"Just enough Bass for any event"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just purchase this sub to enhance my EV ZXL 15p's. A big thank you to ZZounds for a quick delivery. They arrived the morning of a huge graduation party I had to do and they sounded great. I did a sound check before the guest arrive just to hear the base and it was superb. Also it kept my tops very cool by adding a sub. Not once did I clip and I rocked a full 6hr gig.
Sound is delivering a great deep bass punch adding that bass where it's needed at.
Ease of Use
So easy to use, plug your xlr's in and play. Simple to use
What I liked the most was the rubber feet on the bottom of the sub, it stayed where it needed to be. It gripped the floor very nicely.
Very welled priced, affordable for a mobile dj
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had the need to call them. Which is a good thing.
The Wow Factor
Very light weight. It fit well in the back of my cab of my truck. For the size of this small speaker, it delivers beyond expectations
