This subwoofer delivers a real, three-dimensional and voluminous sound. With regards to the musical performance, the SUB E-9 F is an excellent partner with the “Old Karmuffel” by Paul Kalkbrenner.

The bass fits homogeneously into the overall soundscape, and there aren’t any trace of oversteer, even at quite considerable volume.
