Summary: Need a little bass in that other rom or at the office? Hey, its small, but well build and actually sounds pretty good with music...if you are looking for a sub with a big presence, this is not the one....but if you are looking to add some elegant bass to a small system, this sub would be a good choice.
Summary: Great sounding, plenty of punch and power. Took a star because it's a bit hard to calibrate and get the sound right. Usually a subwoofer will pair with your system after a good calibration, but I find myself tweeking this thing often to get the sound right. I'd buy another one, but perhaps for a music only system, Movies audio tracks fluctuate too much from title to title.
Summary: This sub is great for the price I paid at $99. Its not going to blow your windows out by any means. Im using it on a 2 channel set up in a small room with line level inputs. It does what I need it to do and thats to fortify the bottom end a little. I have both crossover and level set to just below half. I set it on peice of wood with spikes on its side cross firing to my left. In this config it provides good clean bass. Down firing is not ideal for music.
Summary: I was in search of a Subwoofer to complete add to my small room home theater project. The Martin Logan Dynamo 500 and 700 were recommended along with SVS, and HSU. As I compared, I decided to go with teh SVS PB 1000 (in transit as I type), Although I ordered the SVS sub, I thought about the 8" Downfiring Martin Logan Dynamo 300 and thought for the price I would take a chance on it for a Bedroom/office to fill in the lower frequencies for a pair of Bose 161 bookshelves.
Summary: I am quite pleased. It adds a respectful base to the music depending on the type of music. It is not room shaking like the original Dynamo (before MartinLogan watered it down into 3 models: 300, 500 & 700). It gets the job done as I needed it to pair with my Magnepan 1.7, planars not particularly known for their low end, but, mainly for their clarity.
Summary: I bought this for my new Magnapan MMGW electrostatic speakers and am very happy with the result. It's not "boomy" at all. The crossover control has a nice range that allowed it to kicks in about the time the MMGW's bass peters out, which it certainly does on the low end of just about every instrument except a violin, I'd say. The phase reversal switch produced the desired result, and it's not too big.
