GoldenEar’s award-winning ForceField Series subwoofers are engineered from the ground up to deliver subtle musical detail, well-extended bass, high-impact slam, and the solid foundation for an expansive soundstage — all from attractive, compact enclosures that easily fit into any environment.
The design brief was simple: achieve uncompromising, state-of-the-art subwoofer performance from the smallest-possible enclosures. Compared to previous models, the new GoldenEar ForceField 30 and 40 boast several significant sonic and cosmetic refinements.
Compact, Elegant Cabinet
Designed for Performance and Beauty.
GoldenEar BRX model-inspired curved top panel to better minimize cabinet resonances
Increased wall thickness prevents absorbing and smearing important bass transient information and impact
Perforated-metal grille affords improved sonic transparency and airflow
Gorgeous and subtle Satin-Black finish
Robust, Efficient Amplifier
Upgraded Electronics Platform Based on the Award-Winning SuperSub X/XXL.
GoldenEar SuperSub-inspired electronics with Analog Devices DSP affords flatter, more extended frequency response for cleaner, deeper bass with lower distortion
MOSFET output stage and improved implementation result in greater power-transfer efficiency
Necessary subwoofer Level and Low-Pass filter controls allow easy optimization for home theaters, hi-fi setups, and living environments
Optimized Driver Configuration
Superb Detail, Soul-Stirring Bass.
Ultra-Long-Throw Sub-Bass Driver
Superior transient performance for natural detail
Computer-optimized ultra-stiff fiber cone
Massive high-gauss magnet assembly
Quadratic Planar Infrasonic Radiator
Downward-firing pressure-coupled loading extends usable bass performance to the infrasonic region
Approximates the near-perfect impedance of a well-tuned transmission line, but with superior transient performance and control
Affords outstanding flexibility for room placement
The overall result is agile, musical, room-filling bass equally suited to thrilling soundtracks, stirring orchestral pieces, propulsive pop music, and everything in between. With the new ForceField 30 and ForceField 40, GoldenEar has achieved its mandates for any subwoofer:
To be subtle and invisible, allowing a string bass or a fighter jet’s roar to seem to come out of nowhere.
To do its job when the pluck of a bass guitar or a giant’s footsteps are supposed to rumble your soul.
