Summary: This sub was a nice addition to my bedroom system. I added it to some 21 year old Klipsh Forte II. The low frequency response is the same between the speakers and the sub, and the sub sound was kind of hidden. So, I switched the phase switch to 180, and the sub now produces a nice punchy bass.
Pros: Great price. Solid grill to protect woofer in high traffic areas. As always with Polk speakers, nice clean sound.
Summary: I believe it's a pretty good buy.. I started to buy a Yamaha 8' powered woofer but I wanted something with more power and a deeper bass.. so far not bad to say I got this a good price. I haven't quite cranked up the volume to see what it can really do, but at level 15 it hums to my satisfaction... I wouldn't buy this if you are looking to get fierce sounding thump... but if you want a conservative accent sound... you should buy it.
Pros: Nice accent bass
Cons: Not as a fierce as I would like... may get another one to get the fierce bass I want
Pros: Great sound. Lows hit well for the price point. Once this sub is turned up properly, we are good to go. If you are using this on LFE and have a newer Denon receiver, you cannot specify your fronts as "Large" in the settings. Must be set on small.
Cons: Took me a few weeks of fiddling around here and there before I realized what all of the settings were. Took me a while, but love the sub now. I almost returned it before (I didnt actually purchase the sub from Newegg like I did the rest of my equipment).
Pros: It produces good sound, but I'm already considering upgrading. I really don't need to, but just want room shattering bass. My cave is 12x13. I'm going to try placing it in the corner and I may get more of the response I'm looking for. Definitely do NOT buy a smaller sub!
Cons: Could give a little more boom, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: This sub fills in our living room home theatre quite well, and matches our classic Polk Monitor speakers just fine. We run it at abour half volume and 80 Hz or so for most all movies, then turn it up a bit when playing CDs.
Summary: It's perfect for a small, asymmetric living space in a basement apartment. Positioning of the speaker in this instance is somewhat limited, but I did achieve a satisfactory overall soundscape by putting the subwoofer near an adjacent wall, next to the right LSi9 bookshelf speaker. The sub has integrated nicely with the LSi9 speakers, provided the volume control is adjusted so there is no booming sound, rather a cohesive lower frequency emitted across the dynamic range of...
