With a potent 10″ element and 200 powerful watts in the built-in amplifier, the MALMÖ SUB 10 can easily bring life to an ordinary living room, and it delivers a tight, precise and musical bass that puts the finishing touch on your sound experiences. The finish is simple and elegant, and the MALMÖ SUB 10 is rock-solid built, so you can look forward to many years of fat bass in your stereo or surround setup.

MALMÖ SUB 10 would be an obvious choice for a satellite/subwoofer system, for example together with the compact FORUS 5. You can also use MALMÖ SUB 10 together with other speaker models and smaller floor speakers, both from Argon Audio and from other manufacturers.

MALMÖ SUB 10 is compatible with any amplifier or receiver equipped with a pre-out or a dedicated subwoofer output (LFE). It offers adjustable settings for volume, crossover frequency, and phase, allowing you to achieve the perfect balance between the bass and the sound produced by your stereo or surround system’s main speakers.

Since the ear cannot determine the direction of deep tones, it is easy to place MALMÖ SUB 10 discreetly in the living room. If you put it in a corner, you also get extra bass, without putting more strain on the subwoofer. A corner location increases the sound pressure from the subwoofer, since the sound is acoustically amplified by both walls and floors. The downward-facing bass port makes it extra easy to place the subwoofer. Try different places in the room and place the subwoofer where you get the best result.
