There are three models of Sumiko Subwoofers (S.0, S.5 and S.9) which differ for dimensions and power; however, even in the smallest model the sound is very deep in comparison with the competitors’ products. Besides the innovative design, the excellent sound quality and a competitive price, these high end Subwoofers stand out for being able to integrate with every setup, offering infinite customization.

For his article the author Tyler Stripko has received a pair of S.9 Sumiko Subwoofers, carefully set up by Allan Haggar, Brand Manager for Sumiko Subwoofers and Mike Russo, Regional Sales Manager for Fine Sounds Group.

The design is referred to as elegant, detached from the “boring box” shapes of traditional subwoofers; the test has been made with a home theatre system of property and with a setup composed by a 5.2 system of Sonus faber Olympica (Olympica III for the front, Olympica Center and Olympica I for the surrounding).

In both cases the timbre and sound quality are reported as stunning: in the Symphonic Dances by Rachmaninoff they were able to listen to the single strokes on the snare drum, and every beat was emphasized by its own reverberation. 

Tyler Stripko wanted to test the two Sumiko Subwoofers also in a multi-channel system, by playing a Linkin Park Audio-DVD of the Reanimation Live. Here his comment:

"The bass was incredibly tight and delineated. With a second sub in the mix bass depth increased nicely as well. While I always knew that having multiple subwoofers is almost always better than having just one, I had never experienced it in my listening room until now."

According to the author, getting to know the Sumiko Subwoofers is “a revelation”. The product is pleasing from every point of view: from the design, to the sound and power.
