Strength:

When broken in and setup properly (including gain/ volume- see comments in Weaknesses), this compact sub really filled in the ranges on my Eosone RSF 400 and B&W 602 S3. I use the recommended hi-frequency input with a Neutrik Speakon cable and crossovers were set just above the speakers' -3dB bottom end. Rest of equipment included NAD C350 amp (going to try Roksan Caspian next), Yamaha CDR-HT1000 source, and Straightwire Chorus interconnects. The bass is lively and tight then and makes the other speakers more revealing in high bass and midrange. Quite a value/ steal for the pittance i paid in a garage sale (price includes a new Neutrik cable and AC cord).

Weakness:

Not going to be as powerful as best 12” or larger sub. Then, there’s the notorious rattle . For me it was heard at every volume, so I did the free air woofer test... It was still there so it wasn’t the enclosure. Moving the cone by hand even a little elicited a metallic rattle so it was the voice coil on the OEM REL AX10 woofer. This was replaced and then it sounded heavenly.
