Hi. I would like some opinions on this sub. I am going to meet up with this guy selling it on FB locally. He said it was purchased form CV. He states it is an awesome sub and that the bass is unreal. He is selling it to me for $70. I will be hooking it up to my Onkyo 7.2 surround tomorrow and put on a few movies and songs to see how it holds up. I am pretty sure it was manufactured in 2005? Those of you who are familiar with this sub what do yall think? should i go for it?

I currently have two onkyo subs firing from my living room Onkyo AV. It is currently on a crossover of 80. I have been told to put it on 100 crossover. any ideas on this crossover setting? I have two polk audio tower speakers and polk audio center and surrounds plus surround backs.

any input would be greatly appreciated. thx in advance. i included some pics of the sub.

this is the link i found to the sub.

I was going to say "welcome to the forum", but I can see even though you made your first post tonight, you have been a member for two years.


Oh, heck! Welcome, anyway! :biggrin:


:welcome:


But, please, just one thread per topic. I have deleted the duplicate thread.


And please add a "real name" in your profile. It is required in our rules (and I don't know what to call you). Thanks,


Mike

Yes testing it this evening.

My floor speakers are tsi400's polk audio. I have them setup to where all the bass comes from subs. I got 2 polk audio psw10's. I have them at 80. Advice?

Thx

Test the sub to see if it comes on. Inspect the foam surround, enclosure ect to see what kind of condition it's in. If it fires up and you think it sounds good $70 isn't a bad price.


Are you asking about advice and which subs to keep,and/or xover settings? I'm not quite sure.

Actually that setup is my man cave lololol. The 7 speakers are Polk audio. I have another two surround sound setups.

one in the living room which runs on 2 polk audio floor speakers and center channel, 4 sony surrounds and two onkyo subs....all running on an onkyo AV.

I have the 3rd one (PPV setup) in the garage. that is a sony AV with two onkyo L and R, Sony C, 2 onkyo surrounds and i just bought it a sony 100w sub.

I am thinking (if it sounds good) of putting the cerwin vega either in the garage or living room.

It it was in good shape, worked properly and impressed you for $60 then I say you scored on that one. Congrats on your new addition.

Not sure anyone answered your question about crossover settings. The THX standard is 80, higher than that, the sub becomes localizable. Your speakers need to be able to reproduce at least to 80hz without being down more than 3 db. A crossover lower than 80 is fine, but I wouldn't go higher and would upgrade my front speakers if they couldn't do 80hz without being down more than 3 db. Best of luck!
