As you all know I have suggested some folks looking for a sub and on a budget to take a look at the eD line of subs. After someone had made a comment on how bad the finished looked in pics he had seen I decided to give one a shot myself. Here I was recommending them with out ever hearing one myself.

I received the A3-300 ($550 shipped on sale) this past week with almost a months wait after ordering. It was no big deal as I still have my Hsu STF-3 on hand.

The first thing I did after set up and calibrating it was to play a bit of music. One disc in particular that impressed me with some fairly deep bass was NickelBacks "All The Right Reasons". On track two of that disc there is some pretty good bass notes. Now I'm pretty familiar with this song when the Hsu is in the mix. When the eD played this track there was no doubt it went lower and hit with more authority than my beloved Hsu did.

Yes fellows it was in the same exact spot that the other sub had been. Didn't want one to have any advantages over the other.

Just a couple weeks back I rented the movie 9. The first time I watched this movie it was with the Hsu in the mix. The movies sound track was very impressive with all the loud and low bass notes that shook the couch. The Hsu did a really good job with everything that the movie threw at it.

Of course when I got the eD I had to check out this movie again. I tell ya guys it was like watching it all over again. There were times I was like holy **** this things going to blow up or self destruct with what was coming out of it. I can't say I was quite prepared for what the eD did with this movie.

While the Hsu and eD seem to be pretty equal with most music, both with deep tight bass, the eD set itself apart with movies.

I'm sure this isn't the end all be all of subs; that's a given but for the money it is a hell of a deal.

Those were my few words on the eD fellows.

For anyone that missed the pics.





Here it is next to the Hsu



In it's place.

Interesting, Rick. Did you calibrate the eD to the same level as the Hsu to compensate for a possible difference in sensitivity?

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

That's great to hear about the eD. I may end up with one for my computer setup.
