Hey, based on the reviews, I would be interested in purchasing a Lava sub, without hesitation.
I do not pay much attention to graphs either, unless the are registering unacceptable curves. I have not done this neither do I understand it.
Never have I been disappointed in purchasing an item when there have been favorable reviews. I am also fortunate to have some friends who's knowledge I depend on in making audio decisions.
And, you guys have done some comparisons and with a few other reviews, I would be sold, if #1 the price was right....#2 the look was....and the performance....I know very little of subs, so, I have to trust others. I know the biggies....SVS, Rythmik, HSU and other audiophile household names.
And, at the time when I upgrade my home theater these would apply. For now with my little WAF-1s for 2 channel in the PC room, a small inexpensive high quality sub would do just fine. The name brand biggies @ 1K+ would be too much for these little gems. I may only need an 8" or 10" rather than the 12".
