Well said. I completely agree.

Sometimes I feel like buying a B&M Sub and compare it at home with the ID subs and see the difference. if the ID sub is better, I wil have the option to return the B&M sub. If not, then we at-least solve our curiosity.

I think I made a good decision but was it the most informed one? Hardly. The shipping charges on the sub were a real sore spot with me. Just add the shipping into the price like everyone else does so there is a better apples to apples comparison on price at least.

Internet Direct companies allow the consumer to get more bang for their buck but the model also allows way too much static and misinformation to enter into the sub research process. The lack of a place to go and actually audition any of these subs really puts a buying decision in limbo. I guess if you live in one of those cities where the ID subs are made you can go and listen for yourself but 99.9% of us don't.

We see one review on a sub and it's the greatest thing ever and then it's reviewed by the next company and the sub has major shortcomings. Supposidly all of these 'professionals' all look for the same thing from the subs.

Yeah, there is a 30 day return on most of them but who really wants to go through paying a huge shipping return fee and lug those huge things around again if they aren't broken.
