Does this mean you auditioned all of them or you just looked at the published numbers and stats like I have been doing for the last 6 weeks?
I just researched them online, reading professional reviews, customer reviews, and starting some threads here on AVS.
Ultimately, the direct servo and 19Hz extension of the LV12R appealed to me, plus having way more output than I will ever use (meaning I won't need to push it like with some smaller subs, especially sealed ones) with movies that have ample, loud low bass.
After getting it, I was not only fully satisfied with those attributes, but also, the damping control and LPF slope control, which lets me adjust the SQ of this sub to my tastes and the latter because it can allow more seamless integration with my speakers.
More than anything else, the SQ of these subs are like nothing else comparable and that's why Rythmik subs pair up nicely with just about any speakers on the market.
I'm sure the other brands of sub are also great, but having experienced the Rythmik vs. other similarly priced subs at some local electronic stores, I strongly feel my Rythmik is better.
