Summary: I purchased this sub a few years ago to round out my home theater. After comparing other units and sizes I settled on this one because of a review I read that it produces clear, focused low end sound. I couldn't agree more!
A great sub for the matching speakers, but with a few quirks
10 February 2011
Summary: Pros: - matches perfectly with the Energy Take Classic 5.0 speakers - Lots of volume and power when desired (I don't look for booming bass - just full rich sound) - versatile connections (speaker level and mono) - EXCELLENT Customer support - more about this below Cons: -versatile connections.
Summary: Love this sub woofer. Doesn't over do it, just the right amount of base. I have a two prong audio jack leaving my receiver, and the sub woofer only has a one prong jack in, I thought that was a little odd. I would recommend this product regardless, it is reliable, quality, and sleek.
Summary: This sub's bass is very detailed but soon as it hits max volume it distorts. I think it's great for music more then movies because of the low wattage it has. You will make the wall it's on vibrate but pictures will not be bouncing off the wall like crazy.
Summary: I use this with the Energy Take 5 surround sound speakers and a Pioneer VSX-919AH A/V receiver (120W per channel). I am picky about bass - I want it to go as close to 20Hz as possible and clean, absolutely no hint of mud and no exaggerated volume.
Summary: First off, let me qualify my comments with the statement that I am not what I would consider an "audiophile". I appreciate good sound as it relates to my movie watching and music listening experience but I do not get caught up in the finer details of sound reproduction that some enjoy discussing.
Summary: i picked this sub up and just found myself wanting more. not enough thump in my opinion. picked up an asw-10 from the speaker company for a similar price and was pleased with it's performance.
