I agree. There are certainly other specialty companies out there that only do subwoofers or do them really well. I've heard dozens upon dozens of woofers, home audio and car audio. And nothing quite compares to a 12"-15" inch in a huge enclosure with lots of power handling. But, at $350 a piece on these E1010 models, I don't think it gets much better. You check out some of these other companies for a 12"+ and you're paying anywhere from $600-$2000 dollars for a single sub. And I tell ya what... After ten minutes with my two E1010 woofers pumping, my ears feel like they're gonna bleed. I'm satisfied all day long, especially for the price.
