      Comments about NXG NX-BAS-500 12"" 500-Watt Powered Subwoofer:

      This sub only produces bass IF you turn the bass to MAX on your receiver as well as turning the sub level to max and the volume on the sub to 3/4 or better. It will not work if the crossover is set to 40 meaning it does not produce bass UNDER 40Hz regardless of what the specs say. I got best results by setting the crossover on the receiver to 110-200 Hz. If you want great bass get the BIC Acoustech PL-200 which is much better sounding and easier to setup. The BIC works well with crossover at 40 and volume set to 1/2 or lower. Much more bang for the buck. I will never buy an NXG sub again and really sorry I did.

          Comments about NXG NX-BAS-500 12"" 500-Watt Powered Subwoofer:

          Sounds awesome to me. It easily shakes the windows at moderate volume levels. Had a hum when first connected. Either I've gotten used to it or it's gone away. Also auto on is slow to switch on, and quick to switch off. It's far better than anything, I've had in the past.

            Comments about NXG NX-BAS-500 12"" 500-Watt Powered Subwoofer:

            I'm very pleased with how good this sub sounds. It can't fill such a huge area that I have (livng room is open to kitchen, dining room and front room with two story ceiling), but it does a sufficient job with what I could afford to buy.

            Auto selector is not quite sensitive enough, so I turn it on during movies.

                Excellent sound reproduction for both music and home theater. Yes, it will shake the room like many other subs. But it also sounds great for the price. It isn't a one note boomy sub, which I hate. For the price, it is hard to beat the quality of this thing! I feel like you'd have to spend at least a hundred more to get a similar quality sub.

                As an added plus, the sub looks great and isn't too big. It fits nicely in the room without being too intrusive.
