Wondering if this sub complements well the system from another thread. Any input will be appreciated.

For one your DAC don't have the RCA type connector for sub. I guess you could buy and 3.5mm to one RCA cable.

35 Hz isn't very impressive, but might be as good as it gets for $280 although I'm sure at the $500+ MSRP, this thing could be put to shame rather easily. Not much in the way of reviews it seems and Mission isn't really known for their subwoofers but that doesn't mean that it isn't good necessarily.

For an extra $20, the Klipsch R-100SW goes a little lower, is well reviewed, and has a 5 year warranty rather than the 2 year Mission warranty.

Thanks OP, I have been eyeing this sub and this deal is hard to beat, bought one! I am a big fan of English speakers and have had Mission speakers in the past. I have the 'sister' sub from Wharfedale and have been very happy with it.

I agree that the Klipsch is a worthy competitor in this price range, but a big difference is that the Mission is a sealed box vs. a ported box for the Klipsch. Simply a matter of personal preference, but I prefer sealed. Pros and cons to both, but something to consider.

I’m wondering if this is a worthy addition to the twin Polk a7 setup I have.

Bought one from BB and it arrived dead.
Not saying it's an indication of anything in particular, but I have decided to return and not repurchase this model.

What're the pros and cons? Would sealed be better in a smaller/shared space? (condo livingroom?)

Generally, sealed subs are thought to be tighter and better for music while ported is better for shaking the walls with explosions for movies and whatnot. Sealed subs are usually smaller too.

In my experience, sealed subs are easier to place, ported subs are more fussy with room placement. Sealed subs bass response rolls off more slowly, which means deeper bass, albeit at lower levels. Sealed subs respond better to equalizing for this reason. Ported subs are more efficient, so need less power to play louder. I have found that sealed subs are easier to integrate with your main speakers.

These are generalizations though, it is more complicated than that.

Hmm, with a smaller/shared space it would depend more on where you place it, as well as phase (which you can select on the sub). Even moving them a couple of feet here or there can make a big difference. Sealed subs are a little easier to work with.

I hope that helps you out, I don't think there is a simple answer, sorry!

It does help, thanks! Anything to keep the condo neighbours from killing me. A sealed sub and an SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System(old RFD deal) might do it.
