Agreed - the trigger time for a fuse to blow is nowhere near fast enough to protect the amp from a surge like that. AAMOF, the fuse doesn't always pop; when I lost that sub the fuse survived but the...

It's actually not a bad sub, all things considered. The output and SQ are a whole lot better then you might think when you look at how tiny this thing is. I bought one to play around with, because...

I have a Baby Boomer, which is the larger brother to that one, and Pinnacle claims a -3dB point of 23Hz for it. In the past I've found Pinnacles quoted spec's to be pretty accurate, but in this case...

If you're willing to spend the entire sum on a pair of subs now then the Outlaw's are the way to go. I have heard one of those myself, and for the current sale price it will be very hard to beat.

Agreed; my guess is the amp now has a problem. Something like a blown transformer could have easily sent a surge down the line, and when power is restored there's a tendency to do so abruptly and...

+1

There's no indication of the dimensions for the room that the 5.1 system will be going in, but if it isn't too large for the NXG this suggestion is right up there with the best of them.

What about something like the Avantone MixCube (http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MixCubes)? It's pretty small, and it should be very accurate; they're used to mix in a studio environment.
