Fine Compact Sub, Particularly for Music
These small DT subs (including the current version of this one, the SuperCube 2000) are optimal under a specific set of circumstances: 1) You need a very small sub that's easy to place and move around, and 2) You do not want or need significant deep bass (below 30Hz) or subsonic (below 20Hz) performance. These small sealed subs offer very tight, musical bass -- and are quite convincing for movies as well, as long as you don't expect miracles.
Two of these wired in stereo can turn good bookshelf speakers into the equivalent of large floor-standers, while offering more flexible placement options and putting less demand on the receiver or amplifier. The SCIII includes speaker binding posts, and using its built-in crossover can be wired together with the main speakers to the amplifier for this purpose. You could then even add a deep-bass sub using the processor's LFE output specifically for shaking your house during action movies and such.
This combination of connection options is not present on many newer budget subwoofers. That, combined with its convenient form factor and musical sound, makes the SCIII, even though it's now an older, discontinued model, a very good buy as a refurb unit.Read full review...
All's well that ends well
Item was advertised as refurbished. The first one received was defective upon receipt. It was promptly exchanged without cost to me. The second sub I received seemed OK but a bit questionable, occasionally popped (noise) and a week later completely failed. This time instead of exchanging the subwoofer I received a new amplifier and a promise of a full refund if that didn't work. I was able to install the amp with ease. That seems to have worked well and the sub sounds great. The amp I removed & replaced was corroded and nasty looking, so the sub was obviously not "refurbished," at least as you would reasonably expect. The provider was slower to respondto my emails than I would have liked, but not intolerably so, and what I found more frustrating was that his responses were not thorough, left me wondering exactly what he meant and required follow up from me to get clarification. That may have been due in part to my lack of experience with eBay purchases. Provider seems dependable for sure, just needs a little polish. In the end, I am happy with the outcome.Read full review...
Very powerful small sub/low bass subwoofer.
This subwoofer I bought by an accident (did not really want it) to pair it with my Anthony Gallo A'Diva Ti's, Marantz 1601 slimline A/V receiver, for compact, stylish looking yet powerful Home Theater System. Previously owned Bose Acoustimass IV 10 "bass module" is easy blown by this little 650Watts,9" cube. Going down below 20Hz for those rumbling movie effects, WOW!!! When I listen to the music, I"m like in heaven. Off course it is not in the league of $2000 subs, but it delivers powerful and precised bass when needed. I cannot find anything that I dislike about this SuperCube III. Ones you blend it with satellite speakers (I never had big ones) it works like a charm., and it looks very pleasant.Read full review...

Definitive SuperCube III Subwoofer
In summary solid bass and small size. So far so good on quality and reliability, it's got a lot of power, even more than I can use in a moderately sized room.
LIGHTWEIGHT WITH GREAT FEATURES

Bought this to replace my M&K sub that 15+ years old. Having moved out of the audiophile world and into home theater, the supercube is terrific. Small footprint with larger than life sound. Just great.Read full review...
