The new VW-8 is an ultra-compact but awesomely

frequencies, the VW-8 will integrate beautifully and
easily with any compact, high performance home
theatre system by using the variable volume control,

45Hz and 150Hz, and its phase switch features.
Stereo line and LFE inputs allow the VW-8 to
contribute a seismic dimension to both music
and multichannel movie systems. For added
