" ...  This 8” Sub puts out plenty of Bass for my now completed Office 5.1 System where I often watch TV or stream Netflix or Amazon Prime. ... It's compact size works well in this room and the Bass output is tight and a welcome change from the Bose Bass unit I had employed which is now at a charity thrift store. ... At this price, the quality and strong Bass is more than I expected.  ...  "
