Now we turn our attention to what you would call the thump cube, the box of boom or you can even can it the bang block. Either way, you won't really find a single speaker anywhere on the six sides of this cube. The subwoofer is enclosed in a single reflex bandpass enclosure which is used seeing it can really pound in a certain low frequency range. The 6.5" high excursion driver is perfectly match for this mainstream system. Anything bigger and you would have the satellite speakers fighting to be heard above 80Hz.
The only thing you will notice is this large subwoofer port which is large enough to move one HELL of a lot of air. It is so big that I can reach in almost to my elbow (I am not a small man) before I can no longer fit. If you think I am over exaggerating that this port and subwoofer moves a lot of air, this video was made at 1/4 system volume and the subwoofer only set to half strength. You have to check out this DIVX codec based video I made HERE.
The subwoofer rear panel is comprised of the main amplifier and connection hub for the whole system. If there is a connection to be made or a cord to plug in, it inevitably will end up here. I will cover the connections and setup in more detail on the next page when I briefly run through the easy setup.
Last but not least in this section we cover the control hub for your new speaker system. Through this remote you can turn the system on/off, change the over volume of the system or change the subwoofer and/or center volume or even change the front to rear fade. If you are only using a two channel stereo signal, you can setup Logitech's matrix surround option for a simulated surround experience.
