Bottom Line:   
I was after a sub on a budget, and this little unit met all my criteria of not being too big, looking stylish and sounding good.

Its a 60 watt active sub, it can either be wired up to a subwoofer pre out, or if your amp doesnt have one you can pass the wires for your front speakers from the amp to the sub then onto the speakers.

I have been spoiled by a pair of mordaunt short 906 speakers that are very good at producing bass, but i do know when my little sub kick in because there is a good rumble in the floor that wasnt their before.

At the back it is simply laid out. a line in for the pre out, a volume dial, a crossover dial,speaker in/outs and a phase switch. The manual instad of scaring you off just says play with them untill it sounds right to you, which i like.

By no means is this the biggest and baddest on the block, it lacks the response and power of the big boys but what do you expect for £100 and 60 watts.
It is a good performer, it does provide that grumbly oomph you need, its happy to work with both pro logic and DD/DTS setups with little fuss. It automatically switches off when there is no bass signal present so wont eat your electricity
