    8 Inch 60-Watt Powered Subwoofer - Black

    This is an 8" powered subwoofer capable of producing 60 watts (RMS) output. The subwoofer has a frequency response range of 50 to 250 Hz with a lowpass crossover filter, which can be adjusted from 50 to 150 Hz. Gain and frequency knobs on the control panel allow you to adjust the crossover filter and the power output for the optimum blend and balance of bass output with your stereo or surround speakers.

    The subwoofer has multiple input options, which allow it to be used with any existing stereo or 5.1 (or greater) amplifier system. For each input there is a corresponding output.

    High-level inputs accept a full-range signal from the amplifier's stereo speaker outputs. When connecting the unit as part of a 5.1 system, these would be taken off the Front Left and Front Right outputs in parallel to the standard pair of front speakers. The subwoofer provides its own power and includes impedance matching circuitry, so this will not reduce the power output to the front speakers or affect the overall impedance load on the amplifier.

    Additionally, the subwoofer has a set of right/left Line Level inputs. If using a standard stereo system, without a special subwoofer output, you can connect these to the left and right line level outputs on the amp. The subwoofer will then combine the signals to process the mono bass signal it needs to drive the speaker. If you are using an amplifier with a single mono subwoofer line level output, simply use an RCA "Y" cable to split the output and send it to the two line level inputs on the subwoofer.

    The subwoofer is housed in an attractive black wood cabinet that measures 13.75" x 11.75" x 11.75" (H x W x D). The driver and a 2 3/4" sound port are located on the front, covered by a black cloth speaker grill.

    An optional "Auto-On" function puts the subwoofer system into power-saving standby mode after about 2 minutes of no audio input detected. Alternatively, the "Auto-On" function can be disabled, allowing the unit to be on whenever the power switch is in the "on" position. A 2 amp/250 volt fuse protects the system from short circuits or power overloads.

    Please note that the manual/data sheet for this subwoofer incorrectly lists the top-end of the crossover as having a frequency of 250 Hz. In fact, the top-end of the crossover is at 150 Hz as listed on the control plate on the back of the speaker. However, the back plate of the unit indicates the low-end of the crossover as being 45 Hz, when it is in fact 50 Hz.

    Pros: The auto-on feature

    Cons: Amp is not strong enough. Bottoms out at higher volumes.

    I thought this sub would suffice but I was not impressed at all. At low volumes you cant even tell its on, I actually think it shuts itself off. Who knows, maybe its defective. At higher volumes it bottoms out real quick and sounds a bit distorted. Moreso the louder you go. I have to leave it at a lower volume which totally defeats the purpose of having a subwoofer in my opinion. I would not recommend this, not even as a starter subwoofer.

    Pros: Great lows, can s beat the price.

    Cons: None so far

    Have had awesome sound systems for years. This subwoofer delivers great lows. Can't beat the price. Yes you can spend more but why! I love it and recommend it.

    Basic sub

    Pros: -Adds a low end growl to a basic stereo
    -Smaller, actually fits perfectly in the corner I picked out for it
    -After spending a few minutes adjusting it, not bad for a $60 sub, and hasn't fully broken in yet

    Cons: -Bright power LED. Seriously, it lights up a good chunk of the wall behind it

    -Even though it's a good $60, 60w 8" sub, it's still a $60, 60w 8" sub. Super low frequencies are still missing, and not the most detailed sound out there.

    I have a pair of JBL Loft 40s hooked up to a cheap 40wpc amp as a bedroom stereo, which isn't bad for a stereo that came out to about $80 total as far as overall volume and sound quality go. My biggest complaint being bass, or lack of it. Not wanting to grab a $500 12" sub for the system, when these dropped to $50 (with discount code) with free shipping, I grabbed one, and it pairs together well.

    great deal

    Pros: Warm, full bass

    Cons: Not the tightest bass

    This is not a thousand dollar, 500 watt sub. It probably won't get you evicted and may not reproduce explosions perfectly...but for adding some warm, fat, tight bottom end to a good pair of bookshelf speakers, it's the best sub you'll get anywhere near this price.

    Surprisingly awesome sub

    This sub exceeded my expectations, and provided an excellent range of response without distortion and without sounding boomy like other subs I've tried (Sony, Yamaha, Pioneer). You can't find a sub with this performance at this price, period. Sure you can pay 2x or more to get a "name" brand with this performance, but why?
