1) What's the worst sounding expensive subwoofer you've ever heard? Let's have the definition of expensive as at least $1000 MSRP.
2) What's the worst price/performance ratio subwoofer you've ever heard? (Please don't say Bose, as we all know about that)
For both the categories, Def Tech SC Ref topped the list for me. It is one of the most bizarre subs in terms of price ($1900), performance (should be called more of a resonator than a sub), -3dB point close to 40Hz i.e. measured an inch from the center of cone
One thing I can safely and confidently say about Def Tech company as a whole is either they post false reviews themselves as regards their subwoofer lineup OR the buyers have never heard any quality sub ever in their life. But knowing how grossly Def Tech lies about specs esp for subwoofers; I think the former is 100% true.
