powerful watts and the surprising 8D will bring your movie audio and music alive with brazen and brawny bass.

We've upgraded our legendary line of Bravus II subwoofers in other ways too, to make the linchpin of your home theater system better still. "What can we add?" we asked ourselves. We finally realized we had the math all wrong: We needed to subtract. That way you’d get subwoofers that are radically simpler to install and configure, even more complimentary to your decor and so price-competitive your piggy bank will squeal with delight.

So we took away the advanced features that you’re probably not using anyway—remote control, display bezel and onboard EQ configuration. We figured you can use your receiver to customize the subwoofer's sound right down to the nuts and bolts, so you don’t need to dole out the dollars for pricey fine-tuning features on the subwoofers.

What's left? The good stuff. A deep, musical bottom that serves as the bedrock for a mountain of sound. Minimalist presence that’s about handsome looks, not chewing up space. More power where we could work it in. And the potential to be cited for violation of local noise ordinances if you take the Bravus II to the limits.

You can also make the 8D wireless by pairing it up with the new Aperion Home Audio Link!

  • Single down-firing active 8" aluminum driver

Single Active & Dual 8" Passive High-Excursion Custom Aluminum Drivers
We designed Bravus with dual custom aluminum drivers for efficient high-performance. One part rigid precision, one part low bass extension - shake well with a healthy helping of linearity, and you're left with three drivers to take your music and movies to new depths. Aluminum offers the perfect blend of strength and mass to keep the class D digital amp operating efficiently. Couple this with a heavy duty rubber surround and a precision motor structure and you get bass that is deep and linear. To make things even better, we packed three drivers in a small gorgeous enclosure so your Bravus 8" sub offers the performance of a larger sub but takes up less space.

Detachable Power Cord w/ Switchable Voltage
We make it easy to upgrade your cord or take your subwoofer on the road. No matter if you're in Los Angeles or Lisbon, you can easily switch between 110V and 220V power. Just plug in the correct cord, switch the voltage and enjoy. One caveat, though -- We're not responsible for international noise ordinances, so tread carefully and bring bribe money.

Line Level Inputs
Every Aperion subwoofer comes standard with an LFE line level input that connects to any receiver’s subwoofer pre-out. Or, if you don't have a sub-out connection, use the left and right low level inputs with the low level outputs from your pre-amp or receiver.

High Level Inputs
Hook your new subwoofer up to any receiver or amplifier! If you don’t have a sub-out connection on your receiver, you can use the left and right speaker outputs to make setup a snap.

Small Internally Braced ¾" HDF Sealed Enclosure
Powerful bass needs a sturdy cabinet. Every Bravus 8D subwoofer is built out of strong 3/4" HDF and internally braced to reduce cabinet vibration to nearly nothing.

Timeless Design & Furniture-Grade Finish
Each of our Bravus subwoofers features a timeless design aesthetic and is beautifully finished in either real cherry wood or high gloss piano black lacquer, allowing them to effortlessly blend into your decor. This first-rate cabinetry unites the acoustic qualities of only the most expensive subwoofers with a furniture-grade finish so handsome your coffee table will be jealous.

Leveling Floor Spikes and Footers
Included with each Bravus subwoofer is a set of metal floor spikes with footers and a set of rubber feet. Use the metal spikes on carpet for tighter bass by decoupling the sub from the floor. If you have hard floors, use the footers with your metal spikes or use the included rubber feet to improve bass response and protect your surfaces from scratches or dents.

Acoustically Transparent Grille
Nothing stands between you and your sound. We designed a sonically invisible grille that not only looks great, but also protects your precious woofers from curious fingers, claws or snouts.

Customer Reviews


One word - Amazing!!!

Posted on 6/10/2017 For all those who want the best sub without breaking the bank or neighbors' patience this is the sub. Be prepared to be amazed by the packaging and velvet bag it comes out of. The gloss finish is outstanding rivaling subs that cost thousands. Then the sound! Excellent for family room setup that don't need theater level bass. Goes down to 28-30Hz plenty good for daily stuff. The beauty of it is the musical performance... very musical, articulate and stops at a dime, no bloat or overhang here. Just for comparison have high end Velodyne DDS 12 and Emotiva Xref12 for my HT.
