secondly, take a jl w7 woofer and look at it closely compared to the other driver in question... why there is a price difference becomes rather obvious...
I think this is an overly generalized statement.
Cheaper or more expensive is relative, i.e.: there are those who spent thousands on eD products, and there are those poor dudes like myself who only got an $800 sub from them.
Sure, it's cheaper than high-end SVS sub, but that wasn't the reason why I got mine.
The specs and all the positive pro reviews were the determinant factor.
It's like saying somene is a cheap SOB because he bought a $45K Nissan over German brands. I don't think price is the factor at play here.
Or like saying a person in that "cheaper" crowd because he could only afford one sub million dolllar home?
Lastly, this all feels similar to the dotcom or property bubble, where only once the bubble burst (in this case, eD), now all the "experts" came out with their expert analysis (that sounds more like two cents). Where were these experts during the boom? My point exactly.
I personally think this should remain owners' thread, to help owners of the product.
Not as "I told you so" thread. If you don't have anything positive to contribute ( like suggestions to fix broken amp or anything else), don't.
