Sounds great, wish it was louder....
Sebsweden, 13.06.2014
I bought this to fill out the low end of my little PA. I had two small QSC K8, that sound fantastic, just needed to get a bit more low end.

This bass is really small, weighs close to nothing, and sounds really good. I had a small DJ-gig for about 40 people. I started playing and turned it up. A big warm low end filled the small room, and I was really pleased. After about 30 minutes I raised the volume a little and the small clip-light started flashing - what a shame! I really wanted to keep it, but I just can't use an active subbass with this little power.

Maybe it will be enough for home use, or for the occasional (laid back) garden party. But if you're DJing in front of more than 10 people, forget about it. You will need at least 400-500w.

Other than that, I liked it a lot.

Best value for a buck!

Before I bought this I owned LD Systems Dave10G3 and I truly loved the bass sound. I wanted something with high quality sub with that true LD PA sound into my theatre. So I ordered 88 A and it truly delivers what I wanted.

Even it's small and it seems not to have that much power but it sounds excellent with anything I put throught it. Those two 8" woofers go really low give enough bounch to movies, music and games where I use it.

If you compare this to common home theatre system woofers you get more of the real cinema sound which is one of the reasons we go cinemas at the first place.

5 star product and solid LD Systems quality all the way! I recommend this from home theatres to home studios.

Good Sound in a Small Package
03.03.2014
This must be one of the smallest sub woofers on the market. I was looking for something compact to add a bit of low down punch to my 2 x 10 inch powered speakers, so this fitted the bill.

I have previously used a 15 inch sub which I was finding too heavy and bulky. This unit is really compact. It houses two 8 inch speakers and is really easy to set up. Plug in your kettle lead and you are away! The unit is fairly heavy but not too bulky, so can be lifted easily, you can put your hand in the port and carry it that way one handed.

The quality of the unit is fine, it has a nice crackle black finish.

Try it, you may be surprised.

Remakable suff.

I did not know how much of my favorite rock bands sound I was missing until I got this LD bass box. OK, not just the bass guitar and drum, but a good part of lead guitar, key board & even the singers voice too. This enhances them all.

Smooth sounding if used sensibly.

I also do a solo/duo act in bars/coffee houses with guitar/keyboard, I find that siting on this at the microphone, with this connected to the line out on my Marshall AS100D acoustic combo surprisingly brings out a fuller and smoother sound to acoustic (electric) guitar and my voice too. While sitting on the LD bass, I can feel the bass working, the sound is sweet.

Needs a carrying handle though. UPDATE 24/09/15 Fitted a carrying handle (probably voided the guarantee), but much easier to carry, so gets used more often and for good reason too, sweetens the sound of guitar & voice so much.
