Vitod...there is a difference between over-exhuberance and plain ridiculous statements, and being estatic about a commercial sub you just bought.
re-read the above posts for example....
yes, we all came from commercial subs at one point or another, and as Bosso mentioned, the Fathom is a superb sub and raised the bar for sure.....which means, more performance for us consumers. But the issue is idiotic comments like "SVS don't count...anyone can make large subs that go deep", or "JL beat the stuffing out of SVS", etc,.....you know, anything to justify why you spent $3500 on a single sub instead of fractions of that to get 80-90% the performance.
Surely those of us with big DIY subs, multi-driver sealed subs with EQ/LT/Bassis/etc, IBs, LLTs, etc, etc, are happy with our stuff as well, and would never say an idiotic thing as "the Fathom would Never hang"....yes, 4-6 fathoms or gothams can probably hang with a typical IB, or with Bosso's or KG's setup....yes, 2-3 fathoms can probably hang with my upcoming two towers, and do it at a much much smaller footprint...at a 10x factor obviously.
I dont know...I guess the point is, I just dont understand or can't relate with the likes of some of the people mentioned above, because I for one would never be one to come on an online forum and boast about 30 subwoofers that I owe or whatever, and use that as a measuring stick. But to each its own I guess....its a free country with free speech I guess.
I mean, this is classic stuff right here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post9163702"ooooh, look at me!!! I have 11tybillion dollars and I can afford all subs....blah blah blah. Oh yeah, look ma', my twin fathom's are on top of some online forum user's list....hooray for me!!"
christ, no wonder Yates, nouissaine, kuypers, mullen, deering, and all the others almost never come around these forums.....I'm surprised people like Bosso and a couple of others still hang around despite some of these new gems that are coming on board.
