Well that really sucks. I've been a member of Ebay since Dec '00 and I don't recall ever receiving a coupon.

I'm not sold at 9% cashback. An additional 10% would have sealed it though.

The auction listing for the sub says the price will be going up. Anybody believe that?

Does anyone have the PA-120 in cherry and Polk Lsi 9's in cherry? I was wondering how close the finish is to each other. If its close I would get the cherry finish, if not I would be fine getting the black.

Well I was looking for another sub to add to the two Diy ones that I have so I wen't with the live search discount and ordered the 120 today. I got the one in cherry. Hopefully it will intergrate with my other subs nicely.

I got one but didn't see it until today and it expired on the 16th at 11:59pm. with 19% off i probably would have bought this sub.

$229 on Ebay. Just go to Ebay and type PA-120 in the search. They have the PA-120 in black and cherry.

I dont think so the sub has 1 input then 1 output to goto another sub if you want to have more than 1.. I used a single cable male/male

Go to live.com and search for xbox. Click on the 10% link..this takes you to eBay. In the eBay search box, enter PA-120 and that will take you where you need to go. Make sure the 10% cashback logo appears on your order before final purchase.

I've got 2 and love them. Both in the front corners of the room...evens it out. Even though it sounded great with only one, now I think it's better. Bought the 2nd one for $200 so both for $429 was good for me.

Hi does anyone know how this sub would compare to a JBL PB12. I've had the PB12 for 6yrs without any problems and I think is sounds great but I changed my speakers to cherry and wanted a sub(or two)to match. Also if anyone has a PA-120 in cherry could you please post some pics thanks.

1) As soon as you have your tracking number from UPS, you call UPS and tell them you wish to self broker your package. While on the phone, get the local UPS depot address and business hours.

2) When the package arrives, they will call you (usually not) so check the website often on delivery status to the depot. Drive to the UPS depot and tell them you are here to pick-up your package that you will self-broker. They will give you a few forms that you must now take with you to the Canadian customs office - they should be able to give you directions, my UPS has maps printed! 3) Arrive at customs office, present your papers and pay duties/taxes. Drive back to UPS, give your paperwork in and get your box.

The box fits in the back seat of most compact cars.

Oh ya... go home, plug in and enjoy!

my wife got a coupon from ebay for 9% and i was trying to use the live 10% but when i get to the final page before i commit to buy there is no place to enter the ebay coupon. it shows the 22$ i will get back from live search but shouldn't there be a space to enter the ebay coupon? or is it on the next page? I am afraid to commit to buy.

This sub has really drawn my curiosity. I just bought some energy speakers (c300/cc50/cr100) and got a esw-10. Now I won't be hooking all this for about a month or so (need to build a new TV stand) so I can't get a feel for the esw10, but this is my first surround sound system so I will be going from no sub to a sub. So I'm sure it will sound pretty good to me as I have never had a sub before. I am tossing it around to purchase this sub since it's a great price right now. Not sure what to do
