My apartment is on the ground floor of an apartment complex that was built many decades ago so the main side dividing walls are substantial in thickness. I say this because you might tick off your neighbors if you set your loudness levels too high.
P.S. If you haven't listened to the Pioneer tower speakers by all means do, and at $127 each they are a steal. mine are hooked up to a 100 amp per channel receiver and if you are not careful you will blow your house down, but clarity of sound and not volume is what should sell and these possess that quality. Sure they are not the best but you won't be broke when it comes time to pay the rent.
I would NOT recommend using the variable crossover (it is getting loose on mine, and I have to keep turning it back and forth to get it to work). To me though, it's useless anyways, I never use it. The volume control works perfectly though, and I use that regularly.
The only thing it lacks is midbass, but my room's resonance frequency is 50hz, so it is enhanced at 50hz, but that is because of my room. It is equalized fairly well, and can actually take a lot of abuse.
You MAY hear the wiring or port rattle inside the sub. To fix this, just unscrew the 8 screws holding the speaker in, and tape it to the walls of the sub box, and it should work fine. It's not very noticeable though, and once you fix it, it should be fine.
Also, you can BARELY hear some sublag (this is when the speaker has to work its way up to the full potential, and can affect the quality). It is not very noticeable to me, but I have a very tuned ear, as I listen to music ALL the time.
Don't let the last two comments scare you though, this sub is WORTH EVERY PENNY!
I was a little apprehensive because it isn't one of the big-name speakers some people would say you must buy to have a home theater which is even tolerable. I had no opportunity to hear it but my instincts paid off. I am very pleased with the purchase. The sub does it's job well in a 14 x 16 room with 9-foot ceilings. I matched it with a set of Energy Take Classic 5.0 speakers which were also SUPER cheap. I selected them based upon a CNET review and because they fit into my budget. Everything is connected to an Onkyo TX-NR616 AVR. I guess I thought if I went cheap on the speakers, I could upgrade later if I was unhappy. So far I'm not...
I did not and cannot compare this sub to other makes, models and sizes of sub-woofers. In fact, this is the first sub I've ever owned. I can tell you that after I set everything up and let the receiver calibrate for the room, I have been very happy with the result. Movies are great. This sub has plenty of power. We did get a bit carried away with the volume while playing Call of Duty one evening. My wife said the explosions could be 'felt' in other parts of the house and asked us to turn it down. She was on the second floor while we were in the basement.
