on January 31, 2018
Brings my sound to a whole new level. I have a pair of older (but expensive high end) great sounding tower speakers. Those speakers have 12 inch subs in them, and they do a great job at music reproduction. These were in my home theater and were paired with a small Yamaha subwoofer before . For movies,it got the job done, but I always felt like it could be better. I added this subwoofer, and now I see what I was missing. I also added a Polk audio Signature S35 center channel speaker which helps with movie dialog but offers no bass. I have my Home theater chairs on a riser that I built as a Bass Trap (see AVS Forum for details). I now get a lot more bass sound and "feel" in movies that have LFE sound effects without having the dialog and soundtrack blasting. I was definitely a worthwhile upgrade for me. If I had to choose which speaker made a bigger impact in my home theater (center channel vs subwoofer) I would definitely pick this subwoofer. I love the center channel, but it was pretty expensive (more than this sub) for only a marginal (yet noticeable) improvement. BTW, this sub does seem to make my front tower speakers sound better while playing music. I have them connected to the Subwoofer out on my Yamaha RX V675 receiver with the crossover set at 80Hz per Polk's recommendation. It seems to take a load off of the towers (sound wise) .
