Just got mine and I have to admit that I was a little afraid, but I have had my rp8's for a couple years so I thought that I would give it a chance, I set this thing on 0db and let er rip! I couldnt be happier, for the money I think this is one of the better subs on the market. I guess anyone can have a flawed product, but my KRK's have been rock solid and I cant speak highly enough of them. Hope this helps
The first one I got was dead on arrival. After waiting a replacement, I finally got it. The second one worked great for about 6 months, and then it started emiting this ungodly LOUD hum out it's 10 and the two 6" monitors I had hooked up to it. The 6" monitors I got from KRK seem great, but I've had two of these subs go bad, and I'm mad. Trash.
I bought this sub because I thought it sounded like a great value for the price. I plugged it in and loved the booming sound it had. Ya well, I didn't notice it was made in freakin CHINA. It quit working only after a few uses. My suggestion is buy something with a more reputable name if you want it to last. Now I'm dealing with the warranty on it to see if they will do this easily or NOT... I'll write another review at that time.Don't buy it.
To those having problems with this sub. Try setting the frequency to 80hz or lower and don't crank the dand thang all the way up I keep mine at 0db and it's almost too loud. The sub is meant to fill up your mix not destroy it. Also take a look at your source material. Perhaps you're working with way too much low midrange try eqing some out. This sub is quite fantastic. I wouldn't consider mixing modern music without one ever again.
what I don't understand is that it clips at VERY low levels. The bass is very boomy, has very little definition and changing the lowpass frequency does not help it much, other than just making the sub clip easier. Staying at around 60Hz isn't going to help the sound if all you get is boomy sub noise. Price is definitely a factor here, so I did not expect this to perform like it's the best sounding sub out there, but this is one step where it is not smart to cut corners. If you spent money on your monitors, then pair them with a nice sub. I'll try M-Audio for now, and when I'm ready-upgrade to what I know would work-Dynaudio.
This little guy puts it out. I have the Rockit 8's and needed some low end and bought this. BLAM! Enough low end to rattle my whole house while keeping the bass tight and clean. I have done a little bit of research, and this seems like the best bang for buck sub. Give it a go.
I have been recording lately at a local studio that uses the RP-10s, and it is simply amazing how much depth it adds to the music. And it's not that nasty, flabby, muddy bass around 125-150 Hz either, it's gut punching bass that you both hear AND especially feel. For this amazing price, this is an amazing piece of gear to add to a studio arsenal. It's definately on my list!
If you need deep bass in your mix this little sucker is for you. I record Funk, jazz & Hip Hop music I also own the Rocket 8's and they are great but lacked the booty bottom end. I added a Rocket 10 and the difference is WoW Dude! I use it at a low volume just to fill the room and the bass tone is incredible. If you are looking for awesome low end this is your SUB.
