• Two inches is two inches any way you look at it and that is just how much room you save (squared) if you pick the middle grade Sunfire subwoofer. In the end, you don't give up too much output or low-end reach for the compromise.
• This is the original small subwoofer and there is a reason why it has sold tens of thousands of units. Tell your wife it is the "little black dress" of the subwoofer market. She will understand (let's hope).
• The new grille helps the woofer look a little less conspicuous in the room. The original subwoofer really presented the driver boldly. The Sunfire
True Subwoofer EQ looks a little slicker when installed in a room.Low Points
• There is no rosewood option on the Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ, as there is on the Signature model.
• You can find the end of this subwoofer if you drive your system to insane limits (as I am apt to every once in a while). This issue is only for extremists and is the exact reason why there is a bigger and significantly more powerful Signature model. Conclusion
If you were making a list of the ten most influential audiophile products of all time and you left off the Sunfire True Subwoofer, you would be a schmuck. This woofer proved to nonbelievers that magic was possible, while showing audiophiles that you could get real bass into your system in ways other than coffin-sized floor-standing speakers. The Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ is an absolute classic.
