Bypass Feature
Connect any standard latching footswitch with 1/4" connector and bypass your subwoofer during mixing to instantly hear how your subwoofer is affecting the mix

          I've only had this for a few weeks, but so far it meets my expectations. It's a lot bigger than I expected, but the gain and crossover knobs allow me to tailor it to my needs.

            I purchased this to use with a pair of KRK Rokit RP5's [G1] as I was missing a lot of low end and found myself overcompensating in my mixes.

            The addition of the 10s was nothing less than monumetal for my home studio. Not only does it cleanly, and acurrately reproduce low end frequencies but its level of crossover and volume control is a welcome addition.

            I would recommend purchasing a subwoofer isoation platform to even further isolate those frequencies, but all in all its a great, well made piece of gear. I am extremely happy with the purchase.

            The only problem is I now have to "re-learn" how to mix hearing what I was missing in the past...and that's not really a bad thing now, is it.

            Comments about KRK10s 10" 225W Powered Subwoofer:

            I purchased the KRK 10s subwoofer to fill out the sub-bass and bass frequencies from my smaller studio monitors. You can't really appreciate what you've been missing with your studio monitors until you turn on the sub for the first time.

            This sub integrates well with my KRK Rokit 5 monitors, which plug into the back of the sub and are easily controlled with the sweepable low-pass filter. The sub's volume control is more than adequate in range to precisely tune the sub to my room, although in my small studio I am working near the extreme low end of the volume control (-20 dB).

            All of the switches are on the back, which makes the sub look good but makes it a bit inconvenient.

                Comments about KRK10s 10" 225W Powered Subwoofer:

                I was quite thrilled when my KRK 10S arrived. The first thing that blew me away was how much depth this added. This was the missing piece to all my material. I love the ease of use, the air-moving sound and the overall "boom" that it gives to my music. If you've never recorded music with a subwoofer in-line...you're in for a treat. Right out of the box, it is easy as pie to hook up. A quick read through the booklet told me how to set it up and at what frequency. Immediately my music took on a whole new demention. I was rumbling things off shelves that I forgot were there. I am so pleased with the performance and the new ideas that the sound is generating for me. If you've never "felt" your music before....hold on to your hat!

                  I'm 100% happy with my purchase. This sub fills out a song like a dream. You never know how much you need a sub until you have one and can hear and feel the difference. I have been a fan of KRK for years. I bought this with two new powered 8'' monitors and they all are fantastic quality for the price. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to enhance their home studio, or just wants some great sound.

                    Have cheap $99 [...] and KEH sub woofers. This is much more powerful. Have it almost off so it won't blow me out of the room. No buzz, hum or rattles. Built like a small tank. No port noise a high volumes. Much clearer sound than the cheap subs. No port farts.

                            I highly recommend this sub with the KRK 6s ROKIT speakers. This really fills out the low end. Has a crossover to eliminate the low end from the ROKIT speakers. So the whole sound is very solid without exaggeration. Getting the levels correct was the hardest part...but once I got it sounding flat with the room characteristics it's quite amazing. A must for near-field music monitoring. NOT FOR HOME THEATERS!

                            I use this product in conjunction with KRK VXT6's. I like the clean tones it produces. Bass reproduction is very accurate. I have a hard time finding a happy balance with the crossover in the back, but I don't blame the sub for that.

                            The one thing I don't like about it is there is no input volume adjustment. The only volume adjustment is for sub output level only.
                            In our studio, where the power is clean this is fine, but my travel rig has some slight line noise [not ground fault] and the amp in this sub amplifies the heck out of it. The sub has a ground loop attenuator but I have not induced any ground noise to try it out.

                            All in all, if you have no line noise/interference then you will be in great shape and very pleased with the performance of this sub.

                              I have been using a pair of KRK v8 (1st Generation) for years now as my main nearfield monitors. Adding the sub to this setup has been amazing. I am very happy with my purchase! Finally I have the low end I was missing in my mix setup. The discount I got from B&H as a vendor partner to my employer was unbelievable.

                              I got this to go with my ancient krk 7000B's because they completely lacked bottom end response. So far, this sub is working great. The sub audio is not exaggerated and very tight and punchy. Even in a small room with bad acoustics it sound great and doesn't exaggerate the bass. Not much else to say, its a subwoofer..
