Since I purchased new Tannoy Revolution 8s, I no longer need
a sub.  I have owned maybe half a
dozen subs, but only this one was I able to truly integrate within my

There are several reasons for this, I suspect:  The dual 12” drivers (both active) are
angled into the room, spreading bass through the room more evenly.  (I’m not engineer enough to know if
floorbounce is an issue with bass, but seems to me if towers are more accurate
with 2 6” woofers than a single 12”, for example, then the same logic may well
apply to a sub.)  The internal
1200W amplifier is a Class A/B, not the typical inexpensive digital amp.  And the sub’s control app is extensive
and offers versatile adjustability, even with each song if you like (I ran the
app on my Android phone and then an iPhone).  I also found this is a musical sub, one that goes low and
tight, but without the boominess that was always an issue with other subs (or,
in the case of a 10”, inadequate oomph.) 
If you doubt the low frequency capability of this sub, just use the auto-EQ
(it uses the microphone in your phone to compare sound at the sub and again at
your listening position): the lowest notes will rumble your fillings. 

The app, in addition to its automatic equalization, also
lets you vary the low-pass frequency rounding, adjust phase and delay, and
offers parametric equalizers to further tailor the sub for fitting into your
system and room.  Its many graphics
make even a technical Luddite like me feel comfortable playing with it, and it
has four EQ modes pre-programmed for selection with a single click: the “Night”
setting, for example, was convenient.

I was also smitten with this sub’s ability to fit into a
room: furniture grade wood veneer (the color is called rosewood but it looks
more like a richly-hued walnut—brown rather than red), black-chrome adjustable
feet and cups, and a subtle chrome ring around the drivers make what is usually
an ungainly box downright pleasant looking.

Reviewers seem to complain about the cost of this sub, but
given two active drivers, the Class A/B amp, the beautiful wood veneer finish, balanced
and unbalanced connectors, and the anvil weight and build solidity, not to
mention its exceptional sound, I find complaints difficult to fathom.  Besides, however inadvertently, my selling
this beauty used will take much of the sting away from the next owner.  I purchased this from an authorized
dealer and am the original owner.

Manufacturer Web Site:



It ships with the original manual and white gloves, original black power
cord (not the one in the picture), and black chrome spikes and cups. 
This sub, while reasonably sized, is heavy and the box it ship in is sizable (I have all the original
packaging).  It shipped to me on a
pallet, and I would prefer freight shipping or local pickup.  This sub is less than a year old and
other than some minor spots on the cups for the spiked feet, is in excellent
cosmetic and operating condition. 
I prefer selling to well-rated Audiogoners and buyers who are closer to
my location to minimize handling but will consider other arrangements.
