That would actually be good information regarding the poll- does this person plan on using this for any music?
No; for my buddy anyway (I think Flt Simulation was asking for his own purposes) this sub would be almost 100% HT.
I sent him an email yesterday morning; just to have him start looking at some of the contenders...at least as of that point. He knows NOTHING about subs, and I'm not as hardcore as some of you guys. I did some
research, and opted for a JLA F-112 (do not judge please...that's not what this
post is about
Obviously this choice is in a different price range, so I elicited the help of the forum. The email I sent was just to see if anything "stood out" to him; caught his eye, for whatever reason...given he does not know much about the subject. After all...in the end, he's relying on my
recommendation...and I, in turn...am relying on your advice
; but it's his
purchase. If something struck him...for whatever reason; I figured I'd start leaning that way, and digging further.
The 4 subs I sent him for consideration...again, based on feedback at that
time...were the Epik Legend, SVS SB-12, and the two Outlaw LFM-1s. If it were my call to make, right now...I'd see if he wanted to spend a little more, and go with the LFM-1 EX. It's the lead vote-getter...then and now; but more than that, just seems to get the almost universal nod (not everyone is picking
it, but everyone seems to agree it's a fine choice nonetheless).
He did express an opinion; he asked about the Epik Legend. Why? IMO, it's because it's shown to have been "regularly" priced at $899, was "reduced" to $649...and is now on "sale" for $499. That tells me two things, I already knew about my friend; a, he loves a bargain
and b, even though I could talk him into extending his budget...he's not really looking
Based on that...I'm going to narrow the search a bit at this point. Let's talk Epik Legend, Outlaw LFM-1 Plus (also a $500 choice)...and the EX (someone mentioned it's been on sale for $550; he's quite a negotiator, so if he could get it at that price...let's keep it in the mix).
I'm not sure if I can edit the poll...so let's just do write-ins at this point...lol; or talk it through. The Epik Legend looks like a good choice to me as well; if nothing else, dual-drivers has to count for something
? Of course, two drivers of sh*t isn't better than 1 driver of quality...lol; but I doubt the Epik is that bad, and it is pulling up 2nd-place at this point.
Is it really an "$900" sub on sale for $500? If we're keeping the LFM-1 EX in the mix, because my buddy migh be able to talk his way down to the $550 sale price...would you take a Epik Legend at $500, or Outlaw LFM-1 EX at $550?
I cannot thank the forum enough for the feedback thus far! It's been informative, enlightening...and with relatively little in-fighting.
