I also wanted to say thank you to shift, Hksvr4, Chris, sputter1, benclement11, and menace and everyone else in this thread for the kind words and support. Ethan and I really do appreciate it and it makes it that much easier to take the constructive criticism and make us want to do another.

Well it'll be awhile. I have to do the basement first and that's probably gonna be a year or two till completed. Hopefully sooner but I doubt it. However we do have a mini-review coming up soon.

Maybe I'm thinking i should feel the sound more, esp. for music, but it doesn't get that low sound with authority. What do you guys think? Is it me or the sub?
I don't know if you called HSU yet like spyboy suggested, but a lot depends on your room and also how loud you like it. Is your room large? In a concrete basement? Maybe you're sitting in a null where the "punch in the chest" would normally thump you. The HSU shook my house pretty good and hit pretty decent numbers, right around 110db average. I do remember some people mentioning it plays pretty flat across it's entire frequency range. That seemed to be the case in our shootout. The spl's didn't vary that greatly. So maybe depending on your listening tastes it might not do it as well as some other subs. I think most people would agree that the kick or punch in the chest feeling comes from mid bass frequencies though, so if you're down in those areas that might be why you feel they're missing. Do you have a frequency response at your main LP? Just some thoughts that might help explain your lack of that punch.

That's impressive numbers on that scene. It's one of the harder ones for subs to reproduce since it goes pretty low. Actually Ethan's BIL had that sub. I would've liked to heard it in my house. It probably would've done well in the shootout. I remember listening to it in Ethan's BIL's house and he was hitting around those numbers IIRC. It moves a good bit of air. ED subs are pretty good bang for your buck subs.
