    "When I was moving the previous sub-woofer that I had broke during the move, so I replace it with this. The ELAC S12EQ has done what my previous one has done and even better than before."

    "Music and film mean the world to me, so I have to say, these speakers are top of the line. They are quite pricey, but probably some of the best speakers that can be purchase in this price range (5-10k). If you can afford these, get them. If you can't, maybe start saving so you one day can if music and film are as important parts of your life as mine."

    #3Klipsch Synergy Sub-12

    Klipsch Synergy Sub-12

    The Klipsch Synergy Sub-12 subwoofer gets its intensity from a 12-inch, down-firing driver coupled to a highly efficient BASH amplifier that creates 300 watts of continuous power and 650 watts of dynamic power. The subwoofer's built-in, steep-slope (24dB/octave) low-pass crossover is continuously adjustable from 40 to 120Hz. A phase control facilitates the acoustical integration of the subwoofer with the other speakers in the system. An "auto power" feature enables the subwoofer to turn itself on and off (standby) automatically, based on the presence or absence of an audio signal.

    "These speakers really do sound quite good. I also love the auto power feature, since I try to save energy and electricity when I can and am often forgetful to turn things off. Since, I haven't owned many speakers though I can't really attest to how good these are or how well they stack against other speakers. I guess I would have liked to have seen more of a comparison to other products in the solution."

    "These speakers will do and offer a punch for the price they're set at, but they aren't the greatest. I would mark them at above average at best, and think that better solutions and advice could be given when it comes to home speakers. I'm satisfied with my purchase, but I could be happier about it."

    "I am such a bass head and these speakers are great for movies as well as music. The bass on them really is astounding. I think these are definitely some of the best speakers that you can get out there, and am happy with my purchase. Glad I stumbled upon this solution. Unfortunately, they will be out of most people's price range..."

    "For a smaller subwoofer, this produces pretty powerful sound. After spending time working with the sound settings, I couldn't be happier. The low-end is very smooth and does not overpower the mids or highs."

    "Now, when you see the price tag on this of $3,353 your mouth may drop and you might say "Oh hell no!" But, you have to consider what the subwoofer gets you in return - an amazing and long lasting experience. Accurate, powerful, and pivotal sounds with perfect pitch and frequency. What's not to love? If you're going to invest in something like this, go for quality. I was satisfied and so will you be too!"

    "While the Samsung HT-H7730 home theater system does include a subwoofer, this is not a purchase for a standalone subwoofer. If you're looking for a home theater system that includes a subwoofer, you may want to consider this, even though it has confusing bugs with the UI. If you're looking for a standalone woofer, you should consider something else."

    "Sony HD Digital Cinematic Sound 770 Watts 7.1 Channel 3D A/V Receiver + Yamaha Natural Sound Custom Install In-Ceiling 2-Way 150 watts Speaker is a full sound stereo system that is available from Amazon for $799.95. It has nice power but not really as much as you might expect for the price tag. The sound quality is very much what you would expect and maybe more. It is as beautiful as it is great sounding. It fits the topic very well."
