Definitive Technology Supercube 2000 review

Definitive Technology Supercube 2000 has 650 W vs Audioengine S8 – 250 W power. This sub is compact. Its height is 10-inches, as is its width with depth, like a real cube. The SuperCube 2000 features a 7.5-inch woofer combined with two 7.5-inch low-level passive bass drivers. The SuperCube 2000 subwoofer is very minimalistic, starting with the look and ending with the connectivity options. So the device is equipped with a single LFE input and a Min / Max level control, which means that the subwoofer settings will be controlled using a preamplifier or receiver.
