THIEL Introduces the SmartSub USS and SS2.2 Subwoofers #CES2012




THIEL unveils the world’s most intelligent subwoofer systems
(Lexington, KY) December 20
2011 — THIEL Audio ( has announced the introduction of the
next generation of SmartSub® products, the THIEL USS and the THIEL SS2.2. As the first and only company
ever to achieve such a feat, THIEL SmartSub technology’s real-time integration circuitry converts subwoofer and
companion loudspeakers into a unified system—quite possibly the most important advancement in bass
reproduction since the subwoofer’s invention. Both models will also carry forward THIEL’s patented engineering
achievements in the subwoofer category that virtually eliminate unbalanced response due to room interactions as
well as thermal compression distortion common to other subwoofer designs.
THIEL SmartSubs deliver flawlessly detailed bass response down to 20Hz.
“The most important design goal for these subwoofers was to achieve perfect
synergy between the main speakers and subwoofer, as if they were a single
system engineered together,” explained THIEL president and co-founder
Kathy Gornik. “The culmination of everything we have sought to achieve in the
subwoofer category has been brought to bear with tremendous success in
these two completely unique products,” Gornik added. Second generation
SmartSubs utilize a new amplifier topology engineered for high performance
and reliability.
The USS incorporates a robust 550-watt amplifier with a highly efficient
switching power supply driving a proprietary 10-inch aluminum woofer
boasting long excursion and immeasurably low levels of distortion. The SS2.2
utilizes two of the same 10-inch woofers powered by 1000 watts. The
companion PXO5 module enables either SmartSub to blend perfectly with any
THIEL main speaker system. THIEL specifically designs and hand assembles
a unique PXO5 to match any THIEL loudspeaker model. Only THIEL
SmartSubs can deliver nuance and detail without sacrificing impact and power. Listeners will enjoy an
unprecedented level of realism and emotional connection to their music and movies.
The THIEL USS will be available in three finishes, Natural Cherry, Dark Cherry, and Black Ash. The SS2.2 is
available in THIEL’s full array of standard and custom hardwood veneers and features stainless steel hardware
and heavy duty spikes borrowed from THIEL’s flagship CS3.7 loudspeaker. THIEL SmartSubs are expected to
ship to authorized dealers on January 16
, 2012. MSRP for the THIEL USS is $3490 USD. MSRP for the
SS2.2 is $6390 USD. MSRP for the PXO5 module is $500.
