Summary: I have in-wall speakers in my bedroom. They sound great, but I wanted a bit more bottom end to music and movies. There is no way our "Aesthetics Committee Chairwoman" would want a large subwoofer clashing with the room.
Summary: Great little Subwoofer. My living room is 17' x 15'. This subwoofer is a definite improvement from our previous HTIB setup. The bass could be a little louder for my preference, but I knew this was a smaller subwoofer when I bought it.
Summary: I ran out of room in my 19" audio rack, even for an 8" square (the smallest I could find) subwoofer. I have a few 12" and even 15" subwoofers but my rack mounted audio system is on wheels, and I had to have the big sub next to the rack, so moving it all was a pain.
