Pioneer SW-8 review

This 8-inch subwoofer gives a good extension. The output power of the subwoofer is 100 watts.It produces deep clean bass. Enjoy a wide range of sounds for music, movies, television, etc. It is possible to fine-tune the sound: phase switch, frequency crossover, volume, auto power-off, speaker cable inserts, or RCA inputs.

This model has a minimalistic design. It is presented in black and is made of high-quality material. The setup was simple. There is a blue light indicating when it is on. There is an automatic tuning that works when the bass is detected. It has a separate volume control.
