My 7370A arrived today in a wooden crate. How do you go about opening the crate and removing the subwoofer with out damaging the subwoofer or the crate?

Regards,
Nicholas

Hi,

Thank you for your question. You should be able to locate two metal lips (sort of like hinges) on each side of the box (both top and bottom so a total of 16 lips). You should pry them open for example with a screw driver. After that, you can lift up the lid and/or the middle section. Subwoofer will be laying on the bottom part.

Hey Nicholas,

You’re one of the first in the world to hear this subwoofer. What are your impressions?

Yes, it makes a pair of 8351As go louder and deeper, but what else? There are still not a single test or user review to be found anywhere on the net. Does it affect punch, rhythm, cohesiveness, distortion, clarity etc.?

The right page to use for sharing your impressions might be this one viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2358

I've not listened to it yet. It's very heavy and I'm waiting for my wife to help me move it into the music room. It is currently sitting on the use of the shipping crate, near the front door where the very nice chap form FedEx left it.

Also need an additional AES cable that won't arrive until next week.

Also need to adjust the height of the stands the 8351 are on.

So may have initial impressions late next week.
