The outlaw LFM-1 Plus is a 12" ported sub and it is 58 lb! SVS PB12 is some 66lb
Dont tell me BA has better expertise in building subs than SVS or Outlaw or other ID sub companies.
Show me one review of this sub where someone measured it and posted the curve. Then we can discuss if it is even worth $350.
62 pounds could be the shipping weight. Sometimes they make a mistake and show the shipping weight instead of the net weight, or, it could be something as simple as using 1 inch MDF instead of 3/4 inch MDF. It might also have a bucking magnet which would add to the weight.
Also, since the original MSRP is over $1,500, buyers might very well expect the sub to have some heft.
No professional reviews are going to happen on this sub at this late date. FR is probably good to 30 hz and roll off below that.
From what can be inferred from the specs, I would expect it to perform at least as well as the Emotiva Ultra 12. With 500 watts and the passive radiator, I would say it is a reasonable sub at a low price point.
Also, one member bought a pair of MSRP $2,000 each Jamo D7 subs for $500 each from Vann's and they were pretty good performers. Those sold out quickly.
