Chris;

I'm glad something I wrote/said was helpful to you with one of your purchases. DIY can be a blast, so I wish you a lot of success with your new build!

He does, and a bunch of them are killer! Given what's been going on of late it's quite the surprise really. I've been getting this question a lot recently though, so it's probably time to fess up...

With the speakers you have, and the sub you already own, you're looking for even more? You need a 10 step program my friend... :p

Based upon what he recently sent me for review - a pair of F8's which, as the name implies, use 8" drivers - my guess is that goal just became even more elusive. ;)

That's because it is, there's simply no denying that. Subs with 15" drivers are plentiful - and a bunch of them are very impressive - but the FV15HP is still the class of the field, even though it...

There is simply no way to make a determination about the Echo's performance at this point in time. Perhaps it will fall into the same league as the VTF-3, but there isn't any way to know that right...

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...

How did you come to the conclusion that he blindly added an 8dB bump when he clearly stated he has already measured his frequency response?

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.
