I should also ask that the PM that I may send to anyone not just be sent around randomly.

The correspondance that I had with ED went very well and I wouldn't want to mess that up with rumors and such flying around.

Thanks All

The eD forums say the A7-700 model will be around $1500 delivered, any idea what the cost for that A7-900 beast is going to be?

Dont quote me on this, but I couldnt see it being more than a 300-400 hundred more? I wonder if they could offer this with 2 1k watt amps, 1 for each sub :P That of course would be a tiny bit more hahaha.

but then again, the tech told me they use a A7-700 and it filled their 10k sq. ft warehouse with bass pretty nicely. Cant imagine that or something even bigger in a house...

Since I have been literally slammed with PMs (more today than I've received in 6 mo.) I will let everyone know that the upcoming "gossip" so to speak is that ED will not neccesarily be giving any better deals than they are now.

What has been discussed is expanding the discount to other items. It won't be as much, but it will allow those of us that wanted something other that the A2 to give it a go.

Hopefully those that are on the fence (myself included) will get off and run to the bank. If they go through with it, I bet some on here will be very surprised.

Wait till Monday and we'll see what comes up......

VITOD: Where's that review??????????

I haven't done any below 20hz yet and it's not on a corner. This sub is currently mid wall. But so far very impressive. The next time I'm going to test a corner.

Vitod, do you have any other subwoofers you could compare the A2-300 to? Also, did you notice any decrease in sound between 30Hz, and 20Hz?

Lets get a more in depth review. Accuracy,is it tight, is it boomy, is it clean, does it play all differnt types of music and notes, does it play fast, does it bottom out, does it distort, is there any port noise, does it play loud and with authority?
I am very interested in how this sub performs as I have about $600 to play with right now for a sub purchase and would buy two of them.

Not if someone doesn't say anything about it besides it's impressive. I don't even want one but I keep checking the thread to see if this thing is any good.

Lets hear some dB readings at 50, 40, 30, 20, 18, 15Hz!!!!

I actually have two PA subs coming in either tomorrow or Monday. I am going to purchase an ED as well and compare the two.

And yes, some db numbers would be nice.

Also include other subs you have heard in the same space.

Well Vitod mentioned before that he has 2 SVS subs and has owned various other subs over the course of many years. He is also the one thats stating that its "very impressive" so far. However, he hasnt stated that by "very impressive" that it out performs the other subs. What is everyone wanting to hear? I you wanting to here DB measurements from a RTA 1 meter in front of the port or what? Maybe eD can arrange something?

Jeff, you posted the same statement twice.

Everybody, I'm not a super tech wizard with all these measuring tools to give an intense review. That stuff belongs to Craig. I'm a adverage guy with a love for HT. I just got this thing only 3 days ago and some are not satisfied with the brief review I posted. Was it better if I had said nothing at all? So far I like what I see and hear. I still have to play with various locations, movies, music, sine waves below 20hz, etc. Some here just what instant answers without contributing anything themselves except criticism. If your not happy, then buy one and give us YOUR review! I'd love to see YOUR thoughts!

Hey vitod,

Can we get Frequency..........awh never mind

What I would really like is your take on the "Monster Truck" finish. Is it as rough as a true truck bed liner or are we seeing an optical illusion and its not all that rough.

SVS uses something similar and their's is relatively smooth.

What can ya share

It appears the black 130v.2's have no dust cap where as the silvers do.

Is there any sonic differences between the two?

What color is everyone getting?

"I'm waiting on my Onkyo 804 reciever"
I have the 803 with Klipsch reference speakers with an old weak sub, hopefully this sub will perform well with my setup. I'm sure you'll like the 804.


I went with black with the logo.

I went with the black cone, I think it looks a lot better than the silver. But, its not like its going to be visible in a downfiring sub, especially when the driver is recessed into the cabinet like these are.

The speakers perform the same way. T/S parameters are no different. The moving mass is the same between the two.

This thread has the same feeling as a bunch of boys standing on a ledge. Everyone thinks it's cool to jump in, but no one is willing to go first. Once one goes and doesn't hit his head on a rock, then they all jump in. I ordered one today and I'll post frequency response charts. My current sub that I'll be comparing it to is an Athena P4000. I have a BFD so I'll try and post how it works raw and what I can manage with the BFD. It's coming up to Canada, so don't expect graphs next week. Mail by sled takes longer than that. Long time lurker, lifetime cheapskate, too good of a deal to pass up. I was saving my pennies for an SVS PB10, but this looks close on paper, but we'll see when it arrives. I'm primarily interested in it's performance with movies so I'll run the usual bass freaks tracks. (U571 depth charge, Finding Nemo tapping the tank, WOTW, etc).
