The 8-inch Long-Throw Woofer is the heart and sole of the ADA890 system delivering deep thumping bass that maximizes the pleasure of the listening experience. Eating a total of 60-Watts RMS makes the ADA890 sub 20-Watts more powerful than the ADA880 sub. The best way to describe the appearance of the subwoofer box is to say it’s a big ACS56 sub box, or you could just look at the pictures I took. The sub box also accommodates the AMP which outputs a total of 120 Watts RMS to the entire system. The black sub box is much more appealing than the white ADA880 box.
