I'm sorry, respectively, at $3k and almost $4k for one subwoofer, my budget isn't big enough to consider anything that expensive, to be a bargain.
And to some, I'm sure they are.
I appreciate the brevity of your thought but my idea of a bargain is a used, cherry wood Martin Logan, Depth i for $1,300.00. My idea of a bargain is a 5% discount on a pair of delivered, SVS PB-12NSD's. Like every other budget minded married guy, my idea of money management is next year, buying a used Martin Logan, Depth i and at some later time and date of my wife's approval, following up with a second one.
(Joking here. I never realized, looking at a pair of $1k - $2k each subs, was considered slumming it.)
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for anybody who has a budget sufficient to see a pair of these Funk subwoofers as a bargain. If I had enough money to see the Funk subwoofers as a bargain, I'd step up and throw down on a pair of separate 240v/30A circuits, (if need be, have the 200A service upgraded to a 300A service), install a pair of Paradigm Sub2's and be done with it but that's a personal opinion I can't afford to carry.
Now I feel like a charity case. Anybody got a pair of Paradigm Sub2's they don't want. I promise to take really good care of them.
