Not really looking to sell only because they are next to impossiable to get your hands on. The price is 11000 if anyone would be interested. I just wanted to let anyone who lives close and had an interest in hearing and seeing it to know that there is one on display.

for 11 grand, i would want mine brand new in the box

for that money, you could get 7 svs pb13-ultra's

actually, you could probably get 9 with the discount of such a large purchase (i've inquired)

All this noise about noise.

I don't think the Gotham is really trying to be the biggest bang for the buck any more than the Velodyne 1812 does.

By this logic people would buy a few of Nissan G35X's in place of a BMW M6 or a Porsche GT2...

The people who will buy the Gotham do not care how many lesser subs you can buy. The Gotham is a gorgeous,luxurious piece of high end audio. As great as a Fathom f113,SVS Ultra 13 or competitors are the Gotham has a level of quality not found in any sub under 5K.The cabinet itself makes all the MDF boxes look and feel like...budget units.

Would I buy ten lesser tube amps in exchange of my Tenor Audio OTL's...NEVER.

Ask yourself mortal , do you have as much displacement as me ? The answer is no unless you have a Windmere fan sub.

Is this the store that used to be called "Flanner and Haffsoos" at the Mayfair Mall? When I lived in Milwaukee some 24 years ago, I used to frequent that store. It was a great high-end store back then. (It likely still is, if you're carrying the Gotham ).

oh, hi ear, i've missed you

my post was more of a playful, time to waste at work, non logical post (people do do that here from time to time)

i saw the gotham video, very impressive

when i was 18, i used to own a brand new 1987 buick grand national which was the fastest production car that year, actually, it was the fastest production car out of detroit in 20 years (at that point). maybe it's just my illogical self but i wouldn't have traded it for one of those slower porches or vettes for anything in the world. they might have been able to go around corners faster but i would have been at my destination already

live long and prosper

I'D much rather have the Grand National/GNX than a Porsche. They have become nothing more than Hopped up Volkswagen

I could buy several 18" drivers for the price of a Gotham so it definitely is far from bang for your buck. Heck, you could probably buy 2 fathoms for the price of a gotham (Im pretty sure)

The gotham is just so beautiful to look at.

You can easily get three Fathoms for the price of one Gotham but yes, they are gorgeous. They also look menacing at the same time.

Beautiful.
Absolutely stunning.
When is the quad 18" W8 version due?

Sorry, there is so many things wrong about that statement that I don't know where to begin. Have you even driven a Porsche lately? But alas, this is an audio forum and I don't want to get into arguments and get this thread closed.

Drooling uncontrollably on my screen. Anyone want to buy my pair of F113s so I can buy this? Just kidding, my room layout suits the pair of F113s better. Maybe I can convince my wife that I need 2 gothams?

Flanner's still exists, but has located several miles west. They are a separate business. Some of my existing equipment is from there.

So true. So many times I'm fondling some beautiful piece of gear and my wife comes over and says "that's ugly".
Er, that didn't sound right.
