Summary: Excellent sound and quality.I install with my pioneer elite sc-37 .good prices for sound,and theather.QUALITY NOTEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
Summary: I have been using CV products since my first pair of D5's in the early 80's. They are simply fantastic speakers. And, with qualifications, this subwoofer is no exception. The performance is amazing... when it works. The problem is with the amplifier. There is a flaw in the design and poor support from CV. I bought my September 2008. By Tannksgiving the amp had blown.
Summary: Before making this purchase, I tried to go cheap and bought the "POLK AUDIO 10" MONITOR". It was D.O.A. right out of the box! So, having not learned my lesson, I went ahead and bought the "SONY SA-3000 12". It sounded as terrible as it looked. I worked with it for 3 weeks, and could not get any acceptable sound. Then I decided to spend a bit more and purchased this "CERWIN-VEGA! VE-28S"(finally learned my lesson)!
Summary: I would like to contribute and provide a review for this sub since there is not much out there. I upgraded from a Yamaha yst-215 8 subwoofer. I purchased this sub because it fits in the discrete spot where my wife accepts it at less than 10' width. She is very decore picky. If I could spend more I probably would of went with a velodyne minivee 8 inch sub. My system Harman Kardon AVR 347 Polk SurroundBar50 Klipsch KHC-6 in ceiling speakers as rears.
Great while it works, but don't expect it to last.

Summary: I bought this item in February of '07 for my home theatre system. Swank. Basstacular. Come July, the thing starts making this funny noise when it's in "Standby" mode. Sort of a white-noise growl-y rumble. Think of far-off thunder and you'll be close. Awesome when your Harley Hog makes that noise, not so great when your subwoofer starts making it at 3:00 in the morning when it's not even supposed to be switched on.
Summary: I was really lucky I found this Cerwin Vega subwoofer on Amazon. I was in a big box store, not mentioning any names but their initials were bestbuy, and they were trying to steer me to some inferior orient brand subwoofer that rattled. It was bad. I got on the computer found Cerwin Vega and ordered this one from Amazon and it was here in less than a week. Easy to hook up, works great , really thumps. No rattles, well made and its a Cerwin Vega.
Summary: Cerwin Vega! VE-28S Dual 8" Powered Subwoofer This subwoofer is an excellent buy. Wonderful sound, large amount of base support in a compact package for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend all the Cerwin Vega speakers. M.
