Monoprice 9723 review

This is an interesting combination of an excellent enclosure, a good speaker and a fair amplifier. This thing sounds good, goes low, and hits hard enough to be the only sub most people need unless they are listening to very high levels. You will see that its frequency response falls-off substantially below 50 Hz. It better keep boosted the 25 Hz band of your pre-amp equalizer by about 4 dB to partially compensate for this, without adding noticeable distortion or "boominess" to the sound. Concerning the Monoprice 9723 vs Sony SA-W2500 comparison their driver sizes are 12 and 10 inches respectively. Close up it's not brilliantly constructed (look at the price though), but given that it's all black and sits in the corner it's not really getting a lot of attention anyway. Monoprice 9723

Sony SA-W2500 review

The SA-W2500 Subwoofer is a powerful low-frequency foundation for your home theater or Hi-Fi system. It has an impressive 100 watts of power output and integrated feedback, while a 25 cm woofer delivers stunning sound pressure and clean bass. Motional Feedback technology automatically reduces distortion and ensures low-frequency transmission is perfectly clean. The automatic on / off function activates the subwoofer when necessary, freeing you from having to do this operation each time manually. What about dimensions Sony SA-W2500 has 9 kg vs 18 kg from Monoprice 9723. Sony SA-W2500
