Took home my F113 on Thursday night and I took the day off to play around with it (and some errands) and wanted to share my initial impressions - It is not fully configured for my system since I am waiting for my Berihnger 8000 to arrive, but its close enough for now.
I don't think I've ever heard a sub that actually sounds like you have a drum kit in the room - Not just the sound of a kick drum, but being able to discern various different amplitudes (how hard it is being kicked) between beats and its attack. It is simply astounding.
One of the lowest recorded notes I've found is on Engima's "Cross of Changes", the last track on the album. I never noticed it before, I not only felt and heard D-0 (18.35 hz), but there is another note yet still lower, (?< D-0, C-0 is 16.35 Hz) but could not figure it out - Never mind the note, it was still audible and the house was shaking off the foundation.
Like so many others, I am completely satisfied with the SQ of this sub and don't mind the extra bucks to get so much output from this small box - I can't even imagine two of these in a room (nethomas, where are you?), and my room is just under 4800 cubic feet with a 15' vaulted ceiling. Without a doubt, this is the new King....Until the Gotham is released.
PS.. no complaints from the neighbors, but a police officer did stop by as he was driving through the subdivision - said he heard it from the top of the street...
