Ideal for use in a larger scale venue, this 12" subwoofer provides high SPL level and low frequency levels.
So, I didn't have exceptionally high expectations when I purchased this subwoofer. After all, I was only paying $52 + shipping. However, I have to say that this could barely keep up with the low frequency response of my Yamaha Club IV series 15" speakers. Those speakers are only rated for 55Hz and up, while these are listed as 25Hz-800Hz. At *best*, I would say that the 25Hz low end cutoff is the -10dB cutoff, and definitely not the -3dB cutoff. Also, even using a good amp (Crown XLS 1500), these had to be turned up more than the Yamaha's to get even equal volume as the Yamahas at the same frequencies.
I don't know why I thought I could defy physics and get better bass response out of a woofer that is 3" smaller in diameter, and from a much cheaper level cabinet.
To be fair, if you're looking for a cheap solution for house parties or you need more bass to complement 8" or 10" speakers, this would probably add value to your system. But, it won't add much to a pair of 15" good-quality speakers.
Also, I have to say that MCM's shipping is very fast.
I purchased two of these speakers along with several others of the speakers in this line. As for quality of sound they are actually better than the price would reflect. My biggest disappointment with these speakers is the quality of the components that are part of the cabinets. The plastic feet break off easily when moving them and the "pole mount" adapter is flimsy plastic that is too weak to actually support even the 10' speakers in the same line. I was able to find some rubber feet and replaced all of the feet on every speaker I bought and will eventually replace the pole mount adapters so that I can use them too. Basically, you get what you pay for. Even with the improvements necessary these are pretty good speakers for the price.
