Bottom Line:   
This is a great sounding Subwoofer. However, when it goes wrong don't expect help from Sunfire. They like to make easy sales without back-up service.

THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE UPDATED SUNFIRE SUPER JUNIOR...


EXTREMELY FAST AND ACCURATE BASS. VERY POWERFUL WHEN NEEDED, CAN PLAY EXTREMELY LOAD. LISTEN TO MAHLER AND WATCH FOR THAT BASS, WOW MADE ME LITERALLY JUMP OUT OF MY SEAT. CLASSICAL MUSIC REALLY DOES MAKE A SUB WORK. DO PLAY WITH DIFFERENT LOCATIONS BECAUSE IT PAYS BIG DIVIDENDS IN THE END. MORE WORK TO SET UP BUT WELL WORTH IT. I GOT MINE FOR A STEAL FROM EXTRPC IN N.Y FOR $799.00 PLUS SHIPPING. CALL THEM AT 516-359-6823 AND ASK FOR CHRIS.

This is the best subwoofer you can get. This is simply because of the size to power ratio. Bob Carver is a good when it comes to subwoofer technology, and it shows through the Jr. With such good frequence response and POWER, this sub has made me happy since the day I bought it. I highly recommend this sub to any person looking to buy a powered sub with a decent budget and size in mind.

Well, first of all I have to say that Bob Carver is the ultimate man when it comes to stereo home theatre equiptment. I've seen other reviews complaining about a humming noise, loud boomingness, subwoofer doesn't shut off, etc...etc... These guys are idiots! Depending on your reciever and your surround sound speakers, YOU HAVE TO BLEND THE SUBWOOFER NOISE TO GET AN ACCURATE SOUND!! All of the complaints above are people who simply turn up the 1200 watts when their speakers handle much lower wattage. Blending is the most important thing about having a true home theatre sound. The crossover FREQ. is awsome on this subwoofer. You can blend this very nicely with any speaker. You can fill up the room with a very low bass level control and most of all it will sound beautiful. That is the mistake that people make. At 9" X 9" this is one powerful thing. It will rattle the house, it will move a condo off it's foundation and most definitely will collaps an apartment building!!!! Shop around, especially on ebay and you can find a sweet deal under $600 You will not be disapointed. PRAISE CARVER & SUNFIRE!!!!! KICKIN ASS!!!!!

Truly a great little gem!!!

Very fast, responsive and tight.

My original intend is for a two channel stereo since my ATC SCM20T, although packed with tight quality bass, can only goes downn to 50hz.

After much tuning, the Junior now blends well with the ATC, adding the much needed subsonic info which was lacking. Now the bass is both tight and packed with punch with no signs of boominess!!!

A word of advice, this baby seriously require some spikes, or it will jump around the place. The spikes also tightens up the bass and give it more shape!!!

Now after the addition of the Junior, watching "Black Hawk Down" and "Saving Private Ryan" is truly an earth-shaking experience!!!

P.S. I think the Velodyne is more musical but lacking in ooomph when watching movies. So after weighing between the Junior and the Velodyne, i opted for the Junior which i think it's an all round WINNER!!!
