Almost all reviewers are convinced that the Mackie MR10Smk3 is an excellent subwoofer for the price. And since it is within the entry level price range, most of the reviews came from first time subwoofer users who were very satisfied with the big difference that this subwoofer made to their monitoring experience.
There weren't that many complaints from users, but there were a few users who reported having repair and replacement issues a little earlier than expected.
