    150 Watt. (30 Hz-150 Hz) 8" cone

    It's an OK sub for budget buyers and in need of a sub, but wont satisfy audiophiles out there. If any of you out there owning this one i'd like to hear your pro's and con's too.

    $59 for this big heavy box w/ free shipping.

    CC's selling a similar version for $200.

    Check out other refurb'ed items too, very good prices. Also, register w/ them and you'll even save more (special prices for registered users).


    http://www.shoponkyo.com/products.cfm?id=3
    (OR go to shoponkyo.com and select Refurbished items)


    EVEN HOTTER!

    Join their club (c) before you check out and earn 10 points, which are $10 off for your purchase. Register your Onkyo products and get points too....

    So, the sub is basically less than $50 w/ 10 club points.

    I was looking to see if I could find that subwoofer for less at one of the authorized retailers for you (I'm waiting on a whole system that's on backorder; Onkyo's refurbed price is more than what I'm paying retail, so I thought I'd check and see if that was the case for this too for you)

    People spend over $2000 for some brands of subwoofers?? WOW (found that while searching)

    I didn't see it listed at two of the companies that I was doing business with.

    just ordered, couldn't resist, i've been looking for months for a <100 dollar powered sub with a good nameplate (ie, not klh, exc) since my kenwood receiver only has a 3v preout.

    will let u guys know how it sounds.

    I got a KLH from Costco a year or so back, and it's pretty good but not amazing... 100w 10". I wonder if this would outperform, since it's a much better name. TEMPTING...

    Thanks to the AT Hot Deals Forum, I have spent most of my $$ from the Federal Savings Program(Income Tax Refund) already!
    This is just what I have been looking for.
    Thanks for the info!

    This was also mentioned over at the large-boned billfold site: link

    The only truly important addition to the current conversation is that this could be $49 shipped if you join Club Onkyo first to get your 10 free Onkyo points. These will be applied just before you confirm your order to bring your total down from $59 to $49. My order's in for $49 shipped.

    I took a chance. I've wanted a sub for awhile, but just can't bring myself to pay a hundred or two for one. Hopefully this works decently enough. For $50, you aren't risking too much. $49 here after joining the club.

    Just got mine today!
    All I ever received from them was a backorder email. No mention of it being shipped before I got it today.
    Very nice and worth the price.
    It was refurbished as posted and all that was wrong was some of the vinyl had been scratched in 2 small places. They filled it in with a black sharpie.
    My model was just a *blem*. Works perfect.
    Thanks jakehd for the heads up!
