Aerial SW12

The Aerial Acoustics Model SW12 produces deep, pitch-accurate, truly expressive bass providing the essential foundation for great music and film experiences. Its design reflects our uncompromising approach to creating a low frequency reproducer that is at home in the best pure music systems and in mixed media, multi-channel systems for playback of music, movies and more. The SW12 communicates bass with full weight and authority, providing solid, precise, impactful bass extending effortlessly to below 20Hz. It is capable of recreating an instrument’s unique timbre, an intricate bass melody, and deep, visceral impact.

One Model SW12 provides sufficient output for even large rooms, while two or more units are often combined in a single system to further optimize bass quality and to preserve spatial cues. Extensive controls allow for tailoring the response relative to the system’s main loudspeakers, to the room environment, and to the program material.

An optional base is available (shown in photo).

All Aerial loudspeaker systems are designed and constructed with fanatical attention to quality and detail. Decades of design and manufacturing experience have taught us that craftsmanship and technology go hand-in-hand when creating products of uncompromising performance and genuine long-term value. World class manufacturing techniques and production equipment are employed, complemented by the work of skilled craftsmen when only experienced hands will do.

Aerial Acoustics. Every detail matters.
