Excerpt: Setting this S8 subwoofer up takes time and patience. Manipulating the Volume-Crossover-and Phasing controls is a must to blend with the A2+ Speakers. Once you get it right it just pops right in for spacious, transparent, and low end sound. Set the volume at the 50% mark on the computer first.
Summary: AMAZING subwoofer! I have very high end equipment and just bought this for a small home theater that we have and you cant believe the punch of this lille guy! Also very enjoyable for music too! Great great value as the A2 Powered Desktop Speakers!
Another hit (with deeeeeep bass) from Audioengines
2 November 2013
Summary: Audioengines does it again. My experience has been one rock-solid product after another ... and the S8 continues the trend. Setup was a breeze, with an N22 driving a pair of P4s. Adjusted the crossover to about 70Hz or thereabouts to blend in well and then started to move up the volume.
Summary: A nice little piece of furniture that triples as a work of art and a superior subwoofer for my computer desktop sound system. With a pair of Audioengine A5s as rear speakers and A2s as front speakers, I needed some bottom and splurged on the A8.
