sjmarcy and anyone following this thread,
I had read some of the back and forth banter going on before you removed your posts. That is maybe why I responded to your post as if your were rolling your eyes at my excitement over my sub. You have to admit that it is not hard to take it that way after all the attacks/counter attacks on this thread. If you took what I said as an attack, I assure you it was not. I do not even know you (or Craig) for that matter.
All I know is that this is a very good forum for consumers to get info about products that can't be heard in a show room and most people can't afford to buy both and send one back. I take Craig's tests and opinions as just that, opinions with some visual graphs to look at. The room he is testing in will react with the sub very differently than my room so I can only take his results as a reference point of how different subs will react in a similar placement location in his room with some calibration.
I saw some of your posts questioning his testing methods and I can see if a magazine or lab is comparing subs, the methods need to be stated. As far as I know, Craig is just a regular guy with a few connections and a love of testing subs on his own time so I am happy at least someone is doing that so I can read about it.
I also have an impression that you are very knowledgeable about subs and the technical background to good subwoofers. It would be nice to know what your opinions are on 'What to look (listen) for when purchasing a sub.' It would have helped me when I was researching subs. The more information, the merrier.
BTW, maybe we should all lighten up a little about this thread. It is just about subwoofers you know (faint gasping heard). There are many other things to get truly agitated over. For example, the dumb ass teenagers that robbed and murdered my wifes uncle and his co-worker over god knows what little money they had in the register. Due to their stupid actions, they caused an unneeded loss in two families. The co-worker had a 7 year old daughter that will now never see her mother again.
I wonder how crazy people would get if this was a political/religious forum.
