I know Rythmik's are great for movies too but alot of our subs are great for Movies.
Music is another animal and I find that Rythmik always comes out on top when it comes to music.
No reason they wouldn't come out on top for movies either. The same servo control that makes piano hammer and drum strikes sound clean in music will make movie transients like gunshots or even just footfalls as actors walk down the hall just as clean.

Most regular Joe's are use to unclean distorted bass. Think about it, when you were young Bass to you was turning the bass knob up in your car or home system and club bass. Most people will heard clean bass and say... where is the Bass. I will never forget picking out a system for a friend and him saying he wants clean bass. I took him to a high end audio shop and played two subs for him. One a 15" servo sealed sub and the other a 10" dual radiator small cube. The Servo was super clean and shock the walls and room with <20hz silent music. The other was high distortion and was heard everytime it played somthing. He picked the distortion.

I designed a servo-controlled sub in college because others were not clean enough or cost too much to me. Special case, I was lucky to be around a lot of high-end gear, and had some technical knowledge besides.

A lot of people prefer the distortion because it makes the sub sound louder. They can't really hear 60 Hz, more "feel" it, but they can hear the thump/boom at 120 Hz and figure it's better. Sad.

I am sure my room could be improved but after hours of reading I found that I wasn't the only one with that perception. Great subs, don't get me wrong. For movies, these things performed - period. They served me well for four years, but it was time that we parted ways. They were sold a couple of weeks ago.
As a drummer, I appreciate fast snappy bass. A kick drum should pop with direct focus and attack. I didnt have that with my Ultras.
Being a former drummer myself(still have my Granstar customs, just hardly play anymore) I understand the feeling you had, and that is exactly why I ripped the MFW15 drivers out of my Micro cabinets, and installed Dayton PA460(18") drivers in them.
Tracking bass lines is also much easier.
The low end will be provided by (2) HT18 subs that I still have to build.
I owned a DIY Rythmik sub, it was a great sub....I still own the amp.
csnow and Tiến Seven like this.

Why waste $ on more cheap stuff, it's like challenging a dragon with a pocket knife.

What model of Rythmik sub do you have? I am planning to build a Rythmik sub too. Do you have any pictures of your masterpiece?
