Rythmic vs Outlaw subs...
Two subs under strong consideration for a 14 x 22 foot theater room (8 foot ceilings). A second sub will be purchased not too far down the road, so I am looking at 12 inch subs:
1. RTHYMICS LV12R Direct Servo subwoofer- rear ported, 300 wats and suppose to hit clean down to 20 hz. $599.00 shipped
2. Outlaw LFM-1 EX Subwoofer 12 inch 350 watt, down firing with dual ports. Also suppose to hit a clean 20 hz $649.00, shipped
Opinions? I own the EMptek10i10i, a good sub, but it has been discontinue and isn't capable of 20hz on its best day. Very good, accurate sub, however. I have compared this sub to the Klipsch 12wd, and the SVS Pb1000 and the EMP was, IMHO, the equal or better sub in both challenges (kicked the Klipsch to the street and at least, was every bit as good as the SVS). Thoughts? I haven't heard subs from HSU, or Reaction Audio, the other often mentioned budget subs that can kick it!
