When they go on sale they really are the bargain champs, IMO.
Thanks poolboy! I'm actually quite glad that my eD order took so long that i decided to switch. Ended up with a better sub that shipped right away (got it in 5 days!...had to cancel that one after 5 weeks with no end in sight), dont have to worry about amp failures or driver failures, and got a much longer warranty to boot.
Also, if this is B-stock...i sure as hell cant figure out whats wrong with it. There might be a spot or two that isnt completely perfect, and theres (maybe) a darkish black line across the amp that might be something, but im trying really hard to find something wrong at this point. I'm really pleased with Outlaw! Plus i really really like the way it looks. It's nice to get something and just be happy with it.
I'm kind of having some trouble with the loudness of the bass. Its like theres so much new stuff that I've never heard, that i dont know how loud i should be hearing it heh. I suppose I should get an SPL meter, but at radio shack all they have is the digital kind. Its at -15db and actually sounds good (still maybe loud; 5 on gain), so i'm thinking about bumping it down to 3-4 on the gain level and then going from there (since +/- 15db is the max the receiver can go). Usually Audyssey sets its really low, but since this thing is SO loud, even -15db (as ridiculous as that seems) might not be low enough!
...only sucky part is that the people who aren't watching movies when i am bitch about the house shaking (WITH a gramma). And about things outside of the house shaking haha (light fixtures by the front door...wtf?!).

Wow, long post.
