Community D10SUB
Distributed Design 10" Ceiling Mount Subwoofer


The Community D10SUB ceiling mount subwoofer provides powerful, high-impact bass response intended to augment any combination of Distributed Design Series full-range models. By including a complement of D10SUB’s into a distributed system, musical results that equal or exceed that of much larger and more costly surface-mount systems can readily be achieved. The D10SUB’s clean, clear bass response provides a compelling attraction for shoppers in a retail environment, and a memorable experience for bar, pub and restaurant patrons.

Dependent on program content and the size of the full-range Distributed Design models, the ratio of D10SUB’s to full-range models may vary from as few as 1:6 to as many as 1:1. For example, one D10SUB will provide strong supporting bass response for six D4’s or D5’s, while four D10SUB’s will better complement six of the more powerful D8’s or D10’s.

Like all Distributed Design models, the D10SUB installs quickly and easily. Exclusive Drop-Stop™ and Twist-Assist™ Tabs allow single-handed placement to speed the installation process. Drop-Stop’s spring-loaded legs support the back can on the included tile rails and snap-on C-ring, so that the installer no longer needs to hold the can against the tile while tightening the clamps. Twist-Assist performs a similar function for the baffle assembly: when the loudspeaker back cans are pre-installed into a conduit system for termination at a later date, a simple twist of the baffle into the back can brings the Twist-Assist clips together, supporting the baffle assembly while the installer fastens the screws.

The front-face wattage selector switch enables quick adjustment of levels, while the high-power internal autoformer permits full power output with 70V or 100V lines. A variety of installation accessories are available to accommodate different ceiling materials. The D10SUB face-only assembly and D10 back can are also available for separate purchase.
