They do not look as nice as the sub 25 but if you could trade them in for the sub 15 it would be a much better speaker.
Hmmm I wonder if the driver from the sub 15 is the same size and if so if it would work in the 25?

It might not be the driver that is the problem, from what I can figure out I think it was the limiter that was inside of the electronics. One pushing the sub hard, it would go past the limiter and make the speaker rattle. My friend had to sub 15's and since that was a newer speaker it never had that rattle. So I think the problem is with the electronics and that's why they stop making them because I could never fix that problem.

There's a Sub25 for sale on Ebay right now... a 7 year old used sub... that went for $3999 brand new without factoring in the 20%+ discounts people got on them back in 2009-2010...

For $4,800 OBO XD XD

When I emailed the seller they got all snippy at me... like how dare I ask why you are selling a 7 year old used sub for OVER brand new retail back in the day... LOL.

Worth about $2,000 now.
