Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior Reviewed

sunfire_super-jr-subwoofer.jpgHave you ever seen Paris Hilton carrying around one of those little miniature-breed dogs that fit disgustingly in a $6,000 Prada purse and actually likes to go shopping on Rodeo and thought, "Who the hell would want a measly dog that small?" Now apply that concept to subwoofers and the idea seems to all of a sudden to make more sense, doesn't it? Sunfire's True Subwoofer Super Junior is the audio example of, "It's not the size of the pencil, it's how it writes," because this little Bob Carver gem comes packed with the same 1500-watt tracking downconverter digital amp that is found in the 11-inch-squared Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ woofer, although the Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior is a mere nine inches cubed.

Priced at $949, the Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior is designed and marketed to the gamer market and desktop audio systems, as well as home theaters that are in smaller rooms. In many ways, the Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior is the most impressive of the Sunfire True subwoofer line. While not capable of the same sick volume output as its two bigger brothers, this small woofer doesn't act shy when you crank it up. Shoot-'em-up scenes have balls. Depth charges (think U-571) plunge low in your room, despite having only nine inches of cabinet (squared) to work with. The Bob Carver Sunfire tracking downcoverter amp is at the center of the performance that can send the robust yet tiny woofer driver moving like it's channeling James Brown live at The Apollo.

sunfire_super-jr-subwoofer.jpgHigh Points
• This is the smallest of the small subwoofers, yet it still can rock like Pantera.
• The internal amplifier in the much less expensive Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior is close to (if not exactly the same as) the one in the much more expensive Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ.

Low Points
• There is no room correction on this subwoofer, like its more expensive, bigger brother has, meaning that you have to guess what the right settings are, which is hard to do even for experienced audiophiles.  

Conclusion
With the Sunfire True Subwoofer Super Junior you get a tremendous value in a subwoofer that can hide in a corner of a room and provide amazingly, shockingly deep and loud bass from an absolutely tiny cabinet. People simply can't believe that you can get such output from such a tiny woofer, but it is true.
