Great delivery and price, works well with the surround system would recommend to anyone who like a deep bass, good feed back on site already.
My previous sub, with a 10inch driver, had developed a fault. I was unable to find a dealer that actually sold a subwoofer, let alone help in my repair. I could only find sound bar/subwoofer. Or satellite speakers/subwoofer. The new subs colour had to fit in with the rooms decor, but more importantly had to do the job. I actually started off, with 2 a4 sheets taped together, and measureing everything round in the house, pots pans sausepans etc, to get the sizes i wanted. Then drew a circle round a ten inch item. Inside that at the edge,1 7inch/8 inch and 2 17cms (170mm)and then viewed the result. Some subwoofers do only have a 7/8 inch driver.
When teamed up with my 2020i bookshelf. When teamed up with my 2020i bookshelf speakers it fills out the bottom end brilliantly with the sub only set to quarter volume.
I bought this to replace my now dead rel q100 which i had for 15 years. This doesn’t go nearly as low but it is low enough. The base is clean; quite clinical actually but this is a character i like. I fear the sound signature may annoy some because it lacks any distinct character, its just there, cleans and unobtrusive. Setting up the unit is a breeze, with a switch that adjust the character of the sound depending on whether using an dsp processor or traditional stereo amplifiers. This does appear to work as i use a yamaha soundbar and switch was set to stereo. The bass was too unruly and not matter how much adjusting of the frequency crossover fixed it. Worried, i decided to read the manual; changed the switch, adjusted my frequency on my processor to match the unit and it was night and day.
This sw stands out for the way it can be adjusted for different uses (home cinema, parties, classical music, etc. ) and different room acoustics, with continuously variable controls for level, cut-off frequency and phase. Or if that’s too complicated for you there are switches to select standard combinations. It’s also a different shape to most sws, which i found easier to accommodate that the usual cube, despite being quite large. And finally, it does do the job.
