Just turn subwoofer out level on your receiver way up, and turn sub's plate amp volume knob down to compensate. That usually fixes it.

That's like saying your car doesn't need to have a top speed of over 40MPH because that's the average speed over the course of its lifetime in a city (if even that). Sometimes you drive over the average.

Similarly, just because not every scene of every movie has either 20 Hz sound or 16 kHz sound doesn't mean those notes are useless. Why? Think of it this way:

Let's say a movie has some sort of high point, but only momentarily. We'll call it, I dunno, a climax. In in this climax, there's a lot of stuff going on that didn't happen during the rest of the movie, but again, it only lasts one scene. Is it okay to cut out this 5% of the movie since it's such a small portion? Yeah, didn't think so.

Not every scene has to be an explosion, but you certainly want to feel the explosion when it happens.

This can be applied to just about any aspect of cinema. Should every scene make you laugh? No. Should every scene make you cry? No. Should every scene be 1000 nits? No. Should every scene be 0 nits? No. Yet we find the ability to do all these extremes when we need them to, momentarily, useful.

Anyone know if they fixed the overly aggressive auto off feature on this sub yet? I read a review that mentioned it shuts itself off after as little as 30 seconds with no signal and then you miss a bit of the sound as it has to turn itself back on.

Dont think so, that's why I just always leave it set to on. No annoying humm or buzz or anything when doing that anyway so that's the way I deal with it. In the lot of reading I did before I bought this a while ago it doesn't seem that overly aggressive auto shut off is an issue exclusive to this sub alone.

That might work, but it demonstrates that it's a design defect nonetheless.

Of course, as seems standard on low price things. You do indeed get what you pay for. I have a Definitive Technologies Supercube subwoofer, have never had a problem with auto shutoff, it's tiny, and has great bass performance. But it cost what about 7 of these things go for new.

Wow, I think I found the guy who is always listing speakers for sale and just says "Good speaker. Hits hard and gets loud." Pretty sure he was asking on a qualitative level how good it was, not how does it work...
