Summary: I love this sub. Got it running 5.1 with rosewood rc-10's and minis. Sounds crazy! Got it for 250 though. Would love to add another to my system but don't know about this current price. It is worth it though, the build alone. This sub will rock out any apartment.
Summary: This is a great sub that produces sweet sounding bass from a very small enclosure. I've found that it's perfect for my apartment, and I'd be hard-pressed to find a better performer for under 300. Amazon's prices are a little high, but this can be had for less on the bay.
Summary: Bought this for only $225.00 online closeout. Tremendous good looks and sturdy build...sounds great at low or higher volumes. Great valure for the money..paired up with a set of Energy Take 5 Classics (Chinese Built ones). Need a good amount of break-in before these speakers are broken in. Once broken in..there's no better sound for the money. The piano black laquer finish looks great with other black components. Sorry to say they are now discontinued.
Summary: When i first hooked the sub up it sounded weak but the more i used it the louder it got. To be a 8 inch sub it gets low. The look is nice. It has a 200 rms bash amp, so you need the right equipment to push the littlle devil. I'm very pleased with the esw-v8.
The little sub that could - all the way down to 31Hz!

Summary: I'm using this sub as part of a 7.1 system that includes two Energy Take TWR speakers for the front channels, a Take FPS for the center channel, and four Take SAT speakers for the surrounds. It produces deep bass down to about 31Hz, which should be plenty for all but the deepest of bass aficionados. This results in a sub that handles all but the most challenging home theater tasks with ease.
