"Grill was hanging by a rubber gasket when I took it out of the box"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Ended up pulling the gasket out of the grove it fit in. Simple to replace it around the wire-mesh grill. Pushed it back in and hooked everything up. Gain was set to -30db when I turned it on so no bass whatsoever coming out of it. Turned it up a little bit and seems to be working as expected. Bass sounds great. Footswitch works well and will come in handy. Set the cutover to ON and the amount at 80hz. I have a small room so I didn't have to crank up the gain hardly at all.. at halfway (0db) it was shaking the windows.
If you're like me, you do a lot of review checking and have seen the ones complaining about this thing dying and how much it costs to ship it to get repaired. So I thought I'd confirm that build quality could be an issue.
I opened a ticket (no phone support for speakers) with Presonus detailing what happened and what I did to remedy the situation looking for an answer as to whether there was "supposed" to be some kind of adhesive holding this thing in place and whether they think my solution is going to last. I'll update my review based on their response.
Overall, great features and price for a sub. Sounds great for now. Time will tell if it lasts or if I get the shipping blues trying to get it fixed.
Sounds fantastic so far. Time will tell if it holds up.
Frequency Cutover and the included bypass footswitch are great. Great coverage of inputs/outputs
Ease of Use
Fairly simple... hook it up, dial in the amount of gain you need for your space and set the cutover frequency knob.
As stated... not too impressed so far. I had concerns reading some of the reviews out there that build quality was an issue. They seem to be valid seeing as the grill was hanging by a piece of rubber when I took it out of the box.
As long as it holds up... great value. Sounds really great for what it costs. Just hope it lasts.
I'll let you know. Haven't heard back from them yet.
The Wow Factor
Wow factor got dropped to 1 when I took it out of the box and had the grill dangling in front of me like some kind of quality control gremlin had tried to make a break for it....
Blues, Rock, Metal, EDM, all over the place really.
