He was a great contributor to the forums in those early days even before he started SVS.
I'm a bit late to this thread, but I'm glad to see Tom V is still around. When I was in the market for a new sub about 9-10 years ago, I came across SVS in these forums. I'd never bought any audio equipment online before and was a bit nervous doing so. Tom went out of his way to answer my many, many questions and address my concerns. He even offered to recommend a sub I could buy from a local shop and help me set it up If I was just too uncomfortable ordering from an online company.
I was so impressed with Tom's handling of my situation and combined with all the positive feedback about SVS in these forums, I ordered a 16-46PC Plus. Nine years later I'm still enjoying my SVS sub.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to offer next.
