thanks!
any idea when this might drop again? been trying to get a new sub since i missed the last one and really want this one.
Just a note,
That if you have a router, try not to place this probably within a 1 - 4 foot range as the wireless signals do cause some humming / sounds that are intermittent and low, but it is there for those who have discerning ears.
Yay! Had a mixup on the order, but Massdrop was quick to fix it and kanto sent me the replacement. Super happy with it so far, and I'll have a review ready in a little while.

Fastest drop I've ever been a part of. Didn't pay attention though, Sub8 doesn't come with a RCA cable. Found a spare and gave it a shot. Sounds clean and [more importantly] it sounds good.

I hope the orders ship sooner than later. I've seen kanto's stuff on more office set up videos lately and it has me pumped. Hope to hear an update soon!
no shipping to denmark =(
Got the drop! Thank you Massdrop & Kanto!
@ilickspam the name of the game for subs is "bass extension", i.e. what is the lowest frequency the sub can reproduce before it peters out. The cheaper subs, such as this one, quit fairly high up in the mid 40Hz(* see note). If you want a sub for PC games this one seems like a fine choice for the money. If, however, you want a sub with similar aesthetics that will rattle your bones (and house) in the low 20Hz for movies then you're looking at something like the SVS SB-1000 in white but you're going to pay $500 for it. http://www.svsound.com/products/sb-1000 The other benefit of lower base extension is that your brain cannot perceive the location source of low frequency waves. So with a sub that goes only into the 40's you will be able to pinpoint where the bass is coming from much more than a sub producing bass in the low 20's, the former leading to a loss of immersion.
*NOTE: Even though the specs say it goes down to 35Hz, that is with a +/- 6dB threshold; the spec you really want is the 3dB threshold as that is where the power is half of the steady state. Companies release 6dB (or higher) specs to make their product look better and hope you don't realize you're not actually doing a proper apples to apples comparison with a sub that gives you its low bass extension as the 3dB point. I'm assuming this sub's 3dB point is in the mid 40's but it could even be in the low 50's. Without a frequency vs power chart it's impossible to know for sure but it's probably close.

totally depends on what speakers you are using the sub with. you kinda want the sub to pick up where the speakers leave off (frequency-wise) so if your speakers roll off around 70hz you want your crossover of the sub to be around that area (play around and find the cutoff that gives the fullest sound at your listening position, if it sounds good, it is good)

This is great advice thanks! I have the Kanto YUMI's for reference. I'll take a look at the reported freq. roll off.
Would purchasing these versus another sub woofer probably be only for aesthetic reasons since? My idea of subwoofers are that they're all pretty similar.
Kanto's support is sooooo good! Bought one of these about 2 years ago, still was under their warranty. They sent me a brand new unit for exchange, and I swear it's way better than the one I had! Louder, punchier, doesn't overheat. A++++++ support and product and value.
Pleeeease everyone start requesting. With all of the reviews i've read, i have to have this for my Kanto YU5s. I've not seen this reviewed any less than a solid well designed product.

Sorry for the delayed response, not sure if this answer helps now that the drop is over. The speakers will ship from Canada.
@ktam @JEWbacca @Thisispt @babybum Canadian shipping now available!
Hi everyone, by request we spoke to our vendor and were able to add shipping to Canada in this drop. Thanks for the suggestion!
This sub would be great for me - if it had line level in and out....
Will there be a drop on the sub6?
anyways to ship it to singapore?
Just got mine in today. So far so good. Decent boost to the overall sound from my yu5s. Just a tad large for putting under my computer desk. Some extent works as a foot rest, least the metal grill will help protect it from kicks.

How long till it ships?
Is this worth the upgrade over Dayton Audio SUB-800 8" 80 Watt?
