For his article the author Tyler Stripko has received a pair of S.9 Sumiko Subwoofer, carefully set up by Allan Haggar, Brand Manager for Sumiko Subwoofers and Mike Russo, Regional Sales Manager for Fine Sounds Group.

Designed is referred to as elegant, detached from the “boring box” shapes of traditional subwoofers; the test has been made with a home theatre system of property and with a setup composed by a 5.2 system of Sonus faber Olympica (Olympica III for the front, Olympica Center and Olympica I for the surrounding).

In both cases the timbre and sound quality are reported as stunning: in the Symphonic Dances by Rachmaninoff they were able to listen to the single strokes on the snare drum, and every beat was enphasized by its own reverberation. 

Tyler Stripko wanted to test the two S.9 also in a multi-channel system, by playing a Linkin Park Audio-DVD of the Reanimation Live. Here his comment:
"The bass was incredibly tight and delineated. With a second sub in the mix bass depth increased nicely as well. While I always knew that having multiple subwoofers is almost always better than having just one, I had never experienced it in my listening room until now."

According to the author, getting to know the Sumiko Subwoofers is “a revelation”; despite the initial difficulty in the installation and integration, the product is pleasing from every point of view: from the design, to the sound and power.
