Comcast has the same issue. I solved it by using one of these (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017I3K9M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1), and I don't even have to use a cheater.

Yes, to the extent that the speakers will be completely overmatched by a subwoofer like the LV12R (or most of the others mentioned). You're blowing those little things up now, so just imagine what...

What a brilliant way to sell this behemoth to the little woman! Make it into a piece of furniture. Very crafty indeed. ;)

There are many people in the "best bang for the buck!" category, especially on forums, but that doesn't necessarily constitute the majority of the market. JL Audio does what they do very...

I just checked the back of these F8's and it says HX580, so it looks like Rythmik has a few new amps in the line up.

I'm not certain he has either, but realistically the 215 is a different beast. When you hear/see these things in real life it's quite the experience. Trust me... ;)

Your hunch may indeed be correct, but it might not be as well. It all depends upon several factors, among them are room size, budget, playback volume and musical preference.

Is that definitely the amp for the L12? It's the exact same one on the F8's Brian sent me for review, but I wasn't sure if he's using it on the L12 as well.

I wasn't able to get info for #2 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=2) either. I was able to weigh the driver when I had one though, and it came in at 42 pounds.

You're using Bose speakers and a single Sony 12" subwoofer in an area that measures 7500 ft^3??? To be completely honest, I'm surprised you can even hear either of them in such a massive space. ...
