Weighing in at no less than 41kg, the Perlisten D12s subwoofer is no lightweight. Designed to produce the thunderous LFE soundtracks of modern movies, it is also extremely adept at reproducing the fine nuances hidden in such low bass, usually ignored by most subwoofers. Its speed and agility is betrayed by its appearance, making it a surprising performer in many ways.

The long-throw 12" driver is designed and made by Perlisten, and claim a +/-30mm linear excursion - look out JL!

The sealed cabinet helps produce a smooth in-room response compared to ported subwoofers.

The downloadable control app allows set up and adjust of the D12s from your listening position. There's three modes to choose from (cut, boost, or THX), and set the 10-band parametric equaliser to help smooth out its response in your room. Three individual presets allow easy switching between movie/music listening.

A single D12s subwoofer on its own is rated THX Ultra, but achieve a THX Dominus rating if used in pairs, capable of effortlessly filling large rooms with cinema levels of sub bass.

A more detailed spec sheet is available here.

The D12s provides unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs, as well as balanced XLR inputs and outputs for both left and right channels, supporting daisy chaining and left/right stereo/mono use.

Other than a power on/off switch, there are no rear controls on the D12s, all controls are via the app or the touch screen mounted on the top of the subwoofer for ease of use and installation.
