Seems like the speaker is partially blown on arrival - repair review
9 January 2015
Summary: Arrived, took it out of the box and set it in place and followed instructions. But this unit is a dud. Seems like the speaker is partially blown on arrival, has a bad rattle like something is loose inside. I have another sub that works fine, and was looking to add this as a second.
Summary: I rated the speaker at 1-star because it did not function as intended (designed). During testing it was difficult to set the speaker up. There was a lot of static during playback and the sound would go in-and-out. I returned this example and I am waiting on the replacement unit to arrive.
Summary: I bought this as a refurb on Woot for $125. Worked for about a week, then the speaker died horribly. The electronics are fine. I am going to try another, better aftermarket subwoofer in it. I'm not impressed with the stock speaker used (paper cone, lightweight magnet).
Summary: I purchased this sub on sale for $125. The downside of the sub is that there is no adjustment for the frequency. You only have a gain control for the volume. Therefore, you have to adjust the frequency with your receiver.
Summary: I recently purchased this on a Woot deal. I wasn't sure what to expect. I used it to compliment my Pinnacle QP9 sound bar, which is connected to my Onkyo NR626 receiver.(All purchased from Woot!) The item was well packaged, which appears to be a common thing with Pinnacle.
