I bought this as an accompaniment to the M-Audio BX5a 5-inch BiAmplified Studio Monitor Speakers I use on my Mac (video editing). I wasn't getting that low frequency feedback I desired so I decided this might do the trick.

Trick it did and then some.

Be warned...this woofer is huge! and heavy. It's about half the size of a small washing machine and weighs in around 35lbs.

The instructions say never to place a subwoofer on a table or stereo stand but to find a sweet spot on the floor. As placing the item on the floor would have presented a significant tripping hazard I placed it on Auralex SubDude Subwoofer Isolation Riser, on my desk, and it woofs just fine.

This is bad boy. It will shatter windows and peel paint -- It will rattle houses and wake neighbors. But, if you're looking for that full bass sound this is your instrument.

Bought these to complement a pair of M Audio BX5A monitors as a bedroom listening system.

A great setup for me to listen to music. To produce music however I would stick to full range monitors unless you can get perfect placement and professionally metered calibration. For a bedroom system this is a bargain! I'd consider this reasonable for an entertainment PC too.

Features: Variable crossover works well, input level adjust is wide enough and I keep it down compared to the monitors. The foot pedal cutout/bypass is very nicely implemented in that it routes full range to the monitors when disabled and doesn't make a significant pop or click when toggled. If my kid is asleep in the room next door I just tap the pedal and no more boom, so easy. This would probably work well for apartment dwellers too.

Sound: Very good for listening 40-105ish db spl. Haven't found any fault with the amp, no static or hum. Default level is high, I wonder if it's matched to the bx8a which I don't have access to. Of course my placement is important here.

Setup: Good sized house, acoustically insulated walls, double pane windows. The room it's in has bare walls, hardwood floors, bare ceilings, 20x30', sub is placed about 1/3 down one of the long walls, bx5a's are placed on a dresser at 1/3 and 2/3 down the same long wall with tweeters at ear level when I'm lounging on my bed. The sub is on its bundled feet with about 30lbs of sandbag on top (which I use for yoga so they're in the room anyways, might as well pin the sub down).

I'm feeding the M Audio trio via TRS cabling from a little mixer that is fed by a squeezebox, a bluetooth stereo receiver and line feeds for laptops/ipods. Convenient not having to switch sources and to just have the laptop hop on wirelessly while lounging. Bx5A's set to half volume, sub set to one third.

Subwoofers are desirable, even addicting because they greatly improve the sound of music but they are also not without their problems! My first setup used balanced output from my Apogee Duet 2 audio interface connected to my MBP to the SBX10 with my BX8 speakers connected to the SBX10 as recommended by the instructions. This sounded great but when no music was playing there was a noticeable whine coming from the BX8s (the subwoofer was totally quiet). The whine is not present when the Duet is connected directly to the BX8s without an SBX10. I suspect the whine is caused by a strange interaction between the Duet 2 and the SBX10. I contacted M-audio support (more on that below) and Apogee support and both suggested there was a ground loop problem even though the whine was evident when the power for the Duet was coming only from the USB connection to the MBP which was running on batteries. This morning, with great effort (you would not believe the rats nest of cables I have to deal with) I setup the speakers and the Duet 2 with its external power supply which I don't usually need to use, all on the same power strip. The whine was still there... I should note this was not a 60 cycle hum but a much higher frequency.

Fortunately, I found an acceptable bypass by connecting everything through a Yamaha mixer and in that configuration the sound is clean as a whistle and I am able to have a PC with a Sound Blaster card, the MBP (via the Duet with balanced cable), an old Sony CD player and the TV all running through the mixer.

Bottom Line: Breathtaking sound! Use only balanced cables (TRS or XLR), and get a HumX if you have any hum problems.

I have had an Altec Lansing 2.1 system (200 watt), a Logitech Z-2300 system, and several others including Roland studio monitors and some Focal CMS 50s.

I was looking for a nice setup to give me high quality reference for recording but still be enjoyable as my main computer speakers.

I started with M-Audio BX5 studio monitors. The sound was MUCH clearer than the Logitech sound system but it didn't have much bass.

I upgraded to a Xonar Essence STX sound card (from an old Creative one) and I noticed an immediate difference in both bass and treble...but still not quite enough bass.

I then added this awesomely powerful and extremely accurate SBX10 subwoofer. The combination with the BX5s was unparalleled to anything I had experienced before. The sound was so realistic and vivid I could hardly believe it. For the price I was expecting a 'nice' sound system, but what I got was much better than just 'nice.'

The bass is just so tremendous (in a good way) I keep the woofer turned down to match the monitors. I love that it has the foot pedal so I can turn the woofer on and off. I added a USB volume control from Griffin that works very well.

There isn't much that I can say that is negative about this woofer, but one minor annoyance was the rubber ring that holds the grill in place had a very chemically smell to it. The smell did go away after a 2-3 weeks, but I feel like there are higher quality non-stinky rubber compounds available.

I did have some problems with low level hums (mainly when doing CPU or GPU intensive tasks).
