Default Samson mini active xover for subs

I was looking at prices for a Behringer CX2310 or CX3400 in the UK for my diy sub when I came across a Samson "mini S" Xover. It's the same price or even a bit more than the CX2310 but is much smaller and simpler.

The manual and spec sheet are extremely sparse for this model (even though Samson's other manuals seem to be very comprehensive) so I had to ring Samson to find more info e.g. it has a 12 dB slope.

I was wondering if anyone knows if this model is any good? I've not heard of Samson but their prices seem to be slighlty higher than Behringer across the board so maybe they're a simialr standard.

I just like the look of it because it's so small. Also I'm thinking on the lines that less circuitry might not necesaarily be a bad thing.

This probably isn't helpful, but if you can, save up for Behringer DCX2496. It's amazingly good for the money, and the parametric eq is invaluable.

A digital programmable crossover with parametric EQs, delays and phase shifters is a must-have for anybody building speakers. The DCX2496 performs these functions for very little money.
