    Audioengine AS8 reviews

    AS8W Powered Subwoofer (White) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent blend for the A2+ speakers Setting this S8 subwoofer up takes time and patience. Manipulating the Volume-Crossover-and Phasing controls is a must to blend with the A2+ Speakers. Once you get it right it just pops right in for spacious, transparent, and low end sound. Set the volume at the 50% mark on the computer first.( Windows 7 )

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AudioEngine Subwoofer Bought in on owners positive reviews. I felt my newly purchased Audioengine HD6's needed a little bass. It really adds to the sound. 5Stars for the S8. Definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Quality Indescribable. I purchased it to go with the Definitive Technology Incline and it is flawless. It does not have the silly auto off function which is a nuisance for people listening to low volume audio a lot. The sound is so perfect and so adjustable it cannot be matched by many high end sub woofers I have listened to. This brand as well as Def Tech are top quality and fairly priced. It is expensive but fairly priced. It has plenty of power if you turn it up to shake the entire house and every floor. But I prefer accurate sound over excessive bass which is hard to find among the countless sub woofers available. Also packaging and white finish are beyond superb. Oh, and Audioengine A5+ and Def Tech Studio Series or Incline are excellent speakers to go with this. This is definitely a better sub woofer than the regular Def Tech ones unless it is the high wattage sealed ones in which case you would pay twice thus anyways. Any type of song or movie sounds incredible makes you feel like you are there. Bottom line, buy this before trying anything else because you won't have to! Oh, and be a responsible high end sub listener and get real cables like the monster gold plated or something. A DAC (high bitrate/sample rate audio card) is also a requirement for any quality audio component to sound good so don't skip out or you may not be hearing the same awesomeness I am hearing :).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thinking about buying a 2nd for my smaller pair Solid. Came very well packaged. Good instructions. Really nicely made. You should get it because the added low end will make you very happy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lows in an 8" package I had the Kef Eggs, just wanted some subwoofer to fill the gap, the color goes with my white eggs, and the bass is good enough. Quite happy with the setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audioengine AS8B Powered Subwoofer Provides the added bottom end punch to the HD6s. Sounds great.
