Very nice sub for the price. Pretty satisfied so far.

  • Summary: Gave this sub a try considering I got a pretty good deal on it and I know Boston Acoustics is a pretty good company, and I also liked the look of it. In person it is very nice looking; simple yet stylish. I was surprised though that it cannot handle very high output. I keep the gain set at only about 1/3 the way up. Any higher than this and the sub seems to "bottom out" at higher volume. That being said, it sounds pretty good for music and really kicks in during movies.

Liked the ASW650 that came with the house so much, we bought a second for true 7.2 sound.

  • Summary: I never realized how much better two subwoofers could sound! The Boston Acoustics ASW650 looks great and adding a second to our large Bonus Room enabled both subwoofers to be driven at lower levels while filling the room with more natural-sounding bass. Completely satisfied. P.S. Be patient removing the protective clear plastic from the speaker--it *can* be done!

Waste of $500 for me!

  • Summary: I bought my ASW650 subwoofer from Crutchfield in November 2011. August 2012 the subwoofer stopped working - the "auto" toggle switch position failed to detect a signal and I also got no signal from the "audio on" toggle switch position. The signal light would never switch from red to green. I called Crutchfield and since the product was under warranty they sent a new one and I returned the old one.

  • Summary: I am used to the sound of sealed box subwoofers, and this was my first purchase of a bass reflex sub woofer. I am somewhat disappointed in the performance of this BA sub. When it arrived,I opened the box and hooked it up . No sound. I unscrewed the plate amp and noticed one of the speaker wires has fallen loose during shipping. The speaker itself is a well built, rigid, vented voice coil design, well secured. The connectors are cheap, however, and they fall off.

  • Summary: good design with classic sounds, well control to slow frequency with right power. Boston A series product line is very good to meet modern family but legend style. Will be perfect if white option available.
