You will see some comprehensive measurements pretty soon from a credible 3rd party. Its one of the subs that will be featured in Audioholics subwoofer shootout.

Its looks like a REALLY promising product from HSU and priced right as well.

That's a nice looking sub, having owned a few Hsu subs I bet it will be a nice performer as well.

Dr. Hsu makes a good subwoofer. That and the Epik look like great subwoofer values.

To me all the value is lost when you factor in shipping costs to Canada.

Yes, I like the looks of the Epiks, but the shipping is not trivial. $79 for the Legend and $139 for the Empire to WA. Ouch.

Shipping was one reason I didn't go with Epik, even though they are just north of here about 60 miles it would have coast $79. Pick up wasn't an option either as they are not open on the weekends.

I'm curious to see how it will perform during the shootout against the competition. I would have really liked to see the Epik Empire and the ED A5-350 at the shootout as well as these 2 subs always come up on the internet when looking for great subs in this price range. Too bad. I hope the new HSU will become one of these "great value for the money".

Looks nice. I love my EP800s, but I'm still always curious about all of these other brands of subwoofers.
