Great sub!! Infinty rocks!!
I auditioned the PS-8 and PS-12 (300W) side by side and my personal preference for music was the PS-8. I found the bass notes to be a little crisper and faster. The PS-12 seemed a little muddy with music although some of the low drum and really low sounds where more pronounced. Both of the subs are great, but I was surprised that in the end I preferred the PS-8. Great sub at a great price.
Man, I have been buying and selling speakers and subs for several years now trying to find the "right ones". I bought this little sub for my bedroom with a pair of mirage omnisats thinking it would be great for a small room, make a long story longer, I had a 12" 650w in my livingroom with polk monitor 40's. I now have the infinty PS8 and mirage in my livingroom. Now I'm not saying the 12" and polk didn't sound great, if anything I'm just saying this sub is truly a great sub. It sounds much bigger than one would think. I also had a pair of infinty primus 150's with it for a while and that sounded great as well. I switched to the mirage purely because of the sound detail. However the 150's have better mids than the mirage and they are a great buy now.<BR><BR>So if you are looking for a great sub for small money do not hesitate, you won't be let down, I wasn't and I was very picky. My thoughts are that I don't mind spending the money as long as you get what you want and you're happy. I paid $500 for the 12" sub and paid $250 for the infinity sub, i can say the 12" wasn't worth twice as much. pound for pound I'd take the PS8 all day. Also for you kids on a budget, you don't need a $1500+ receiver to push your sound, a good $250-$500 receiver will put smiles on your face. I sold my pioneer receiver for this very reason. Just don't use a receiver that your dad had in the shed for 15 years. Good luck
I just received my PS 8 subwoofer from Crutchfield. I added it to a pair of Infinity Primus 160 speakers and an Onkyo TX-SR 503 receiver. The new sub definately adds a dimension to the music. I'm hearing parts of songs that I never knew before. However, this sub does not go as low as others I have heard. It does not create sounds that will make the walls shake, or that you will feel in your tummy. It generates dull booms and thuds that are good for movie soundtracks or video games, but it is not good at recreating the sounds of musical instruments. The sound is fairly <BR>distorted and it does not really sound like a double bass or even a drum. <BR><BR>I'm still saving up for my dream stereo, which will have a 12 inch Velodyne subwoofer. In the meantime, the PS 8 is good enough, especially since I live in an apartment and don't want to annoy the neighbors.
It's probably true that you're not going to shake the walls of your neighbors house with this, but it does a surprising job for its size. My living room is 15' x 27' with cathedrial ceilings that are 9' at the wall and 13' at the peak. The living room has a ceiling high, 13' wide, "T" connection to another room which has the same ceiling and is 13' x 32' and I have no trouble filling the entire area with all the volumn I want (the rest of my system is a Primus C25 center flanked with 160s and 150s for rears).
I bought this subwoofer along with Bose 301 front speakers, Infinity 150 rears, Infinity center, Onkyo receiver. Got a very nice discount. Buying this subwoofer gave me additional % off on other speakers <b>[Editor's note: limited-time offer]</b>. And this subwoofer is plenty for my surround. Love it!<BR>It complements everything very well.
I've owned this for about 6 months now. It is amazing how mych sound this dub can produce. Very clean also, no distortion.

Metal Matrix Diaphragm (M.M.D.): Derived from the C.M.M.D. material used in Infinity's flagship Prelude drivers, M.M.D. features a stiff aluminum core that provides exceptional strength and rigidity for clean, realistic low-frequency tones.
Amplifier: The 8" M.M.D. front-firing cone woofer is powered by a 100-watt (RMS) amplifier.
Surround: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses a rubber surround.
Bass Ports: There are two rear-firing bass ports that allow deep bass with high acoustic efficiency and low distortion.
Gain Control: The subwoofer has a rotary control on the rear panel for adjusting the level of the bass.
Phase Switch: The subwoofer's phase switch allows you to control the phase of the subwoofer's output relative to the front speakers. If the bass sounds muddy or unclear, toggling the phase control can sometimes strengthen the bass "attack."
Auto On/Off Circuit: The auto on/off circuit turns the power amp on when a signal is sensed and turns the amplifier off and into standby mode approximately 10 minutes after a signal is no longer received. An LED indicator on the rear panel glows green when the amplifier is on and red when the amp is in standby.
Low-Pass Crossover: The subwoofer features a continuously variable 50Hz-150Hz low-pass crossover that determines the highest frequency at which the subwoofer reproduces sounds. The crossover has a 24dB/octave slope.
Line-level Inputs: The subwoofer has a gold-plated LFE input and gold-plated stereo RCA inputs. If you have a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver or processor with a low-frequency-effects (LFE) output, you should use the LFE input on the subwoofer. If your receiver/processor does not contain a Dolby Digital or DTS processor but has a subwoofer output, you must use the stereo RCA inputs. If the receiver/processor has a mono subwoofer output, a "Y" adapter is recommended to maximize performance.
Speaker-level Inputs: The left and right gold-plated 5-way binding posts allow you to connect the subwoofer to a receiver/amplifier using speaker wire.
