How could I recommend an SVS sub if I've never seen nor heard one? They are not on every street corner where I live. I know that many here believe that they have some inane talent to recommend all sorts of products & I often get the feeling that they have little or no experience with the actual product. I read this stuff all the time in the 'choose speakers for me' threads. I'm realistic enough to know that I don't have these magic powers & refrain from doing so.
What drives me crazy is your juvenile & constant brand bashing. That's all...
Its not brand bashing. I had SVS subwoofers, Boston Acoustic subwoofers, Elemental Designs, DIY subwoofers and Axiom subwoofer
I know right . I've heard HSU subwoofers, Velodynes, Polks, Mirage, and JLs. So when I say that Axiom isn't a good as SVS for example and I tell the OP to pass on the Axiom and go with SVS, I'm basing that on personal IN HOME experience.
Just because you refuse to try out different products and expand outside of Axiom doesn't mean everyone else is so narrowed experienced. Its not magic powers to have heard or owned multiple brands. I'm sure you don't feel the same way when someone recommends Axiom, I bet you don't think they have some magic voodoo powers
Its not juvenile, its showing people a different side of a company (which I have experience) that its not all sunshire and happy warm thoughts. Its peoples money.
And you never answered any of my questions, what would you recommended to a poster asking some of those questions I posted? Thats right you don't have any experience with any thing but go about telling us that we're wrong and are just detractors.
