This sounds sketchy to me. Amazon and Sears both sell this sub, at http://www.amazon.com/Surround-Theater-Powered-Active-Subwoofer/dp/B007NZKNVQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1358353638&sr=1-1&keywords=new+black+sub15f

And I can't find the sub on theater solution's website, or anything other than Amazon's reviews on the sub, which are less than technical. Does anyone know about this sub? This seems awful cheap.

Also, I saw a deal on the Cadence CSX-12 ii a few months back on Newegg, for $200. Does anyone know if that was a good deal? I passed on it since I hadn't done my homework at the time. Reviews on the CSX-12 seem to be generally positive, at it's $400 price point.

Thanks!

I forgot to add this link, from the onlyfactorydirect page. I can't find anything else on it.

Those subs remind me of the discontiued entry level subs from acoustic audio. As for the Cadence CSX12, I think $200 is a great price for it. Its a bit overpriced at $400 IMO

Thanks for the opinion! Also - I noticed it is $280 on cadence's website now, but $400 everywhere else.

Theater Solutions subwoofers are essentially worthless. Beating on a garbage can with a stick would give you more bass. I did a review of one that you can read here, if you're interested. The CSX-12 is definitely better. Still a budget sub, but a far better one. I also reviewed one of those, which can be found here. For $279 it's a good deal.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite
