Summary: As musical and poised as you can get at this price point even all these years after its release. Do your homework and read the reviews, this is a gem of a little sub that isn't the least bit boomy or obnoxious. Adds a nice tight bottom end on music as well. Awesom controls and settings as well.
Summary: I purchased the Klipsch XW-300D subwoofer along with a whole theater room 7.1 surround system of klipsch icon speakers 18 months ago. They sounded FANTASTIC in my house... up until this last weekend. The subwoofer gave a few vibrating buzzes during some music and then cut out all together.
Summary: This sub sounds great with the right system. I paired this sub with the Klipsch Quintet 5's. These are satelite speakers which are great but they can't produce the mids/lows that big speakers can. This sub really picks up where the quintets leave off.
Summary: This sealed subwoofer is an excellent for those whom are looking for the punch oppose to the boom. I have several of these subs in my home. They are all utilized in smaller rooms - 12X15. They work great for the punch of music, home theater I feel is better suited for a ported sub.
Summary: This is one heck of a sub. It looks great, and is a small sleek design that tucks away nicely into a corner, or in my case underneath a table. This is great, because it's less a piece of furniture and more a sound producing device. Once I hooked it up, I was right away blown away by the power.
Summary: Great sounding, compact sub! Easy to use and install. I haven't even calibrated my system yet, but it is even better than I thought it would be. I'm not into the wall-shattering bass, so this is the tight, low and clean bass I like.
Summary: As I'll take this subwoofer abroad (I don't live in USA), size was an important factor in buying choices. I've searched for some other options like Polk PSW-111, Polk DSW MicroPro 1000/2000, Mirage MM-6 / MM-8, and others.
Proof that there is no replacement for displacement

Summary: The bottom line is that this subwoofer, while small and capable, doesn't hit hard enough. It also is not for the plug-and-play set. I bought this subwoofer to replace a 10 year old 10" ported 150 watt Pioneer subwoofer that quit on me (it did have a decent BASH amp in it).
Summary: ...if it didn't fail the very day BB was about to sell me their floor model at a discount. This comes as little surprise to me, though, as I've experienced a history of short-lived Klipsch subwoofers, of the 5.1 Pro Media kind.
