(1) Very happy wife, she said it's better than the movie theater
I stopped by Magnolia yesterday to audition the subwoofers they had. I currently have a Yamaha PSW160 (dual 6") sub running with my Mythos one's, four's and eight, powered by a VSX-84.
I listened to a Supercube 1, Vienna Acoustics 12" 500W (cant remember the model), and a M&K VX-1250SFX (12", 250W). I also LOOKED at REL's....very pricey, but sounded good.
The supercube and the Vienna sounded very boomy in the low end, with the Vienna sounding a little more accurate. I was about to pull the trigger on the Vienna (they were on clearance sale), when I decided to listen to the M&K that was sitting in the corner. Out of the three, it was the only one that I couldnt tell where it was, and I also couldnt decipher it's bass from the others.
Turns out it was also on sale, so I brought it home. Now that I have it hooked up, I still have a lot of tuning left to do. In a nutshell, I was really not impressed with the supercube. For those that are looking at them, I'd highly recommend that you at least take a listen to others. I may still go back an look more seriously at the REL's, they are very spendy, but from what i hear, they are one of the best out there.
