If you need subs for Home Theater use rather than music, I would think the standard F12, not the paper-cone G version, would be the better choice. The G doesn't let you cross-over at a substantially...

With your room having that large a volume, I have no doubt everyone here will tell you the same thing: More subs!

I know exactly what I would do if I were in your situation. Seeing as you want to stay as close as possible to $1000, and want a sub that sounds good at lower volume, with tight, agile bass, then...

There are those who feel that the paper-cone GR driver, while not as stiff as the Rythmik aluminum when pushed hard (and therefore displaying a little cone-breakup), has very slightly higher...

Thanks for that product page Peter (how 'bout that alliteration?!). I don't see the F8 on Rythmik's finished subs page. Brian has offered his amps modified for OB use, in which the cross-over...

I neglected to comment on the topic of the sound from the subs reflecting off the front and side walls, causing time smearing. While it is true that crossing over above 100Hz would lead to...

The 8" paper-cone driver itself is shown as available on the Rythmik website, but not in a factory-finished sub. The 12" is available in a Rythmik enclosure, and can be crossed over as high as 240Hz,...

For crossing-over that high, Brian and Danny Richie (GR Research) recommend the F12G with a paper cone woofer.

Funny, isn't it? One person sees two Rythmiks vs. one Seaton as an unfair comparison, another sees one on one as unfair. If one wants to determine what he will be giving up by getting a Rythmik...

You're missing an important point, bh81. Being able to place a pair of subs in two different locations is one of the things the same amount of money buys you (two Rythmiks vs. one Seaton), it's a...

A more relevant comparison would be two FV15HP's (or better yet, two F15HP's) versus one Submersive HP.

If the used ET's you find are 8b's, even better, as they have the improved tweeter.

The big (usually 18" driver) DIY subs I've seen are nothing more than a driver or two in a big box with a pro power amp feeding it. Rather under-engineered, IMO.

It's surprising, but a grand piano's bottom keys actually produce lower fundamental frequencies than does a bass! And a full-size pipe organ's lowest bass pedal creates a 16HZ tone! A subwoofer (or...

Sound guys call the bass drum of a drumset the "kick", to avoid confusion with the (electric) bass. Think of it this way: The acoustic/stand-up/double bass and the electric bass have the same scale...

Right, right. The fundamental of the open E string bass note is 42Hz, but of course the string also creates harmonics of the 42Hz E note, and all other notes played. It is the relative strength of...

Maggies vs. ET's

Don, I'm going to guess that it was the ET LFT-8 you heard, not the 8A or 8B. The A introduced a different woofer and cross-over, the B replaced the tweeter with an improved version. But yeah, it's...

F12 or F15HP

Danny, the matte black F15HP is on sale right now for $1074, making it only $200 more than the non-SE F12. Only you can decide if the F15 is worth $200 more than the F12 (15" woofer versus 12", 600...
