I have a pair of Martin Logan Sequel speakers for my main 2 channel listening and have always been impressed with the bass the 8" drivers deliver. So when I setup my home theater, I got a Grotto sub and was really impressed with the definition and extension of the subwoofer. I've got a smaller system that features a pair of Mission speakers and a low cost receiver with a sub output and was looking for a low cost sub. I found this the Dynamo 300 for less than $250 on Amazon and thought I would give it a try.

It was delivered the next day (WOW) and is a bit smaller than the Grotto, but had the familiar look and feel of an American made product from Martin Logan. One problem was the port extension had come lose inside and needed to be reattached. Rather than send it back, I just took the amp out and fixed it myself. Setup was pretty easy with my Onkyo receiver, I set the crossover frequency at 100 and started playing with placement. After a couple of days of break in, playing with the placement and reducing the crossover in my receiver to 90, it started giving me the results I was looking for. It has enough power to fill my small room with very good bass and works well on movies and music. Don't let the 70 Watt rating fool you, this thing tumps.

The sound is accurate and tight. The extension is very good, it goes much lower than I expected and without being boomy like so many woofers. Some notes: Setup the system to crossover to take over where your main speakers leave off, as low as you can. My speakers can go down to 50 Hz but don't do a good job at anything below 80 Hz so I set the crossover at 90 Hz. At 100 Hz it was way to boomy. I then used the receiver crossover to remove anything below 90 Hz going to my main speakers and that made a huge improvement.

I was a bit hesitant to buy a Martin Logan sub at first. I know that sounds weird because, hey, it's Martin Logan, but there's a perfectly good reason. I was concerned that a company who makes speakers that sell for thousands of dollars would REALLY drop the ball when it came to a sub that sells for less than $200.

I read through all the reviews and got a good feel for what to expect. A sub that, at first, would sound a bit harsh, but that would "settle" as it moved past the break-in period.

I received it on the very same day predicted by the Amazon ordering system, and raced home to set it up, leaving work early and breaking several speed limits in the process. The packaging was solid, and the sub arrived in good condition.

After reading the manual, I proceeded to set it up in the front corner of my entertainment room. The reviews were right, it DOES sound a bit harsh and out-of-place at first. The bass hits were heavy and sort of distorted, but this was to be expected after reading through the manual as well as all of the prior customer reviews. I watched a couple of movies with good sound-tracks "The Dark Knight", "300", and "Braveheart" to see how it would integrate with my system. Although the sound did have that harsh edge, it still produced a much better overall theater presence than my sub-less system did the day before. I decided to break it in the quick way, and set up some streaming music to play continuously during the day while I was at work. After a few days of 8+ hours of music playing through it at a moderate volume, the edges started to smooth out and the sound became much more musical and transparent.

People say the best speaker is the one you forget is there, and that's exactly what this sub is.

The Dynamo 300 sub may seem to be under-spec'd for it's price. You can certainly buy larger subs for the money, but this sub does a very good job, being both accurate and fairly powerful. It produces very usable bass into the 30hz region and loads up well enough to create the effect of going even deeper. I've got a primary system consisting of Merlin speakers and Manley tube amps, but this small sub was bought for a 2nd system with Motion 4's and a Denon amp. It's doing an excellent job thus far and, in a medium sized room, can produce a satisfyingly musical bass-fill for small speakers. After a short break-in I found the the 300 was creating a very well blended and detailed accounting of itself. Pressed into action for movie material it handled the likes of Real Steel and King Kong with authority, though please remember that this sub is probably not suited to larger rooms for HT. I own a 10" audiophile sub that costs 6 times the price of this sub, yet the 300 sounds very much like a member of the more elite sub designs, which is quite an accomplishment at this price point. As I said, you can buy larger subs in this price range and get deeper bass, but you'll lose out on accuracy.
Now I know Martin Logan is serious about their image and products, so here are a couple of suggestions:
1) Get rid of the horrible spring speaker connections. They scream cheap on any modern product. Most people will probably use the LFE connections anyway, but every choice made still effects the overall impression of the product. I wish I had been at the meeting when this decision was made.
2) Consider making the crossover control a bit better so far as labeling it in greater detail. This way the user can easily keep track of what they're trying during setup.
