The Continuum woofer module using the CSS, SDX10 by Jeff Bagby.
If you’ve been reluctant to add a subwoofer and hoped for a traditional 3-way based Continuum system, Jeff has the answer. This woofer add-on was voiced for the Continuum, and it should integrate well with most any 5.25″ based satellite SPL in the 83-84dB range. The Viva Voce, Piccolo, and of course the Continuum II are all great candidates.
The SDX10 is a true subwoofer. Subwoofers are not usually considered in a 3-way design, but Jeff found the upper-frequency response and SPL ideal as a mate for the Continuum.
Because of the 1st order slopes on the satellites, the crossover is somewhat universal.
Optional – The system can be built as a sealed box (acoustic suspension) or vented (bass reflex). Please read the write-up at the link below. It might help you decide. We are also happy to assemble the crossovers for you if you haven’t perfected your soldering skills.
The kit includes a pair of each product (photo above shows a single). The kit includes 2 set of terminal posts per cabinet. An input set at the bottom and then an output set at the top of the satellite connections. Here is the list of parts for your full kit:
