Customer Reviews for Audioengine S8 Compact Powered Subwoofer
After adjusting the settings for crossover, phase and volume it is a welcome addition. It was easy to set up with the satellites and blends in nicely where it should. Not overly loud by any means. I play FLAC files through the system for music and everything sounds good when on-line using the computer. I'm very satisfied with the equipment and World Wide Stereo.
