EQ-Max 10 Inch Subwoofer
- Product Review (submitted on September 14, 2012):
This is a very strong sub that can handle a ton of bass and not get distorted. Hookup is easy, especially if you have a pre-sub out jack on the back of your receiver. It's very close to plug and play in its ease of setup.
The sub comes with a microphone on a 30' chord that you plug into the sub and then put the receiving end of the mic where you would sit in the room. The sub then cycles out 12 tone frequencies and 'learns' from how the bass is projected in the room. It then sets the volume and phase based on this information. Takes a lot of the guesswork out of trying to calibrate it myself. I used this function and haven't changed the settings since, as the sub sounds great from this calibration.
Bass is rich and powerful. It comes with a small remote that easily lets you adjust the volume of the bass, which is nice when switching from music to movies.
Overall I'm very satisfied with this product. It adds a whole other level of sound to an in-home movie experience. I've heard other 10" subs that crack under the pressure of a movie with lots of explosions, but this sub handles it with ease.
I did give it 4/5 stars because the documentation that comes in the package is very weak. I had to log onto their website to find the online documentation, which was not as easy to find as it should have been. Once I found the documentation, the rest of the setup was a breeze.
