The BAS 500 goes down to 18hz so I can't wait to listen to it and I would give you an update. It might take a few weeks though!
What I would also recommend is just buy it and then try it out... AV house sells it on Amazon for $259 with a free shipping and 30 days return policy too.
Yes, they have a 30 day return policy. However, I read they also have a 20% restocking fee ("Returns for reasons other than product defect or AV House mistake may be charged a restocking fee of up to 20%."). Looks like you're paying the freight on return shipping, too. Kind of an expensive way to try it out.
And I'm betting it will never get to 18Hz. The cabinet dimensions read a bit smaller than a BIC F-12 (but it's three pounds heavier?). Dunno what it's RMS wattage is, since it's not stated, but it appears to be good dynamically for 25 more watts than the F-12. It's a nice looking sub (at least the one image I've seen of it) and actually resembles, perhaps, a nicer-looking F-12 or PL-200. Who knows?
Have you ever had a problem with your NXG and how did the company treat you? I wrote BIC one
email, asking about why the cones on my PL-89s looked different in-person than their advert images and received a fairly curt response from their customer service rep.
Looking forward to Jim's review since I have money now burning a hole in my pocket for a new sub (ha!).
