Very good little sub for the price 02/21/2013
This review is from: Pioneer SW-8-K 100W Powered Subwoofer Single
Cheap, can get pretty low for its size, nice discreet LED on front to show that it is on (some may prefer it on the rear, I like it though). Clean punchy bass, not too boomy.
Not as loud as some other comparable subs.
I was concerned this sub wouldn't be loud enough for my 14x12 family room which opens up into a nook/kitchen area, effectively doubling the area of the room). I first put it on the hardwood floors and it didn't sound very loud, I had to turn up the gain to 3/4 max to get it anywhere loud enough. I decided to try putting it on the brick fireplace in the corner instead, and wow, what a difference. My worries about not being able to fill the room were quelled. Granted it is still not super loud, but I don't blast my music and movies like I used to when I was younger and kid-less, so it works for me. They pair pretty well with my Energy Take Classic 5.0 set. For the price I think it's a very good buy. I used to own a Polk PSW10, and while that got louder and was boomier, it wasn't quite as accurate as this smaller sub. I have no regrets purchasing this sub for the budget price.
