Not even a comparison really, it's a Sub 10, but no big changes there....
Firstly I'll have you know I recently started getting into HT, I was a big car audio guy for years, then I had to grow up (get old). I'm not old per say, it's just not as fun anymore rolling around town in the car with the Subs pumping out that beautiful bass making the car next to you rattle. I'll also have you know this is my first real HT sub outside of your typical B & M brands. I was big into JL Audio subs and Rockford Fosgate Amps (before they went mainstream) in the cars (entered many of novice comp's and did my own work), Those JL subs hit hard and deep from your mids down, I can say that this is the closest I've come in the "House" to experiencing that same hard hitting type of bass without getting muddy and distorted. I've taken myself back a few years so far and have listened to some tracks I use to roll around playing to show off my car audio system's
Korn- Korn "Blind"
RKelly - 12 Play
White Zombie - Thunder Kiss '65
Luke Skywalker/2live Crew (all bass, all the time, lol)
Metallica - "Black"
This empire handles them all well from the mid bass down, I love the hard hitting bass lines in Korn and you can't beat Lars Ulrich's double thumpers hitting you in the chest. To bad the wife's going to be home soon..
I've yet to do any movie watching, but I'll do some tonight. Probably some of the titles sticky'd in this Sub section....
Edit: I'm also waiting for my 25ft sub cable and F/F adapter (get's here Tues) to place my sub where it should be, sounds good now, but according to my "crawling" ears, I need to move it across the room in the opposite corner...
