I bought this sub to replace my Mackie that started having problems cutting out on me during performances. So far, I have only used it once and that was in a fairly large room with a capacity of 1,000 people. It sounded fantastic. It was a diverse audience and through a 6 hour night I played laid back dinner music during the cocktail mingle hour. They had a western theme so I played some cowboy songs during dinner. During the night I played everything from old rock & roll, disco, country, line dances, modern pop music, and some hip hop with some pretty heavy bass. I never pushed the volume over half way. I don't think there's much this sub can't handle unless you're playing a very large concert venue for thousands of people.
