A portable subwoofer for notebook
Saitek woofer
This unique Saitek's subwoofer sound system offers notebook users the chance to appreciate bass frequency in a size of a CD in diameter.
The cable is wound up around the subwoofer much like the string on a yo-yo and is split between the USB connector which powers the amplifier and the 3.5mm audio jack.
It works best with machines that have a dedicated subwoofer output, which means that you really need a notebook capable of 5.1-channel audio.
With an effective output of 2W the PZ09A won’t make the floor shake, but considering that it only costs £20.98 inc VAT you wouldn’t expect it to. Overall the PZ09A is yet another gadget, but one that actually serves a purpose and a useful one at that.
