"Awesome and clear!"on by apovr6
Pros -Great deep bass for a 10 inch subwoofer
-Clear and Crisp
-Rear speaker hook up
-Room filling bass
Cons -No remote
Summary I love this sub! I have it hooked up to my Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K and I think it's great! I have the gain turned about 20% of the way up and it has the deepest clearest sound for the price. You can feel the bass everywhere and I love it. Definatly worth it! For music, movies(Blu-Ray) and games its absoulely great. Fills my entire 2 rooms large apartment with bass and complements the other 7 speakers I have hooked up, would recommend this subwoofer! Can only imagine what the 12 inch sounds like....must be overkill compared to the 10 inch for apartments/small houses.
Pros Its like a night club in my house. Didn't give it a full 5 of 5 cause I'm not a real audiophile. Just like my music base in my chest. which this delivers.
Cons Its the size of a small ottoman. Worried it might delaminate my wood floors with is subsonic blasts. : )
Summary Its everything and more than the sales guy at Circuit city said it would be. No buyers remorse at all. Very good value for the money. Makes our "Rock Band Xbox sessions feel like a real concert.
Pros Room filling bass, great frequency response, easy to set up
Cons bright light on the front, big
Summary I have yet to be dissappointed with a Klipsch product yet. This sub is no exception. This is a great addition to any home theater system. The frequency response allows it to be paired with a wide variety of speaker sets. I have a Klipsch Icon VC 25 center, two Klipsch Icon VF 35s, and four Klipsch Synergy III S1s. It matches almost flawlessly. I am very impressed witth the true shaking bass that it delivers. As the cnet review states, this sub sounds great with music and it sounds amazing with movies. The only complaints that I have, which are hardly complaints, more of petty annoyances, is that the light in front is very bright. It is a bright blue, and when all the lights are off it is really bright. And it is very large. Two things that I can definitely deal with when considering the cost and sound quality! Overall I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
"Perfection"on by brandon428
Pros Great deep powerful bass.
Cons None at all
Summary This is a fantastic sub. I was really blown away by its enormous power. This thing will shake the pictures right off the wall if you crank it up. I'd recommend this to anybody!
Pros Excellent low bass reproduction; fast response
Cons Unable to place items on cabinet.
Summary This was the best addition to my audio system I have made. The Klipsch Tangent 400s had very good bass response, but very low frequencies distorted at high volume. This sub filled in that void and changed my music and movie experience.
The manual recommends experimenting with different placement to determine the best sound and bass reproduction. I recommend the same. I initially had it set up in the middle of the front wall, but moved it to a corner and it made a noticable difference in the quality. In movies, storms and explosions now fill the room with bass without being overpowering.
The owner's manual does not tell you to not place items on the cabinet top. Though it may be common sense for some, I had to learn the hard way. Items will rattle, fall off, and possibly damage the cabinet. I recommend keeping the top and surrounding area clean of knick-knacks or other loose objects.
