    Aria In-Wall Speaker, 10in Passive Subwoofer, 200 watts max (single)

    This in-wall bridge speaker transforms your smaller 2-way in-wall or satellite speakers into full range monitors. This compact, non-powered sub is not for replacing a decent powered LFE subwoofer, but to bridge the frequency gap often found when trying to pair smaller speakers to a high powered subwoofer.

    While typical compact 2-way speakers do a fine job of covering the high and mid frequency audio, they tend to taper off at the upper end of the low frequencies leaving a sonic gap between the highs and lows. You can adjust the upper end of your powered subs crossover to compensate, but that ends up sacrificing sound staging and depth of field as the directional upper low end frequencies start to collapse onto the location of your sub. Pair these with each of your main speakers for clearer, more well defined audio and wider sound staging. Bi-amp them with a capable amp or receiver to get the ultimate audio experience. It will be like having massive full range tower speakers without sacrificing any living space.

    Please note that the video on this page shows the specific instructions for installation of PID 6317. While this speaker mounts into the wall much differently than the one in the video, the video shows the basic steps, tools, and types of procedures that would be used for the installation of any in-wall or in-ceiling speaker, and is included on this page for reference purposes only. Please refer to the specific installation instructions of the in-wall or in-ceiling speaker you have for the specific dimensions and installation procedures.

    Anyone build an enclosure for it?
    Jonathan H on Feb 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've used 3 of these subs and they have all been mounted in existing cabinets on boats with good results. Mind you this is not a high-end product but for the money it works just fine. My biggest criticism are the input terminals as they are the funky spring loaded push type. As for enclosure, anywhere between 1 and 5 cubic feet works fine. For tighter bass I prefer a sealed box. I am driving all 3 of my installations with a 12V 250W RMS monoblock amp. Hard to go wrong with this sub at this price point...TJ
    I want to install two of your ARIA IN-WALL SPEAKER 10-INCH SUBWOOFER PASSIVE 200W MAX into my 7.2 system. Can I use one of the 200w amps?

    Unity 200-Watt Bridgeable Power Amp
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. Since most receivers put out the same sounds to both subwoofer outlets, I currently use this amp in bridge mode, and then split the output off to both subs. You get more power to each speaker that way.
    Is there a wall plate that is compatible with these speakers? The 7.2 plate available here is for powered subs, and these aren't powered so they run off standard speaker wire.
    Joseph W on Sep 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Are you familiar with keystone jacks? They can be used for speakers, hdmi, cat5, and F-type. You can use a keystone jack on a 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, slot wall plate.
    Good luck
    Is there a wall plate that is compatible with these speakers? The 7.2 plate available here is for powered subs, and these aren't powered so they run off standard speaker wire.
    A shopper on Sep 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It doesn't appear that there is a single wall plate available for a full complement of 9 speakers (7 plus 2)... even the 8.2 plate is short one since, as you point-out, the x.2 sub connectors are intended for powered subs, not these passive subs. However, there is an easy and less expensive solution if you are willing to use two plates... buy two 5.1 plates (product #4012) and you will have 10 available speaker pairs after ignoring the x.1 sub connectors. Apply a few nice labels and you should be good to go. You can also use the split plates, brush plate, or nose plates for much less money (and less congestion in the wall) if that is acceptable to your tastes. Good luck. I have two of these in a 5.2 arrangement and they fill robustly with home theater content.

    What power supply do i need to push this sub?
    A shopper on Jan 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Assume you mean what amp do you need? I used https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=18514 to good effect. Ran it in mono, bridged mode.
    If you scroll to the last thumbnail pic for this speaker it shows a circuit board mounted to it.
    Is this correct , does it come with a passive crossover ?
    A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this subwoofer. The crossover is set @ 490Hz. While not the ideal point for subs it is to prevent overworking the unit in a full range application. It is designed to work with a very wide range of satellite speakers.
    I have two in wall speakers currently that have 6.5" woofers and don't produce a lot of bass. If I add one of these, in series, without a dedicated amp will it augment the bass at all? How would I go about hooking it up if this makes sense?
    A shopper on Oct 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This speaker is passive (non-amplified) so it requires a dedicated amp. The "Unity 200-Watt Bridgeable Power Amp" is perfect with it. You connect the subwoofer out from your AV receiver to the amp and then speaker wire from the amp to this 10 in in-wall sub. I have this setup in my home and it puts out a really nice amount of bass.
    Can this be connected to a 2 way speaker, to essentially make a 3 way speaker? In other words, I have two 2-way speakers that I would like to connect a subwoofer to each. Can I just split the wire and connect this after the 2-way speakers?
    Jeremy H on Oct 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this in-wall speaker. Yes you can daisy-chain to your 2-way main speakers. This sub-woofer has a built-in crossover so only lows pass thru the sub. You mains will still run full range so it is not true 3-way but I think it will do what you need it to.
    We are needing a speaker system for a yoga studio. The entire space is 2,900 sqft which includes a foyer, studio and 2 bathrooms. The studio space will be approximately 1,100 sqft with 12ft concrete truss ceiling, hardwood floor and drywall walls with some glass. What would you recommend? The teachers will be playing music thru spotify on an ipad.

    Thank you,
    A shopper on Jun 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest our in-wall speakers. I assume for a yoga studio we do not need o pound the floor as with aerobics rooms. However to get full coverage throught the main studio I would plan as follows:
    Main studio
    2x 4929 (1 is OK but 2 will give you a nice warmth without having a hot spot)
    4x 18587 (mounted in the corners, again coverage is better than volume)
    4x18587 (2 in foyer, 1 in each bathroom)

    If instructors are using microphones you may want to step up to the Caliber or Alpha versions of these Aria speaker. Sub only available in Aria.

    Sounds great...once I figured out how to install
    After building two 5.1 systems in two rooms in my house, using all Monoprice in wall speakers and subwoofers, I had one problem....the subwoofers didn't work. Of course at first it was my ignorance of not knowing the difference between a passive vs active subwoofer. Once I realized what 'passive" meant, I had to go on a search for an amplifier for these subwoofers, in order to connect to my RCA pre amp plug on my receivers.

    Finding a amplifier that doesn't cost a ton was difficult. Also, since I didn't want to cut any other holes in my walls, I was looking for a rack amplifier instead of a wall plate amplifier. After what felt like an exhaustive search I found the Pyle PQA 2100 rack amplifier for $118 each. At 2 ohms it puts out 2100 total watts between 2 channels. However since these subwoofers are 8 ohm, that's what you need to pay attention to. At 8 ohms this amp puts out 230 watts per channel or 460 watts in a bridged mode. I found some other amps in bridged mode that put out just over 200 watts, but they were only about $20 cheaper than these.

    After purchasing these, I wasn't able to get the subwoofer to work. All I could hear was a humming noise letting me know that at least the power was going through it.

    After calling a tech at Pyle he suggested that I get an RCA audio splitter that would go from the single pre amp jack on the receiver and connect to BOTH the left and right input jacks on the Pyle amp. He then suggested to BRIDGE the output to the subwoofer by connecting the black and red speaker wire to BOTH of the RED output amp connectors that are normally reserved for each of the two amp channels (left and right). So, red speaker wire connected to red left amp output and black speaker wire connected to the red right amp output.

    After doing this I fired up the receiver and VOILA subwoofer was working perfectly.

    Just figured I'd put this out there for any other novices trying to build there own systems. If i had seen a post like this when I bought the subwoofer, it would have saved me a tremendous amount of time.

    Only other thing to note is that the Pyle PQA 2100 amp does have a loud fan in it. So there will be a hassle factor in my house that I'll have to manually turn it off each time I'm not using the system, to save energy and keep the noise to a minimum.

    PROS: Works like it should

    CONS: None thus far.
    October 3, 2012
    The product itself is fantastic. The subwoofer is great..would buy it again...yadda yadda...I love it. However, my beef is that the installation instructions included for this subwoofer are the same ones included with the standard speakers. The standard speaker instructions DO NOT COVER the differences. For example, there is a metal rectangular frame that is included with the subwoofer, but no reference at all as to how to use it, install it, or adjust it. I am a pretty smart person, and I must admit it took me a good 20 minutes to figure it out. I did even go to monoprice.com to search for a "how to" video..and even it covered standard installation.

    PROS: Subwoofer Quality Is Wonderful. It Sounds Great!!!!! Better than I anticipated.

    CONS: The installation instructions are non-existent. THIS IS WHY I AM NOT GIVING THIS PRODUCT A 10.

    Not really a review, just a comment about the knowledge base answer.
    Saw the answer to a question regarding connection to an existing system, and the mention of SERIES wiring is incorrect. NEVER series wire different types of speakers (ie- a sub and a small front main). This sub has a built-in passive crossover (although I can't find a x-over frequency spec) that Ii will assume is a low pass. If connecting this to the same amp as the main L/R speakers, you should parallel wire them (+ to + and - to -) since the crossover on this unit only passes low frequencies. Add a 6 or 12 dB/oct. hi pass on the L/R speakers and they will cover different frequency ranges, so your average impedance at the amp is still 8 ohms/channel. Just sayin'.

    PROS: Looks good.

    CONS: Gotta cut holes in the wall. :)

    This speaker is untouchable for the price and is of good quality. When I first mounted it, I got allot of distortion when the bass was turned up. I realized that the woofer was working well, but when i\I drove the bass hard it shook the whole wall (there was a metal heating duct behind the place that I mounted it) causing rattling and sloppy response. At lower volumes the sound was great. I solved the rattling by building a box inside the wall and ported it with a reflex tube. Now the bass is a little less deep (but more than decent) but it is clean and tight and I can drive it hard enough to use it as a sub woofer. I have a large room (16X30) so I actually added another 10" sub boxed and ported (I am driving each speaker with 100 wats RMS). Now the bass absolutely slams! I also have the 8" two-way in wall speakers and I am quite impressed with build and sound quality. I am happy with the sound and my wife is happy that there are no longer big speakers dominating the room. In many aspects these speakers beat out units that I have purchased in the past from Pyle, Sony and HTD at a small fraction of the price. P.S. these speakers are passive so you will need a decent amp to drive them...

    Works great
    Installation was easy, hookup was easy. I ended up buying this amp to drive it (and seems to be working great):

    AudioSource AMP-100 Stereo Power Amplifier (from Amazon.com)

    PROS: Great sound quality and level (I know because my wife complains).

    CONS: Difficult to find the right amp to drive it if you don't know what you are doing - which I didn't.

    In-wall Subwoofer comments
    This subwoofer is a great value. However initially the sound was distorted. I tested my 150 watt Dayton amplifier and it was working fine on another subwoofer (with a sealed enclosure). I next checked the wiring and all was fine. I then assumed the problem was that woofer needed a sealed enclosure instead of a free air mount. I blocked off the area above the woofer. This created about 1 cubic foot of saeled volume. It sounds great now.

    Thumpin Bass
    Combined a pair of these subs with a pair of 8" Kevlar angle cieling speakers - in the cieling of an outooor patio. Bass was so-so but sound improved. Added a sub amp and WOW! the system cranks while discreetly out of view and away from the elements. "Knowledge Based" tab was an awsome resource!

    Amazing for he price
    overall I am very happy with this sub

    PROS: for the price this thing really pumps.. I have this hooked up to a Dayton audio plate amp at 1/2 gain via LFE. adds a lot of low end to my movies.

    CONS: I little hard to install as the instructions are not great. I need to figure out how to get the metal grate to stay put. it pops out sometimes due the woofer pounding.

    Sub Rocks
    I'm pleased as punch with this sub. It's outstanding.

    PROS: This sub is not powered and my Denon amp would not drive it it requires a separate amp or dedicated sub amp. I knew this going into it, so it wasn't a problem. That being said - the sound from this sub is simply ... awesome. Can't beat the price either.

    CONS: I think the roll of black goo included with the speaker is supposed to keep the grill attached to the frame during heavy bass sessions? The instructions don't say, so it beats me. I used some of the black stuff sparingly and when I turn up the volume during a demo for friends or family by showing them Top Gun or The Matrix (lobby scene of course) the grill falls off anyway. When this happens it tickles me to the point of amazed laughter so I can't really count this as much of a con. At normal TV volume levels it stays on.

    Well built and produces excellent bass. Works extermely well in my 5.1 set-up!

    PROS: Nice bass

    CONS: mounting instructions not really clear
