Then there would be a reason.
About the gotham, I'm sure it has awesome build quality and sound quality, but I can't imagine the markup is that modest either. Does it crush every sub-$2k sub in sound quality? If not, then it's the kind of product I despise.
Better speakers,well I have Dynaudio Contour 3.3 , S3.4 and S5.4. Not so low end after all. I will get some Pioneer TAD mains and center later this year.
You cannot crush a well designed $2000 sub in sound quality, it does so in build quality and the maximum output in a very compact volume(internal net volume). Fact you cannot "crush" as you say a well deigned $500 sub in sound quality.
Same for speakers and any type of gear you care to name. Will a Krell FPB600 crush a SimAudio Celeste 4070SE in sound quality...NO.
Will Mark Seaton's SubMersive (~$2000) crush his own design a $499 MFW-15 in sound quality...NOPE. SO dont bring this excuse about crushing.
I am in this hobby for far too long to be in a crushing business,you want crush...go see a monster truck show.
