Bought one. Its nifty that it integrates so well with the A2 speakers, however I wouldn't reccomend for music listening, or theater listening either. It integrates okay with some music but other music I have to reach under the desk and tune it down. Its almost not worth having it on, because once you move to a different type of music you have to go reach down there again and change the gain. I've played with different placements, putting a balled up shirt in it, messing with the gain/crossover/phase and so forth. Additionally, the gain never goes above 10%.(15?) 10% is belchy boomy and overpowering. Would not buy again. I dont know if this an appropriate place to put a review of the product, if not, sorry. Just thought I would warn ya.
Hi there! I've got an S8 as well and It took me a while to get my settings right, The biggest thing for me was keeping the crossover as low as possible. Keeping it low means your sub is only putting out frequencies 50hz and below, that way you don't run into any belchy boom like you're talking about, only tight kicks. Keeping the cossover low also means it wont interfere with music that doesn't have much bass. At the higher settings, it'll try to put out the lower mids and that can make the E string on acoustic guitar tracks sound pretty fuzzy. Anyway, hope that helps, let me know if it does!
