Love at first Bass
18.12.2015
I tested this two subs few days ago it did a super great job in a combination with satellite speakers(2x Ev-Zlx15p) People were dancing all night long, no sub-bass error or failure so ever . It was a bit hot at amplifier area, but no danger in overheating.
To protect yourself I advise you to run it via speaker management system, for total cross-over and limitation control against potential misunderstanding of mixer's master output signal that could damage your entire system.
Otherwise Frequency cutoff works very well this sub is playing very very loud and comes with a built-in limiter.
As a good Sub its heavy and it should be!
Its well built ... but don't hesitate in buying 4 wheels for transport your back will be very thankful, this sub will expand your bass-based-music delivery for all thirsty dancers out there. Totally recommend!

I bought this for a small scale theatre tour which i wanted a lot of sub frequency sound going on in the show. We were using one for an audience size of about 100 maximum. Worked really well and gave me the weight of bass i wanted. Did manage to max it out in parts of the show but I was doing some pretty loud sub effects. Used in a more realistic setting, It could easily manage a bigger room.

The sound is good. It's not perfect. It isn't very level in it's frequency response (in the range it can manage), but this was probably more noticeable to me at the level i was using it and it was easily tuneable through software.

It is heavy! and i don't necessarily mean that in negative way. It makes it really sturdy which helps with the sound quality. But considering I bought this to tour, I do feel a little sorry for the people who have to move it in and out of a van every few days (although that's not me, so I don't feel that sorry).

Cheap big bass box
licht, 27.11.2019
Don't buy this for home use if you have neighbors :D I did, couldn't turn it up more than 5% otherwise the whole house was resonating. Obviously, this is not a small speaker.

Recently I was finally able to push it to it's limits at a party, however after 7 hours of active use on nearly max (it was not limiting), it suddenly started to emit a weird noise, even when the voice cable was unplugged.

Turns out, there is a sponge like glue thingy fixing one of the components on the circuit board to prevent moving from the bass. This material melted, and made a short circuit.

Replacing that with a silicon based glue fixed the problem. I think this is a design flaw, because the material used initially on the circuit board can become conductive over time, probably due to the heat.

Great sound, power and quality
Luke D, 02.03.2020
Only one negative thing I can say - it is heavy but it has to bee due to its built. It is an amazing and powerful speaker! Never let me down and handled well all parties up to 250 people in big rooms used as one sub and 2 satellites with The Box DSP 115.
