Inphase USW10 Ultra Compact Active Subwoofer
Inphase USW10 Ultra Compact Active Subwoofer
Offered by CarAudioCentre
Price: £144.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad... easy to install, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't really improve on the reviews below. Only thing I will point out is the instructions show different connections to the high level input than the wiring loom provided.
The wiring loom has a left and right high level cable, where as the instructions just say to use one pair.
I connected both anyway and it worked fine.
Good output, but if you wind it up to 100%, it does get a little 'boomy'. Good power however for its size.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this to replace AP Elements 7. It basically does the same thing.
Have found however it is HUGELY processor hungry. I used to edit on my laptop, but this version is just way too hungry for that.
The preview barely plays at all.
Had to move it all over to my powerful gaming PC where I have enough power to run it (and even then... it struggles).

1.0 out of 5 stars Broke within a day, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well it arrived quickly, worked for about a hour then disconnected.
An hour later, the ipod plug fell off it. Rubbish quality.
Asked seller for a new one and got 2/3 word replies but never got a replacement.
Ended up having to claim money back through Amazon.

Avoid!

Amazed at the quality of this item for the cost.

Well its cheap and to my surprise... damn good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ha wow .... lasted a day, 6 Oct 2013

Well sprayed it over my newly cleaned CCTV cameras, all around them and on the walls behind.
Just over a day later and there are spiders webs back all over the cameras.
TOTAL waste of money

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing effort Lego!, 28 Jan 2013
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my 13 year old son.
Opened the box - that is covered with pictures of various robots you can build.
Not one instruction on how to build any of them. Just a basic little module for 'testing' the system.
The instructions for the pictures all over the box are available online, but we don't have a computer in our living room... so what good is that.
For £250... I expect an instruction book.

Plus, its all just thrown in the box in plastic bags and a couple of boxes. No plastic vacuum formed tray or anything.
So once you have opened the bags of very small pieces, you have nothing to keep them in.
We ended up going out and buying a plastic box to store it all in, and another book of other things to build.

Certainly not worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 6 April 2012
Well that was a waste of a lump of money.

Scrolling is terrible. Either doesn't pick up your finger (even after re-calibration) or selects a random item you brushed over on the screen, rather than scroll.
Selection should have been double tap. You spend more time pressing the 'back' button than anything else.
If you turn the car off, but leave the unit playing music, then when you restart the car, it will lose the Ipod.
Only fix is to open the glovebox and get the Ipod (or where ever you have put it) and unplug - replug. Then it finds is again.
Crashes the Ipod when in video mode more often than not (tried other Ipods too). You have to re-boot the Ipod.
Type in a whole address (why is there no city centre function? - my basic Nissan had that) and then if you accidently touch the 'SCROLL' button instead of the 'OK' button (right next to each other) - you lose the whole address and have to start again.
Drag 'n' drop is awful. Took 20 minutes to drag icons to the setup screen (gave up in the end and got someone else to try). It just kept dropping them.
Voice recognition is useless. Just given up with that.
Written to Pioneer many times and called them again and again to see if they are planning a fix/update. Not bothered replying.

Go for a different make, this one is a dud.
