How Low Does It Go? Bass limit 25 Hz at 82 dB SPL This small sub gives you deep enough bass to keep up with any CD or DVD.

How Big the Bang? Average SPL from 25 to 62 Hz 94.7 dB Maximum SPL 103.5 dB at 62 Hz Dollars per dB $4.48 The sub's peak SPLs were moderate, but well distributed over its frequency range.

The Bottom Line The ability to reach down deep into the 25-Hz region and still produce solid sound, combined with its low price and full feature set, make the T70.1 PBM a good value. (I'd like a little better warranty, though.)
