BlasterX Katana Subwoofer Layout
The Subwoofer measures in at 5.1 x 11.8 x 13.1 inches (333 x 130 x 299 mm) and is finished in a matching black gloss. Like all good subwoofers the design is minimal and should be heard not seen.
At the core of the subwoofer is a 5.25” (133mm) long throw subwoofer driver featuring a super stiff paper cone for efficient low detailed bass.
The driver is housed in a CARB-compliant MDF cabinet with flared port tube for laminar air flow and increased output. The result is bass that sounds like you are working with a much larger speaker.
The Sound BlasterX Katana ships with an external power supply, a set of wall mounts, a set of USB cables the user’s manual and a tiny remote control.
The remote control provides easy access to the most common functions, sources and multimedia controls. I didn’t expect a remote and find it to be quite useful when listening to music or changing sound modes on the fly. Finding those little buttons on the top is pretty hard when the Katana is tucked away under the monitor.
