I have last years model of this, and it looks as if the specs didn't change much. It serves my purpose well since I have 3 little kids and can't have a sub that shakes the windows without waking in of them up. If your looking for wall shaking bass, look elsewhere, but this sounds just fine if you need to round out some small satellite speakers and don't crank it often.
Yeah, this is kind of a normal sale price for this sub. I have the earlier version of this sub in my small home office/workshop. I use it for music in a 2.1 setup - with a set of Pioneer BS-41 speakers. (Love the BS-41s by the way.)They are all connected to a Denon AVR-1612 receiver I got for $80 last year when Best Buy was having those nice clearance deals. For the price, this system sounds real nice. The sub provides a decent reasonably clean bass addition. But it will not satisfy a big room or someone who wants a lot of deep bass. I would classify it as providing more of a supplemental low end to the music, unlike a larger more powerful sub where you immediately feel lots of bass when switched on.
I have a BIC F12 sub in my budget home theater, and that provides some good bass for movies, but not sure I would want it for music, might be a bit muddy. So you got to choose based usage. For a low budget sub, the SW-8 can work, if placed in the right location, particularly for a near-field type setup as in my usage, where you might not want room thumping bass anyway. Also I had compared the SW8 and a few other lower end subs, and it seemed tighter and produced less port huffing sounds than the others.
