Summary: This puts out better base than my JBL 15" 250watt powered sub woofer. I bought this one to put in my living room so I could move the big one to the basement into my media room. I've since put my older bigger subwoofer back in the living room and taken this 10 in to the Media room.
Summary: After hooking this up to my Harmon Kardon and Changing the Settings in My receiver I decided to have some friends over, The true test not a numbers test... First off, I have 4 floorstanding JBL Speakers with a JBL Center to match all Running through my Harmon Kardon.
Summary: Awesome. I have this paired with two martin logan speakers, driven by a yamaha receiver, and installed in my home theater in the basement (96" image from a sanyo projector with a custom HTPC).
Summary: I bought this speaker as a house gift for my friends. He wired it up while I was there. It matched their black furniture like it was part of a set. He placed it on the wood floor. They both sat down and watched the first part of Transformers and his wife just kept oohing and ahhing.
Summary: My criteria for a sub was simple: decent sound and good specs for right around $100, from a name I know. Panasonic, JVC, Toshiba don't make standalone subs. Sony's got some offerings, but their low-end audio tends to suck, so nevermind.
Summary: this subwoofer is a 10 inch subwoofer with more power than my friends 12 inch sub the huge size is made up by the huge sound it rattles my neighbors house and they love my dubstep XD. any way im using it with two bose 201 v series speakers and a sony amp.
Summary: I used the LFE connection to my Harmon-Kardon receiver/amplifier and programmed it for a 10 inch subwoofer and both LFE and low frequency sounds. I played several cds and adjusted the volume on the back of the subwoofer to my tastes.
Summary: I have this woofer hooked up to my PC as a 2.1 system, using the SB X-Fi sound card. It is very boomy when playing music & games. I can only turn the volume notch up a few dials, otherwise my room starts to shake.
