Pros: Power , clarity, aesthetics
Cons: Creaks and rattles at first when being broke in. Break in takes a while. Stupid blue light on front when its on.
When I got this sub, I was a bit apprehensive due to the reviews of "Dead on arrival" or "distorts at high volumes".... When I first plugged this sub in, I was dissappointed by the power level and the sound clarity (if I would have written the review then, it would have gotten 2 stars). However, after playing it for about 2 weeks (about 2 hours a day), the sound (and freq resp) opened right up. Super loud, clear bass that shakes the whole house. If I bought this at full price, I may have rated it at less of a value for the money (purchased on sale at 269!!!). I would probably only recommend this sub to people with large rooms (too much power for anything less than 250 sq ft), and larger speakers to make up frequency gaps. I have an open floor plan, tile floors, and 10; ceilings (layout that destroys sound), and it still fills the whole room with sound. Sound quality at this price level is unmatched! GREAT SUB!
