Bottom Line:   
This is a superb little sub with a far bigger sound than it's size would imply. It also has some useful features lacking from a lot of more expensive units: a choice of high or low level connectors, and high level out with a high pass filter (set to 100Hz if memory serves). In fact i notice that some of these features have been removed from the new "HD" models. The sound from the R360 is extremely tight and tuneful, and it integrates superbly with the R90 satallites, (as one would expect really), although i'm sure it will complement other small speakers just as well with a little tweaking. All in all i would say this is an excellent quality sub for music - it can kick out a really quite big bass sound without any of the boominess which so often goes with smaller subs at anything beyond moderate volumes, remaining balanced and punchy. What i don't know, or personally really care about, is whether it goes low enough for the demands of modern home cinema requirements. I suspect it doesn't, and that the home cinema buff might want to look for something a bit beefier.

I would have to say though, that for an inexpensive 2.1 system for music listening in a smallish room, i really couldn't fault the Radius 360 for musicality, looks, craftsmanship or features. All round a great purchase - i got mine new for £170 (GBP) or about $250 US.

Bottom Line:   
I oiriginally bought the Radius 360 as part of a Radius 90 5.1 set-up, but ultimately ended up returning it and getting the larger Radius 720 sub.

The 360 is attractive because of it's small size and beatiful finish, but really doesn't qualify as a true subwoofer. It is a powerful and tuneful little guy (within its range), but it has very limited output below 40 Hz (even though the specs say it can reach 27 Hz). Because of the limited low end, I would say that it is best for a music only system. It just doesn't have the low end weight to do justice to action movies.

If you want the best of both worlds though, and you have the expendable cash, go for the Radius 720 sub. It is just as articulate as the smaller 360, but it extends all the way down to a solid 25 Hz (real world). It is also capable of more output, making it a good fit for a medium sized room.
