Summary: This is a sub for the beginner. For its price, it delivers solid 'Rumble-in-the-jungle' coming off a decent receiver with a dedicated Sub Out. It takes a little tweaking with the volume vs. Frequency knobs to get the right setting so it isn't too muddy, but the results were good. I used this on a system that had a Denon E series Receiver with 'low on the totem pole' Panasonic LCR and Rear Surround speakers(that originally came with an 'all-in-one' surround system) that...
Summary: Do your homework before buying a subwoofer! Don't get dooped into something you don't like otherwise you'll get upgrade-itis.

Cons: For the price, this is one of the worst subwoofers you can get. For $130 you can get a Dayton Audio Sub-1200 which can hit down to 25Hz. Can you believe that this Sony sub can only get down to 35Hz?? (I've tested it) And it's super quiet and distorted at those frequencies. Not only that but it there is a range of Hz from about 50-60Hz where not much sound comes out at all. It makes listening to drops in music just awful.
