they are not the final word in all things subwoofer, obviously. But for what you get for the price they are among the best if not the best ~$200 sub around. I liked the one I bought a couple of years ago so much that when someone was selling one locally on Craigslist for $100 i jumped all over it. I've been using 2 505's for a couple of years now and cant say i have been disappointed in anyway. Personally for the type of music i like they fit in wonderfully (mostly electronic based music - synth-pop, industrial, EBM, darkwave, goth, etc), For HT use, while not the lowest diggers around, I did measurements on my pair when set up in my old house and they got down to 23hz before they started rolling off. I believe they are rated to start rolling off around 25-28hz, but with proper set up and room gain in play mine dug a bit deeper. I would recommend them in a heartbeat for any one looking for a sub in the $200ish range.
I am likely upgrading early next year and will be stepping up to a hsu or svs sub, but the time ive had with my 505's they have been a blast.
