Or if you wouldn't mind shipping me your Jamo Sub 650 after you are finished - - I'll pay return shipping to you and I'll borrow my brother's RW-12D again to compare them directly with some measurements.
No pressure --- of course...it's just an idea.
No pressure, except on my wallet.
My MO for the reviews has always been to select somewhat obscure brands, or those that are known but haven't gotten much exposure. The RW-12d really doesn't qualify as either, which is primarily why I've stayed away from it. That, plus the fact I'm now at the point where I no longer have to buy the review units -- the manufacturers send them to me free of charge -- but even with that I somehow doubt Klipsch would send me a sub to review (I never actually broached the topic with them though). I made an exception for the Sub 650 only because at $300 it did seem like quite a deal (Jamo never responded to my request for a review unit).
That being said... from what I can tell the Sub 650 might be a discontinued model. Places like Amazon and BH Photo list it as out of stock or discontinued, and unlike the RW-12d (and the S10.3) this one seems to be unavailable. Well, except for Vanns anyway. Do you know if it's end of life?
