Summary: Bottom Line: Breathtaking sound! Use only balanced cables (TRS or XLR), and get a HumX if you have any hum problems. ----------- I have had an Altec Lansing 2.1 system (200 watt), a Logitech Z-2300 system, and several others including Roland studio monitors and some Focal CMS 50s. I was looking for a nice setup to give me high quality reference for recording but still be enjoyable as my main computer speakers. I started with M-Audio BX5 studio monitors.
Was Just OK; Broke in Three Weeks; Lousy Customer Support

Summary: I bought one of these to use with a studio monitor system. It delivered plenty of bass, but also added some high-frequency noise to the monitor speakers coming out of the crossover. Changing the ground configuration didn't make any difference, and the background noise made mixing difficult. Then, once I had the SBX10 for three weeks (for low-volume studio monitoring), it stopped working. Turning it on would produce a pop and then a hum, but no sound.
Summary: I'm using this in my mixing room. Price wise, it's really good. Is it overall the best subwoofer out there ?... definetely not, but get ready to pay at least twice the price to have better performance. I'm mixing these with my K&H o300 to get a bit more bass presence, cutting it at about 100-120Hz. The best feature on it is the bypass pedal, which is really nice when I want the tighter/dryer bass of my o300 (obviously less spread in lower frequencies and dB).
Summary: I am the countries master top yodeling champion for 7 years running. I Yodel with the subwoofer to my hearts content as it picks the sweet tones of my tender young voice and creates the pleasurable boom. I have owned the subwoofers for roughly one years time now. Compared to my experiences with yodelings and subwoofers, I have been pleasantly happy with the sound waves created by these woofer. I would recommend over my past woofer machines. Thank you.
Summary: Subwoofers are desirable, even addicting because they greatly improve the sound of music but they are also not without their problems! My first setup used balanced output from my Apogee Duet 2 audio interface connected to my MBP to the SBX10 with my BX8 speakers connected to the SBX10 as recommended by the instructions. This sounded great but when no music was playing there was a noticeable whine coming from the BX8s (the subwoofer was totally quiet).
V.i.P. Guinness World Record Holder for longest freestyle rap and the SBX10

Summary: I am V.i.P. The Guinness World Record holder for longest freestyle rap which lasted 12 hours and was done on October 22 2010. This sub is so powerful that my neighbors called the cops 15 mins after I turned it on. This is for pro studio users with sound proof rooms. My boy DJ Revolution uses this sub in his studio. Give it a 5 star rating for deep base, incredible lows and a thump that will make your mama say " boy turn that Sh!@ down. V.i.P.
Summary: The SBX10 delivers on its promise with plenty of deep, clean bass response, more than enough audio punch and very high quality construction. It definitely holds its place alongside the competition!
Summary: I purchased this baby a few months ago from Amazon to accompany my small, but reasonably powerful M-Audio AV40's. I produce music at home, but wasn't satisfied with the low-end on the AV 40's, they simply won't give you that lower spectrum. This woofer is accurate, and tight! The bass is full and it gives you a decent balance throughout the 20hz to 200hz range. The adjustable cut-off, phase switch and cut-off pedal make this a very convenient purchase.
Summary: I've been scraping by with the BX5a studio monitors for a little over a year now and they do sound great as stand alone monitors (much better for listening to music than most other stereos), but now that I've added this Sub my house (yes my whole house) sounds like some sort of club - I didn't know songs could thump like this on equipment I own. It isn't muddy it has a very crisp bass response.
