About The GoldenEar ForceField 3 Subwoofer
The GoldenEar ForceField 3 is a compact subwoofer with a unique and attractive cabinet shape, with its non-parallel cabinet walls (the top is narrower than the bottom when viewed from the front). The non-parallel sides help the ForceField 3 to achieve extraordinarily deep and tuneful bass that is ideal for music and movies. The cutting-edge amplifier design employs state-of-the-art DSP control for frequency shaping so the subwoofer produces accurate, consistent and musical bass performance.
GoldenEar’s award-winning ForceField 3 subwoofer has been engineered from the ground up to combine subtle musical detail with earth-shaking high-impact power; all in attractive, compact enclosures which blend well into any environment. GoldenEar’s engineering team has the benefit of over 20 years experience designing some of the world’s best sounding, most highly reviewed and best-selling powered subwoofers. Paramount in their design goals was the importance of not sacrificing sound quality in order to achieve unrealistic size goals. But just as key was the importance of compact size that did not make the subwoofers any larger than necessary in order to achieve uncompromising, state-of-the-art, sonic performance. You will instantly see and hear how well these seemingly conflicting goals were brilliantly both achieved with the combination of creative thinking and cutting-edge engineering prowess.
A complete GoldenEar sub/sat system consisting of four SuperSat 3s, a SuperSat 3C and a ForceField 3 powered subwoofer make up the superlative and award winning SuperCinema 3, a sub/sat 5.1 multichannel system that has the power to fill an intimate room or a large grand space with glorious sound for your music or cinematic enjoyment.
The Sophisticated Technology Behind the ForceField Powered Subwoofers
Of course, to achieve a tour de force like the ForceFields, the basic concept is absolutely key. The ForceFields combine high-power forward-radiating ultra-long-throw sub-bass drivers coupled to downward-firing quadratic planar infrasonic radiators. This brings together the superior transient response and detail of moderately sized active drivers with the subsonic capability and extraordinary room-filling coupling of large diaphragm radiators. In fact the radiators, in combination with the slot-loading to the floor, approximate the near perfect impedance match to the air of a well-tuned transmission line. This combination is also very flexible in terms of room-placement requirements.
Next, the engineering team spent countless hours developing a unique high-power 1000 Watt DSP controlled class D digital amplifier. This sophisticated amp has a Programmable Logic Device (PLD) based state machine with a nearly instantaneous 278 nanosecond update time, to perfectly manage a myriad of functions including: soft-clipping, DC offset control, output-stage anti-saturation protection and discrete multi-band limiting. The DSP control also allows for very precise equalization. In addition, intrinsic THD is extremely low, so very little negative feedback is required, thus ensuring optimum transient performance.
Finally, a unique cabinet shape was chosen, both for its undeniable aesthetic appeal, as well as its performance enhancing attributes. The non-parallel cabinet walls dramatically cut down and help control internal reflections, as well as stiffen the cabinet structure itself. The end result is stunning impact, superbly musical bass articulation and breathtaking infrasonic capabilities that can powerfully pressurize a room in a way that leaves listeners breathless. The unique achievement of the ForceFields means they can bring the power of T Rex into your living room, as well as the musical subtlety of YoYo Ma or Sting.
Our Take On The GoldenEar ForceField 3 Subwoofer
Compact subwoofers generally compromise on two things, bass extension & power output. Put simply, they just don’t kick butt. And, we get it, people want their speakers & subwoofers to disappear as much as possible. What if we could tell you that you can have everything you want including high power and great bass extension in a subwoofer so compact you almost have to send a search party out to find it. The GoldenEar ForceField 3 is that subwoofer. Check these stats: 1,000 Watt DSP controlled digital amplifier, 8” active and 9 x 11” passive drivers and bass extension that goes down to 18Hz! All in a sub that is only 292mm high and 289mm wide. Sounds almost unbelievable and yet we know ForceField 3 exists because we stock it and can demonstrate its totally kick-ass sound if you’d like to come on down to Audio Trends and check it out.
