It's got an amp, and some interesting controls. I wouldn't say you've been robbed, but your money may well ave been better spent.

I've always been curious about those little, low and rumbly subs - what sort of driver do they use?

its Not a Bad Sub,its a good Value to me...the Bass Peaks somewhere around 40 and isnt Signifigant Below 33...it sounds good.


The Driver is a 6.5" Paper Cone with a Rubber Surround,Flat Dustcap,its Bigger than it looks in the Photos and Quite Heavy.

The Enclosure is Ported...which sony Refers to as "Acoustically Loaded"

the Port Moves alot of Air around 40 Hz,Below the Tuning Frequency the Woofer Unloads abit below 33 Hz.

turns out the Sub is Not Properly Tuned as are most Commercial Subs,if the Port was Designed a little Better the sub would have a Higher Value(Retail)..its still not a bad sub though.

i should have reworded that to make it Clearer...what i ment to say is the sub isnt Properly Tuned in a Sense...its tuned in the 40's and comparing it to a larger sub i thought it should have been tuned a little lower....the main problem is the Port....its simply too big and i dont believe its Flared so it makes terrible wind noises when pushed Very Hard.

The Sub Meets my Needs though.

i was just thinking how much better this sub,and most other commercial subs would sound if the manufacturer Took more time to Optimize the Sound rather than just throwing a Random Driver in a Random Box.
