The F18 is in stock and ready to ship. Price for black oak and black matte is $1530 shipped and piano black is $1750 shipped. Silver cone upgrade is available for $100. Brian will post specifications in our website as soon as he can.

PS: Josh Ricci is in possession of the F18 and testing should be done first week of October.

Damn. I bet that 18"er is bad a$$. I didn't know it was an option when I pulled the trigger on my 15"er a few weeks ago, although I am not sure the big daddy would fit where I need it to fit.

Nice! I am really looking forward to your new models and I hope your homepage will soon be updated, as well [I read you are working on it; it just is a pain finding the required information by scrolling trough this thread...]. Some other questions:

What made you develop a dual opposed drivers enclosure, as well? As far as I know, Brian was/is not a big fan of this.

Would you be able to publish standardized anechoic measurements of your subwoofers, incl. THD+N?

Furthermore, is there any chance to find an AES3_AES/EBU input + pass through on future amplifiers? This would come in handy, e.g., with some digital [multichannel] room correction devices.



Thank you!

Is there a picture of the F18? It's sealed right? Not bad for less than $200 more than the FV15HP!

But it's over $100 more than the F25. I would think the F25 would have the edge in overall output.

The F25 is 1.5dB louder than the F18 but the F18 is more room friendly. Also, a single F25 is $1683 with shipping and lift gate service because it ships via UPS Freight. The F18 is $1530 shipped and it ships via UPS Ground so no lift gate service is necessary. Also the F18 comes in the three finishes while the F25 only in black oak.

You don't have to have lift gate service which adds $200 to the cost.

As for room friendly the F25 is narrower and in my case would fit better. Alas, shipping to Hawaii seems to be $600 plus. So SVS is my only good choice. Though a pair of F25s would be my first choice if it weren't for the shipping.

Lift gate service is $100 and yes, it's optional but if you don't pay lift gate service to UPS you are responsable for getting the 180 lb subwoofer out of the freight truck. When you don't pay lift gate, UPS assume you have a lift or you have a dock. Another option to save the $100 lift gate service is going to pick the subwoofer up at the UPS Freight Center.

Spectacular

Just have to comment that the closing scenes of Wonder Women rocking four F15HPs is pretty spectacular.

Your photo is brilliant -- and I would definitely need a "Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader" -- like the one used by Lt. Ellen Ripley -- if I wanted to move an FV28HP around in my home.

Enrico, I see that you are using your Rythmik L22 as the subwoofer in your desktop audio system. I live in a "studio cottage", that is, the entire living space is a single 14'x17' room with an open floor plan (except for the bathroom and a walk-in closet, which are on one side of the main room). The main room is about 2500 cubic feet, though I should probably include the bathroom and closet in my calculations as well, since the doors to these rooms are always open when I am using my "home theater". All these spaces added together bring the total to about 3400 cubic feet. This cottage was newly built from the foundation up with 6" exterior walls, and it conforms to current California earthquake regulations, so it is very solid, tight, and quiet.

I'd like to invest in a subwoofer (or two). I listen mostly to classical music and pipe organ. I would be using the sub for movies, as well, but I'm not trying to achieve monster bass in that application. Basically, I'm interested in adding a subwoofer to my audio system as an augment to my four Paradigm Reference Active 40 loudspeakers. These speakers have fairly decent bass response, but I figure they could perform better overall if I had a subwoofer to handle the lowest octaves of sound.

From your experience with the Rythmik L22 subwoofer, do you think that a single L22 would be sufficient for my 3400 cubic foot studio home? I have about four possible spots where I could place the sub within the room, and the first arrangement I would like to try is a horizontal orientation directly below my TV in a near-field listening position. [Note: the subwoofer would be on its own base, so it won't be in contact with the TV mount or any other components.]

I am very interested in Rythmik's L22 subwoofer because its compact footprint provides me with several placement options in my small house, and its excellent performance combined with its affordable price make it a really great value.

I could also see myself investing in a second L22 sub if it was required for this room, though I'm hoping that just one of these subs will be enough for my needs. Any advice would be genuinely appreciated...
