Pioneer SW-8MK2 review

Pioneer SW-8MK2 has an 8-inch driver size vs JBL LSR310S has a 10-inch. The subwoofer has a crossover that can be set from 40 to 150 Hz, which allows you to use a subwoofer with virtually any full-range speaker. The bass output from this subwoofer is excellent, deep enough for most applications, and loud enough in a small/medium-sized room. A very musical subwoofer, just fantastic for listening to music regardless of genre. Movies sound great, quite deep and impressive. The design looks great and very compact.
