You know I saw another picture of this sub from the top and I was wondering if it has a glass top of some sort! As I said in my other thread, I ordered the EX and looking forward to taking delivery!!

I think you have to pay shipping on the Plus $549 price, so why pay more for a sub that has a little less performance?

I agree with this 100%. If you're not specifically looking for a smaller sized sub; there is no reason you should pay more for a Plus.

On a side note; I've already seen at least three people who were stuck in the Outlaw vs Rythmik conundrum who pulled the trigger on the EX because of the sale. I guess the sale killed a few of Rythmik's sales.

What's ironic is that so many people get caught up in the nuances of which sounds better for music for a mixed HT/music setup, when they've never heard any subs with the sound quality of the 12" ID subs regularly discussed here. 95% of those people would be very happy with any of the ID subs. Then the EX goes on sale, and all that discussion becomes pretty moot since at $549 shipped, nothing else makes sense any more

Couldn't have said it better myself.
