Can't beat what you get for the price
Sofacykel, 01.08.2020
Use: At home in a small untreated room, for multimedia.

With Bluetooth and a desk volume knob with subwoofer level adjustment thrown in the mix you can't find any other brand offering all these features, let alone in this price range. It's incredible.

Some notes:
The volume knob's output is not fully linear and I suspect the entire audio signal is actually sent through the knob. The potentiometer has a significant jump in volume around 50%. It's hard to get the bass just right, and if you do and you're not super careful when adjusting volume you might end up dragging the subwoofer level with your adjustments since the knobs are milimeters apart. Some notching on the sub wheel would have helped tremendously.

The bass is slightly boomy and for some reason more directional than expected. The crossover seems to have a pretty steep curve so make sure you hit the frequency and sub volume just right.

Bluetooth sounds "passable" on JBL 305 MKII's but they definitely catch the lossy compression artifacts. Not recommended to play loud over Bluetooth, but it definitely works and is easy to use!

It's pretty easy to recommend for multimedia use, especially if you're running Mackie monitors as well. Looks great, incredibly easy to use, has more bells and whistles than other offerings, just has some quirks. If you can live with that it's probably the best ~200€ you can spend getting some low-end into your system.

Great product
Lewi, 07.07.2020
Really cannot fault this sub, recently upgraded from the older CR3's to the new CR5-X's and wanted to get a little extra kick in.

Pros:
Modern Design
BT Capable
Good level of control on the back
The remote device is a nice addition for fine-tuning (Although I don't use mine as I have a DAC)

Con's:
Does not support XLR inputs/outputs

Für das Geld sicher gut
neonleon, 04.07.2020
Als wohlfühl entertaiment sub vollkommen ausreichend. es ist kein Kinobass und auch kein Studioabhörspezialist aber wenn man nur zwei Monitore besitzt in der gleichen Preisklasse, und das Ding bisschen eingestellt hat, dann bekommt man schon ein Upgrade. Alles wirkt voller, räumlicher, das geht schon klar. Ich hab die JBL 305 und werde mir jetzt dennoch den JBL LSR 310 s gönnen, weil wenn man schon Geld in die Hand nimmt, dann langfristig investieren.
Dem Mackie fehlen halt die absoluten Tiefen. Stimmen, Bassläufe etc. wirken realistisch und fett, aber ein WOW bleibt aus. Aber da das mein erster Sub ist, muss ich schon sagen, wer zwei 5 Zoll Monitore hat, der sollte sich schon ein SUB zulegen. Macht schon Bock!

Perfekte ergänzung zu Studiomonitoren
user04373, 10.07.2020
Funktioniert mit allen mackie CR Lautsprechern Perfekt, im grunde nur plug and play. Der Sub hat ordentlich Power und hört sich auch gut an aber es kann manchmal vorkommen, dass der mitgelieferte Lautstärke Regler in einer ganz bestimmten Position eine art Schwingungsgeräusch auslöst. Passiert nicht immer, ist aber jedesmal nervig...
