Final Take
We connected the MS-10.1 up in our office lobby. The room itself measures about 700 square feet. I felt it would be well beyond the boundary of the tiny subwoofer. Nevertheless, we plugged it in and began a proper break-in period with various music selections. With the volume set to a twelve o'clock position (half-way) we were all very impressed with the output. Still, the sub seemed better suited to mid to upper bass frequencies than to those frequencies below 50 cycles.

After running the sub in for several days, I brought the unit home, where the volume is well over 1,900 cubic feet in my living room theater. However, the MS-10.1 was an entirely new subwoofer here. With the sub placed in the front corner of the room (one foot from either supporting wall) and the vent facing into the corner, the output and performance were tremendous. And yet the MS-10.1 still had the capability to finesse high bass frequencies.

I am not one for gimmicks, and I am not one easily impressed. The RBH MS-10.1 represents a technical achievement certain to be copied by others in years to come, and delivers on claims of hard hitting bass down into the mid 20Hz range. More importantly, the RBH MS-10.1 delivers a value to customers seeking a compact solution to high-output needs.
