Descend Series DN15 15” Subwoofer

Monumentally Uncompromised Performance

Ultra-Performance, 1500W 15" Subwoofer with Dual 15" Bass Radiators

Massive, uncompromised bass performance, from our most powerful subwoofer ever. Unique technologies add unprecedented clarity, power and seamless system integration.

3XR™ Architecture More Bass from the Same Space

The DN15’s unique 3XR Architecture provides triple the bass-producing surface area of a traditional 15” ported subwoofer. This extra surface area moves more air, resulting in monumental low end. And because 3XR doesn’t use ports, it also provides crystal-clear sound with no port noise distortion.

3XR™ Architecture for as much bass as two ported 18” subwoofers

The DN15’s 3XR Architecture provides triple the bass-producing radiating surface area of a traditional 15” ported subwoofer. This extra surface area moves more air, enabling the DN15 to play as loud and low as a two similarly-sized 18” ported subwoofers. And because 3XR doesn’t use ports, DN15 also provides massive, crystal-clear bass with no port noise distortion.

Passive Radiators for louder, lower, cleaner bass

As the core technology behind Descend’s 3XR Architecure, its passive bass radiators enable the DN15 to play as loud and low as two 18” ported subwoofers without unwanted port noise distortion. Passive radiators also deliver a smooth frequency response like a sealed sub, but with the port-like ability to play louder and lower in a smaller enclosure.

What you get is the best of both worlds: louder, clearer bass than a ported sub from a smaller enclosure than a sealed sub.

Massive Impact Absolutely Uncompromised

Powered by Class H digital amplification, and with an advanced 56-bit DSP that includes three custom EQ modes, DN15 plays exceptionally impactful bass down to 20Hz.

Custom Class H Digital Amplification for pure, commanding performance down to 20Hz

The DN15’s advanced 1500W peak Class H digital amplifier delivers continuous power to cleanly reproduce sustained bass below 20Hz. With real-time monitoring and adjustments to the sliding rail voltage, the DN15 delivers considerably higher power during short, transient peaks such as bass drum kicks and on-screen artillery blasts.

Advanced 56-Bit DSP for distortion-free longevity and impact

The advanced 56-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) extends and improves the DN15’s bass response. The DSP tightly monitors and controls the woofer system to prevent distortion and woofer damage at ultra-high volumes with a minimum of audible artifacts.

Built-in EQ Modes for the right sound every time

With three built-in performance EQs modes, the DN15 can be optimized to your room and listening preferences, and adjusted to match whatever you’re listening to.
