Thanks for the review Steve, I'm very interested in this for my 3020i's. Will you be reviewing the Q Acoustics 3030i anytime soon? Thanks

Other than stuff I've already had in and tested, I doubt I'll be reviewing much of anything new for the foreseeable future.

Is it because of the rounded cabinet, size or just want QA sub? There is often new grade-b BK P12-300SB the sealed 12" version available for 346£ which would make MUCH more sense being cheaper and offering better performance aswell. Also i would see the support better from BKE if you have to deal with any issue. QA in the past have had quite many amp issues.

Thanks for your comment. I'm not convinced at all that the BK would offer better performance other than going deeper, which I certainly don't need. Yes the aesthetics are preferable but not essential. My priority is music and tight bass. I'll demo it in my local hifihut at some stage. I have heard the BK regularly as my brother has it, and with movies it's awesome, with music I thought it was a bit loose

There can be many things that can affect what you heard as loose bass and i seriously doubt the P12 sub was fully the blame there. You can afford to pick the XXLS400 (400£) model too which has better driver and almost twice the power from QA sub. It has been known to be great subwoofer for 2ch music listening over 8-10years already with members of AVF! You also get the high level connection which many 2ch audiophiles rave about.

Agreed having owned numerous subs, several svs, Mjs, velodyne,rel,MK,SUNFIRE, the Bks are outstanding for the cost.

Hi Steve
Thanks for the review.
Is your future lack of input connected to the current C virus outbreak or will you not be reviewing for avforums?

*edit* Just seen replies above. Ignore me :) However the sub still needs to be set up correctly which may account for any looseness you heard.

The BK but it also has tight bass and can be used for music. It's one of the features (along with the deep bass) that makes it stand out from the vast majority of subs anywhere near its price. Since home theatre is not your priority then it comes down to whether the very nice aesthetics is worth around 200 quid more than a better sub.

I was referring to Covid19.

Why are you not going to be doing many reviews? I would have thought the companies are going to be keen for a bit of promotion and when Netflix are talking about reducing the quality of their service to reduce strain on the internet! I would think that hifi and av are one of the few things that people will still be buying as usage must be through the roof! I imagine you wear gloves when setting up and personally I would appreciate more reviews while I vegetate! When you rub someone up the wrong way I enjoy defending you and your valid opinions too! I am happy to do a few reviews if you want though you would have to give it a hell of a lot of polish as it is hard to polish a turd!🤣
