    hi all

    anyone got/demoed the MJ Acoustics Pro 50 sub.

    what do you all think of it.

    its been getting great reviews.excellent for movies/music,and apparently ideal for small rooms (15'/12').

    ive got b&w 601's for my fronts which kick out good bass(had them 6 years and love them)but i feel im missing out,and need one to complete my setup.

    gonna go and demo one at the weekend.
    think ill probably get one,its a nice size/price(£299:D )

    any views would be welcome.

    regards cod

    My mate has got an MJ A Pro 50.
    I gotta say, that for its size it sounds pretty good. It's well made
    and is almost unoticable (apart from a rumble when needed).
    Naturally, it doesn't plumb the depths like a bigger air-shifter, but
    it still manages to add a bit of LFE pressure to the mix.
    I think it cost him 300 sheets, which is pretty good value.
    He has a black one, but i've seen them in alternative finishes.
    You can't argue with its price-:performance ratio!
    All in all, 300 sheets is not a bad outlay for this cube.

    I heard it at the Bristol show on the end of a Yamaha electric organ and was quite impressed. It seems to be a "real" subwoofer at a budget price.

    I had a Pro50 on demo at home with a REL Q150.
    To be honest it sounded ok..... until I plugged in the Rel. It's seams to be ok at very low frequencies but not very good at the slightly higher ones. It will make the floor vibrate and not alot else. I think you are better of saving your money and getting the better Rel (make sure you don't get the humming version - see thread). HIFIBITZ sell Q150's for £440 - I suggest demoing the Pro 50 vs something else before you spend your £300.

    It's much better with movies (ok) than music (poor).
