Looking for Subwoofer in Portland, Oregon

I'm looking for a decent sub for my HT. 12 inch driver, box-shaped, black, $400 max. Let me know if you are in my area and have a sub you want to sell. Local only, thanks.

I have a HSU VTF 15H I am looking to sell...I am in Salem...I know it doesn't fit your exact description, but in only looking for $600. Its a sweet sub, worth at least checking out the specs online.

If you can stretch your budget, I have two SI 18s in sealed 22" cube boxes. I'm still using them, but looking at trying something a little different. PM me if you're interested. I'm in NW Portland.

tgeorge--I of course am aware of HSU's reputation and would love to have one, but I'm afraid $600 is more than I can afford to spend on a sub at the moment ... thanks for the offer anyway!

thucker--I hadn't heard of SI but will pm you to find out more about them.

Well, that's a shame. I have a Cerwin Vega sub I'm selling that match your specs for only $100 but I'm in California.

Do you mind if I claim second dibs on it if you find something in the meantime?

I'm a little less than 4hours away and have a couple CS-18.2's - I could sell you one for a little over your mentioned price.

Obviously I haven't kept up with the subwoofer market as I'm not familiar with CS, Jim. I'll look into that model and get back to you. Thanks for responding!

EDIT: Those look to be a little too high--almost tower like?--for the space I have to use them with. I need more of an end-table boxy kind of form ... If I can find away around that I'll let you know ...

If you don't mind the drive to Seattle, I have a Rythmik 15in down firing sub. Used it for a little over a year. I've retired and moved to an apartment and there's no way I can use it here. It's been boxed up in all the original package materials and box. Not to sure which model it is. If your interested pm me and I'll pull it out and find what the particulars are. My price will be under what you're looking to spend. It's in perfect condition. Used in a smoke free /pet free house . I forgot to mention it's black and a box type of sub.

Hi Tangled,

I need to downsize, and have two Hsu VTF-2's that need a new home. I bought them new years ago, but they have been well cared for, not used much and always at moderate volume (my wife is sensitive to low freq). Both are available. They make a buzz when disconnected (one more than the other), so Hsu tech support says the plate amp needs to be replaced. Either a new Hsu amp, or one like this Dayton SPA25.

I'm about 2 hours away from Portland, and can get them to you in a few days.
Let me know if you're interested, and I'll send you some images.

Stew
The search for excellence is unending . . .

I have an SVS PB-1000 I may be selling very soon. I'm likely buying some new gear this week, so I'll keep you posted if you're still in the market. I'm in SW Portland.
