3 out of 5 eggsSub died just under 2 years

Pros: For the price and size, it sounded great... when it worked

Cons: It only worked for slightly less than 2 years

Other Thoughts: Came back from a 2 week business trip put on some music and realized something was wrong, there was no bass at all. At first I thought it was completely dead, but then I put my ear up to it and you could hear muffled low frequencies coming out of the sub. Turning up the gain knob all the way helped, but it still wasn't nearly as loud as it used to be at half the gain. Searching on the internet, I realized I wasn't the first to have this happen. Apparently the amplifier is busted. After writing my previous review, I did notice a humming sound when the sub was in standby mode. I wonder if this contributed to the early failure. Too bad the warranty was only for a year, but then again, I probably would have paid shipping up the wazoo to get it serviced. Since it was so cheap ($70), I guess I shouldn't complain too much, it would probably cost almost as much to get it fixed. But still, less than 2 years before failure is very disappointing, even for a budget sub. I've had subs/amps that were used and abused in heat and cold in my car that lasted over 10 years, and they weren't anything really high end. Anyway, I'm off to find a replacement now... but I probably won't buy another low end Pioneer this time around though. The budget Dayton subs look promising!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat woofer for money

Pros: Neat looking, without any fancy blows & whistles.
Good quality. I owe it over half a year - no problems encountered.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Overall I am satisfied with Pioneer speaker quality. I owe this little sub, surround speakers & bookshelf speakers for quite a time.
In some case, however, you might wanna insulate speaker box little better.

4 out of 5 eggsProduces an audible hum

Pros: Sound quality is rather decent. The bass response it rather crisp. (I generally listen to music) . It is connected to a Yamaha receiver.
cabinets built quality seems nice. the feet provide plenty of vibration absorption.

Cons: Main issue is that it produces an audible hum even when in standby.
It is not coming from the speaker , so it is not a ground fault.

2 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasts

Pros: This speaker sounded very nice while it worked. I do not listen to loud volumes, so I never had a problem with distortion or chuffing or blowing the speaker out or it getting hot. I really enjoyed the sound till it died.

Cons: After about 18 months of using it, it just stopped working. Well, I can just barely hear it if I put my ear up to it. The volume and crossover knobs still affect the output - it's just that there is no more volume than what you'd get out of a headphone speaker.

Other Thoughts: Given that there are other reviewers here stating their speaker only lasted about a year an a half too, it seems this is a problem others may expect to encounter as time goes on. I would not recommend this speaker unless you only need to use it till the warranty runs out. Until then, you will likely enjoy it. Consider it to be disposable after that.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic sound on a budget

Pros: Got this for $50 after MIR. Outstanding performance for the price. Matches the Andrew Jones towers and center channel very well.

Cons: Suffers from "chuffing" and isn't quite as musical as originally anticipated.

5 out of 5 eggsValue is key

Pros: Bought it at yard sale price (from Newegg of course)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought this during one of Newegg's many sales for my brother. He was in need of a sub, and I've been buying Pioneer equipment my entire adult life. After hooking it up and setting the recommended crossover, I thought the unit might be bad, as I could get no sound out of it for 30 minutes, then I realized I hadn't changed his Pioneer receiver front speakers to 'small', which kicked the sub in. He was extremely happy with the sounds it produced. He turned on his TV and was smiling at how much more immersive the sound was for that too.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little sub

Pros: I have this little sub connected to a 40" vizio sound bar - very satisfied with the sound quality. Auto power off feature. for an 8" sub, this hits pretty hard.

Cons: No cons to report

Other Thoughts: The bass output for this little sub is good. I live in a small appt building, the upstairs neighbor's kids run around all day, when i've had enough, i just crank the bass and turn up the beats!

5 out of 5 eggsPioneer SW-8-K 100W Powered Subwoofer Single

Pros: I've just brought this 8'' down fire subwoofer to aid my two pioneer twin towers. It made a big difference in my surround sound.If you're looking for that deep rich bass this is all you'll need. Unless you have a huge area.You may need two one in front and in the rear of that area. For the price you can't beat that. This subwoofer is the boooomb! So far, so good.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsWoW

Pros: Ordered this sub on Saturday, received it Tuesday, very fast shipping, impressive for 1.99.
The subwoofer completes my HT system very nicely, for what I paid, 79.99, I feel I got more than I paid for.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have a 7.1 system, wish it was 7.2 so I could add another one of these!
