These were made for Mitsubishi TV's, impossible to find any reviews. If you actually use the wireless, hard to beat this price. But wireless is kind of a gimmicky feature, with 2.4 GHz analog being very prone to interference from Wi-Fi, microwaves, etc. There are RCA inputs so you're not locked into wireless. But ignoring the wireless feature, it's pretty easy to find a better deal. Snobby audiophiles look down their noses at all <$100 models, but at 70W I think this would be a particular object of ridicule.
Any first-hand sound quality comparisons with other models?

"But ignoring the wireless feature, it's pretty easy to find a better deal" It is not easy. The closest deal for 8" downfiring subwoofer OF THIS SIZE (12"x12" - perfect for a small living room) is this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117402 - Pioneer SW-8 goes down to about $80 sometimes and I have it. But IMHO it is agly as hell compared to Polk unit (you can see gaps where veneer is glued to the sides) and have sharp corners (too afraid for our small baby to fall on it). Polk has nice finish and rounded corners. I know, I know - finish is not everything, but still I will eBay the Pioneer and get this one. Thanks OP

I've got the subwoofer and I can say only one thing - it is a $80 mistake. There is no standby mode like all the normal subs have - on/off switch only. The worst problem, there is no crossover control of any sort except the phase 180 deg switch. And boy - Pioneer sub is not ugly at all compared to this plastic backet with a PAINT STAMP logo on it. It looks like a great computer sub for kids, but no way I want to see it in my living room. Learn from my lesson folks - you don't want this one; save some money and get yourself a better unit.
