When space is at a premium, the Horizon 250-UT truly makes its mark.  At just 1.5″ deep, the Hz250-UT delivers excellent performance and pin-point clarity by utilizing Leon’s exclusive 2.5″ aluminum cone woofers and cloth dome tweeters.  This compact speaker produces a wide sound stage with extension and accuracy below 120Hz to pair seamlessly with any Leon subwoofer.

Aaros Commercial Subwoofers

As theater-quality sound makes its way into multipurpose commercial spaces, the need for refined, clean reproduction of low frequencies becomes extremely important. With solid billet aluminum baffles and highly specialized drivers, Leon’s Aaros Commercial Series subwoofers are incredibly compact and offer more tonal balance than traditional large subs. Available in custom colors, and designed for in-room and in-wall applications, Leon’s unique line of subwoofers can be easily placed or hidden away completely.

Measuring only 12.5″ tall x 14.5″ wide x 4.5″ deep, Leon’s revolutionary ACS10-UT, Aaros 10″ ultra-thin subwoofer, delivers extreme versatility and impactful low end to any space.  Its slim profile allows it to “stow or show” and be used with a down-firing conversion kit for flexible placement. Featuring a solid billet aluminum baffle and back, with powerful output and multiple custom options, this highly refined sub integrates seamlessly into any room while controlling the impact of the most demanding presentations. The ACS10-UT is easily convertible to a down-firing position to fit under a couch or hide away in any cabinet. To perfectly complement any commercial space, the sub can also be custom finished to match any paint color or hardwood.

At less than 4″ deep, the ACS8-IW, Aaros 8″ in wall sub, redefines the possibility of large bass from a small enclosure. Soundly constructed to prevent unwanted resonance, this in-wall subwoofer is ideal for commercial office and hospitality applications where no floor space is available for a traditional sub. Its polished low frequencies will complement any sound bar without distracting the neighbors. With color-matched perforated metal or fabric grills, the ACS8-IW stands out by blending in.

Incredibly compact and offering more tonal balance than traditional large subs, the ACS8-400 powered cube subwoofer features an 8″ rigid, long throw driver powered by an ultra-efficient 400W on-board amplifier to produce fast, tight and musical bass. Available in satin black or pearl white, and complete with fully adjustable crossover and phase controls, Leon’s A8-400 offers extreme performance and versatility in any space.

To complement the ACS10-UT and ACS8-IW, Leon’s L3-1K, 1,000 watt Class A/B subwoofer amplifier, delivers the power, finesse and flexibility that the subwoofers deserve. The amplifier naturally reproduces tight musical tones necessary for critical two-channel listening, and effortlessly controls the impact of the most demanding movie tracks. It features shelf pads or rack mount ears for placement in any scenario.  For a truly flexible solution, the L3-1K subwoofer amplifier offers adjustable crossover, variable phase, and tunable EQ, allowing installers to tailor the sound of the sub to match any room.

The Aaros Commercial Subwoofers are now available for an MSRP of $2,295 for one ACS10-UT or $3,495 for two and $1,895 for one ACS8-IW or $2,895 for two. Both subs are sold with Leon’s L3-1K Class A/B subwoofer amplifiers.
