Our Verdict

All around, this is a solid performing subwoofer with a sturdy build.

For

  • The build of this subwoofer is sturdy. When the bass thumps, your subwoofer won’t rattle.

Against

  • The class-A amplifier delivers a clean signal but is inefficient, dumping wattage into heat, which can make this amplifier hot.
