What other models are you looking at?
Well, I didn't know you had to join up and become an Amazon Prime member to get the free shipping. When I looked at the "Free Super Saver Shipping" details it doesn't say anything about Amazon Prime. So, what do they do? Do they hit you up with that Amazon Prime membership after you pay for your item, or what? If so, that's not right cuz it doesn't say anything about it in the "details".
As far as other subs I've been looking at are the Bic PL-200 which I think you can still get for $249 shipped and the Cadence CSX12 Mark II for $279 shipped. Both are on my short list especially if I have to pay shipping on the JBL ES250PBK. I think the CSX12 Mark II with a weight of 67.25 pounds has the bettter build quality of any sub $300 sub out there including the Klipsch RW12d.
So far all I've done as far as comparing subwoofers is read about them and then that all depends on who's doing the writing. I sometimes wish I didn't live in such a rural area so I could maybe listen to some of these offerings and compare them that way but it is what it is and I guess I'm just going to have to take a chance on one of these and live with it. That's why I refer to the build quality of the Cadence because I can pretty much see that. As far as the subs I have listed here playing in the <30Hz frequencxy range, well, that's not the high point of any of these subs so it comes down to, like I said, build quality, and also how the graphs look in the >30Hz frequency range where they all look pretty good although I have to admit I'm just now learning to understand these graphs.
I have to try and find out about this Amazon shipping thing.
