    Sound great - unbeatable value!

    I purchased 2 of these to go in my basement theater. They compliment my bowers and Wilkins 600 anniversary edition 5.2.4 surround sound well. I have these on the iso feet which help significantly with vibrations but that is not what this review is about.

    These have plenty of power to fill my 16x30x7.5 room at half gain. They are tight, agile and sound big!

    Movies:

    These dig deep! They dip to frequencies below the human ears range which can make for cool effects. During movies with earthquakes the audio engineers will sometimes throw in really low frequencies that make your room shake with no perceived sound - these can handle that!!!

    Music:

    These are pretty quick and tight. They are not as tight as their sister, the sb1000 pro, but they are no slouch. I have not tried them in sealed mode but I don’t think it’s totally necessary as I’m 90% movies/TV.

    App/features:

    Use the app! Download REW, buy a microphone and dial these in! The difference is huge.

    SUMMARY:

    Nothing out there will touch the quality with the features of the pb1000 pro at this price point. I challenge anyone to find something that has the tech and sound under $600. It doesn’t exist.

    I do wish these came in different colors. That is the only room for improvement I see.

    Superb versatility.

    Superb versatility with the SVS PB 1000 Pro!

    My objective was to replace my 20 year old hard punching dual 12" 600W Pinnacle. The ol gal is humming and buzzing again.

    So I debating against ported or sealed and planned to add two subs, one on each side of my Paradigm tower speakers and in the corners of the room's walls. The common debate being ported is best for movies and sealed is best for music. When I learned that the ports can be switched closed and open with the use of the App the decision was easy. I purchased and installed two of the SVS PB 1000 Pros. I first performed and auto tune on my Pioneer Elite VSX receiver. Then I downloaded the SVS App onto my phone and started fine tuning. This was the fun part! The App is easy to use and absolutely amazing; allowing vast versatility in setting up the sub/s to my room size and listening preference. The app allows easy switching between the two subs and real time adjustments and most importantly it accommodates 3 presets to be saved; music, movie and custom. I dialed in my music using specific songs from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Natalie Merchant and KT Tunstall. I had so much fun shaking the walls of this old home to find my favorite settings. Then saved em to the "Music" presets on both subs. Switching between port open and closed with my selected music playing and neighbor bothering levels was paramount. Ports closed/sealed mode was so smooth with a knock out punches. I also found for my room environment with ports closed was that I preferred the polarity to be set negative. The low pass filter and volume adjustments allow easy fine tune matching to the main speakers, receiver volume, room environment and personal preference. Regarding movies, I opened the ports, bumped the volume up and saved to the movie preset. I am very happy with my decision. My neighbors, probably not. Lastly, the guy at BB was great and demo switched between ported and sealed SVS subs however he did not demo the App or appear to know that the ported sub ports could be closed using the App. It was in someone else's review that I learned of this feature and for me it's a game changer. Cheers and happy listening.

    SVS PB-1000 Pro Sub- Exceptional Sound and Quality

    Excellent product and salesmanship by Best Buy's Tanasbourne team - very dedicated to customer service and satisfaction, which is why I've been a customer for decades. These subs have a deservedly stellar reputation. Two have plenty of power to keep our floors shaking. Easy to tune with their onboard controls or use the Bluetooth app on your phone for more detailed control. Zero regrets getting two - the bass envelops the entire room, movies are incredibly realistic and music will shake you to your core.

    Audiophile Sub

    Subwoofer enclosure seems to be stronger than compressed wood.

    Subwoofer enclosure is very heavy.

    Subwoofer cone seems to be sturdy specialized material. Not old black paper design.

    Grill cover is secure extremely well. Once you insert the grill, it will take maneuvering to remove the grill.

    The subwoofer was easy to connect to the phone app.

    And the phone application was not difficult to navigate.

    I also purchased the bluetooth connection that I could connect my sub to my preamp. The bluetooth connection has worked seamlessly. Please note that this is the base model sub that will connect with bluetooth.

    Great Subwoofer

    I needed to replace a dead subwooder, and I was debating between this and the PB-2000 pro model, but decided to go with this one. It is perfect for my needs, and far outperforms the velodyne I previously used.

    Tiny Monster

    Very clean, musical, and accurate sounding sub. Bass is very controlled and articulated, something that many larger subs struggle with. It does an excellent job at disappearing from the room, and never sounds pushed. If you have a small to medium room you won't regret this little beast

    Musical subwoofer pairs well with KEF LS50W2

    Compact in size. Can pump out clean prodigious bass and pairs easily with the KEF LS50 Wireless 2. Minimal fuss to set up. Works well with the KEF App. You will need to hit a certain volume on your main speakers to activate the subwoofer. On the KEFs, it's about 35 to 40. No regrets

    This is a nice upgrade from the Def Tech Supercube that served me well for years. This sub provides room filling deep base at a reasonable price point. It's helped take my movie watching to the next level. Base heavy scenes like the opening of Star Wars Episode III and the race in Ready Player One really steal the show.

    Huge upgrade

    Had a Klipsch 12" sub previously which I also purchased from Best Buy and wasn't bad, but relocated to a home with a larger space to fill with more hard space and decided on this to beef up low end. Wow; again, wow, huge difference; using a sub platform which deadens the sound on a hard maple floor and this thing seamlessly takes all of the wow and flutter and transforms it into low end heaven; using it with primary JBL studio monitors with 12"/5"/1" and secondary Audio Technica with 10"/3"/1" and it enhances the low end of these speakers while seamlessly giving me BIG bottom. Love this sub!

    Deep, rich bass

    The Polk Audio React Wireless Subwoofer is an easy to setup subwoofer that delivers powerful, high-quality bass!

    Design

    The React Wireless Subwoofer is easy to setup an pair. There is light on the back that tells you when it's paired. It has a solid casing around the sides and the top - without visible places for sound to escape. If you look at the bottom you will see a 7" speaker facing down and a large hole for bass to escape as well. I uploaded a picture of this for you to see. The design is very effective!

    Sound - Bass

    I was actually surprised by how much I liked having the bass of a true subwoofer - as opposed to speakers with "good" bass. I thought it would only be good for action movies with loud explosions or things like that. I was really surprised when I started noticing, even in things like documentaries, there are times where there is lower pitched background music or sound effects and in those situations, the bass is more subtle but it does the same sort of thing as surround sound, bringing you more fully into the scene. The bass just fills the room and makes you feel more engaged with the person talking or the scene in the show/movie, etc. The bass was deep, clear, and solid. So it doesn't need to be loud and annoying - though it can get loud, but it can be rich, deep, and full, at a low volume that's pleasant and just adds ambiance. It's what I was looking for in a sub! The remote included with the React Soundbar has buttons on it for bass up/down which is coinvent too.

    Impressed!!

    I admit that I was not prepared for the amount of bass the subwoofer produced. This subwoofer is powerful and distinct in its sound. Because of the wireless design and easy setup, integration with my soundbar very seamless. After using this product, I'm unable to go back to a home theater setup without this subwoofer in particular. It would be nice to use this with other devices, but this is a must-have upgrade if you own other compatible Polk Audio product.

    Paired with my React Sound Bar

    The woofer packs a HUGE punch when paired with a compatible device. I paired this with my React Bar and I can't tell you how much it just made everything sound so much better. For a Sub, it looks rather nice too.

    Box has the Sub itself, power cord and instruction book. Setup was literally the easiest thing ever. I'm not kidding. You push the Pairing button for 3 seconds on the bar and Alexa says ready to pair then you push the Pairing button on the woofer itself for 3 seconds and done. Other than the power cord, it is completely wireless and can be placed literally anywhere. I put mine next to my TV stand.

    If you plan on getting the React Sound Bar, I HIGHLY suggest you grab this woofer at the same time.

    Must have to get good base with polk soundbar

    If you have the polk soundbar, this is a must-have addition. The soundbar does a decent job but the experience with the bass from the sub is what you really want. Since its wireless, you just plug it in and and press sync on the soundbar and sub to get them to sync.

    This is the Bass you are looking for...

    In reviewing the soundbar individually is a disservice in my opinion. I did use the sound bar alone, then added the subwoofer, and lastly added the wireless speakers for a full surround sound system. As a single unit, namely the soundbar, you can find better ones out there because you absolutely need a subwoofer, in this case a wireless subwoofer to at least get the bass side of the sounds. I personally have an open floor plan in our house and living room. Because of this, there are no smaller rooms and walls to bounce off. With the further addition of the wireless speakers it absolutely sings. The sounds watching a movie and listening to Spotify is a dream. It is really easy to connect Spotify to this soundbar.

    The installation was easy. The soundbar actually comes with both a HDMI and optical cable. Each can easily run twenty dollars per cord but Polk included everything you need here. In case you don't have an HDMI ARC connection, no problem! There's the optical connection, which, I think is an awesome connection as well. The soundbar requires you to download Amazon Alexa. In my case on my android device. From there, the soundbar's settings can be adjusted slightly with the EQ settings there. From there you need to connect the soundbar to your wifi network. The set up here is relatively easy. I say relative because my initial attempt failed even though I have Google Mesh as my network. I just attempted the second time to connect the device through Alexa and it connected pretty smoothly. The onboard EQ settings work pretty well, with the option to adjust the bass and tremble a bit. All in all, the soundbar looks good and sounds ok as a stand alone unitl The integration with Amazon Alexa was seamless and you pretty much use Alexa as your Hub. The Alexa functionality is actually better than my other Alexa enabled speakers. There's no false triggers, the sound is there and the LED line is pleasing to the eyes. Phone calls are done through the Alexa app as well. This use was clear and I had no issues using this function.

    In adding the wireless subwoofer, this made a huge difference on how the movies and music sounds. You can feel and hear it pretty crisp and hits the bass lines just enough but not annoying. Even at full bass. Connecting was simple. You place the wireless subwoofer where you want it, plug it in and then press the pair button on the soundbar first to pair and then on the wireless subwoofer for a few seconds.

    Then the final piece I think is essential in this setup is the wireless speakers. The pairing is just like with the wireless subwoofer, you press the button on the soundbar to pair and then go to each speaker to press the button to pair. This method was pretty simple and worked the first time. I got an additional prompt saying that the subwoofer pairing has failed but it was already connected. So you may get that you may not. The sounds from the wireless speakers were simple and did it's job. You can use the soundbar's remote to adjust the volume of these speakers in case you have placed them a bit off center to your listening area.

    With all three components combined, this is a system that sound fantastic. I have a much more powered system without the wireless speakers but to me the wireless speakers fill in the gap in what is missing in my home theater experience that I longed for. Especially when theaters are not fully opened yet.

    Do I recommend this wireless subwoofer? I have to say this is a MUST buy with the soundbar. I am not sure why it is not bundled with the soundbar. Without it, I feel that you are missing some of the great sounds out there.

    Works well with the Polk React Sound Bar!

    This Polk React Wireless Subwoofer is a great addition to the Polk React Sound Bar! It provides some very nice bass which of course improves the audio experience and provides greater depth to your content. It is really nice that this is wireless because that allows you plenty of flexibility in choosing where to place it since you don’t have to hard wire it to the sound bar. You do of course have to plug it into power, but other than that, it is completely wireless. Pairing it to the React sound bar was really easy and after that it just worked.

    Overall, this subwoofer will definitely enhance your audio experience with Polk React Sound Bar. If you also add the Polk SR2 surround speakers along with this and the sound bar, you will have a very immersive audio system that provides great sound quality and is very easy to set up!

    Excellent Subwoofer For The Polk React Soundbar!

    Received the Polk React soundbar and subwoofer and I must say you really will love the sound with its addition! It is wireless and I heard no unusual noises or popping once it easily connected. All good with excellent room filling bass response! In my humble opinion a MUST HAVE for your soundbar setup, although the bar sounded fine even without it when I tested it. It only works with the REACT soundbar. Nice slim shape and I recommend the purchase!

    Larger than life sound....and size

    Setting up an outdoor Sonance system, I was excited to get a subwoofer for fullness. When it was delivered, I gasped at the large size of the sub. I was about ready to send it back because of the size factor.

    Instead, I had everything installed and was blown away by the overall sound quality. This large sub is integral to making the system work.

    Following installation, I realized that this could be buried about halfway, which makes a difference. It doesn’t overwhelm the landscape as it does out of the box.

    I would buy it again.

    Fit, Finish and Sound are perfect

    I bought this sub to replace 2 emotiva Ultra 12's and also bought a set of the SVS Ultra towers. All 3 are beasts and are some of the best workmanship I have seen in a speaker company in 40 years. I also have a set of Martin Logan SL3"s next to them and use the sub for both.

    Let me explain, I don't listen to all 4 speakers at the same time but switch between each pair depending on what I'm listening to. I'm using Emotiva Mono Block amps on both and the SVS are the best kept secret out there.

    Now back to the sub. The cool thing is that it's a sealed enclosure which gives me very tight musical bass. I'm not a surround sound guy but 2.1 guy. The app that controls the sub is awesome. Sit back and work it from your listening position. The thing is a piece of art and sounds amazing.

    BUY ONE!!!

    Seamless and Thunderous Addition to A7000 Soundbar

    Sony's new HT-A7000 soundbar is great on its own, but there's no denying the benefits of a discrete, standalone subwoofer. Sony has introduced two options of wireless subwoofers to pair with the A7000: the more compact 200W SW3 subwoofer, and this 300W SW5 subwoofer, which is an absolute beast. If you have the room (and cash) to spare, the SW5 subwoofer is an essential add-on for the A7000 soundbar.

    === SETUP AND CONFIGURATION (5 Stars) ===

    The soundbar connects wirelessly to the A7000, so all you need to do is plug it into a power outlet. Even though the A7000 is sold separately, it pairs instantly and automatically with the soundbar. All I had to do was turn on the soundbar, then plug in the SW5 to a power outlet, and wait for the light on the front of the subwoofer to turn green. Within about 5 seconds, the subwoofer was paired with the soundbar and I was ready to go. If you have trouble connecting the subwoofer automatically, you can attempt a manual connection through the settings menu (Home > Setup > Advanced Settings > Speaker Settings > Wireless Speaker Settings > Start Manual Linking). Once paried, the soundbar turns on and off with the soundbar. A solid red light on the front indicates that the subwoofer is off ("standby mode"). A solid green light means that it is on and connected to your soundbar. Once successfully paired, I recommend running the "sound field optimization" wizard again from the settings menu.

    === DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY (5 Stars) ===

    This is a large, bulky subwoofer, but luckily it has a very premium design. It weighs over 28 pounds and is about 16 inches high, 11 inches wide, and 16.5 inches deep. So it will certainly take up a sizeable chunk of your living room floor. The sides of the SW5 are wrapped in a textured leather-like material that is very soft and fingerprint resistant. The mesh on the front of the subwoofer blends in seamlessly with that of the A7000. The base of the subwoofer is a glossy black that adds a nice bit of contrast from the rest of the unit.

    === SOUND QUALITY (5 Stars) ===

    Simply put, the sound produced from this subwoofer is absolutely thunderous and takes an already excellent soundbar to new heights. The volume of the subwoofer can be adjusted on the soundbar's remote control. Anything above a level 4 or 5 seems like overkill for my setup. Even at higher levels, there I have not noticed any distortion at all. It produces, clean, crisp, punchy bass, appearing to reach very low frequencies that lesser subwoofers simply can't touch. I watched the 4K disc of Mad Max: Fury Road (one of my demo discs for low-frequency effects) immediately after installing the A7000 and SW5 subwoofer. I can safely say that watching this movie with the SW5 is the best I have ever heard it, and I have owned quite a few subwoofers over the years. The SW5 is undoubtedly one of the best subwoofers designed to be used with a soundbar, but it might be overkill for those with smaller living rooms or in apartment/townhome settings. I haven't had a chance to test the smaller, 200W SW3 subwoofer, but I would encourage those with smaller setups or less demanding audio requirements to look at that model.

    === OVERALL ===

    I won't go so far as to call this subwoofer a "must-own" if you have Sony's A7000 soundbar. The soundbar on its own is truly exceptional. But if you are serious about your home theater setup and getting the best possible sound from a seamless and easy-to-use system, then the SW5 subwoofer is a no-brainer. It is certainly expensive, but it's clear that Sony is targeting the premium audio market with its new line of soundbars and subwoofers. The SW5 is priced in line with its closest competitors and, in my opinion, offers unmatched design, sound, and ease of use. Part of me is upset that Sony did not bundle a subwoofer with the purchase of the A7000 soundbar. On the other hand, there's no way they could have included a subwoofer of this caliber and kept the price competitive. I appreciate the modular nature of the A7000, allowing users to add subwoofers and speakers if they so choose. I'm confident that the SW5 is going to provide many hours and years of home theater enjoyment. Highly recommended!

    A "Must-Have" for the Sony HT-A7000 Soundbar

    The Sony SA-SW5 is Sony's latest flagship subwoofer for the HT-A7000 soundbar or the Sony HT-A9 4-speaker set. This subwoofer comes with a power cable & paperwork. The subwoofer comes with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

    Rather than go over ALL the specs which you can already find on this Bestbuy.com page, I'll try to give more observations of those specs instead.

    DISCLAIMER: I have all 3 components for the complete surround experience:

    1) HT-A7000 7.1.2ch Soundbar

    2) SA-SW5 300W Subwoofer (Review for this product)

    3) SA-RS3S Wireless Rear Speakers for the HT-A7000

    PROS:

    -----------

    * Deep, rich, submersive bass

    * Easy connectivity to the Sony HT-A7000 soundbar.

    * Wired connections are super easy - power cable only.

    * It connects to the soundbar as part of the soundbar setup via Bluetooth (BT). No issues, simple interface and hookup.

    * It has a down-firing and front-firing driver with open ports on the bottom on every side allowing for 360-degree bass emmitance.

    * I watched 2 online movies in 4K - The Tomorrow War (Amazon) and Zack Snyder's Justice League (HBO Max). Both featured surround sound and both impressed with immersion experience. I felt like I was in the middle of the action (with the sub and wireless speakers setup included). The explosions really came to life with the use of this sub. The chairs/couch vibrate like you're there in the middle of the action - only a sub can really do that.

    CONS:

    -----------

    * It can only be used with specific "other" Sony products. It can't be used as a standalone sub for an amplifier system.

    OTHER OBSERVATIONS:

    -----------

    * It's a beast of a sub weighing in at nearly 30 lbs.

    * When the main soundbar is turned off, the subwoofer is automatically turned off as well.

    * When the sub is ON, the LED on the front bottom of the unit turns GREEN. When the sub is OFF, it turns RED.

    CONCLUSION:

    =====================

    The concept of this product is simple - provide deep, rich bass sound to music and movies. It does just that with simplicity. 300W of power goes a long way when you want your room to come alive. I believe the sub is a must-have for any soundbar, a priority ahead of rear wireless speakers. You won't be disappointed with this sub. It gives you want you want in the low frequency range. Nice work, Sony. (I did reviews for the other 2 products in this line as well if you enjoyed this review.)

    I got this sub to go along with the A7000 soundbar, and it replaced a Sonos system with the room shaking subwoofer. I did not think I could get better sound and deeper bass, but I did!

    The A7000 sounds amazing on it's own, but adding the subwoofer along with the rears, is a mindblowing upgrade. This is a heavy, heavy sub, unlike the lightweight ones that come with most soundbars. This is worthy of the price. Setup was as easy as setting up the rears, plug it in, hit the link button and run through the connection process on the soundbars tv menu. You can adjust the sub's output on the soundbars remote control. I picked a movie that has Dolby Atmos, and let the fun begin. Thankfully, I live on the first floor of my condo complex, otherwise I would have to keep the volume down. The bass is booming on this sub, shaking the room just the right amount. As i turned it up louder and louder, my smile got bigger and bigger.

    I know the A7000 comes with a hefty price tag, but if you're going to invest in a new home theater system, adding this subwoofer is a must, you won't regret it!

    Helps Bring Movies to Life, and Depth to Music

    This little guy packs a punch and really lives up to that old saying, “You get what you pay for.” It adds some great texture to what the great umph that the soundbar provides. I have it sitting about 15 feet away from me when watching movies and you can feel those low frequencies. During my rewatch of The Matrix, my new AppleTV remote started vibrating on the couch next to me. This really helps to drive that ‘home cinema’ experience, home.

    Just as impressive as the low frequencies are, the setup process was just as great. You just need to find a spot for it in your media/living room, and plug it in. That’s it! The soundbar found it and connected to it automatically. No wizards, no setup menus. It found the subwoofer and connected to it immediately.

    I would say that this should be a definite add-on if you are considering the HT-7000 soundbar. I love it and would eagerly recommend it.

    Beast of a subwoofer

    Note that this subwoofer is being reviewed as part of the entire 7.1.2 channel speaker system including the SA-RS3S rear speakers and HF-A7000 sound bar.

    If Star Trek’s holodeck existed, this would be the sound system they use. My previous system was the Sony HT-Z9F, and I wanted a new sound bar that had a more memorable model number. That and the fact that my old one was no longer reliable. Often, there would be a delay of 5 to 10 seconds before the sound would come through after turning on the TV.

    The setup of the A7000 system is about as easy as it gets. The wireless rears and subwoofer connect automatically to the sound bar. Once that’s done, you can run an auto-configuration in which the sound bar will play some tones to measure the speaker placement. No more pulling out a tape measure to check distance, though you still can if you want.

    I thought the sound of my old Z9F, however, was fantastic. But Sony has upped the sound quality even more in the A7000. The A7000 is a hefty sound bar and no doubt its size helps it create the enormous sound stage it produces. It has speakers that direct sound forward, upwards, as well as towards the side. And each of those speakers is engineered for hitting just the right acoustic. When connected to the wireless rear speakers and subwoofer, the result is a rich, full, sound the envelopes you. Watching UltraHD movies on Netflix, for example, makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the action.

    Sony also has a setting called Immersive Audio Enhancement (AE) to “convert” regular audio as if it were 7.1.2. Initially I thought it would sound too artificial. Obviously if the source signal is not 7.1.2, the sound bar can’t actually direct sound to the correct location. But once I got used to Immersive AE’s simulation, turning it off made the sound noticeably less rich.

    Like many sound bars, there is a separate volume setting to punch up the sound of voice. Whereas I had maxed out that setting on the Z9F, dialogue from the A7000 was perfectly discernible without needing to adjust the voice volume.

    Though the speaker system aims squarely for watching movies and shows, its 360 Reality Audio implementation is also remarkable for music services that offer premium quality sound: Amazon Music HD (included with their Unlimited plan), Tidal and Nugs.net. Though these services sound great with headphones, hearing this quality of music in a room speaker system is liberating.

    There are a couple of negatives, and for that, I’d really rate this as 4.5 stars. First, the rear spears sound great as expected, but they don’t fire upwards. Instead, they are standard configuration rears. Second, the 300W subwoofer is a beast and I can understand why it’s at additional cost. At the price point of the sound bar by itself, however, I think it would be a better value if Sony had at least included the 200W subwoofer, and perhaps the rear speakers as well.

    In any case, this system delivers premium sound with ease of install and ease of use. The sound bar by itself will enhance any room. But the addition of the wireless rear and subwoofer speakers adds an amazing dimension not to be missed.

    Sub for the HT A7000-A must buy with the sound bar

    I have to address the elephant in the room. Which is the price. The soundbar alone costs two times as much as my actual TV. But it's like putting a corvette engine in a beetle's body. Which means it can be done and has been done. In other words, the soundbar and it's components do to discriminate in making your TV better than it can be without a soundbar. Honestly, this is a true flag ship sound system that Sony has released here. I mean when I got the soundbar, it's almost as long as my 65 inch TV. To boot it's large and heavy because it's 11 speakers stuffed into this soundbar. The unboxing has everything you need including a high speed HDMI cable. The set up was simple as you can get. Connect to an ARC/eARC port on your TV and corresponding port on the soundbar and you are good to go! The different thing about this soundbar is that you can actually go into the settings on the TV. This will give you the place to go into the settings of the soundbar to connect to your favorite smart assistants being Alexa or Google. I opted for both but each will require a dedicated smart device to operate. My prior soundbar system had Alexa built in which was super convenient, even though I am a Google household rather than Alexa. The built in Alexa gave me more access to the Alexa ecosystem than just the app on my device, which was fun. However this does not have a built in smart assistant. Rather it has a built in chromecast, which is kind of weird to me. For me I know chromecast is a device to cast videos and audio, not just audio. It's not a bad thing ,but I do not see myself using this feature, because my TV has chromecast built in already. I would have preferred a built in smart assistant but that's ok, I have a few google speakers to perform this if I want it.

    Now to the sound. It is robust and sounds great but having subwoofer in my old system, I had to test out the other components like the compatible subwoofer and rear speaker system. Install is easier than plug and play. It's just plug and place! All the components paired without me doing a thing. With everything connected, it felt like when Voltron forms from the 5 components, it just feels right. The bass from the subwoofer is nice and clear and precise, where the rear speakers bring in the rear and do give the true 360 experience that Sony advertises. Even the automatic setting to ensure the correct balance is done wirelessly and is done from it's speakers and microphones to calculate the best balance from each other. So of course, you will need to be not in the line of sound when you set this up. And because of this, there is not setting to equalize. It is done through the automatic setting in the app that can be viewed on your TV. It kind of reminds me of a projector menu but it works. In that setting, besides the assigning your preferred smart assistant, you can also set up Spotify that is paired with Alexa in a way. This way, is not a bad way by any means. It's just....let's say different,

    In playing multiple formats of movies in ultra HD on Netflix to blasting music on Spotify, this system sings when everything is in sync with each other. I love the highs and bass when you need it and is not muddy with no distortion what so ever.

    So would I recommend this product? This sub is a no-brainer. If spending this much money I highly recommend getting this sub. The sounds from this is so well done and in a discreet package to boot.

    Looking for powerful quality BASS? This is the one

    This Subwoofer, which is designed for the a7000 Sony Soundbar, is one of the best subwoofers I have ever own, not only visually but great bass performer as well. Many of my previous subwoofer, produces tiny little “flaws” at certain moment with some movies. On this one I didn’t notice any flaw at all, only pure and neat bass.

    It is rated 300watts, and definitely it got all that power. On top of my previous Subwoofer I had a couple of ornaments, that were part of my home decoration, when I move them to the top of this Sub, I made the mistake to turn up the volume to the maximum, and the ornaments jumped to the floor.

    As well as the rest of the team (the A7000 and rear speakers), this unit comes with pluggable power cord. For me it was something that I have been waiting for a long time. My wife is an extreme cleaner, mopping and sweeping all the time and every time I have to move my old sub, it was a headache trying to find the Power outlet, which was unreachable and then to disconnect it and reconnect it back again. Now it is easy, just disconnect the power cord from the unit.

    You can get 12 levels of Bass, very neat, I have a couple of songs that I always use a way for measurement, Royals by Lord, Come Together by The Beatles. Not all the subs can perform the bass really well at the maximum volume with these songs, but this one pass by far my test. But when I put Movies like Avengers End Game, or Star wars, the battles couldn’t sound more realistic with the bass that this sub produce.

    The design is very elegant, even if its size is big it looks nice in my living room. The sides are round not only for cosmetic reasons but because Sony found out that it is best for sound performance and they are covered in a kind of leather material that feels soft and high quality. It match perfectly with the look of the a7000 soundbar, keeping the visual harmony of the whole team

    The setup is simple, once you go through the onscreen setup in the A7000, you select add wireless speakers, run again the Sound optimization Tool that ins part of the A7000 setup and in few second it will be ready to rock

    Red light indicates that a speaker is power off or standby mode. Green light indicates that it is power on and connected to the soundbar.

    This is a high end premium quality subwoofer, that you definitely will appreciate. And the perfect match, esthetically and great bass performer for the A7000 Soundbar.

    Great bass and depth of sound

    This subwoofer sounds amazing and had deep bass. I like that it has it’s own volume and frequency controls. I feel like I have a movie theater in my living room.

    The only thing I was not happy about that it needs a single cable to operate from the receiver. By which it was not included with the sub at the time of purchase. Also , something the sales team forgot to inform me of. You pay that much for a single subwoofer and they can not throw in cable with it.

    Excellent choice matched with appropriate gear

    This matches very well with the B&W 603 towers I bought along with it (we also have B&W 600 series center, but I do my critical listening in stereo). It's worth spending time adjusting this; if your receiver has a calibration procedure you should do so.

    The bass is tight and as deep as can reasonbly be expected from a 10" driver in a small enclosure. We have a fairly large listening area with cathedral ceiling and have no problem filling it with this with minimal distortion.

    This makes a real difference with music with strong low bass content -- third movement of Saint-Saens's Organ symphony, or the "Goddess of Thunder" Alejandra Villarreal's bass with The Warning. I'm not a big movie devotee so can't speak to low frequency effects. If you want 20 Hz or below you need to be looking at something bigger, but not much music goes much below 25-30 Hz.

    Must have item for bare floors/Fits ALL SUBS!!!

    These or some type of foam padding is a must have item if your subwoofer is resting on hardwood or any non-carpeted flooring. The feet will remove any resonating that occurs when subs are places on bare floor. Your subwoofer will sound cleaner with less room rattling.

    Theae feet are compatible with subwoofers or speakers from ALL MANUFACTURERS !!!!

    Svs included screws of various sizes to fit all of your standard screw patterns.

    Good Add-On

    A nice add-on to your sub if you're needing to prevent floor(wooden) and wall vibration, which can hinder how you're hearing the sub. It is a little ugly, but it does it's job.

    Three SVS subs, a pair of the PB-1000 and one PC13 Ultra on wood floors. Like the other reviewer stated, cuts down if not eliminates the vibrations through the floor, which can be very annoying. Also helped with the boomyness of the subs. I would purchase again.

    Great bass and depth of sound

    This subwoofer sounds amazing and had deep bass. I like that it has it’s own volume and frequency controls. I feel like I have a movie theater in my living room.

    The only thing I was not happy about that it needs a single cable to operate from the receiver. By which it was not included with the sub at the time of purchase. Also , something the sales team forgot to inform me of. You pay that much for a single subwoofer and they can not throw in cable with it.

    I wanted to replace a 25 year old Energy Subwoofer. This smaller unit packs a lot more punch in a much smaller footprint.

    This speaker coupled with two B&W bookshelf speakers really brings action movies to life.

    Excellent choice matched with appropriate gear

    This matches very well with the B&W 603 towers I bought along with it (we also have B&W 600 series center, but I do my critical listening in stereo). It's worth spending time adjusting this; if your receiver has a calibration procedure you should do so.

    The bass is tight and as deep as can reasonbly be expected from a 10" driver in a small enclosure. We have a fairly large listening area with cathedral ceiling and have no problem filling it with this with minimal distortion.

    This makes a real difference with music with strong low bass content -- third movement of Saint-Saens's Organ symphony, or the "Goddess of Thunder" Alejandra Villarreal's bass with The Warning. I'm not a big movie devotee so can't speak to low frequency effects. If you want 20 Hz or below you need to be looking at something bigger, but not much music goes much below 25-30 Hz.

    Great choice for small or medium listening rooms

    I purchased the KEF Kube 10b to complement a pair of LS50 Metas in my 2-channel setup. I'm very pleased with the performance as well as build quality and can highly recommend the Kube 10b in small to medium rooms especially for music. It wasn't difficult to find the right location in the room as well as "dialing in" the settings regarding low pass and type of EQ (three choices including on wall, in room, etc) to achieve the best blending with the LS50s (may incorporate a MiniDSP later to fine tune). My guess is that it would be a good choice for HT as well but you might need two to get the best result in larger rooms. For "bass heads" or high volume HT applications it might make more sense to purchase a ported subwoofer or two or plan on two of these or the 12b models.

I had listened to SVS and a few others in the magnolia room and was leaning towards one of the other brands.

    Great Sub

    First off, UPS sucks as a shipper. When I went to pick up the sub at the Store (ship to store), it looked like UPS did a flying jump kick into the side of the box! Thankfully, there is no detectable damage to the sub. The only thing I can think of is that the box is about 80lbs, and UPS uses a machine to squeeze the box from the sides to pick it up. Terrible any way you look at it.

    As for the size, it is big! 22Lx17Wx20.5H.

    Sound wise, it is much better than my older Velodyne DPS4000 sound (miss the velodyne remote though).

    There are some buttons on the back of it to adjust volume, etc, but it's all digital with blue dot lights, no numbers. You should be using the SVS Bluetooth app for the sub to adjust it.

    I could really tell the strength of the sub when I watched the Netflix series - Lost in Space - S1 Eps9 (at the approx 3min and 13min mark) & even Edge of Tomorrow's opening scene. The sustain of the sub is awesome! Night and day difference from my old sub. Of course, my old sub was 200w and this one is 550w.

    SVS Support is top notch I have to say! Any problem or issue, they will take care of you. They will even send you port plugs free of charge if you want them (used for music).

    Overall, really impressed with the product.

    I was able to use a 10% coupon that comes with a BB credit card and finance for 24mos.

    Fills our Large Room With Boom, SVS is top-notch!

    For the past 15 years we had been using an Infinity PS10 subwoofer. When that finally quit we had the opportunity to upgrade. Since my system is all Klipsch Reference Premiere I had my eye on Klipsch SPL 150W for a long time. However, reviews I had read indicated Klipsch has issues with pre-mature failure of amps. My search led me to SVS, and boy am I glad it did. This PB2000Pro is nothing but excellence. It is a very large subwoofer so make sure you have the room for it, but it drops down into the 16 Hz range where most other subwoofers give up in the upper 20's or low 30's. The mobile App and bluetooth connection allows you to sit in your chair and tune it in, which is extremely helpful. This is a dual port subwoofer, and is great for our large 16x31 family room. I have setting on -10 and 5 on the sub and receiver, so there is plenty of headroom. There is even an option through the electronics on the subwoofer to run it in Sealed Mode (with optional port plugs that SVS provided me free of charge), for those of you that might listen to a lot of music this may be handy, although I think this thing handles music great. Overall, as long as this can fit in your room, you will not be unhappy with the PB2000Pro. One last note, SVS is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with. They helped me decide on the best Subwoofer for my situation, and are so responsive and helpful. If I could give this 10 stars I would!

    A Musical Subwoofer

    I used this for music only , have not tried for movies. Following the recommendation from The Next Best thing studio and PS Audio to add a subwoofer to stereo listening, I gave it a try. I was already contented with my pair of Klipsch bookshelf speakers, adding this greatly enhanced the bass. Bass goes down deeper and fuller. The sub disappears physically, the added lows seems to come from the 2 bookshelf speakers. Listening to Diana Krall and Norah Jones would never be the same. It's more livelier than without the subwoofer.

    Bad Boy!

    Make no mistake, SVS Ultra subwoofers are high priced, but they are worth every penny. The performance between movies and music is simply breathtaking. I pay for clean, tight bass and that is exactly what the SB16-Ultra delivers. The fact that you have options to the settings via remote, App or front panel is just crazy. I started with 1 and was so impressed that I ordered a 2nd for a dual setup. If you are in the market for a subwoofer that will amaze you with performance, don't hesitate to look at the SB16-Ultra, you'll be more than satisfied.

    not for the reruns, its for the entertainment

    let's set aside how incredible this sounds, Let's not mention how the bass hits you yet the booms are so smooth going in and out of the thump. Not going to bring up how beautiful the piano finish is or have its presence has people asking whaaaaaaa. The only thing that impressed me... Bluetooth connected app to control how this masterpiece can be fine tuned to make the audiophile in me giddy like i was a kid with my first walkman

    Absolutely Perfect

    It's just...... PERFECT. I bought this to replace a 20 year old JBL s120II. OMG, what a difference. I have a Denon X4200W with Martin Logan Motion 60's for the L & R and a Motion 50 for the center and it REALLY matches well with them. No need to look at the Dynamo 1100 or the 1600 if this option is available. If a demo model at the Magnolia is available..... TAKE IT!!!

    The SVS app is iffy

    Size does matter.

    This subwoofer outperforms anything my local Best Buy has to offer. For anyone who's new to home theater this product might seem huge. But if you want deep bass with sub 20hz frequency response this subwoofer is the best Best Buy has to offer in the sealed subwoofer department. Granted I prefer ported subwoofers, The ported version of this product "svs pb16 ultra" is about twice its size and wouldn't sit well with my wife having something that large in our living room. The sb16 ultra is the best home hometheater subwoofer I've heard to date ported or sealed. I've demoed everything from Martin Logan to B&W at Best Buy none of them comes close to the dynamics this subwoofer provides. Im saving up to purchase another one.

    Audiophile grade product

    I’ve had a Velodyne FSR 15 and a Sunfire Signature. This one surpasses both of those in not only visceral impact but more importantly, detail. This sub will resolve more of your music and movies then you thought was there. But, it is a gentleman; it will not speak when there is nothing to say. It will not make bad recordings sound good; they will sound as recorded: bad. Good recordings, however will sound amazing. Be prepared to pull out all your favorite music and play it again, for the first time. And movies.... well it will rock your world. In my modest 2200 cubic foot living room, it ripples through the floor with thunderous impact. When ever I demo this thing with an action movie friends and family just laugh at the ridiculous detail and slam this thing delivers. Oh and it’s durable. It will shut off before any damage happens when driven to extremes. I know; I’ve done it. This thing is bulletproof. The SVS support team is just icing on the cake. These guys are just as crazy about audio gear as you are. Just buy it now and beg for forgiveness later.

    Large Boom from this 10" package

    Sonace is mostly known for in wall speakers. Having an external enclosed subwoofer seems a bit of a new venture for them. With the name “Magnolia” I have to assume this may be a new partnership with Best Buy and Sonace.

    The Magnolia 10” 275 watt subwoofer is an all black enclosure with a very minimalistic look. The removable mesh woofer cover has a small, shiny black Sonace logo, Other than that, this subwoofer just sits on the floor and isn’t noticed until it booms. I absolutely love the simplistic, minimal look. It is also an extremely solid and well made enclosure. It feels of high quality.

    Setup

    Setup is rather simple, I plugged a subwoofer cable from the left LFE into the port on my receiver. I do not have the ability to connect 2 cables so I opted for just the single cable. I ran a sound test and adjusted the volume level, crossover, and phase to match my other speakers. The dials are simple to move and I quickly was able to match the tone of my other speakers.

    Sound

    This subwoofer offers nice base and has a very clean sound. Large explosions or bass heavy music really pop with the power of this 275 watt woofer. The bass is deep and vibrates the floor in a nice atmospheric way. Getting the crossover setting correct, the bass never overpowered the rest of the sound stage and kept in line with the entire environment. It tightened when necessary but vocals and other midrange audio the bass was minimal and simply enhanced the overall audio track.

    Final Thoughts

    I am very impressed with what Sonace has done with this subwoofer. I enjoy the sound levels it brings to the table and will be making this the primary subwoofer in my surround sound setup. I am excited to see if Sonace produced some other external speakers and comes up with more out of wall units I can check out. If this Magnolia line is indeed a Best Buy partnership, I think this is a win for Best Buy. If the name is strictly a coincidence, so be it, still a great sub and I’m glad to see it on Best Buy’s shelves.

    Entry Level Subwoofer

    About the Sub

    The Sonance MS10SUB is a 10” front firing cabinet subwoofer. It’s about 1 cubic foot in size, and has a matte black finish. The polypropylene cone has a rubber surround and the woofer is covered by a black cloth screen. The rear panel of the sub requires a 1” minimum clearance for ventilation.

    How I Tested It

    I focused on using a variety of music to test the subwoofer. 10” subwoofers are typically flexible and can produce punchy accurate bass hits as well as rolling bass, so I picked a wide variety of music that would demonstrate this. The music genres included rap, R&B, rock, pop, country, jazz, and reggae. I tested at different volumes and changed the settings of the subwoofer to try to find the sound that I was looking for.

    Sound Results

    After testing the subwoofer for a while I found its sound to be fairly average. I wasn’t entirely disappointed, but I wasn’t really wowed either. It did well with rolling base, but suffered with the punchy bass, especially at higher volumes. As with many 10” woofers, it struggled to hit and maintain at the lowest frequencies. This is fairly typical with a 10”, so if you’re looking for really low lows, then you may want a 12” or larger. In some songs the bass got a little lost. It seemed to sound better and stay more controlled at lower volume levels.

    I did adjust the settings to tune the sub to the best sound that it could offer. On the back panel there is a volume, crossover, and phasing control knob. For my taste, I preferred the phasing to be set at 180 and the crossover to be placed near 95HZ. The crossover goes up to 200HZ, but this allowed a lot of extra noise so I adjusted it to play 95HZ and below.

    Here is a quick list of Pros and Cons for the MS10SUB.

    Pros

    *Small compact design

    *Good rolling bass production

    *Included typical control settings

    *Has a ground lift that can help eliminate noise in the speaker

    Cons

    *Average sounding speaker

    *Punchy bass was not clean at higher volumes

    *Lower bass frequencies distorted

    *I took the grill off to see the speaker and now the grill is loose.

    *The price point for this sub

    I’m giving the Sonance MS10SUB 3 stars. It seems to be an average subwoofer with a lot of competition at its price point. I like the smaller footprint, but the quality of the bass suffers, especially at higher volumes. Sound quality is always dependent on the ear of the listener so I recommend listening to a few subwoofers in the price range and see which one moves you.

    Sleek and great sounding sub

    First of all, and most importantly, this sub sounds excellent at all volume levels, For most, that's probably all you need to know. :) It's sleek finish looks great, and will accentuate most setups. I added this sub to my current 7.1.4 setup. It easily fills the room with deep, clear bass. I'm very impressed with how nice it sounds. I threw plenty of different media types at it as well, from different devices. I tried live TV (from a cable box), Xbox One X (streaming Netflix, Games and Blu Rays) and PS4 Pro. The bass remained very clear and was consistently excellent. Again, very happy with this sub.

    Pros: Excellent sound, easy to set up, very elegantly designed

    Cons: Doesn't include a sub cable (that's just a nitpick), it's difficult to find really anything I didn't like about this sub.

    Awesome sub

    I listen to a lot of music and needed an upgrade from my 300w Logitech speakers/sub combo. My house is pretty small and I paired this sub with the klipsch speakers pictured and it sounds amazing for the price (I got it on sale for like $300). Shakes the whole house if I turn it up. Sounds great in movies too. Had it for about 7 months now and so far I have no complaints.

    A phenomenal upgrade from my previous 10" sub

    For the past few years I had been contemplating upgrading to a better sub than the one that came with my HTIB from about 4-5 years ago. There certainly wasn't anything wrong with it other than it just lacked the oomph that I really wanted in movies and games. A lot of the issues it had were due to it's being underpowered (100W vs this 275W).

    I decided to give the Sonance a shot after a bit of research. I liked the customization that it offered over my old sub and I had a feeling that it would deliver the sound I wanted without being "too big" since I don't have a dedicated home theater room/setup.

    WOW. It would seem that I made a good choice because this thing is AMAZING. I actually didn't realize just how much my previous sub was letting me down until I plugged this thing in. For fun, I decided to leave my old sub plugged in and simply switch the input to each sub while watching a movie. There was literally no comparison. The Sonance just absolutely obliterated my old sub in every single way.

    After some initial tuning to match it up with my other speakers and some adjustments on the receiver, bass is delivered more cleanly and with more punch and breadth across the entire frequency range. Particularly in the lower 20-80Hz range where you get that deep rumbling sound. Previously, the only way I could get that effect with my old sub was to turn the system volume way down and turn the bass volume on the sub itself up much higher. Obviously, I'm not going to do that every time.

    The one feature that I've absolutely enjoyed tremendously (outside of the sound of course) has been this sub's ability to turn on or off by itself by detecting whether or not my receiver was on. My old sub did not have this ability. Moreover, and this was VERY surprising to me, it apparently knows when I'm wearing headphones while playing games late at night and will still turn itself off even though my receiver remains on since my PS4 is run to the receiver and then to the TV. That's AWESOME.

    I certainly am very happy that I choose this sub from Sonance. I've already started pulling out a lot of old movies and watching them over again. It is THAT GOOD.

    Good for a office or very small room.

    I set this up in my main listening are of my family room. I positioned it in the best sounding spot of the room, then ran Auddessy on my Denon avr.

    After a hour of tweaking and setting up, this small 10" sealed sub was very unimpressive to me. My family room is 21x 14 with vaulted ceilings. I currently have a 7.2.2 setup in this room. I would find this sub to be best suited for smaller rooms, like a office, or a smaller bedroom setup.

    I thought this was going to have more impressive output, but I was definitely disapointed. I currently have it setup in my my master bedroom in a corner nook, with my current 5.1 setup. It sounds ok, but not thunderous. It has about the same output as my old ported 10" Polk sub.

    I love sonace speakers, and have other outdoor and in wall/in ceiling speakers by them. But, this sub wasnt what I was expecting. For me there are much better subs for the same amount of money, that perform much better.

    Excellent Sub for small / mid sized sounds systems

    I bought this sub to replace a 10-inch, 100 watt Polk sub and noticed a difference immediately! The bass absolutely filled the room, without sounding muddy or boomy, and did not lack for volume. Long story short, if you're thinking about getting this sub to listen to music or watch movies in a small-to-medium sized room then you will not be disappointed.

    I mainly use my system for watching movies so I ran it through a barrage of demos. One scene in particular really demonstrated the versatility of this sub; Batman vs. Bane in the sewer from "The Dark Knight Rises". This might not be the first scene that comes to mind when demoing a sub but trust me, it is perfect for testing precision and nuance; the subtle, constant rumble of water in the background; the deep, padded thump of punches traded by the characters; the imposing echo of Bane's footsteps against the metal grate; and finally the thunderous boom when he blows the explosive charges and rubble comes crashing down around our hero. This sub proved that it could handle more than just being low and loud.

    Demos continued: Mad Mad: Fury Road, the opening of Bumblebee, Kong: Skull Island, Ghost in the Shell, The Matrix, Saving Private Ryan, Master and Commander, the list goes on and on and it performed stellar on all of them. The only time the limits of this sub seemed to catch up to it was the opening rumbles of Blade Runner: 2049, a formidable demo indeed. And that's not to say that the low end or volume was an issue but there was quite a bit of reverberation from the sub itself, which can be a bit distracting. Even then, it may have just been the structural integrity of my basement failing and not the speaker itself.

    So to reiterate, this is a beast of sub that is 100% worth the money (especially if you can get it on sale).

    Great Subwoofer.

    I had a great 100W Sony Subwoofer. It lasted for seven year. I had to find something similar. I made a lot of research, listened to lot of subwoofers and eventually bought a 100W Klipsch subwoofer. I immediately had to return it for poor performance.

    I decided on the Polk 200W subwoofer.

    It is a great subwoofer and has a good range of low to high sounds

    Polk Subwoofer

    I replaced an Infinity BU-2 that just sounded too 'boomy' and I could never get it to sound right. I have an Onkyo TX-RZ830 with a separate Parasound amp. My front speakers are not great but I did hear a difference after playing with the receiver settings. I'm limited on placement options. I have never heard a really good system so I'm not sure how it should sound; the sub still sounds a little boomy. It's built like a tank and I would buy it again.

    Sarge’s Subwoofer

    I purchased this Subwoofer to go along with my five Infinity ERS-110DT ceiling mounted speakers and Yamaha RX-V581 AV receiver. My old sub fizzled out a while back and this Sub has added substantially to my sound system. I turn it up about halfway and it has plenty of bass for me. I listen to a lot of YouTube worship music and some movies and tv programming. I use the Line/LFE inputs since my home is wired for it, so I can’t comment on the wireless option.

    good for small room

    Overall very impressive sub. Much smaller than the pictures show. Small & compact but does pack a punch. Replaced an Onkyo of the same size, this one produces the lower end much more cleanly. It does clip when pushed a bit too hard (so did the Onkyo), such as loud explosions but some tuning will probably take care of it. My room is already wired for the sub so I cannot say how the wireless feature works. Bought on a sale so happy with the price but overall I wish I sprung for the larger sub and still do. 3 weeks later the 10" is on sale for the same price as this was and best buy won't let me return. Very annoying.

    Good for a small room but watch for the BB sales and spring for the 10" if you can.

    I bought this to add to my current surround sound setup. Same as the other one I already have and both provide clear accurate and loud bass.

    Small in size, but large in sound!

    Works seamlessly. Has great low frequency response and will bring your movies and music to life. The subwoofer is pre-paired so no pairing needed. Just plug the transmitter into the subwoofer, and the other wire into your receiver and you will be good to go.

    Novice Audiophile review.

    Perfect size for my IKEA cubicle,and bedroom...I have this paired with the Bowers & Wilkins - 4" 100W Satellite Speaker and the

    Bowers & Wilkins - 600 Series Anniversary Edition 2-way Bookshelf Speaker w/6.5" midbass and it really adds the low end those were missing.Now I feel the bass and it is so good.I am a novice Audiophile and recently came into a little cash so decided to splurge a bit.My one complaint is the price seems a bit on the high side,although it is a quality piece of gear,I feel like a 100 dollars cheaper would be a better price.

    Deep base sound when listening to music and watching movies. Combined with the speaker pairs the quality is great and makes entertainment enjoyable.

    Have this setup in home theater and you feel the ground or floor shake when watching movies.

    Large Boom from this 10" package

    Sonace is mostly known for in wall speakers. Having an external enclosed subwoofer seems a bit of a new venture for them. With the name “Magnolia” I have to assume this may be a new partnership with Best Buy and Sonace.

    The Magnolia 10” 275 watt subwoofer is an all black enclosure with a very minimalistic look. The removable mesh woofer cover has a small, shiny black Sonace logo, Other than that, this subwoofer just sits on the floor and isn’t noticed until it booms. I absolutely love the simplistic, minimal look. It is also an extremely solid and well made enclosure. It feels of high quality.

    Setup

    Setup is rather simple, I plugged a subwoofer cable from the left LFE into the port on my receiver. I do not have the ability to connect 2 cables so I opted for just the single cable. I ran a sound test and adjusted the volume level, crossover, and phase to match my other speakers. The dials are simple to move and I quickly was able to match the tone of my other speakers.

    Sound

    This subwoofer offers nice base and has a very clean sound. Large explosions or bass heavy music really pop with the power of this 275 watt woofer. The bass is deep and vibrates the floor in a nice atmospheric way. Getting the crossover setting correct, the bass never overpowered the rest of the sound stage and kept in line with the entire environment. It tightened when necessary but vocals and other midrange audio the bass was minimal and simply enhanced the overall audio track.

    Final Thoughts

    I am very impressed with what Sonace has done with this subwoofer. I enjoy the sound levels it brings to the table and will be making this the primary subwoofer in my surround sound setup. I am excited to see if Sonace produced some other external speakers and comes up with more out of wall units I can check out. If this Magnolia line is indeed a Best Buy partnership, I think this is a win for Best Buy. If the name is strictly a coincidence, so be it, still a great sub and I’m glad to see it on Best Buy’s shelves.

    Entry Level Subwoofer

    About the Sub

    The Sonance MS10SUB is a 10” front firing cabinet subwoofer. It’s about 1 cubic foot in size, and has a matte black finish. The polypropylene cone has a rubber surround and the woofer is covered by a black cloth screen. The rear panel of the sub requires a 1” minimum clearance for ventilation.

    How I Tested It

    I focused on using a variety of music to test the subwoofer. 10” subwoofers are typically flexible and can produce punchy accurate bass hits as well as rolling bass, so I picked a wide variety of music that would demonstrate this. The music genres included rap, R&B, rock, pop, country, jazz, and reggae. I tested at different volumes and changed the settings of the subwoofer to try to find the sound that I was looking for.

    Sound Results

    After testing the subwoofer for a while I found its sound to be fairly average. I wasn’t entirely disappointed, but I wasn’t really wowed either. It did well with rolling base, but suffered with the punchy bass, especially at higher volumes. As with many 10” woofers, it struggled to hit and maintain at the lowest frequencies. This is fairly typical with a 10”, so if you’re looking for really low lows, then you may want a 12” or larger. In some songs the bass got a little lost. It seemed to sound better and stay more controlled at lower volume levels.

    I did adjust the settings to tune the sub to the best sound that it could offer. On the back panel there is a volume, crossover, and phasing control knob. For my taste, I preferred the phasing to be set at 180 and the crossover to be placed near 95HZ. The crossover goes up to 200HZ, but this allowed a lot of extra noise so I adjusted it to play 95HZ and below.

    Here is a quick list of Pros and Cons for the MS10SUB.

    Pros

    *Small compact design

    *Good rolling bass production

    *Included typical control settings

    *Has a ground lift that can help eliminate noise in the speaker

    Cons

    *Average sounding speaker

    *Punchy bass was not clean at higher volumes

    *Lower bass frequencies distorted

    *I took the grill off to see the speaker and now the grill is loose.

    *The price point for this sub

    I’m giving the Sonance MS10SUB 3 stars. It seems to be an average subwoofer with a lot of competition at its price point. I like the smaller footprint, but the quality of the bass suffers, especially at higher volumes. Sound quality is always dependent on the ear of the listener so I recommend listening to a few subwoofers in the price range and see which one moves you.

    Sleek and great sounding sub

    First of all, and most importantly, this sub sounds excellent at all volume levels, For most, that's probably all you need to know. :) It's sleek finish looks great, and will accentuate most setups. I added this sub to my current 7.1.4 setup. It easily fills the room with deep, clear bass. I'm very impressed with how nice it sounds. I threw plenty of different media types at it as well, from different devices. I tried live TV (from a cable box), Xbox One X (streaming Netflix, Games and Blu Rays) and PS4 Pro. The bass remained very clear and was consistently excellent. Again, very happy with this sub.

    Pros: Excellent sound, easy to set up, very elegantly designed

    Cons: Doesn't include a sub cable (that's just a nitpick), it's difficult to find really anything I didn't like about this sub.

    Awesome sub

    I listen to a lot of music and needed an upgrade from my 300w Logitech speakers/sub combo. My house is pretty small and I paired this sub with the klipsch speakers pictured and it sounds amazing for the price (I got it on sale for like $300). Shakes the whole house if I turn it up. Sounds great in movies too. Had it for about 7 months now and so far I have no complaints.

    A phenomenal upgrade from my previous 10" sub

    For the past few years I had been contemplating upgrading to a better sub than the one that came with my HTIB from about 4-5 years ago. There certainly wasn't anything wrong with it other than it just lacked the oomph that I really wanted in movies and games. A lot of the issues it had were due to it's being underpowered (100W vs this 275W).

    I decided to give the Sonance a shot after a bit of research. I liked the customization that it offered over my old sub and I had a feeling that it would deliver the sound I wanted without being "too big" since I don't have a dedicated home theater room/setup.

    WOW. It would seem that I made a good choice because this thing is AMAZING. I actually didn't realize just how much my previous sub was letting me down until I plugged this thing in. For fun, I decided to leave my old sub plugged in and simply switch the input to each sub while watching a movie. There was literally no comparison. The Sonance just absolutely obliterated my old sub in every single way.

    After some initial tuning to match it up with my other speakers and some adjustments on the receiver, bass is delivered more cleanly and with more punch and breadth across the entire frequency range. Particularly in the lower 20-80Hz range where you get that deep rumbling sound. Previously, the only way I could get that effect with my old sub was to turn the system volume way down and turn the bass volume on the sub itself up much higher. Obviously, I'm not going to do that every time.

    The one feature that I've absolutely enjoyed tremendously (outside of the sound of course) has been this sub's ability to turn on or off by itself by detecting whether or not my receiver was on. My old sub did not have this ability. Moreover, and this was VERY surprising to me, it apparently knows when I'm wearing headphones while playing games late at night and will still turn itself off even though my receiver remains on since my PS4 is run to the receiver and then to the TV. That's AWESOME.

    I certainly am very happy that I choose this sub from Sonance. I've already started pulling out a lot of old movies and watching them over again. It is THAT GOOD.

    Good for a office or very small room.

    I set this up in my main listening are of my family room. I positioned it in the best sounding spot of the room, then ran Auddessy on my Denon avr.

    After a hour of tweaking and setting up, this small 10" sealed sub was very unimpressive to me. My family room is 21x 14 with vaulted ceilings. I currently have a 7.2.2 setup in this room. I would find this sub to be best suited for smaller rooms, like a office, or a smaller bedroom setup.

    I thought this was going to have more impressive output, but I was definitely disapointed. I currently have it setup in my my master bedroom in a corner nook, with my current 5.1 setup. It sounds ok, but not thunderous. It has about the same output as my old ported 10" Polk sub.

    I love sonace speakers, and have other outdoor and in wall/in ceiling speakers by them. But, this sub wasnt what I was expecting. For me there are much better subs for the same amount of money, that perform much better.

    Quality audio

    This Sub earns 5 stars based on what it actually is/does. My previous Sub was a wall shaking, widow rattling beast with "SUB" par( pun intended) circuitry that failed with only three year of usage. Initially I was disappointed with the seeming lack of Umphf from the SVS, however the more I listened the more I came to admire the perfect balance of sound it brings to my small 5.1 setup. It compliments, not over powers it. So if you crave wall shaking window rattling wattage opt for the 2000 or 3000 series, I found the tight clean sound from the 1000, was all I needed.

    Pretty much what everyone is saying, it will deliver the rumble of the incoming spaceship before you hear it. This sub is to subsidize bass in the back of the room, Deftech BP9060s are up front. I essentially have to turn it down to less than half so Audyssey can even calibrate.I cannot imagine how much bass there would be if you got a larger version or a ported sub from them. Well made, not obscenely large. Its black.

    Punch to spare

    This thumps. I recently assembled a new home theater, with Denon's AVR-X3700H driving this and the rest of my Klipsch speakers: RP-6000Fs up front, RP-600C center channel, and RP-402S surrounds. When calibrating my system, the receiver had me drop the subwoofer gain to about 25 percent, so there is plenty of punch to spare but you wouldn't know it as you listen. Watching Tenet was an intense experience! Fully recommend this and the entire Klipsch line. Love it!

    I’ve had so many different subwoofers over the years, including Klipsch. This subwoofer is on my list of favorites. I wasn’t expecting the sound it puts out. I am comparing to the R-120SW and that’s a 12”, this one is by far a step up even only being a 10”. The bass has great definition, not boomy like I expected.

    Best sub for money

    I will admit I had a JBL 10 that was 100 watts I believe. It finally quit after 15 plus years, so, subs have come a long long way to say the least. My old sub was a down fire, I was worried about the forward facing cone. My tv sets in a corner, so my sub fits behind it, out of the way, however it is pretty lol.! But it sounds AWESOME! I turned up gain almost half, I did buy a new Dennon ARV, went through set up and man, I couldn't b happier. There's so many subs to choose from. I would say for the price, I got mine fir 489.00. Couldn't beat. I looked at the svs, but I really liked this one. Highly recommend.

    My speakers are all klipsch and that is another reason, just book shelf, 75 watt. But with the true 95 watt x 7, they sound great with this sub.

    (Wish I could get bigger speakers, but 100 watt max.) Bottom line. Buy it. You won't regret it. Sounds like a true theater just from sub!

It lacked the lows, smoothness and transitions that this sub has, so I returned it and now I have this sub in my bedroom. You don’t have to crank this sub to get quality sound and the construction is solid. This is a 10 inch driver but ported and in large enclosure. It will put most 12 inch subs to shame, ported or sealed. Now I have two and I enjoy deep bass downstairs and upstairs. There are many subs, smaller, larger, costlier, cheaper but none rivals SVS for value.

    Drop the bomb!

    I purchased this sub a few months ago. When I installed it initially I wasn't that impressed. So, I went through the Audyssey speaker calibration again and whoa!! It came alive! I've had subs from Polk Audio, PSB, Velodyne and others but this thing beats them all. The bass is subterranean and just blew me away. It rattles pictures on the walls and just makes me smile. Well, I liked it so much I've decided to go dual 10's and get another one. Just to even out the bass (so I tell my wife). I always say "it's for the family because everyone gets to enjoy it". And that's true.

    wow!

    I have been a B&W speaker owner for a long time. Love them but I did not have a great experience with the B&W ASW sub. Performance was average and it died on me after a while. I have been researching for a new sub for quite some time and finally decided on this SVS puppy. This thing is a BEAST!!! I got it paired with the rest of my B&W speakers (5.1 setup) and powered with a Denon receiver. We tested it yesterday with the 4K version of Avengers Endgame and the effects and the bass was out of this world!!! Highly recommended!

    SVS PB1000 Subwoofer

    This SVS 10 in subwoofer "per the specs it goes down to 19hz" and it sounds like it does when watching movies. It is impressive for it's small speaker size. I hope to get another one.

    Best sub I've ever owned

    You have not experienced bass until you've heard & felt an SVS sub. The PB-1000 i purchased is for my living room, and I'm currently debating between a PB-4000 and PB-16 Ultra for my theater. The low end is amazing on these things!

    Movie Theater Quality Subwoofer

    I paired this Bose 700 Subwoofer with my Bose 700 Soundbar and it has been really impressive so far, here is what I have experienced so far:

    PROS:

    - Out of the box this thing is visually very appealing. It's somewhat smaller than previous wireless subwoofer's that I have had, but it's by far the heaviest one I have had.

    - It is very simple to set up, you do it all through the Bose Mobile App that is required to set up the Soundbar and Subwoofer

    - The Sound / Bass is absolutely incredible. It really acts as a deep, rich aspect of your music or movie listening experience rather than over doing it and drowning out the noise. It really helps you feel apart of the sound and I am really happy with it's performance so far

    CONS:

    - Although set up was simple, getting there was not. The Bose App was difficult to work with at first and to discover my products. Once I got connected it was easy - so really this is a software related function more so than the device itself, so it could be fixed with an App Update.

    - Part of me likes how they are selling the Bose 700 Soundbar and 700 Subwoofer separately as some may only want the soundbar and want to save money. But to me it's really necessary for them to be paired together and it is pricey all together.

    - Speaking of Price, this a high end home theater system Bose is selling and they chose NOT to incorporate Dolby Atmos? That is swing and a miss to me - if they added Dolby Atmos I think it would attract even more buyers given the market push for this type of sound format.

    BOTTOM LINE: If you purchased the Bose 700 Soundbar, this is a must have. Although it's lacking Dolby Atmos support, it still sounds so good that it will really elevate everything you listen to through this speaker system and be worth the purchase.

    Omnidirectional, Distortion Free Bass

    The reverberating companion to the SoundTouch 300 Soundbar is this Acoustimas 300 Wireless Bass Module for even more electrifying listening enjoyment. It weighs 30 pounds and is, 12” W x 12” L x 15” H, containing a 10” woofer. For its compact size it packs a lot of audio engineering by Bose. It easily pairs, wirelessly, to the 300 Soundbar using the remote, included with the soundbar. The intensity level of the bass can also be increased or decreased by using the remote. At the Bose 'Support Center' you can download the Owners Guide for the Acoustimas 300 Wireless Bass Module. It is very comprehensive, detailed and includes many illustrations. If you have any issues you may find the solutions there, or, in the Owners' Community Blog.

    I consider myself an 'audiophile' with over 50 years of amateur experience in building Hi-Fidelity, stereo systems. This is my summary of this fantastic soundbar and subwoofer pairing. Keep in mind the Bose 300 Bass Module is built and configured specifically to operate with the SoundTouch 300 Soundbar. It is not a subwoofer component that you can use in any other system. The Acoustimas 300 is a wireless, powered subwoofer, which has its own built-in amplifier. This powered amp takes the load away from the smaller speakers in the soundbar when low frequency sound is reproduced in the bass module. Because bass demands more power at low frequencies, 20Hz to 80Hz, and less power as the frequency increases. The smaller speakers in the soundbar start to take over around 90Hz using Bose' PhaseGuide technology, which makes you feel like you are hearing sounds from areas of your room where there are no speakers. In my opinion one of the best characteristics of a good subwoofer is that it doesn't emit 'boomy' and late sounds out of sync with the satellite speakers (soundbar) at low frequency. Because of Bose Quiet Port technology this subwoofer module produces clear, vibrant, omnidirectional bass that you can't even tell where the low frequency sound is coming from. It surrounds your whole room, especially, after you calibrate both the soundbar and bass module using the proprietary, ADAPTIQ Calibration process. YooHoo!

    This is the primary reason why the Acoustimas 300 Bass Module compliments the soundbar to provide you with richer, more vibrant, realistic sounds that the soundbar alone can duplicate. The Bose Acoustimas 300 accomplishes that with success. And the construction of the bass module with its unique glass top probably has a lot to do with the amazing, crisp and deep, distortion free bass.

    This matched system was designed for you to conveniently connect to the ARC, HDMI port from your TV. It takes no power from your TV just the acoustical pass through signal. The Bose 300 Soundbar and Bass Module do not require connection to an A/V Receiver or Amplifier. However, you can connect the Bose 300 Soundbar to an A/V Receiver if you have the appropriate connections. I connected my A/V Receiver to the 300 Soundbar and was floored by the dynamic, awesome, sound. Since the bass module does not have an LFE port it cannot be connected to the A/V Receiver, but still operated through the soundbar. Although I have a graphic equalizer in my receiver, I did not need to use it. Instead I tried enhancing the sound through the various audio presets like concert hall, arena, movie, theater, gaming, etc. Unbelievable. WooHoo!

    The Acoustimas 300 does have a power saving mode so you can safely keep the unit plugged in all the time to an A/C outlet. It powers itself 'down' when not receiving a signal from the soundbar.

    While on the subject of 'Power' - I want to bring up surge protection for your home theater, TV, Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar and Acoustimas 300, and all other associated electronics. Protect your expensive, electronic equipment with appropriate surge protection. Better protectors exceed peak ratings of 1000 joules and 40,000 amperes. The higher the rating in joules, and the lower the let-through voltage, the better you are protecting your devices. The 300 soundbar, 300 bass module, subwoofer, and two optional, wireless speakers can all be protected using surge strips or a space-saving surge protector that sits over an existing wall outlet. It is too risky to go without it. If you take anything away from my review – please, consider adequate surge protection for your audio and electronic equipment.

    If you already have the SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, then the Acoustimas 300 Wireless Bass Module by now is a 'Must-Have'. I highly recommend the Acoustimas 300 Wireless Bass Module because of its significant, audio engineering features. No matter where you place this unit in your room you will not be able to tell where the dynamic sounds are coming from. It won't rattle your windows, or break glass, but it will provide you with quality, distortion free, acoustically matched music enjoyment. By adding the Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers you can also create a true 5.1 channel system of auditory sensation.

    Punchy full spectrum bass cube that delivers

    First, I would like to recommend that if you are interested in this Bass Module that you pair it with the excellent Bose Soundbar 700. It is a match made in heaven that delivers high-fidelity sound in any application. This review was written with perspective on the entire Bose 700 system (Soundbar 700 & Bass Module 700).

    Music is my life. I’ve been a musician for over 40 years and through that time I have developed a trained ear when it comes to sound. Up until now, I have always had components and separate speakers for surround. Enter the Bose 700 system. This Bass Module coupled with the excellent Bose 700 Soundbar, has made me rethink what is needed to achieve a fantastic result. So much, that I have dis-assembled my entire “man cave” surround stereo setup in favor of this simple, but elegant Bose system. What was once a receiver controlling all of my components, center channel, two main speakers, and two rear surround speakers, has simply become this two piece setup. Being clutter free and having less is more is important to us these days, as we have a one year old that can easily knock over speaker stands and much, much more.

    The sub and soundbar are crafted extremely well and are very solid in terms of hardware feel. They are both made of aluminum and have a black glass top which makes them super stout and easy to keep clean. The soundbar is about 38.5 inches wide and the sub is roughly a 12” cube in size. Both items blend in with any decor and look so good that you’ll want them to be seen. The remote is also very nice and with the Bose Music app you’ll have your Smart TV, Blu Ray, PS4, XBox, etc., all configured and working from this single remote in no time. A note on the Bose Music app / Alexa… Some reviewers have stated that the app needs a lot of work and that they can’t get it to work properly with any of their components and/or Alexa (more on Alexa later). I am not sure if recent updates have now solved the issues others have reported, but I have found this to be no issue whatsoever. I had Alexa, my Samsung TV, PS4, and SONY Blu Ray player all recognized and set up within minutes of downloading the app. FWIW, I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with Android 8.0

    Setting up your system… This system is ARC ready and will control all of your HDMI devices with ease. A quick web search will tell you everything you need to know about ARC and its benefits. When setting up your room, I highly recommend using the ADAPTIQ audio calibration system tool (provided in package) to “tune” your room. Every room is a different size and provides seating in different areas, making this step an important step in your setup. Once your room is tuned, everyone will enjoy great sound from any seat in the room. It is actually crazy how this two piece system can mimic an entire surround system so effectively. This is yet another reason why I was okay with getting rid of so many speakers to go down to this small system.

    The ever important sound quality... Being a new Bose product, I was expecting it to sound good, but not as good as it really does. Once properly configured, I was shocked at the clear crisp sound this combo was producing. The first thing I did was load up an HD title to test. The voice channel is superbly clear and punctual. The mains are full and have the perfect amount of depth. The sub connects to the soundbar wirelessly and provides the exact amount of bass needed to produce a cinema like experience. Whether watching a Superhero movie, listening to music, or getting a quick weather forecast from Alexa, you will be satisfied with the Bose 700 system. In the case of the Bose 700 system, size certainly does not matter. Long gone are the days of 15” main speakers. Through brainiac engineering and technological innovation, these days you can get impressive results from a much smaller footprint.

    Alexa… To be honest, this was not a big reason for me choosing this product, but now that I have it and have used it, I am not sure how I ever lived without it. We have been invited to upgrade our homes into smart homes more and more lately and I am slowly understanding why. Ease of use and quickness in our fast paced society is the bottom line with the way tech is trending. Being an Alexa noob, I am still scratching the surface of what it can offer, but I can see how huge the potential is. A good example of what I did once I had her all setup, was to simply try and ask her something, anything. I chose what came to mind first and said, “Alexa, play Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd.” Well guess what! She did it without fail, repeating / confirming to me, “Playing Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd on Amazon Music.” Hahaha, so awesome. I dialed up some Rolling Stones, some kids music, whatever I asked for, she found it. I even tried saying, “Alexa, turn volume up five” and she did that too. If you get the chance to mess with this, or if you are buying this system because of the fact that it is Alexa ready, you won’t be disappointed.

    If your store has this on demo, do yourself a favor and give that button a press. I can’t recommend this product enough.

    Excellent Subwoofer from Bose with Amazing Bass

    Bose Acoustimass 300 Subwoofer is excellent subwoofer and it is exceeded my expectation when it paired with Bose Soundtouch 300 sound bar.

    The packing was excellent and unpacking was very pleasant. I am impressed by the design of this subwoofer, weighing in at nearly 40 pounds and with the dimensions of a small table. The premium glass-top smooth exterior look stunning.

    Setup is very easy and able to configure with Bose Soundtouch 300 sound bar. Just follow the instructions given in manual and you should be sync the subwoofer with sound bar less than two minutes.

    As for as the bass itself, it can only be described as clear and powerful. Similar like Bose Soundtouch 300 sound bar, the audio feels as if it is coming from all around you instead of from a single point. This is due to “quietport” technology from Bose. The

    Adding Acoustimass 300 module to your SoundTouch 300 soundbar is a perfect combination for your home theater experience. You can add Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers can complete the package for a full 5.1 surround sound experience. Similar like Acoustimass Subwoofer module, these wireless surround speakers have a wireless range of 30 feet. They stand less than 4" high and blend nicely into your room.

    This is the best subwoofer made by Bose. I highly recommend this subwoofer to get premium sound quality and theater sound experience for your home theater setup.

    Awesome Bass Module!

    Bose Bass module 700 is a perfect companion for Bose Soundbar 700. Similar to the Soundbar, this bass module comes in a very sturdy box and has the same tempered glass top. Bass module is heavy so watch your back when you pick it up. The size is perfect and it easily blended in my living room with other electronics and furniture items. The product has a nice clean seamless look and the connections are on the back at the bottom. I have also added pictures to give readers an idea of the size of bass module. In the box you will also find power cord and instruction/safety booklet.

    Setup & Sound:

    Bose bass module 700 is easy to set up using the Bose music App. Once you connect the bass module to the power supply and place it at your desired location, you add the bass module as an accessory to your Soundbar in the Bose music app. That is it. The Soundbar and Bass module are wirelessly connected. A quick calibration using AdaptIQ can further improve the sound experience.

    Once connected, the Bass module produces chest thumping bass to give a fuller effect to the sound. I did not experience any lag/skipping between Soundbar and bass module as I used it for movies, music and even cartoons :-) . Another feature of the Bose music app is that you can increase/decreases the bass through the app to suit it to your needs. This bass module can definitely shake your floor during a Boeing take off, or will make your popcorn's fly away during those scary movie nights.

    Overall, an amazing product and a perfect Soundbar companion.

    A must buy!

    I mated this sub with a denon receiver. Placed it just to the right of my TV. Sent all low frequency below 80 to sub. Love it. Room size 10x12. At these prices buy 2 if your receiver has 2 outs. Next project? Atmos!

    Fair tor the price

    I honestly did not need a sub because i felt that my elac speakers gaved me enough bass for my music needs. I have a small room where i have my music/gaming 2.0 set up so i do not really need a lot of bass so i bought this on sale for a little kick in my bass. I use this sub only when watching movies and tv shows where bass is needed. As far as music goes i have this unpluged. The music i listen does not need that much bass. Over all i enjoy this sub but get on sale. This was gets pretty loud and could shake the walls in any room. Note bass is muddy but for the price is fair. If heavy bass is the only thing that matters then yes, buy these but if sound and balance is important then look else where.

    The magic ingredient for movie theater experience

    The Bose Bass Module 500 is the perfect companion to the Bose Soundbar 500. The subwoofer is the magic ingredient that allows the soundbar to produce that movie theater ambiance where you can feel the low rumble of a thunderstorm or the thumping approach of a dinosaur.

    Although compact in size, at loud settings it has enough oomph to annoy neighbors but at normal settings it offers deep and smooth bass that is not overpowering. Music generally sounds great although I think the bass produced is better suited for movies than some genres of music. It has a kind of boomy quality instead of being tight so it does really well for low rumble effects. The bass also seems more noticeable to me when playing music compared to watching movies where it can sometimes be subtle.

    Adding the subwoofer to the soundbar was easy. To do this, I plugged the subwoofer to an AC outlet and used the Bose Music App to add it to the soundbar. It detected the Bass Module 500 Subwoofer and I was able to easily paired it with the soundbar. I like that it is wireless so it can be placed at any convenient location rather than be tied to the soundbar. I have it placed next to my sofa.

    After pairing, the app reported that I had a Bass Module 700 instead of the Bass Module 500. That’s weird. I tried to redo everything by removing all accessory speakers and attempted to add the Bass Module 500 again but the same thing happened. The app keeps reporting that I have a Bass Module 700 after pairing. It probably doesn’t make much difference but I was worried that it might not calibrate the system correctly if it thought I had the more powerful 700 instead of the 500 paired to the soundbar. The app does allow you to adjust the bass level to suit your taste.

    Overall the Bose Soundbar 500 and Bose Bass Module 500 is a great home theater sound system for those who do not have the space for a true 5.1 surround sound setup. It is able to produce crystal clear audio with exceptional voice clarity along with the muscle to produce room thumping bass and the low rumble ambiance of a movie theater.

    Pretty Impressive Sub

    I purchased this Bass Module 500 together with the Bose Soundbar 500 about 4 months ago and my whole family is really loves the combo. It is hard to believe how powerful this little 10 inch cube is. It definitely takes any music or movies to a whole new level, you are really feeling it. Honestly, I normally put may be half of the volume for everything and it's pretty loud and powerful. Sometimes I'm scared that my neighbors downstairs will come and complain. I really love the design of this subwoofer, it's very elegant and sleek, matches well with my furniture. The size is very compact, not too heavy. I've owned other subwoofers in the past and they were bigger and bulkier with some soft fabric around that my cats scratched a lot. This one doesn't have any fabric around. it just has some hard porous surface on the sides. I like that it connects wirelessly to the Bose Soundbar 500 once you turn it on, makes it very easy to use. All I normally have to do to turn them both on is to turn on my bluetooth on the phone and it will automatically suggest the Soundbar 500, then I click to connect and done. It's faster then going to the Bose app. I normally like to play music on my phone during the day and at night sometimes we use a projector to watch a movie with my husband. One little suggestion that I can give is not to put it on the carpet because it will absorb some of the bass. We have a medium carpet and it has some foam underneath to make it cushiony. When I first put the subwoofer down on the carpet, I was not sure if it was on or not, then I placed it on the lower shelf of the TV stand and I could feel a dramatic difference right a way. So, after using this Bass Module 500 and the Soundbar 500 for 3 months, we believe that it was a good investment because can save money on going to the movie theater and watch something at home. Also, we are saving not only on movie tickets, but also on snacks. Usually in the movies food or snacks are highly overpriced for what it is, we can get some organic or natural snacks in the supermarket and eat at home while watching a movie. I think, this set would make a great gift for anyone who appreciates great quality electronics and likes to watch movies and listen to music at home. I had quite a few friends inquiring about it when they were in my house.

    Big Boom

    I love the boom and power the Bose Bass Module 500 puts out. I use the Module in conjunction with the Bose Soundbar. These two items together release pure sound quality. At times, when I’m in my shower and I can clearly hear the bass coming through my home. One of my favorite things to do is watch movies in the comfort of my home. The Bass Module 500 gives my movies a surround sound effect. The power is so great, I can feel like I’m in the theater if I want to. When I connect the Bose sound-bar to my Alexa App to play all my favorite music stations, The Bose Bass Module perfects the sound and projects quality boom. The Bluetooth feature is great, as it works with many of my other Bluetooth compatible items like my iPhone. The set up was simple. You use there Bose App and it takes you through the process step by step. I do wish the electrical cords were a little longer. I had to use an extension cod in order to hide my Module behind my chair. It does fit perfectly and very discreetly behind my chair. This is a perfect give for anyone who loves Home entertainement. It’s not bulky and it’s the perfect addition to any soundbar.

    Adds the perfect amount of bass

    The Bose subwoofer is a great companion to the Bose soundbar 500. This adds the extra lows that completes the soundbar, to give you a great home theater experience.

    The subwoofer has a premium look and feel to it, all while making it small enough as to not take up much space. It also matches the soundbar really well, in terms of design.

    The set up is very simple and straight forward. Once you get your soundbar set up through the Bose music app, it prompts you to add more devices. Simple push the button on the bottom of the subwoofer, and voila, connected.

    The bass is very clean. It maintains good lows, without distorting or bottoming out. Weather you're listening to music, or watching a movie, the subwoofer provides that extra level of bass that completes the experience.

    The subwoofer makes for the perfect companion to the Bose soundbar 500, which I highly recommend getting the two together. This really adds the complete package to a home theater.

    For a full theater experience, you need this sub

    This Bose 500 Subwoofer is really awesome, when paired with the Bose 500 Soundbar. I’ve had some other non-Bose soundbars that have been pretty good, but this one takes it up a notch. I watched several different types of shows/movies/sports that had commentary, music, cartoons, etc. Comparing it to my existing sound system, this one is more crisp, full and overall more realistic sounding. It sounds really good without the subwoofer, but if you want the true full movie experience, you must buy the Subwoofer. The best part was when I was watching a Transformers movie battle scene with vehicles flying across the screen, rockets blowing up, and my floor and walls rockin’. I honestly thought it was like a movie theater, and I could actually feel every moment in the movie. I had a smaller sub with my existing system, but even when it was turned way up, it was never even close to this Bose subwoofer.

    The place that the subwoofer sounded the best, was right next to the couch, closest to the TV. I moved the sub around and played the same part of the movie over and over. Yeah, it was actually fun to feel the rumble over and over. I have my couch set up in an L shape, and have the Subwoofer under an end table, with the bottom open section pointing into the room. Having it in the corner of the 2 couches (where they would connect like an “L”), made the sub a little too overpowering, and I was hearing the rumble a little too much, when it was turned up. Having it in the general direction of the TV, seemed better. However, I think if I had run through the AdaptIQ configuration in all the places, I bet it would have been able to adjust it accordingly. However, having it to the left of me, or away from the TV area, it didn’t quite seem ideal, so try to keep it in the general direction of the TV, as the majority of the sound is coming from that general area.

    Right out of the box, the packaging is well labeled (sort of like a mini puzzle), and it would be hard to be damaged when mailed. That is always my fear, when I have something mailed to me, versus picking it up in the store. No need to worry, Bose is well aware of it, and the packaging is perfect.

    You will need to download the Bose Music app to connect the subwoofer to the soundbar. I didn’t see that in the instruction guide, which surprised me. It connected the soundbar easily, and then had to do the same process when adding a subwoofer. To pair the subwoofer, click on the circle icon of the 500 soundbar in the bottom right corner of the dashboard. Click the “Settings” icon, then click the “Accessory Speakers.” Lastly, click the “+ Add Bose Accessory Speaker” and it will begin searching. With the 500 subwoofer, it requires that you push the circle button on the side near the bottom, next to the power cord (note: on the 700 Subwoofer, there is no pairing button on the unit, it will automatically show up if it is plugged in). I have a 700 and a 500 soundbar/subwoofer, but it will not allow you to connect a 700 sub and 500 sub together with the same soundbar. Trust me, I tried to add 2 different subs to the same soundbar, and really rock the house. But, unfortunately, it will only pair with the same version soundbar, so you can connect (2) 700 subs together with the 700 soundbar, but not a 700 and 500 sub to the 700 soundbar. However, you can connect (1) 500 subwoofer to the 700 soundbar, or (1) 700 subwoofer to the 500 soundbar. The 700 is a better subwoofer (larger too) at the higher volume, where you can really feel the thumping bass, but the 500 is no slouch either.

    Something that I have not heard of before, is the “Dialog Mode” option that adjusts the soundbar to have a better sound for programs that are dialog, such as Football games, or tv shows. It is different with movies, but I found that it increases the volume for the range where human voices fall into. For the subwoofer, I have my setting at +80 Bass, +30 treble, +0 Center Channel, and it sounds great overall. On the action-packed theater-style movies, I HIGHLY recommend turning the bass up to 100, and you will feel the floors rumble, no joke. I do really like the Equalizer-like adjustability for the sub and soundbar (-100 to +100 for bass/treble/Center Channel volume). Most others don’t have that capability. You can toggle the subwoofer on/off too, so if you are watching it late at night, while the baby is sleeping, you can simply toggle it off in the Accessories Settings, and it will turn off.

    In conclusion, this is by far the best sound system I have ever had, and I have had quite a few over the years, upgrading each time, different homes, different rooms and setups. I am a big Bose fan to begin with, purely based on the direct comparisons with other similar products, and it is extremely hard to beat the sound from a Bose speaker system.

    Where’s the T-Rex?!

    Bose continually captivates me with the sound that they produce from their products.

    When hooking up any new home theater system, the first thing we do is put on Jurassic park (where the T-Rex escapes its enclosure) to determine whether dinosaurs still walk the earth.

    I must say that this Bose subwoofer coupled with a Bose sound bar 500 does not disappoint! The ground trembles, glasses shake & furniture rattles and…the T-Rex still inspires fear and awe!

    With every step the base only seems to drop lower and lower & ultimately, we are satisfied that dinosaurs still walk the earth.

    You can’t go wrong with his Bose sound woofer and any one of the sound bars. And, if any complaint I have, it’s that they are a little bit more expensive than I’d like…notwithstanding it’s a great system to have for any home except townhomes. (You’re going to really upset your neighbors off if you crank this up in the house).

    Deep Rich Bass

    Hi am using this with the bows 500 sound bar and wow old do they make up hair. Clothes that you adjust the equalizer in an app on your phone see you can turn the bass up and down as you like as well as the volume and I have to say for this thing and I know it’s close but it is incredible. I am a particular person where it comes to using my audio quality and this far surpasses any sub woofer I have ever used in the past which is quite a few. I honestly cannot see the reason for someone to not purchase both of these together.

    Perfect companion for Bose Soundbar 500

    The Bose Bass Module 500 Subwoofer is a nice compact system with some oomph. This unit comes in at 10”w x 10”d x 9.5”h, which doesn’t take too much room and allows for placement flexibility. Not to mention that the Subwoofer is wireless. One thing to note is that the wireless capability is based on soundbar compatibility, which at this point seems to only be compatible with the Bose Soundbar 500 and Bose Soundbar 700. To set up the wireless connection, you must use the Bose app to do so. Set up was pretty easy, however the instructions could do a bit better job explaining which settings to go into. The wireless connection must be established through the Soundbar settings, not the app settings, which wasn’t too clear from the instructions. Once in the app, you must click on the Bose Soundbar icon (Soundbar must be set up first), then within settings click on Accessory Speakers. Add the accessory speaker and connection was seamless. Even though the Subwoofer is wireless, the unit does allow for audio connectivity via 3.5mm input jack. Which would allow you to use this subwoofer with other soundbars, however a big draw to this unit is the wireless connectivity. I have this unit connected with the Bose Soundbar 500 and it definitely amplifies the home theater experience as it makes the audio come more to life. Even though this unit is wireless, the connectivity is excellent. I have not experience and sort of lag from between the soundbar and subwoofer. A drawback to this unit that some may see is that it lacks customization. There are no dials or buttons to this unit, it is really just plug and play. Not that it is a bad thing as Bose does do a great job with their audio products. Some people may like to be able to fine tune their settings, which this cannot be done on the unit itself or the Bose. Most compact subwoofers probably don’t have this functionality anyways, but wanted to point that out. Other than that, this unit is looks to be a quality build and produces some good bass. If you are really into cinema or music and have purchase the Bose Soundbar 500 or 700, this unit will build on the audio experience. If you don’t have either of these soundbars, then you would not be leveraging this unit’s key feature which is the wireless connectivity.

    Plenty of wattage for a 15 x 20 room!

    One thing should be stressed is you need the adapter that has it's own app.

    Without it, you always be fiddling with the back panel controls. And I had to change to a forward firing speaker. If you have it facing the floor, (we have hardwood floors) you will vibrate the floor which is very annoying. All of my 5.1 speakers are Martin Logan. The quality is awesome!

    THE Sub Solution

    This sub really shines with music and is very competent at home theater. My room is small 22x16 so the 2000 pro is perfect. Sounds great watching all the 4K trailers on Apple TV. Especially the Transformer movies, MI movies and Gardians & X-men movies. My room rumbles distortion free. Blows away the Bose Lifestyle top of line. In fact different universe.

    As a musician I have very specific musical tastes. Here’s where 2000 Pro shines bright.

    Very clear powerful and precise. Diana Krall vocals never sound so deep and rich. King Crimson 3 drummer setup sounds like the drummers are in my living room and the clarity of Stanley Clarks bass on Romantic Warrior is stunning. Oh can’t forget the richness of John Myung bass and the power of Portnoys drums.

    To wrap this up if you listen to music absolutely get non ported sub for clarity punch and crispness if you love movies as well the pro 2000 is perfect , if you have a big space get the 3000 or 4000. If you watch MORE movies than music I’d probably get the SP version (ported). One thing for sure SVS subs are built incredibly well and sound amazing.

    I haven’t mentioned the APP which is seamless and works perfectly. If the app doesn’t connect for some reason just delete it and reinstall it works great and you adjust the settings from your listening position rather than getting up all the time to make adjustments. This sub really pound for pound beats subs costing twice as much! Also customer service is insane ! They engage they respond and stick by their products unconditionally!

    Awesome all around

    This is the first SVS subwoofer that I’ve heard or owned. Initially I wanted to buy the sb3000 but it breaks the $1k price point and size I was looking for in my space. Decided to go with this one in piano gloss finish. Upon delivery and setup, I was very impressed with the finish and look of the subwoofer. I hooked it up and initially was NOT impressed with its sound...very underwhelming. I went through all the setting and played with them to see how it effected the sound to my liking..reversing polarity made a huge difference, lower crossover to 60hz and backing the db to -20 made it disappear within my stereo. Once I got it dialed in...I started hearing bass in music I didn’t even know was there. A good demo is Bad Blood by Taylor Swift, has some of the deepest bass and transitions I’ve heard, you can feel the bass and rippling effect of the low frequencies without any bloating or boom, it’s awesome. I really like the app control for quick tweaks to accommodate the material being played. What makes this model so great to me is the size, the price just under $1k and app control. If I was a movie buff I’d go with the ported version, but since I am strictly playing music, I wanted the tightest, quickest response, this sub delivers.

    A positive purchase

    To date I am finding myself very pleased with this new SVS subwoofer! Not having the benefit of a side by side comparison to my tired, old Velodyne subwoofer, I'm enjoying the articulation that I'm hearing from this new sub. It might also be that I'm just that much more consciously listening to the lower end bass response. Given the Velodyne was manufactured in 1997, it's surely possible and likely that the technology has allowed for a greater articulation of the bass responses coming from whatever music or TV/movies are my source material.

    Given the stellar reviews of this sub by audiophile magazines, I have to believe that what I am enjoying hearing is superior to what I've enjoyed in the past.

    Would I recommend this? In a word: yes.

    Great 10" sub with innovative software!

    Setup:

    Setup of the subwoofer was very easy. The box does show simple to follow directions to unpack the subwoofer from the box. It is very important that you follow their directions so as not to damage your new subwoofer. The subwoofer is packed very well. The top and bottom of the sub is packed in Styrofoam. The sub is wrapped in a thin cloth bag that keeps Styrofoam bits from sticking to and helps prevents scratches during unpacking. Personally, I thought the added touch gave a bit of class to the whole process. All the controls and connections on the back of the sub are clearly marked. For my setup, all I needed was power and the LFE cable from my receiver’s sub pre-out to the LFE connection the sub. I set the gain to the middle of the dial, the power control to auto, and toggled the app control switch to app. The sub is light and small making it easy to move into whatever room position I wanted. I chose to place the sub at the front of my room a few feet away from the corner. The user’s guide does cover, in detail, how to find the best room placement for your sub. Unpacking, connections, and placement took about ten minutes.

    App:

    There are two apps that make up the control system for this sub. There is the MarinLogan Sub Control app and then there is the Anthem Room Correction, or ARC, app. The user’s manual does cover these applications in detail. The application allows control over Volume, Low Pass Filter, Phase control, Listening Modes, 20 – 30 Hz boost levels, Room Correction, and the ability to set a pass code so that you can restrict who can modify the sub-woofer settings. I have this subwoofer paired with a Pioneer Elite receiver supports minimal base management. These applications add the base management back into my listening space. First, I’m allowing the receiver to manage the crossover frequency to the subwoofer. I have it set to 80Hz. It is a very common crossover setting. I then loaded the MartinLogan Sub Control app to my iPhone. I spent some time playing with all the settings. I didn’t have to worry about screwing up the sub because there is a reset button that will return everything to factory defaults. So, have fun. Finally, I chose to give the Anthem Room Correction a try. I was prompted to download a separate application from the Apple Store. The directions were simple. The results were magical. I was instructed to hold my iPhone at my primary listening position and then four additional positions around my listening position. What a difference this made to how the sub sounded in my room. It was like night and day. The base was smoother at my listening position and sounded better than with any of the manual settings that I had tried. Bravo MartinLogan! I wish I had this capability for my main home theater system.

    The manual does state that any sub will sound boomy without proper room calibration. So, keep in mind that great bass does take some effort on your part. ARC does make this process much easier.

    Another cool innovative feature that I directly benefited from is the ability to play a range of test tones through the sub. The app will run through a range of tones from 20hz to 120hz. I noticed immediately that my room hit a resonance frequency that sounded like the room was rattling. I was able to pause the frequency sweep and isolate the rattling noise to a frequency of 39hz. With the tone playing, I was able to identify the source of the resonance. It turned out that one of the subwoofer feet was not completely touching my floor. The movement was so slight that to the touch everything felt fine. I move the sub slightly and the resonance stopped. Wow! I would have never found this without the app. Saved me months of trying to track down strange resonances. The MartinLogan apps definitely set the Dynamos apart from all other subwoofers at this price point. What a value!

    Finally, the application does have three sound modes to choose from: Movie, Music, and Night. Movie is an aggressive bass management preset that is great for filling in those power bass notes from our favorite movies. Music is less aggressive and does make a difference when listening to my favorite music. Night is a bit more interesting. It seems to be a combination of aggressive bass management but at a lower volume. I noticed the sub was not very loud but did have great detail at those levels. I found this great because I often listen to my stereo at night when others in the home are in bed. It is also a great feature for those of you who live in apartment buildings and don’t want to upset your neighbors but still want good low-end detail.

    Documentation:

    The included documentation is excellent! I have not seen another speaker manufacture be as clear and descriptive as MartinLogan. I have owned Klipsch, SVS, Bower and Wilkins, and Sony. None of them hold a candle to MartinLogan. The manual is written in multiple languages. The diagrams are clear. The explanations of each feature are also clear and concise. A printed copy is in the box. The PDF copy is available on MartinLogan’s website.

    Music Sound:

    MartinLogan recommends that you break in your sub for about 50 hours before putting any real stress on it. After setup, I left my stereo play the radio for two days before doing any serious listening.

    The sub sounded boomy before running the room correction software. After running ARC, the sound did even out to sound more natural in my listening space. The base is tight and not overwhelming. For music, I do not have the sub setup aggressively. I listened to pop, some rap, electronica, electro swing, and classical music selections. They all sounded great. The sub is capable of outputting good sound pressure, but it is not powerful enough to punch me in the chest. In my opinion, a larger sub would be required to give you that punch to the chest feeling while also maintaining good, tight sound.

    For my purposes, this is one of the best 10” subs I’ve listened too that does a great filling in the low end for my speakers.

    Movie Sound:

    One of the first challenges I put the sub through was the original Pacific Rim. As I mentioned before, the bass from this sub will not punch you in the chest. It did play this movie with excellent detail. Every Jaeger foot step, punch, and Kaiju roar was excellent. The sub was also very detailed and speedy between changes in frequency. I normally watch this movie in my home theater that includes an SVS 2000 PB 12” ported sub. The SVS shakes the entire house! The 600X is not big enough or powerful enough to shake my house. It did still give me an excellence experience when taken in context of the smaller listening space and the inclusion the bass management provided by ARC. The experience does make me wonder how the larger subs in MartinLogan’s range could compete with my SVS sub in a home theater solution. When I’m ready to upgrade, I will definitely give MartinLogan a serious evaluation. The 600X is doing an excellent job as an inexpensive second system solution in my smaller, secondary listening space.

    I did test the sub’s prowess with additional content from Netflix. Again, the bass was accurate for its size, speedy, detailed, and never overwhelmed my speakers. All I needed to do was swipe a few settings in the base control app and more base was instantly available. I will caution you though. This sub only reaches down to 27 Hz. A movie like Pacific Rim will deep down to 20Hz or lower. Even though the movie sound great, there are still details that the sub cannot reproduce. Most music, however, will never reach this low. If you want to go deeper, then you may want to check out the 800X instead.

    Night Sound:

    As I mentioned before, I was impressed with the level of detail available with night mode. I listened to music and watched a few movies on Netflix. The sound levels did not rock my world but it did give me a special respect for this subwoofer. Give it a try.

    Overall Impression:

    I purchased this sub to add a stereo system to a small basement room that is primarily used for office work and music listening. I didn’t want to place a super powerful sub in this space because I don’t have a need for chest punching bass. My goal was sound detail. I feel that I achieved this. The inclusion of the application controls using my iPhone really took this 10” sub to a level that I didn’t think I could achieve with the equipment I have in this space. Boy, was I wrong. MartinLogan is really spoiling it’s customers with this level of control at this price point. They raised the bar for what I will expect for my next home theater subwoofer purchase.

    I hope you found this review helpful. I would recommend this subwoofer to anyone who is looking to setup an inexpensive home theater or stereo system in a smal

    Big and powerful!

    This thing is big and powerful! It is very big and heavy (almost 40 lbs). This makes my previous Yamaha sub woofer seem tiny. Apparently it fires downwards. It has connections for XLR balanced LFE, however if your receiver has only one LFE channel, you're good, it will still work. The woofer gives you the option to use it locally or via an app. It has a standby mode (whenever it detects a signal it will turn on automatically). The lows are amazing, it made my whole apartment rumble (it came with the level set to medium, I had to lower it a tad). The build quality is amazing and you can tune it via its app if you chose to do so (settings like crossover, level etc). You can also use an app to calibrate it according to the space you have it at (like new receivers, that come with a mic to calibrate them, this uses your phones mic).

    Incredible Subwoofer

    I've only had one subwoofer in my life--a small, old one that I've had for at least 10 years--so I jumped at the chance to review a high-end subwoofer. This subwoofer does not disappoint in the slightest.

    First off--this thing is big and gorgeous. The casing on it is beautiful--rich and black. It's very large, but doesn't look out of place at all in a media room (see picture). Even with the size it's very easy to unpack out of the box. The instructions are right on top as soon as you open it, with a clear explanation to remove the cord packed on top, then turn the box over and lift it off of the subwoofer. It's packed very carefully and the box is very sturdy. It would take something very severe to damage one of these.

    The instruction manual is one of the thickest I've ever seen. It's neat that it even comes with one at all, but the detail in this is truly impressive. There are in-depth instructions on hooking up the sub, where to place it in the room, the best settings for what you're listening to, how different speakers and sound systems work together, and even how to use the app (more on the app in a minute). It's also in several different languages.

    Connections are simple or complicated depending on how you want to hook it up. I took the simple route and just used the sub pre-outs on my receiver. You can adjust the volume and db range manually on the back of the sub, or (a much better method) use the app on your phone to control it.

    The sound is fantastic. A truly immersive and rich bass that compliments every thing you'd want to listen to it with. Music and movies sound incredible--particularly action movies, of course. I tested it with Jurassic Park and was really blown away with the T-Rex intro, as well as the stampede scene. You will not be disappointed with the sound.

    The app for this device truly shines. It's a well-thought out app that doesn't take up a lot of room (took 2 seconds to download). The first thing it does when you open it is walk you through finding your sub. Once I turned the switch on the back of the sub to the correct position it found it right away. Next it does a quick firmware update (if necessary)--mine took about three minutes. After that the controls are amazingly simple--or complicated if you want to get really in-depth with every setting. The home screen has a nice, easy to understand db control switch on it that I was very impressed with (see picture). It's intuitive and the sub responds almost instantly. I genuinely wish all apps worked as well as this one does.

    If you're in the market for a new sub and want something truly impressive then this is the one for you. Highly recommended!

    The Force is Strong

    I opened the box in anticipation of testing this sub out with my new copy of The Last Jedi. Once I set it up (truly plug and play), I was off to download the Martin Logan app and tune the sub to my room. The app connects to the sub via Bluetooth and even updates the sub through Bluetooth connectivity. I was asked if I'd like to update the firmware once the app was running and it flawlessly updated the sub in only a few minutes. Easy, easy... love this feature, as no physical connections are needed. Another stellar feature of this line of subs is the ARC (Anthem Room Correction) which basically tunes your sub to your own unique room via an app with your cell phone speaker, or taking it a step further, with a special ARC microphone (available separately) that is specifically designed to give the most accurate result. Since my room is relatively small, I chose to try the cell phone speaker and it performed to my satisfaction. The ARC app is also available to help you with this process. There is also ARC functionality available through the easy to use Martin Logan app. The manual is very straight forward and easy to follow if you need extra help. Now to the sound which is easily the most important aspect. Let's just say I am super happy with the sound and cutoff frequencies that this sub provides. I had to replace another sub which had the same size woofer, only the old one was front facing and this one fires down towards the floor. After using it for a few weeks and many films laster, I can say that I now prefer the floor facing woofer. It's also more protected from little ones and animals which is a big bonus. I have this unit currently paired with JBL 4408A studio monitors and a JBL center channel and I am in high fi heaven. The immersion with my PS3 games is now off the charts. The size is just right for my room and after the easy tuning process, the projection is spot on. Overall, this is an excellent piece of equipment I am proud to own. Thank you, Martin Logan and to Best Buy for carrying such a great product!

    Outstanding Sound, Innovative Software, Quality

    This is a high quality, well-made speaker. It’s the perfect subwoofer for a small to medium size living room. I live in a townhome, and the bass this subwoofer produces is exceptional for my 300 sq. feet living room. This subwoofer is replacing an old 10inch sub that was part of a pre-packaged surround sound system. The old subwoofer produced good base, but nothing like this MartinLogan sub. Both have 10-inch speakers, but the Dynamo 600X can produce lows down to the 27 Hz frequency. At that frequency, you hear and feel the rumbles in movie explosion scenes. And it’s not a harsh or bloated rumble; it’s a smooth and clean sound. The 120 watts RMS output is also the perfect amount for my size living room. It’s powerful enough to produce loud base, but not too powerful to shake all the houses next to me.

    The setup is quite easy. I ran the single subwoofer coaxial cable from A/V receiver to the back of the LFE input on the subwoofer. There are other methods to connect the sub, such as with standard left and right RCA cables, or with speaker cable that are terminated with banana plugs. Either way, you should have this sub up and running in no time. At this point, the base and low frequency sounds are exceptional, but if you want to fine-tune it further, MartinLogan offers a free app that you can download to either your Android or iPhone. The app connects to the subwoofer via Bluetooth. Once connected, you can adjust the sub’s volume, phase, polarity, etc. It’s not necessary to do all this, but the options are there if needed. The most useful feature in the app is the Sweep option. When you activate the Sweep option, the sub will begin producing base at its lowest frequency level (27 Hz) and slowly increase the frequency to it’s highest base level (200 Hz). Not only does it sound cool, among other benefits, it’s also very helpful in allowing you to determine the sub’s best volume level for your room.

    One more point regarding the setup, in addition to the subwoofer’s app, MartinLogin also integrates something called Anthem Room Correction, or ARC for short. Using a separate free app, you can fine tune the sub further by allowing your phone to use its built-in microphones to measure the sub’s soundwaves in relation to your primary seating areas in your living room. Essentially, the ARC app measures the sound using algorithms, and improves the sub’s output based on its location within your room’s unique dimensions. This process sounds complicated, but MartinLogin makes it very easy to use. They also provide these options for free, which is a testament to MartinLogin’s passion for sound, along with their ability to stay up to date with the latest technology.

    I do want to mention a few limitations. However, they were not deal breakers for me. I wish this model had the Energy Transfer Coupler spikes under the rubber feet. The rubber feet do an excellent job keeping the sub stable, but the spikes would have secured it in-place better. Also, this unit’s speaker is only down firing. While this will work for most people, MartinLogin’s higher models allow you to convert the speaker to forward facing if needed (for when it’s sitting behind a cabinet). One more major difference in design between this model and MartinLogan’s higher models, the LFE and Right RCA plug share the same input. Meaning, you can either use the standard RCA (red & white) stereo cables to connect the sub to the receiver, or the single subwoofer coaxial cable, but not both. Again, for most people, including myself, this isn’t a problem. But others may want to keep their stereo inputs separate from their home theater multi-channel LFE input, to allow for even more control of the subwoofer.

    Overall, I’m very satisfied with this model. If you’re looking for a quality subwoofer with the latest technology, the Dynamo X series is the way to go.

    Awesome sub-woofer

    First of all I am no audiophile. I am making this review as someone upgrading from using a passive sub-woofer to an active one. It goes without saying that the sound emitted by this 240-watt sub is much louder than my previous 50-watt sub. That said clarity in this sub is notable compared to the usual muffled bass from sub. From that point of view, there's not much to say about sub-woofers. But one neat feature of this sub-woofer is the app that controls the settings of this sub-woofer. Of course you can reach out of the back to control the settings but using it from your phone is always a plus. There is also an optional wireless control and if you also have compatible speakers you can use a mobile app to fine tune your whole speaker setup.

    Great sub for smaller spaces

    As a disclaimer, I received this MartinLogan 600 x sub as part of the Best Buy Tech Insider Network. My home setup is a Yamaha Aventage 2020 receiver with Infinity mains and center and Definitive Technology surrounds. I guess I'm a little old school with the infinity setup but I have alway been a fan of their products. My current sub was the JBL sw250 which peaks at 700 watts. So on to my thoughts about the Dynamo 600x. This sub is rated at a maximum output of 240 watts with a frequency response of 27 to 200 hz. The room I have set up for gaming and movie watching is 22 feet by 11 feet. In a room this size, this amp has more than enough power, this was a concern of mine going from a 700 watt peak output sub to this one. The bass is tight and strong and makes movie watching an enjoyable experience. (I like strong bass). I am still toying with the free app that MartinLogan has introduced. The app connects to the speaker via bluetooth and allows instant setting changes such as movie, music and night mode, volume adjustment and ARC room correction to get the very best sound possible from this subwoofer. The 600x is impressive in many ways and actually blends well with my current Infinity setup. I have to say that I really like this sub. If I had a larger space, I would definitely want to go bigger, maybe the 1100X for large rooms, but so far I am very pleased. There is also an optional wireless connection that can be added to the sub for rooms where running a cable would be difficult. MartinLogan makes great products and you can add the Dynamo 600X to that ever-growing list.

    It is powerful

    The good, I use it with a .005% distortion stereo 2 channel amplifier for both old and new music types, and I do not need to use much volume for the amplifier. The control adjustments are on the back of Klipsch 15'' subwoofer. If I play oldies, like the Beatles or just basically older type music from the 60's, 70's, 80's I can adjust the bass at midpoint and it sounds great, if the music playing next has a lot of bass, you have to run to the subwoofer to turn it down fast. My neighbor from the Dominican Republic loves it and the bass, but I panic, I am 66, and when the bass on any song with heavy bass comes on and I have it at mid point, I immediately run to turn down the bass to minimum and it sounds great. I think I am basically not used to the power. To me, I have owned one sony 10'' type subwoofer, 150 watt output and usually have it turned up all the way on all songs, but on this subwoofer, the power is really scary and my wife will not let me bring it from the basement, even when I have it turned down to 1/3. So, it is powerful, you can not be disappointed in the power, or clarity. Bottom line, for me, it seems I have to adjust the bass a lot not to disturb my wife or son, who do not like music or the neighbors, because even in the basement, there is no way they are not going to hear it and I live in a large lot country home in Michigan, and the basement is concrete. It is not a finished basement. If I had carpeting and various sound absorbing materials around, I could enjoy it without worrying about the bass. I have it matched up with 2 jbl tower monitors with 2, 8 inch bass speakers each, plus their other components and sometimes, just those speakers are fine without the subwoofer, but the subwoofer really livens up things. If I had to do it again, I might change to two 12'' klipsch subwoofers, instead of one large 15'' subwoofer. Not sure, if I give it up, and switch, I might be downgrading the system, or buy another 15'' klipsch subwoofer, and just keep both at minimum, so I do not have to adjust them anymore. but turning up the bass to just mid level power, actually... when a song comes on with bass, even Celine Dion type song to get my wife to just come and listen once, as soon as the song comes on at mid level bass, it makes my body jump to action to turn it down, it is clear, but powerful. Maybe a lot better in a non concrete room, outside or in an normal living room. By the way, my wife will not come down into the basement, and is fine listening to her music coming from the basement, while she is on the second floor above the basement. My son does not complain on the third level of the house. I have never turned the base up to maximum and never turned the amplifier up to maximum, I am sure I will get scolded. My wife is the boss, I used to be happy single, just kidding.

    Go Big and Go Home

    I question myself spending so much on a subwoofer after never getting anything bigger than a 12" sub my entire life. Initially I was really disappointed with the sound but I re-tuned my system and got the bass I was looking for. I have cement floors so the extra oomph really helps. The bass is really tight and had no problems with distortion at any point in my initial testing with music and movies. Everything sounds very clear. Is it worth it? I don't know. That depends on your needs and what you value. Is it a good product? ABSOLUTELY!

    Best sub for the money hands down

    I knew what i was getting into after all of the research that I had done.. that being said, this Polk sub did not let me down.. i am totally impressed with its bass tone and power for the $130 spent.. i know there are better subs out there, but this Polk sub is the best option for someone not wanting to spend alot but want great bass for all applications.. basically, if you want anything better than this sub, then expect to look at $500+ subs.. its your only option.. for the $130 price point, its an unbelievable sub that hangs with some strong equipment . Its also advisable to determine your space provided.. if you need solid bass for a smaller to upper medium size room, and youre running around 100 to 150 watts on your home receiver unit, this is the perfect sub.. i would only recommend something bigger or better if you have a larger room and/ or runningg 300 plus watt system .

    Superb!

    Had a smaller space to fit a system into, and coupled with the Polk T-15s this sub does the job quite nicely.

    Tucked away under a table and 6" off the floor, the smooth, deep response of the PSW10 fills out the bottom end and allows the T-15s to sparkle with accurate clarity. I set the sub's low pass to it's highest setting to relieve the main speakers of the burden of bass reproduction as much as possible. It's running off an 80W Pyle mini amp.

    Now my kitchen REALLY rocks!

    great subwoofer for the price

    I originally decided to buy this particular subwoofer because my dad bought one a few years ago for his surround sound system and i really liked how good it sounded and it looks pretty cool too.

    I'm currently using a hand me down stereo that is probably about 30 years old (older than me) and it was really struggling to play the low sounds in music and movies, after connecting it and taking just a few min. to adjust, it makes my old stereo sound balanced and new again. it definitely has no problem shaking the house but when adjusted properly it doesn't overpower the rest of the stereo.

    I also plan to wire it in once I upgrade to the new surround sound system that I'm working on building.

    without LFE signal is very good for pricing range

    I bought it for Edifier R1700BTs with SubOutput: recommend.

    If your source doesn't have LFE output then this one is your choice.

    Some people recommend Daytona but this POLK is cheaper and still very good.

    PS. If you get it with discount - then even better. Lol - I missed when price was 124$, but covered with my bank offer for Bestbuy cashback :-) anyway.

    Setup is quite a thing - but I trust my ears not reviews or manual.

    Put both controllers on 75% mostly.

    Don't let the lower power rating fool you!

    Got this to replace a 200w JBL subwoofer that failed following a move. This one is nearly the exact same dimensions, but half the power. The lower power rating has not been an issue, as this subwoofer still provides just the right amount of low-end and depth (even though it's in a larger room than the JBL was at the old house).

    The PSW10 is very simple to hook up and has a very simple frequency response control and a gain control. I set the gain at half and brought the frequency down to around 120Hz, and everything has been great. Not too much bass to wake the baby from a nap, but plenty to enjoy a movie or TV show.

    While I can't compare this one to its apparent replacement (the PSW108), I'm pretty confident that they're similar enough (only differences being frequency response and cabinet color), that I'm happy with what I got-and for less money, too! This unit was less expensive than the PSW108 even when that model was on sale for $50 off.

    If you're not looking to shake the neighbors' houses, but just looking for enough low-end to complement bookshelf or other small speakers, this unit will work well for you (I have four old Bose 211 Direct-Reflecting speakers from 1994/5).

    Big things come in small packages

    This subwoffer is literally one third the size of my old one. And yet it delivers AWESOME bass without any of the vibration that my older one would output at higher volumes. Highly recommend! You will have to look hard to spot it in my pic. It's on the far right.

    Sub Sound

    Everything about it is very good! The ONLY downside is the grill. When I took it out of the box, the pegs were broken from the grill.

    Sony, oh Sony, you rule my ears!

    I purchased this subwoofer with out a doubt that it would perform.

    Since the Sony Walkman, 1998 component receiver, Mege Bass days as a kid I fell completely in love with Sony. They know they type of bass I like to hear. Not too punchy but also very much present. That has not changed today over 20 years later. Here I am thinking I can just use 5 speakers without a sub on my Yamaha receiver. The Sony floor standing speakers definitely performs well without a sub but God oh mighty is it like heaven with this Sony sub! With a room correction mic all my speakers put out the bass they need to and it sends the most beautiful signal to this Sony sub. With bass enhancement on and cross over set to 40 HZ on my Yamaha receiver emphasizes the deep lows at ALL volumes and this Sub takes full advantage of that. It seems to know the expected output of this sub so that clipping is not an issue.

    I can imagine running an old school amp with speaker line in may not be as good. Since you only have the crossover on the subwoofer and whatever frequency the receiver puts out by default on speaker level. Not a deal breaker because I never intend on using this sub that way. You have more control over the sound on a separate subwoofer line out.

    Biggest complaint... It does shut off quite fast (3 minutes maybe) when watching movies with at night with little to no bass. So when bass does come you will miss about 1.5 seconds of the bass before the sub turns back on. You do have the option to turn that off on the sub but I keep it on. Saves on electricity and my sound is very balanced so It does not bother me as much. I can make corrections so that it stays on but I like deep lows to get out of control so I keep the crossover on the sub to the lowest while the gain is at the highest. This thing has me wondering why I ever went to the movie theater to begin with.

    Seriously the best thing I could of bought working from home.

    I didn't catch it when it was 99.99 but at 140.00 I still don't feel robbed! If you got the money, BUY THIS THING!

    BTW Sony, if you had the 7.2 receiver I originally wanted in stores I wouldn't have this Yamaha receiver! lol

    Tremendous value for an awesome subwoofer !!!

    My original single subwoofer was making noises and failing so I went to Best Buy to see what they had. Didn't need or want the $800-$1000 subs for the medium HT room I was redesigning so I bought 1 of these - man, what an immediate clean transparent bass sound. Exactly what you want a sub to do. So awesome I went back and bought a 2nd one and used an RCA splitter out of my single sub out from my AV receiver and have a sweet 7.2 HT setup. Fantastic sound and dialed in the 2 subs to balance bass from the front and rear, even my wife noticed how much better the sound is watching TV and movies or music. Great value for a sub if your looking to upgrade your system.

    Big bass in a small box

    I recently added this subwoofer to my theater sound system. I now have two subs. I bought this because of my previous experience with Definitive. I did not listen to it before I bought. I pulled the trigger quickly because Amazon had it on sale for about 50% off and Best Buy price matches. Normally I would go into a store and listen (feel). Anyway, glad I pulled the trigger. This thumps! It is not as hard hitting as my JBL L8400p, but at 50% of the cost before the extra 50% I got off, I wouldn't expect it to. More "boomy" than the JBL so it compliments the other sub well. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.

    Great Sub...Just not for my application

    This DefTech ProSub 800 is a good subwoofer although it did not fit my application. I wanted an 8" sub that would be used in the LR to fill in the bottom end to my ceiling speakers. This is not a HT room and is mostly used for listening to music while entertaining or working around the house. In order to really get the bottom end, I had to turn up the volume and the sub bounced across my wood floor. Don't get me wrong, this sub is really great musically...it just did not give me what I was looking for.

    Compact but tight low end

    Took some adjusting and settings to get it work well with my other sub but after a few days I really started to love the sub. Does not work well on a hardwood flooring without it sitting on some carpet. The passive bottom firing radiator will make the sub dance all over easily. Especially with scenes in the movie "Interstellar" Its well built and I kinda like the side mounted volume control but I think it would be better if it was top mounted. Its exceptional tighter than my 10" ported sub its paired with when it comes to lower end bass

    Blown away by the performance

    I have an old 7 channel speaker set and the subwoofer just died. The challenge that I had was to find something that fit in the limited space we had as the old one was fairly small. This unit was perfectly sized and reasonably priced so it fit my immediate requirements.

    Once I got it home and connected, I was just blown away. The bass is rich and deep for music and absolutely explosive for movies.

    Our old unit sounded ok but tended to rattle things a bit so it could sound messy at higher volumes.

    This new unit is just smooth and sounds amazing.

    I highly recommend this unit.

    Powerful, accurate bass from a small package

    When I first plugged this sub in to replace my 20 year old Velodyne, I was underwhelmed. However, after a few days of breaking it in, changing the crossover to 60 Hz and turning up the LFE output from my receiver, I am seriously impressed. I’m hearing notes now that I never heard before with my old sub. If I turn the volume up, it can shake my entire living room but at just over half volume, it is tight, accurate and musical. It fits perfectly in the mix with my Audioengine speakers and provides both low end oomph for music and room shaking LFE for movies. I love this thing! Glad I stuck it out and gave it a few days. I’m super impressed and love the new sound I have in my living room home theater.

    Great SW for most systems!

    This is my second Definitive Technology - SuperCube that I've owned and both are great! The newer DEFTECH 2000 7-1/2" 650W Powered Subwoofer sounds great and has a very small footprint....which is a plus. It was very easy to hook up to my system and I've been enjoying if for months with no issue. It's a little punchy, but that can be addressed thru proper setup. Overall it's a very reliable SW.

    Definitive Technology Supercube 2000

    I have a fairly large room 13”x33” I bought the pro cinema 600 on sale about a month ago. The pro sub that comes with that system sounds great and works well with the system. I decided to look into adding another to fill out the bass and bought the supercube 2000 on sale. After hooking it up on its own and setting the bass level to 10 o’clock on the rear dial, this Subwoofer sounds great. It’s very smooth, tight, no matter what you play. I like the sound so much I decided to not use the other pro sub with it. The size is laughable at first look, the fit and finish is nice, though the top of mine had a very small scratch out of the box, but I don’t think it’s worth exchanging over. I highly recommend for anyone looking for good, clean, accurate bass in a compact speaker.

    Amazing sound from such a small cube

    Rich, wholesome sound. It doesn’t miss out on the deep bass with music and movies. The sound fills out the medium to large size living room well. That is something I wouldn’t expect from a small 1ft x 1ft cube like that. Overall, it has a very nice look as well, but both top and base may attract fingerprints easily. Good thing it comes with a cloth protecting the top and bottom that would also be great to wipe off fingerprints.

    First-time Def Tech Sub buyer

    I purchased this Def Tech's SuperCube 2000 to upgrade my previous 10in sub, based only on years of reading excellent praise on the Def Tech brand, but it was always out of my budget range. So when I saw it at half price, I knew I had to take the opportunity. Man, this little monster not only met but surpassed my expectations, it really packs a punch for such a tiny frame! Room and angle positioning are not as significant due to the two side firing radiators. Power is abundant for even large rooms, I've rarely heard it distort with the lowest frequencies in movie soundtracks, granted, I haven't needed to turn its volume higher that halfway up, but all in all, an outstanding value. Minor concern is, although I did acquire BestBuy's service plan, I'm not sure what kind of replacement I'd be offered in case this sub were to malfunction, since I think this model has been outdated for a while. Still, I'm confident it has plenty of wall-rattling years on it for my enjoyment.
