We Raised the Bar

The D215s is a new paradigm in accuracy, elegance, and style. Massive amounts of output is not the only mark of a flagship subwoofer, and Accuracy versus output is no longer a decision you will have to make, because you can now have both. The true metric of a subwoofer is not just being loud, but having the dynamic range plus ultra low distortion to create the subtlety of every detail of the bass guitar, to the 12Hz stomp of that T-Rex. Innovative technology such as an 3kW smart amp with a 32 bit ARM core, iOS and Android app to control up to 8 subwoofers, a 2.4” TFT touchscreen, and a dual woofer Push-Pull configuration for extremely low distortion. This monster can dance as effortlessly as a ballerina or crush frequencies well below 20Hz.

The Mark of a Push Pull design

Every parts of this woofer was computer optimized to ensure every speck of performance was achieved and then validated with advanced test equipment like Klippel. Starting with the tuning of the massive 60mm peak linear excursion, spider compliance, and magnetic motor curve. The two woofers are then mounted on a massive 80mm front baffle and operated in a push pull configuration utilizing cancellation of the 2rd order harmonics to further reduce distortion. Every step of the way ensuring the best low frequency experience you can have.

3.0kW of Intelligence

At the core of our amps is a 32 bit ARM processor to control innovative technologies like real time temperature status, current and voltage monitoring, fault detection, and performance diagnostics evaluated at more than a 1000 times a second. All of this to make sure that our 3kW amplifiers are always in control even well below 20Hz. In addition we have dual balanced and un-balanced inputs with pass through, 12v trigger, and OTA firmware updates through our APP to always get the latest improvements. The end result is low distortion bass for the finest details with the dynamic range to meet the highest transients without compression and control at the click of button.

APP control

Bass management is critical to control the notoriously difficult acoustic environment known as your listening room. Standing waves, subwoofers in an imperfect position, and sound variation from seat to seat are only some of these issues. Control for up to 8 subwoofers with each woofer having 3 banks of 10 PEQ’s, Time Delay, Phase, up to 6 standard EQ’s, 24dB low-pass crossovers, and polarity, are all tools available to optimize your room performance. Our APP uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with your iOS or Android based devices.

While the control options are extensive, it's important to note that the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer lacks physical dials for crossover, phase, and gain adjustments. Some users may prefer the tactile feedback and simplicity of physical controls, so this is something to consider.

In terms of connectivity, the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer offers flexible options with dual inputs and outputs. This allows for easy integration into existing audio setups, whether they are stereo or multi-channel configurations. The subwoofer also supports high-quality audio formats, ensuring that it can handle the demands of modern audio sources.

This ensures that the subwoofer remains within safe operating limits, preventing any damage or degradation in performance. The monitoring system is a valuable addition, providing peace of mind to users and helping to extend the lifespan of the subwoofer.

However, it's worth noting that the subwoofer's aggressive amp limiting may limit its potential output. While this is a protective measure, it may be a consideration for users who require exceptionally high volume levels or have large rooms that demand a higher output subwoofer.


Despite its impressive performance and features, the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer does have a few limitations. Firstly, the higher price point may be a deterrent for budget-conscious consumers. While the subwoofer offers exceptional performance, it may be out of reach for some buyers.

Additionally, the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer is only available in a black finish, limiting options for those who prefer alternative aesthetics. Furthermore, the lack of specific technical specifications or additional connectivity options in the provided information may leave some potential buyers wanting more detailed information.

Another drawback is the current backorder status of the subwoofer, which may result in longer waiting times for interested consumers. Additionally, the limited output compared to some competitors at a similar price point may be a consideration for those who require a higher output subwoofer.

Lastly, while the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer offers impressive bass response, it may not provide deep bass extension in large rooms without the support of additional subwoofers. This is something to consider for users with larger spaces or specific bass requirements.


In conclusion, the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer is a powerful and well-designed subwoofer that offers exceptional performance and control options. With its superbly neutral response, low distortion, and innovative driver alignment, this subwoofer delivers accurate and detailed bass reproduction. The powerful amplifier and THX Dominus certification further enhance its capabilities, making it a great choice for home theater enthusiasts and audio purists.

However, the higher price point, limited availability in only a black finish, and some missing technical specifications may be drawbacks for some consumers. Additionally, the aggressive amp limiting and potential need for additional subwoofers in large rooms should be considered before making a purchase.

Overall, the Perlisten Audio D215s Subwoofer is a solid choice for those seeking a high-performance subwoofer that offers precise control and impressive bass reproduction. It is best suited for users who prioritize accurate and detailed bass response in their home theater or audio setup.
