It's been awhile since I've been to the subwoofer forum so I didn't see your post earlier. I purchased the M8 awhile back and I have no regrets. Before I purchased it, I verified with Outlaw that my basement room (20x11x8) was within its specs. I love watching movies and tv's with it, and sometimes when the kids are downstairs watching a movie, the rumbling I hear upstairs, is really amazing. I'm no audiophile; just a normal user and I'm completely satisfied with the M8.
