My biggest annoyance with this sub is the auto-on function. There's no override on/off function. If I'm watching TV on a quiet evening, I rarely have the TV up enough for the sub to turn on. It turns on when it senses enough bass. That's the problem.
If you're watching something with no bass for awhile, the sub shuts off. I like to hear a constant range/timbre, even if there's only a little bass, so the sudden drop off in bass is quite annoying. For example, a male voice will sound normal, then when the sub shuts off I have a wtf moment because all the voices change timbre. Then, when there's enough noise to switch the sub back on, the timbre of everything changes back to normal. I would not buy this sub again for this reason.
**If you read the comments below, others have suggested turning up the receiver and turning down the volume on the sub itself. I have my ancient Onkyo DS575 set +15dB, which made the auto off less frequent. Quiet scenes will still shut off the sub.**
The "Onkyo SWK204" Bass Reflex powered subwoofer has a built in 230 watt amp which is more than adequate for the home theatre system I have installed in my large living/family room. It is a 10" cone subwoofer that is attractive yet non intrusive in a basic black with silver cone and sturdy enough weighing in at 26 pounds.
I am NOT a techie so I will only say that with so many of the new movie sound tracks reflecting low frequency effect (LFE), I was astounded at the difference this SW made in my home entertainment enjoyment. It has a frequency response of 25 Hz to 150 Hz and a continuously variable crossover (50Hz-200Hz) controlled by a cross over frequency control along with the customary volume control and a lighted standy mode.
There are certainly better and more powerful subwoofers out there and you will, of course, pay for the advanced power or features. As a home audio/visual amateur, I found this unit to be an acceptable and efficacious choice based on performance and price.

Not a very good sub. Sound quality was ok if you want to hold your hand against the front cabinet to keep the plastic grill from reverberating. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Joshua M. Destevens
Serious bass response. Seriously. The little green light in the front tells you the sub-woofer is powered on. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Gene Messina
