Summary: This sub woofer does sound good. But is a little boomy at first and is easily fixed with the adjustments on the rear. The only dislike I have is the auto standby, it kicks in a little soon and when it comes back on it sometimes makes an annoying thump.otherwise I really like this sub.
Summary: I have been using the Onkyo SKW204 for several weeks. I do like the sound it produces but have some trouble with the Stand By feature that is built into the speaker. I have adjusted the controls on my receiver and on the subwoofer itself following instructions from the booklet enclosed with the subwoofer. I have found that older music and films that do not have heavy bass tracks allow the Stand By to kick in and out.
Summary: Works well wiith the Onkyo TX-SR313 receiver. No hum or power on / power off issues. I set my crossover to 200Hz and used my old five speaker set. Sounds pretty good accross a wide range of volumes. This is my first powered subwoofer and was surprised how much of a difference it makes.
Summary: I love this sub woofer but this is my second one the first one just stopped working I have not had a chance to get it repair or checked I took it to Best buy but they could not fix it or check it the closest place is in charlotte NC two hours away
Summary: I purchased this unit reluctantly only due to 2 reviews by apparent experts. All I can say is ignore them. They would not have had the complaints they described had they read the operating instructions! This Sub is definitely the best bang for your buck! The only complaint I have is that the instruction should be much better. Adequate if you are a techie but not near enough for most of us. To the "expert" that had problems with automatic /standby/ shutoff.........
Summary: Onkyo what else needs to be said!!! Great sound to complete my 7.1 system. You would really need to hear it to appreciate the true bass that this little monster puts out. I was always a Cerwin Vega person until I purchased my first Onkyo 5.1 1100 watt system. It blew my mind and the windows out. When it came time to upgrade there was no deciding "Onkyo".
Summary: I use this sub-woofer with an Onkyo TX-NR616, and it sounds great. It's amazing how the sound is so much more alive with the sub-woofer on. A nice feature is that it goes to standby when the sound level is lowered below about 27db if others don't want to hear the output.
