That CV sub looks to be more for a professional application than home use, plus only (stated) 32hz lower extension. Again, you can get much better at that price point.

And, if you're handy - DIY.
It's really not for "me" (it is, but it isn't) my father in law is wanting something "bitchin" and I'd appreciate stealing his living room from time to time. So the DIY route is out.
I know the freq doesn't go quite as low, but these are the 2 he said he was looking at. I told him I'd look into it. I'd LOVE to be able to blow the pictures off the walls. I want to feel the bass when I pop in some Battlefield 3.

I probably wouldn't be happy with it in a room over 2500 cubic feet though. It does do well for a small cube (less than 17" on a side), is built really well (it weighs 72 lbs- double the weight of the SVS SB12) and I use the remote all the time. There's just so much variation in the bass levels of music, TV, streaming content and blu-rays I would go nuts without it. My AVR is a pain to adjust the sub level. Even a better AVR would not be a convenient for adjusting the sub volume (gain).
All in all it's nice but over-priced. I most likely would not buy it again, if for some reason I had returned it or something. Only the remote is keeping me from seriously thinking of selling it and trying one of the ID brand subs.
If you can get a really good deal on it or just need a small and powerful sub for not too large an area then give it a shot.
Ok the room is 18x18 and all hardwood. The walls are hardwood paneling or cabinets. Also it's pretty open; 2 large openings for entry to the room. So now you have me wondering if that'd work. I just saw the low frequency and thought that'd be nice...
