The sub has been serving our family very well, and almost everyone who's visited has been quite impressed by the demo.
I really did not wanted a classy Ferrari or a Porsche finish on this sub, it was never meant to be a luxury car, I just wanted it to be presentable cos this was to be sitting in the main room. I just did not wanted something huge sitting in the living room with industrial paint all over it. I have moved the sub to a better location, and mostly out of view, but still if anyone looks over, they do realize its something gorgeous, and not cheezy, the orange peel is visible only when direct sunlight or high halogen is beamed on an object, but in this case.. i cannot complain. Its just a good deal i got out of the cabinet maker, and Steve did a good job.
However on a side note, i am not very happy with the Dayton SA1000 amp that i have attached to the sub (I know its an over kill), but i wanted a rack mounted amp and more importantly the auto turn off feature when the sub is not i use, and auto turn on when in use.
The reason being, i am using a Denon 4311CI AVR, and Audyssey XT32 does not do justice to the equalization, I was told that Dayton SA1000 and Audyssey XT32 dont go well with horn subwoofers.
