I've been looking Randy. Right now if the deal falls through with eD I'm looking at an SVS cylinder sub, most likely the PC12-NSD. It's right around the same cost and should be similar in performance to what the A3-300 was.

Has anyone tried a Rhythmik sub? haven't seen much in the way of reviews on them.

It shouldn't be too hard for someone to build a sub that could obliterate all its rivials in a contest like this. But that just isn't a practical course of action and what commercial retailers vie for which explains why some opted out. Since Gene established some fixed parameters and limits they're coming back into the fold...so to speak. I, for one, am very excited for the results because the fw12.x is sorta like my sub only on Roids...jk. grin

Regards, Bill

SPL is one of the easiest things to design into a sub system. Being able to accurately reproduce those same SPL levels with quality, accuracy and consistency is the challenging part of engineering. I hope that is a major part of the shootout otherwise I wouldn't have an interest.

If you are going to drop up to 4 grand on subs, it was stated that the products are on track to be tested in October and the results published sometime in Nov/Dec if you want 3rd party information on these products. There are also a few recent entries from SVS and Salk Sound.

On a separate note there is an individual that owns the PB-13 and is going to buy an EP800 and would like to compare the two.

I don't believe that to be the case as the RBH 1010-SEN uses dual 10"...I could be wrong and even if that were the case, I'm sure Gene would have welcomed Axiom ep600. IMO it still begs the question why!
