I saw that as well. You can't beat that price if you want to add a little bass in a small to mid room to a set of bookies. Though this sub huffs and puffs (chuffs and has port noise), you can tone that down by aiming it directly at the opposite wall along the L/R front plain. In other words face it perpendicular to your L/R speakers against either wall L or R. Then don't overdrive it! Keep that volume knob below 12 o'clock and you should be fine.
