Pros: Bass, size
Cons: ozone smell?
I will say right up front that bass/$ this sub produces exceeds to an amazing degree what I though possible at this, or even much higher price range. I was expecting a nice bass that would distort and level off at modest loudness, but that not what this sub offers. Instead, subjectively, it far exceeds my expectations and offers reasonably tight sound, plenty loud, and definitely goes low into what the the LFE Blu-Ray channel offers. At 20lb / 50W FTC of power (100w dyn.), how this Pioneer unit, with phase and frequency control, plus auto power on/off, hi/lo level inputs can be so inexpensive is a mystery, but a welcome one. You really simply can't go wrong with this unit when used in a small to moderate sized room setup. I almost laugh out loud when I say that the two subwoofers compare favorably to each other when used in their respective areas.
The only weird thing is after producing some thunderous bass at some point in a movie, you can smell a bit of ozone I guess from the power supply doing it darn best to keep up with the signal. As soon as things calm down it goes away, and I guess it's the bass port that's puffing out the smell as it points to the front right where I'm sitting. I was a bit worried at 1st but no harm seems to come from this
