okay since i just bought the 8in version ill give you guys some insight. Its okay, it hits all the notes the notes, aren't exactly super precise. but it works It does get really loud. looks wise its a sub... Its not bad tbh.
Also great leg rest pretty comfortable
I would be interested in buying, but it's just hard to pull the trigger without setting some reviews. And 6 inch is just tiny... It's not much bigger than my speaker's 5.25 inch drivers. Does a 6 inch sub make any sense for my setup? I currently have StudioMonitor 350. they have decent bass extension, but not not enough omph. I'm not looking for anything earth-shattering, and I'm wondering if these would do the job of adding a bit more bass.

The StudioMonitor 350 are bookshelf speakers with 1" tweeter, 5.25" woofer and 8" passive radiator. That passive radiator really works quite well, giving the speakers great bass extension, but my only gripe is that it's a bit weak. That's why I was considering adding subwoofer.
I get what you're saying though, 6" is just way too small to be a particularly good addition to what I already have. With that in mind, how big is too big? I'm mostly looking for a subwoofer for music listening, not home theater. I've seen BIC and Klipsh subs on sale every now and then, but wasn't convinced something meant for home theater would be ideal for just music.

A subwoofer is a tremendous improvement to any speaker setup, whether it's used for music or movies. By relieving the other speakers of reproducing the bass frequencies, they will play with less distortion and the bass will give the sound a much larger sense of room-filling presence. A decent sub will also give you bass that you can feel. However, I'm not convinced that one of these smaller subs will do any of that.
I recently upgraded from a cheap 10" subwoofer, to a DIY build based on the 12" Dayton RSS315HF driver and the difference is huge for music, movies, and video games. With that said, the addition of the older sub to my bookshelf speakers with 6.5" woofers was also a very big deal.
I would love buy buy a sub but there is just a lack of reviews!
$150 + Free shipping for Canadians off NCIX
Now it's a really good price! Good job massdrop! Sadly is USA ony drop... any plan to add EU?

And any option to ship to Australia?
has anyone bought or heard of this? im using centrance speakers and think about adding a sub. Is this good?
I'd try it if it was the 8". Bought the YU5's last week and am impressed overall so far.
Buying for 209.99$ + 74$ of shipping and when it get here i've to pay other 60€ of postal fees & taxes... total about 380$. S**t no!

(sigh)...was a joke, hence the smile.
Too bad it looks like this won't drop any more :/ Might just buy it at $209.
work well with YUMIs?
rjacobs
I think that at this price is one of the best combination one can do with YUMI... also is supposed that product from same house will work great paired (it's also written in the description page). I hope really someone other will buy it...

I think these would be great with the YUMIs. I have the YUMI bamboo set, and they really fill up a room for a smaller system. These should provide just enough oomph to fill out the lower end (which is already pretty decent with the YUMIs).
I will commit it. I'm searching such small subwoofer to use it with kanto YU3 i bought from massdrop, because i've few space in my room. I think that kanto products are very good on quality and sound. I can't found (sadly) in my country a valid and cheap alternative for a so small 6'' subwoofer.
I really can't find any information, reviews or pricing on this anywhere. Its hard to tell if I'd be interested, I am looking for a subwoofer but there with out the info I'm wondering how these even made it to a active Massdrop.
Honestly for 200 get a Bic F12 and be done with it. I don't see how something with a 6 inch driver can be a subwoofer.

DriedBanana - True, but this is likely for those with desktop setups with limited space i.e. Audioengine A2+ or A5+.
I too would like to pair this with an Audioengine A5. I'm a bit concerned about the 6" driver though, that's seems quite small for a sub.

lots of high end manufacturers make 6" subs, check out the Genelec 5040B (6.5" driver)
so close, would be in for matte white to match my YUMIs
Hmm... this looks tempting. Would this pair well with Audioengine A2+ or even the 5+? I've been debating between the Audioengine S8, PSB Subseries 100, and now this one has entered the fray.

I'd jump on these if I could find solid reviews on it. The S8 will likely come up again soon as well.

I think it would help the A2, as they have a mere 2.75" woofer, or the Kanto YU3 also on Massdrop. When I say "help", I'm considering these miniature speakers are meant for a market that I'm unfamiliar with.
Kanto's specs on this sub, most notably frequency response, are odd.
These are all in Kanto's specs for the SUB6. Which one is it? Frequency response- 35 Hz - 250 Hz Frequency response- 35 Hz - 165 Hz +/- 6 dB Frequency range- 30 Hz - 250 Hz
I can't remember the last time I saw any considerable speaker with a "+/- 6 dB" next to its FR. That's a big number for frequency response variation in SPL. Without seeing a graph, I'm guessing they want to show a low frequency of 35Hz even though it may be at -6dB. With +/-3dB instead, that low number may be more like 45Hz or 50Hz. By comparison, the Audioengine S8 you mentioned has a FR of 27Hz-180Hz (+/-1.5dB).
