Let me first start by saying that this is not my first pair of small near-field monitors. I've owned two other pairs of similarly-sized monitors in the past, both of which sounded like cheap junk. These days, I do my listening and mixing on a pair of Yamaha HS8s on two isolating stands in a very dampened (though largely untreated)

First off let me say this. Completely blown away by the sound and physical quality of these monitors. Previous monitors were M-Audio 4.5" monitors and sounded super tinny and didn't deliver the quality these do. I'm probably gonna save these and when I can afford to upgrade to the 5" or 8" versions. hands down happy with my purchase and

UPDATE 11/15/19I'm downgrading these to 3 stars...the sound is amazing while you have music pumping out of them, but nothing is playing, the hiss is just driving me nuts. IT's not a cable thing, it's not connections...the tweeter hiss just by being on. So at times where I don't want music, I have to turn them off altogether.Sound wise

This is something that has always eluded me. The amount of bass this outputs is absolutely ridiculous. I have never owned a sub that wasn't part of a sound system bundle, so the idea of a mid-range priced sub was something I never really thought about. I thought it was sufficient enough with studio monitors, but from what I've

Before I bought it I wasn't too sure how big a difference it would make, or if I should have gone for the 12". However, after receiving this sub and pairing it to two KRK Rokit 8's, I'm blown away and very happy with the choice I made.Seeing as the 10" is basically half the price of the 12", This is absolutely the correct sub to go with

So I love this. However, here's one thing that drives me absolutely crazy. The auto power off. It's not that I disagree that they turn off after a period of time, that's great. What's horrible is you cannot adjust the threshold/line level that triggers the power. You really have to have it kinda loud before it even considers turning

So a lot of you producers and non-commercial users are saying this is not punchy enough, or does not have enough kick to it, well all I gotta say is you're doing it wrong. I thought the exact same thing while testing it till a friend and I figured out what we were doing wrong. I am sure some of you figured it out, as its kinda trial and

As some other reviewers have mentioned, you need to correctly tune this sub to your system/surroundings. I was ready to throw this thing out the window after initially setting it up. I actually thought it might have been damaged in shipping. Have some patience. Adjust the settings, move it around. Within 1 hour I had this thing

This was a great speaker when it workEd. The one we bought has a problem turning on. It was a Christmas present for my son and the first time it happened was mid-January when he went back to school after Christmas break. It immediately started working again and he mentioned it on the phone. It was still within the 30 day window and I

I had a couple reasons for buying this subwoofer. I love listening to house music and I was missing out on a lot of the low end, I've gotten into audio mixing recently and having a subwoofer helps to hear everything, and I already had the Yamaha HS5's and this paired perfectly with them. For casual listening, this simply sounds amazing.

I actually have two of these subs paired with two HS80M studio monitors. One sub alone outputs decent bass, but I feel the sub is not on par in terms of quality with the HS80M studio monitors. Obviously the sub outputs more bass than the monitors, I am just talking about in terms of bang for the buck, I feel that the monitors are a

Bought on a Saturday and I received my speakers on Wednesday. Straight out of the box, it sounds amazing.

As a DJ with a LOT of equipment (reviews for many of that stuff in my profile), I'm that "you can never have too much equipment" guy. ONE thing that I was sorely missing, though, was a decent pair of studio monitors to do my practicing with. My "lab" has subs and PA tops, but these are too loud to practice on and when

This is the worst piece of equipment I've ever owned right out of the box. I have a small home studio and wanted a cheap studio subwoofer to monitor the low end. Cheap doesn't even begin to describe this junk. I read all the bad reviews and could tell that some people just blew the speaker from blasting the bass too loud. I keep it at a

I'm a producer and mix engineer. I currently own 2 Adams A7x monitors running through a Focusrite Clarett. They sound amazing, but I wanted to hear the true lows.. especially when mastering or even relaxing. I heard about this sub from a fellow professional, so I purchased one. I had initial doubts since my monitors are $750 a piece.I

I've had this sub for a few days, and it's absolutely superb for the price. It can get very loud and push a lot air. I've set the volume to almost its lowest level and it still shakes my entire house. The circuitry is quiet -- it has not added any kind of noise to my setup. The LPF knob functions as your crossover circuit. It is a

This is the best reference subwoofer in its price range. It outperforms offerings from Klipsch, Rock Audio, Dayton Audio, Polk, BIC, and Yamaha. I am extremely happy with the sub. It punches hard, drives deep, and plays clean. It will fill your room with little effort.Pros:- It gets low. Really low. I'm hearing 34Hz consistently.- It

UPDATED REVIEW (03/03/19): I was sent a replacement pair directly from Samson. Their service was fast and replacement came a day ahead schedule (awesome!).

Let's get the obvious out of the way - these speakers are purpose-specific. They're not your average desktop music boxes, they're flat and unforgiving and transparent. And those are all good things - music and video producers don't want their studio monitoring equipment to be mindless yes-men, they want the truth of what they're

I got both the M50 "monitors" and the subwoofer. The speakers suffered from a defective passive monitor, with muffled sounds and low volume. It would rarely work better than that. So that had to be returned for a refund.The subwoofer I don't think is defective, it's just not good. The bass is very loose and flabby, the boomy type that

I preferred a front facing woofer and was a little disappointed that it was floor firing. However the amount of accurate bass this thing kicks out at all volume levels is amazing! I have it paired with 2 Adam Audio A8X Monitors connected to my Focusrite Scarlett 18i8. Definitely worth the price. The crossover on both monitors and sub in

I have a Clark and a Buttkicker. Clark is rated for 250 watts, Buttkicker is over 1000 watts. Buttkicker was twice the price, so I bought the less expensive Clark first.The application was the long roof of a bare metal limousine: It has the perfect resonant surface area for 0.0001 Hz through 150 Hz.

These are great for mixing on. They offer a very flat, unbiased sound response with excellent clarity. Perfect for doing sound design/engineering work on, which is how I use them. They provide a little less bass than an 8" monitor or a studio subwoofer will, but the have plenty of bass for working on audio for video or even music

I had to downgrade from larger Yamaha mixing speakers in order to make the weight capacity of a new sit/stand desk this year.

This is the cutest subwoofer ever. OK, is it indeed a subwoofer? Yes and no. It's certainly a woofer at least. The 40 Hz spec seems accurate but a true SUBwoofer should at least go down to 25-30 Hz. But I'm happy to find this little gem. I use it with a 32" TV in the kitchen. It fills in everything below the TV's ability and has a nice

I like to start with identifying product flaws or shortfalls, and there is only one reason for the drop to 4 stars... there is no speaker grill to protect the driver. Though this provides a pleasing aesthetic view of the carbon-fiber(?) driver, it requires a degree of caution if you have it place near your feet at a computer desk)Now,

I ran a test tone at 40hz and there was barely any output so the spec of 40hz is a huge exaggeration.I ran a test tone at 50hz and there was good output.The bass quality at 50hz and above is good so I would recommend this sub if you have little speakers like the Audioengine A2.However, normal sized bookshelf speakers will play about as

AMAZING SUB!if you are on the fence about this sub. Just get it. I used to own an EV SBA760 sub. That thing was amazing, but too heavy and bulky to bring to gigs anymore, so I wanted to downsize and bought a Behringer B1200D-PRO which sadly did not meet my expectations. This EV sub is amazing.

I am a fan of Electro-Voice since many years ago, even though before making the investment I searched a little bit in the sub woofer market to figure it out about prices, technology, etc..

A pretty well known issue with these is that if you turn them up to where you get meaningful interaction in Sim Racing they overheat and the internal protection kicks in after about 15 minutes.
