I have for sale a used Orb Audio Super Eight sub-woofer that I'm looking to sell. In immaculate condition, looks brand new, comes with original box.

Info from Orb Audio

High Performance, compact size. The Super Eight is a compact, powerful subwoofer that is designed to achieve and surpass the performance of many larger, more expensive subwoofers. With a cabinet that is 12" x 12" x 12", and with a stylish fabric grill, the Super Eight is the perfect antidote to obese, generic black box subwoofers.

State of the art features. At the heart of the Super Eight you will find a strong amplifer and a high-tech custom driver that work together to get maximum bass performance from a small, attractive subwoofer. The Super Eight features a 200 watt hybrid BASH amplifier that can peak at over 400 watts. By spending more on important components, Orb Audio can deliver a subwoofer capable of producing thunderous bass while still retaining the tightness and accuracy often lost in other designs. The Super Eight is loaded with features, such as:

Phase Switch (0/180)
Adjustable Crossover (40-160hz)
Temperature protect circuitry
Auto/On/Off Power
Gold-plated RCA line level input
High level gold-plated inputs and outputs
12dB/Octave hi-pass circuit

Great for both music and movies. If you are looking for a subwoofer that can shine while playing both music and movie soundtracks, the Super Eight is for you.

Fantastic value. The Super Eight would be $749 if it were sold in traditional retail stores, but is available for $399 directly from Orb Audio and is included in all of our stereo and home theater speaker packages without all of those extra charges and markups.

Design. The Super Eight powered subwoofer follows the same design principles as our Mod1 and Mod2 satellites. We use advanced audio design and high quality components to produce the most accurate, rich sound from a small, attractive enclosure.

Small subwoofer, big sound. There are two ways to make a subwoofer produce bass. The first is to use a large enclosure and a less expensive driver and amplifier. This is the option taken by many of the mass market companies who need to keep costs down because of the hefty markups of their products on the way to the retail shelf. The second option is to use a smaller enclosure, a better amplifier and a higher quality driver. Obviously, since Orb Audio designs and manufactures high quality, small satellites, we chose the second path when we designed the Super Eight. We started with a sturdy, heavy duty cabinet, but limited it's size to about one foot square so that it would not eat up all the space you saved by choosing Mod1 or Mod2 satellites. Then, we added a fantastic amplifier and a custom driver, which together can move a lot of air and produce deep, tight realistic bass.

More about design. The Super Eight has an advanced BASH hybrid amplifier, capable of producing 200 watts of continuous power and can peak, conservatively, at well over 400 watts. Add to this a high-tech driver with a heavy 30 ounce magnet, gold-plated inputs and binding posts, a high-quality crossover and Orb Audio stylish design. Although the Super Eight is acoustically matched to our Mod1 and Mod2 satellites, it is a good match to most other speaker system that would normally require a larger subwoofer. The cabinet on the Super Eight measures 12" x 12" x 12" and will fit in with any decor and in any space available in your room. It is one of the only compact subwoofers that can really outperform larger subwoofers that use enormous, space-wasting cabinets.
