Top critical review
brilliantly musical, until it failed <5 years later.
on December 30, 2011
I had always been on the lookout for a good sub to cover the lower notes for my music, but just couldn't justify the $$$. Until, that is, I found this sub on a deal I couldn't refuse!
I'm into dance music, so quite demanding on fast, tight and deep bass to make those beats come alive. Quite simply, this sub transformed my system. The first test with Morcheeba smacked a big grin on my face! Hybrid and Lamb sounded simply amazing. No boominess, just clean beats with a hugely powerful impact: exactly what I was after.
Finally, the lacquer is of exceptional quality and the curvy enclosure sure is easy on the eye.
UPDATE: The sub worked amazing, while it did. Really brought out the bass in TV series, movies and music I'd no idea was there. However, its capacitor(s) failed 4.5 years later, after what I believe to have been mild use (never drove it to distortion or received any noise complaints from neighbors). Now it makes bass and, by the sound of it, popcorn :-/ Electronics are only covered by 1 year warranty. Not impressed with the shody parts/worksmanship, and no more Boston Acoustics components for me.
