Little-Roy is a compact high-end subwoofer. Bernd Timmermanns has developed this woofer. The Little Roy is home to two Wavecor woofers SW178WA01 and two Wavecor passive radiators.

We warmly recommend this loudspeaker.

Our kit with amplifier module consists of

  • 2x Wavecor Subwoofer SW178WA01, 8 Ohm
  • 2x Wavecor PR178WA01 Passive Radiator
  • Mivoc subwoofer module AM 80 MK II, 80W
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x2.5 mm2, transparent

very deep bass

If you want to get a very deep reaching bass, additional weights for the passive radiator are recommended. In this case you should buy washers with outer diameter of about 40 mm with a 6.5 mm hole.
