People probably don't remember, but the Cadence XSUB was once offered on ebay for $189 with free shipping. As soon as Craigsub did a review, and I mentioned it at Audioholics, the price jumped up to $249. I haven't seen it drop since. To top it off, Cadence has some issues with their monster class A/B amps humming. I've had three amps in my Cadence, and finally got a quiet one. It's got similar build quality, a much bigger and more powerful amp, but the driver is a notch down from the H100. It still fills my almost 4000 cu/ft room with bass down to 25Hz, so I'm not complaining.
$190 for the H100 ($220 shipped) is a great deal. I think I may opt to spend a few dollars more for something like this though - every component is a step up from the Acoustech sub, and you're talking almost 62lbs. of subwoofer. It will pressurize a room much more efficiently than most 12" subs in equal or smaller cabinets.http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-770
