Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Big bang from small package
Posted . Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Big bass from a little box, punchy and clear for music but also capable of deep immersive sound you feel for movies
I would recommend this to a friend

Great bass and depth of sound

This subwoofer sounds amazing and had deep bass. I like that it has it’s own volume and frequency controls. I feel like I have a movie theater in my living room.
The only thing I was not happy about that it needs a single cable to operate from the receiver. By which it was not included with the sub at the time of purchase. Also , something the sales team forgot to inform me of. You pay that much for a single subwoofer and they can not throw in cable with it.
I have two of these subwoofer , the sound its tight and precise, its not powerful enounght to blow your windows but instead you get deep and detailed bass , you also get EQ (A or B) bass extetension (A,B,C) and phase control (0, 180)allowing you tailoring the sound to your taste , perfect to small to medium rooms.
I wanted to replace a 25 year old Energy Subwoofer. This smaller unit packs a lot more punch in a much smaller footprint.
This speaker coupled with two B&W bookshelf speakers really brings action movies to life.
Very happy with purchase.
This subwoofer for the size plays loud but small enough to hide behind the chair in the back of the room.I also added the SVS isolation feet to make it a lot sable.Great for Movies and Music with 7.1 Bowers and Wilkins 600 Anniversary Edition speakers.
This matches very well with the B&W 603 towers I bought along with it (we also have B&W 600 series center, but I do my critical listening in stereo). It's worth spending time adjusting this; if your receiver has a calibration procedure you should do so.
The bass is tight and as deep as can reasonbly be expected from a 10" driver in a small enclosure. We have a fairly large listening area with cathedral ceiling and have no problem filling it with this with minimal distortion.
This makes a real difference with music with strong low bass content -- third movement of Saint-Saens's Organ symphony, or the "Goddess of Thunder" Alejandra Villarreal's bass with The Warning. I'm not a big movie devotee so can't speak to low frequency effects. If you want 20 Hz or below you need to be looking at something bigger, but not much music goes much below 25-30 Hz.
A:AnswerFocus on a quality dedicated subwoofer cable rather than trying to wire with gauged wire. You should be using RCA connectors, not bare wire unless you are making your own banana connectors, etc.
