M&K, Polk, Infinity, Cambridge Soundworks, Yamaha, Boston Acoustics, Advent.
None of these, with the exception of M&K have a sub on the market that can touch this subwoofer. Deep extension, oodles of power and sweet looking to boot.
As another reviewer noted, it probably doesn't weight 75 pounds on its own. In the box, yes, thats the weight. Out of the box it's 63 pounds. Still a very hefty sub especially when you consider its crammed into a 14" squared box. I emailed Definitive Technology to get some clarification on the performance specifications on this sub.
Although it's advertised everywhere that it will reach down to 13Hz, the useable frequency response is down to a more reasonable 20Hz -3db anechoic measured. So, in your room you may expect to see this output or even better if your room is on the smaller side (under 1500 cu.ft.)
The 10" driver weighs in at over 21 lbs. That's one heavy driver.
I'm extremely satisfied with the performance and can recommend it without reservation. However, one thing I do have an issue with is the auto-on feature. I like to listen at low volume now and again. When I do this, I lose the bass response in my system because this sub requires a stronger signal to turn it on. I think Definitive kind of blew it on this one by not offering a bypass feature that allows this sub to be constantly on instead of needing a signal to kick it into gear.
Other than that, this thing is truly a stellar performing subwoofer.
Is it pricey? You betcha. But considering that its closest competitor is a $1,299 Klipsch that can only deliver about 25% less RMS power, it should come as no surprise that this is the Ferrari of subwoofers to get.
It will deliver clean-sounding bass that actually rattles the double-glazed windows of a 6-year old home when cranked to barely tolerable levels. And don't worry about blowing this beauty; it has automatic protection circuitry that will shut anything down before it harms itself. Tried cranking the subwoofer all the way and it performed admirably in this regard. That said, with the volume only turned up 1/2 way on the back of the subwoofer, I was hearing a pile of money slapped down on a desk with a huge audible THUMP...in a Spongebob cartoon. A cartoon, for crying out loud!
I put it through the motions, including the opening capital starship battle of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It was a jaw-droppingly awesome experience. Even Rock Band 3 sounds better than before!
I highly recommend this subwoofer; it seems like a lot of money, but the quality of this speaker compared to others that are 1/2 its price is well worth the expenditure. Go for it!
This is a good subwoofer. Relatively compact, powerful, tight bass response. Easily rattles the walls when I wnat it to in our 14'x20' family room that is open to the rest of the house. In my system I crossover at 80 Hz, which seems to be about ideal for the speakers in use.
First, there is a huge difference in power between the Supercube III and the Supercube I. Even though the Supercube I doesn't seem that much bigger than the Supercube III when it's placed into position, the Supercube I is in fact a whole different animal!
Now that I have the Supercube I for six months I'm ready for a review. I do believe that it takes about 100 hours of paying time to get these subs broken in. Someone reviewing them the day after they set them up is not doing the sub justice.
Personally I find the Supercube I's base to be clean and crisp. I've had a Martin Logan Dynamo 700 and other DefTech subs and prefer the Supercube I to all of them. The bad side of this sub is that it is just a bit much for my room. I have it set way down to keep the neighbors happy and to keep it from overpowering the rest of my DefTech speaker layout.
In summary - GREAT SUB! But unless you have a really, really big listening environment to fill you could probably get by with a Supercube II or III.
I am more than pleased with the performance of this sub. I was able to get it used for only 600 bones, so I got it at a steal!!
As for the quality of sound, it is a much needed improvement over both my PF15 and the SCiii. The bass drum and guitar on music sounds very realistic. All the low end notes sound more like what the musicians intended.
As for home theater, it packs a punch. Although it does not seem to go as low as my PF15, it sounds better and more realistic. This sub has more than enough power to drive the transducers to the point were my old PF15 seems very ancient.
As for the build quality, it is very well put together in terms of the cabinet. One thing is that the glossy top is detachable and if not properly placed back on top, it will rattle. But that is an easy fix, just use some of the cloth on the spikes and you are good to go.
I highly recommend this sub. I have not heard any other subs in the $1200 range, but I feel that this is one incredible sub.
