Better than most HTIB subs
on September 2, 2012
I have had this sub for several years since they came out, it gets a good work out every weekend and some week nights playing movies from bluray. At first it was in my bed room 16x14 in an apartment and was more than powerful, not to much boominess that most ported subs have it sounded fairly tight but drops off qickly under 50 hz. Now I have moved into a house with a 20x17 bedroom and 17x30 living room that opens into the kitchen. I was a bit surprised that in movies even in that large space the sub was still able to give pleasing lfe effects when placed in a corner but in music it just doesn't have enough thump anymore. I let my Yamaha receiver auto adjust the sub levels and as usuall the gain dial is set to around the 10 to 11 o'clock position with crossover at 100 hz. I am shopping around now for another sub to supplement it but will now have to pay a lot more, I will probably end up with the emotiva or a similar wireless sub to make placement easier and use this one still right by the couch or similar. I have not had any problems with the sub and for the price it easily out does any HTIB sub, I will say it is great for a small room but runs out of steam once you go into a larger space.
For reference I am running a yamaha 6190 receiver to the emotiva upa-7 with infinity primus 362 fronts, 252 rears, the 350 center channel and then the ps38 sub. This is a good product but you should shop up to a larger sub especially if your going to eventually move into a larger space or just to have some more head room just in case.
