Elac Varro PS500-BK Premium 15“ 500W Powered Subwoofer

About the ELAC Varro PS500-BK

Bold bass from a big 15" woofer, plus handy app control

ELAC's value-priced Varro Premium subwoofers offer solid bass performance for music, game soundtracks, and movies. And they work with a free mobile app for convenient control using an Apple or Android smartphone. The PS500-BK uses a big 15" front-firing woofer in a ported enclosure, powered by a 500-watt built-in BASH amplifier. Its bass output extends way down into those frequencies you can feel but not hear.

Subwoofer setup made easy

I'm a huge fan of subwoofers that use smartphone control apps. It's a game-changer, because you can sit in the "sweet spot" in your listening room, centered between your favorite pair of speakers, and dial in the bass until it's blended in just right. ELAC's Sub Control 3.0 app lets you adjust the volume and fine-tune crossover and phase settings remotely, but it takes setup convenience a step further with its Auto EQ feature: using a series of test tones and your phone's built-in microphone, it automatically tunes itself to your listening space for clean, accurate bass response.
