Nothing against Audioholics, but it's not exactly shaping up to be the "Ultimate Subwoofer Shootout" without representation from Hsu, SVS, Velodyn, Paradigm, Epik, Axiom and Outlaw.

Not exactly the household names or the usual recommended companies, but that is not to say their products are inferior or the testing is pointless because of it. In fact most likely they will be not. Most of the companies you mentioned (the big names) it seems where on the initial asking list and they declined for whatever reason.

Like I said, nothing against Audioholics if many are choosing not to participate.... though I think I would have nailed down the participants before announcing the "Ultimate Subwoofer Shootout" to ensure that it would actually be so.

Or a reasonable facsimile! smile

It isn't exactly the initial list but there are some interesting companies notably Funky Waves and a few new subwoofers that have yet to be released will be tested. Should be interesting.

I'm glad to see the 5 names on that list are not your usual suspects!

Agreed Billy. It is interesting that the established brands are not interested.

The inclusion of Funky Waves is really cool because he uses excellent drivers from the DIY world.

Looks like the typical article in the Audio magazines that I've pre-viewed recently. A bunch of nothing about stuff I'm not in the slightest interested in. So I didn't spend my money on any of them.

Not only excellent drivers, some of the best quality subwoofer drivers in the world. The driver itself can cost more than some commercial subs.

Well, I've owned an SVS...albeit it was only a pb10 but my custom sub built by Funkywaves is head and shoulders above it or the pb12 for that matter. It was designed using the AE av12x because I was looking for a ported sub with on board amp for easy plug and play...but for his higher end subs he only uses the best materials available (ie: LMS-drivers) & baltic birch ply for his enclosures because its ligher but stronger than MDF and in the long run it cost less to ship. Let's not forget being Canadian....Outlaw, Hsu and Epik just to name a few aren't that easy an option for us.

Regards, Bill....

Lets see a picture of this bad boy! grin

If I may ask, is the custom sub you have similar in price to the SVS models; either the pb10 or pb12.

I only wonder about the resonance of Baltic Birch over MDF, but with the way he braces everything it most likely isn't a factor.
