I got the Phoenix today after only a 12 day wait from order to door step! First let me say that I was taken aback by the size of the box, I knew it would be big but damn! Chad has really done a fine job of making sure that Fedex looks good in delivering an un damaged product.
As you can see he really has done a fine job of padding this beast of a sub.
I was also a bit suprised by the size of the ports on the bottom of the sub, Man they don't look as big as they really are in all the pictures I have seen online!!
After I did a few minor adjustments to the AVR and wrangled the sub into it's resting place I fired it up. Man what a performer! I have my speakers all set to the 80hz THX cross over setting and all channels are for the moment set to +/-0 db, The sub is set to / volume and the cross over is set as close to the 80hz setting as I can get it. the phase is at 0. I popped in a few stand by's to test the sub and I am simply speechless by the performance this thing has! Man I know it will only get better as I fine tune it and the room. For now I am one extremely happy customer and here is a photo to prove it.
As time and setup/ tweaking this sub goes by I'll try to update my impressions. I might even be able to do a couple of side by side comparisons.
Thanks Chad for an awesome product!
