What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Monitor Audio MRW-10 3G Walnut Subwoofer
  • There are very small body dimensions. Looks adorable.
  • Body of this sub look very nice. It looks like equilateral cube with its dimensions.
  • Looks nice! Proportional dimensions of it is a big pros.
  • For it's size the sound is very deep. It's fine to place it anywhere in the middle sized room.
  • The design is not modern, rather with a reference to the audio technology of the times of my parents' youth. With it's sizes looks like bedside table.
Wharfedale Diamond SW150 Subwoofer
  • This sub for the money is amazing, the size, weight and build quality is VERY good.
  • It's big, it's heavy, it's solid and placed correctly and paired with a decent amp it's wonderful to listen to.
  • It is plenty loud/deep enough for my tastes. Build quality is good and it is not too big. Recommended.
  • Amazing sounding sub. One lost star because of size and weight: it's a beast.
  • When it arrived I was surprised just how big and also heavy it was, be prepared to make room for something the size of a good Foot stool in your living room!

What customers say about "Audio"
Monitor Audio MRW-10 3G Walnut Subwoofer
  • It uses of high quality power supply and amplifier class D.
  • You can notice a prolonged after-playing of some frequencies.
  • Enough bass with his head in order to add sound volume, depth and complement the sound, and sometimes even in excess.
  • I bought this sub in addition to the acoustics of the same company, the bottom gives clear and deep, for a room of 18 sq.m. the sound is not lost at the bottom of the front speakers.
  • The phonite is ugly! Nothing helps with replacing the cords.
Wharfedale Diamond SW150 Subwoofer
  • The bass did shake the room and gave every impact, explosion or action a beefy underscore,lovely.
  • Wharfedale keep introducing fantastic value for money speakers that keep producing a great sound.
  • Very controlled deep bass you would expect from subwoofers twice its price. You simply can not go wrong with this subwoofer in medium sized rooms.
  • The sw150 adds a subtle bass to already lovely sounding system. plenty of range to add more depending on your taste.
  • I recently watched Blade Runner for the first time - the opening scene just comes to life, immersing you in amazing audio.

What customers say about "Features"
Monitor Audio MRW-10 3G Walnut Subwoofer
  • I love the detailed bass with sufficient depth that this woofer gives.
  • Clear, resilient, dynamic and deep bass. Highly recommend it to use.
  • Bass does not choke, clearly responds to every blow and swing, does not howl, etc. It plays very clearly, deeply and dynamically.
  • When listening, you can not hear the stray sound (air swirl) slotted reflex that pleases.
  • Auto power off works after 15 minutes, but any pulse can bring out their sleep sub and an active state, for example, turning off the power switch of the speakers.
Wharfedale Diamond SW150 Subwoofer
  • To get the best results some patience is needed as slight adjustments can make a big difference, follow the instructions!
  • Its great having adjustments on the sub and we have it just behind our sofa so get a nice little rumble and kick when the sub kicks in.
  • It is easy to overdo the effect and make it horribly over the top - but the adjustment is easy to tweak with the dial on the back of the unit.
  • Lots of adjustments on the subwoofer to get the sound with a bit more heft in the bass dept.
  • With just a few minutes to adjust the volume and cut-off frequency, it fits in perfectly with my other speakers.
