i have few sub in my home right now , thiel ss22, martin logan decent i (10 inch x 3 ), elac 211d (10 x1 ,12 x 1 )and did borrow jl110 n 112 from my friend. i do also play with many different brand 's sub like velodyne or sunfire ,but these are the only few that suited in my place (150 feet) . i like super fast react .......i don't need quantity but quality .
my english not that good ,just wanna share my happiness,i bought a second hand ss2 1 month ago because wanna blend in better with my center n front ,but the sound really surprised me ...........very very real n accurate as i have listened a jazz bluray concert from diana krell since hd audio but i never notice the bass guitar sounds like a bass guitar but not only a sound of bass ,the high fidelity just makes everything more clear, the driver have strong punch that most expensive sub will do , but this ss2.2 was brilliant ,especially when it pull back , it makes a huge contrast from silent, it always under control n pull back super fast .i think thats the hardest thing for a sub ,never boom or out of control . even compare to the jl 110 or 112 in my exact same system .the quantity may less than 112 but the quality was at least 20 % better , the detail was so clear nomatter how you turn the volume , the most obvious result was that if i turn the JL very loud, it will cover the center or the front 's sound but ss2 wont . just to be fair , JL was already so great since they step in ht. but for music ,thiel hands down .the only disavantage was the price . if the price can go down , i guess thiel 's sub can be real famous in the world .
