Due to the nature of the products we sell, we operate a strict fraud screening process and therefore we are only able to deliver to the billing address.

In the event of a delay, we will contact you either by email or telephone as soon as reasonably possible.

While 99% of UK locations are valid for next day/Saturday delivery, there are a few remote locations which are not covered.

Synthax Audio (UK) cannot deliver outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland*.

*RME products cannot be shipped to the Republic of Ireland.


Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item. From this point forth, you will be given a choice whether you wish us to re-dispatch the item or cancel the order. Please refer to our Cancellations & 14 Day Returns Procedure for more details. For items where delivery failed through no fault of Synthax Audio (UK), you will be liable for the original shipping charge, any courier surcharges and any subsequent delivery charges.


Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Dynaudio Core Sub

We know, and we agree: if the space exists for it, the full-size Core Sub is the way to go. More is more, after all. But for many studios, space is already lacking – and with rooms getting filled with ever more equipment thanks to increasing demands for immersive content, having a compact system that still packs a punch is more important than ever.

In size, Core Sub Compact is half a Core Sub. In performance, you’ll get everything you demand.

It digs down to 16Hz. It’ll put out 109dB at a listening distance of 1m (in a small studio, you’ll definitely know it’s there). It has a full set of DSP controls from the rest of the Core family. It uses 280W of high-quality Pascal amplification for each of its twin drive-units. And it won’t take up valuable floor or wall space.

We challenge you to find a meaningful low frequency it can’t handle, whatever your project.



More power to you

Core Sub Compact might be smaller in size, but in processing power it’s a giant. It uses the same amp module and DSP engine you’ll find in the rest of the Core family – which means you get all the customisation options you could want. Analogue, AES3 digital… you can deal with everything from a 2.1-channel system right up to a full-on 9.1.6 immersive rig.

It also means total consistency with the rest of the Core family, regardless of which combination of speakers you use. Core Sub Compact’s tonality is identical to its higher-frequency cousins – it really is an integrated bass-extension system, not just a boom-box.

Need more versatility? You can use more than one Core Sub Compact in your system for more even bass-distribution. They’ll happily sit underneath or behind a desk, directly underneath a Core speaker (thanks to the built-in location indentations).



And you don’t have to worry about vibration. The two Dynaudio MSP+ Hybrid Drive units work in an opposed configuration. Combine that with the ultra-stable cabinet and you can mix at maximum SPL with your priceless Ming vase sitting right on the sub. Worry-free.

The Hybrid Drive is a clever thing – specifically engineered for subwoofers. The rigid aluminium core is sandwiched between a layer of paper damping on the rear, and our proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) material in a cap on the front to eliminate ringing. Put the whole thing in front of a muscular ferrite magnet system and you’ve an incredibly solid engine for bass. Plus, you get two…

Reference monitoring is all about trust – and solid bass-management is crucial in letting you know exactly how your material and room really sound. Core Sub Compact is the way to hear it.



Key features

  • Hand-crafted

    Designed, developed, tested and made in Denmark. All the drivers are hand-made at Dynaudio HQ, and each speaker is individually calibrated before it leaves the Dynaudio factory

  • Advanced materials

    Core Sub uses new Dynaudio MSP+ Hybrid Drive units – made with MSP and aluminium – designed specifically for subwoofers. Dual-action damping ensures tight, controlled bass

  • Advanced DSP

    Uses the same DSP engine you'll find in the rest of the Core range – so you can customise its response to its position in the room for seamless consistency and integration

  • Mix-and-match

    Use as many Subs as you need with your Core speakers – stack them in neat arrays or even mount them on walls. Core Sub Compact aligns physically and electronically with your studio
