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...

Hey folks, this is my current setup with dual LV12Rs along with all Ascend Acoustics speakers. They're tied into a Denon X4300H with the newest firmware, and I've only been able to do a test run on all default settings. I mentioned this in the owners thread for the 4300, but found this thread after the fact. I realize I need to run Audyssey to get things lined up, but out of the box, there was almost zero bass when playing a movie or music. I have the recommended settings on that came with the subs (low extension for HT and volume at around 12-1 o'clock). Others have commented there that post Audyssey these were great, but I was still surprise how muted these are at default settings. Any recommendations (besides the blu-ray.com blog) specifically for getting the most out of these subs?

What are the default settings? Are the speakers set to small, if so, what crossover? Is the sub turned on in the default settings?

All speakers set to small and xo at 80. Subs are on, the first power on run for the Denon played test tunes out of both subs. They DO make sound, but I have to stick my ear up to the grille to hear it. I've made arrangements to borrow a tripod on my way home tonight, hopefully Audyssey will be all that I need....

Thanks for the input. The only thing I have to suggest is to turn up the volume on the sub to a level where you like. I had mine set right at the middle setting before getting a new AVR with Audyssey. The AVR asked to set the baseline volume for the sub and I think turned it down several notches, like 25% above min. After running sweeps, the level was set to 0db in the AVR, but then I turned up the volume 2 notches on the sub.

So I've been stoked for and waiting on the F18 for ages since the ported options are the size of a small refrigerator. I excitedly ordered an F18 from Rythmik over ten days ago and have left them an e-mail and voicemail hoping to hear when it will ship out but it's been radio silence since then. My credit card was charged on the 14th and it's now the 25th with no response back from them nor any e-mail about a shipment or tracking number. These guys are pretty well regarded on this forum, but I'm getting a little impatient here. Enrico? Brian? An update would be great since you have described these things as available and ready to ship.

Jordan, sorry for the delay. I just spoke with Brian and he said that it's his fault and he asked me to apologize to you in his name. We need to perform a FR test on every amplifier we get out and the F18 being a new model takes a little bit longer because we need to put all the data in the system to perform the FR test and this is for every single amplifier. Brian is finishing the testing today so you subwoofer will go out tomorrow and you will get it by Friday.

I mentioned this in the owners thread for the 4300, but found this thread after the fact. I realize I need to run Audyssey to get things lined up, but out of the box, there was almost zero bass when playing a movie or music. I have the recommended settings on that came with the subs (low extension for HT and volume at around 12-1 o'clock). Others have commented there that post Audyssey these were great, but I was still surprise how muted these are at default settings. Any recommendations (besides the blu-ray.com blog) specifically for getting the most out of these subs?

You need to level match the subs and the speakers. The 12 o'clock setting may be completely wrong. If you don't have a sound level meter which enables you to do this on your own, Audyssey will walk you through the level matching as one of the first steps.

Don't suffer through Gamma D on your JVC. Optimize HDR Tone Mapping using Arve's tool & Masciola's test patterns instead (hints.)

The LFE/Bass energy in Star Trek Discovery is awesome. I was listening to the DD+ 5.1 track on Netflix.

What does the green and red lines represent in the graphs?


Green
= Peak db (Loudness) at that given frequency
RED = Average db (Loudness) at that given frequency


Star Trek: Discovery Graph's

A nice amount of 20hz and 30hz bass
