^ Very nice. You can't beat the Funk veneers. Absolutely beautiful. And I understand they sound just as beautiful. Good choice for sure.

Thanks....Hop! Yea....I'm a stickler on looks my last 2 subs also had wood veneers....the guy who bought my PSA is a local guy & really enjoying it.

Still might pop into the PSA thread from time to time. I know there are a lot of well versed members all things audio related but fun loving too....I like that.

Yeah I miss seeing your posts in there. You're always welcome, you're still part of the family.

If I had the funds I would grab a Funk subwoofer for the living room. Heck, I think I would get the subwoofer and then decorate around it based on beauty of the sub.

Congrats! I think I remember you saying in the past that a Funk Audio sub would be your dream sub if the budget ever allowed. Enjoy.

P.S. I'd take a pair of FW21.0's!

I know the 21.0 is marginally larger than the 18.0...likewise the 18.0 vs 18.0C. Limited space constraints weighted in on my decision....room is 10x16 (~1350^3ft).

Yea...second time around with FA. I had expressed some interest based on you review of the DSS 18" and discussed some shipping options with Dave(Class act BTW). I've experience SI 18" and I'm aware how capable they are but Nathan threw me a curve ball and I why decided to become a return customer....

Hi all. Just received my FA 21.0 in Bog Sequoia Burl yesterday. Wanted to post a couple shots of it. Let me know what you folks think. I am excited to finally have this! Worth the wait! Seeing it in person is something else all together. Remarkable. As always, Nathan manages to blow you away with the details.

A push on the cone resulted in zero movement. That motor structure is no joke. Unreal

Outdoor - Pre assembly - courtesy Nathan Funk:



Indoor - Complete - courtesy Nathan Funk:
In this photo it looks like there is some spotlighting going on in this shot in the middle top of the sub, this is the natural coloration of the wood...it always looks like it has a downright shining on it.



As always with his work, seeing it in person is an entirely different and more satisfying experience. It's a privilege to own something this well crafted.

There's something to be said for a guy like Nathan who makes his own cabinets and drivers by hand. Who else does that?!?

Just a few more photos - crappy lighting. Excuse the mess...we are revamping our theatre space. I'm also currently sorting through my Man storage (hobbies etc) so it's all spread out. I'll eventually post a pic of it setup.





The corner inlay work is flawless. Amazing considering that Bog Sequoia Burl has ZERO strength and is very brittle. That Nathan made it around corners with it, or even managed to router the corners without it shattering is beyond amazing. It's literally crumbles in your hand like a crispy dried fall leaf.

The corner inlay wood material itself is Santos rosewood. Nathan got it to match perfectly.


I'm 6'4" and have BIG hands....doesn't look like it in this photo


It looks wet - that was exactly what I had hoped for.

What made you sell the PSA? You moving more westward or what!? Now I need to see/hear/feel the 18.0C!

Hey...Steve....nice to hear from you. Not Westerly(Stouffville)but about the same distance from you. Sold the PSA which I enjoyed immensely but deep down I really desired a curved Funk [sub].

New HT room is dedicated but on the small size 10*15 which required me to change much around to make the room work.

You'd be more than welcomed once it's delivered and set up to come by or I could leave it with you for a short spell....since I already owe you one...lol.

PS: Do you have any plans on going to the upcoming gtg at Nikko place? I need to ride shotgun because I fractured my left wrist assembling my garden shed...let me know as I might need to make alternative plans.

Cheers,

Bill

Are you guys going to ever make a sealed 12" sub for Music applications? Something like the Rythmik F12G but high quality box?

I would confidently put any of our current subwoofers up against anything out there for music, cone size is not a factor to consider for accurate and dynamic music reproduction. In fact I feel our 21.0 is a good step up for music applications from our already amazing 18.0. The only reason to go with a smaller cone, 15" or 12", would be to decrease enclosure size if you have a size limitation, although you would then get a proportional decrease in overall output. We can and have done 15" and 12" custom subs with curved side enclosures. Based on either our 18.0 or 18.0C platform sharing the same amplifier and driver motor structure the cost remains about the same, the savings from smaller enclosure offsets the added cost of the custom aspect.

I almost spit out my coffee when Jim posted that. Too funny! All can be forgiven...besides, all in all a very well behaved group. No "wood" jokes...so that's impressive.

Re the space you are putting your 18.0c in. That's the size of my friends theatre space....his presurizes the crap out of it...no kidding, it's sounds absolutely beautiful. Handles the pod emergence scene with absolute ease and his is the original 18.0c. You are going to love it. It truly sounds amazing and effortless.

It's slightly tempting to swap, especially since I've got a dedicated 240V line to take full advantage of the 21

I don't doubt that. Just don't have much available space these days for a second sub, and I'm lucky enough that a single does pretty well for me without needing a huge amount of EQ. Truth be told, it's a pretty rare circumstance when I actually get anywhere close to the limits of the 18.0 as is. Life with two kids is a lot tamer than it used to be with respect to home theater.

I am on a camping trip with my lovely family. In some twisted way, it stands between me and firing up my 21.0 (I feel such shame) 😜

Anyone else have some good experiences with their Funk Subs this last week?

Yes I have if by good you mean have you just recently received your new funk 18.0 sub hooked it up and played the opening scene from edge of tomorrow at -15 reference and had the crap absolutely scared out of you whilst quickly reaching for the remote to turn it down because your scared this can't be good and it must be about to self destruct or something as your feeling vibrations through the concrete floor and the sliding doors are rattling and you haven't experienced this at home before. I contacted Nathan to ensure I can't do damage to it and thinking maybe I had it under stress at 2db hot to which his response was essentially nope you won't hurt it crank it up and enjoy it.
Very impressed and happy with my purchase and feeling similar shame wishing the wife and kids would leave the house and go somewhere so I can crank it up and enjoy some movies.

Wanted to give everyone a sneak peak at what Nathan is building for me. Back around March I placed an order for a pair of 18.0 subwoofers in Curly Walnut, finished in medium stain with high gloss filled finish. I ordered the magnetic speaker grills. I hated the look of the standard black cloth as I felt it kind of diminished the look of the subwoofers. So I asked Nathan if he would create some speaker grills using a vintage looking speaker grill cloth. I wanted to go for a retro look, something like you see on guitar amps. Kind of like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00..._1470442977026.

I did some searching and I found a company on the internet which sold vintage style speaker grill cloth: https://acousticalsolutions.com/prod...-grille-cloth/. The cloth I chose was P2703 which I thought looked best with medium finish for the subwoofer.

The grill that Nathan built is in 2 pieces, the outer frame is made of solid walnut and the inner is removalable, so that the speaker cloth can be easily replaced if needed. Nathan sent me a picture of what one of the grills looks like: https://www.instagram.com/p/BIvvZqgjYXs/. I think Nathan has outdone himself and created the retro look I wanted. They look amazing. I should have the subwoofers in hand within the next 2 weeks.

The only reason to go with a smaller cone, 15" or 12", would be to decrease enclosure size if you have a size limitation, although you would then get a proportional decrease in overall output. We can and have done 15" and 12" custom subs with curved side enclosures. Based on either our 18.0 or 18.0C platform sharing the same amplifier and driver motor structure the cost remains about the same, the savings from smaller enclosure offsets the added cost of the custom aspect.
IMO, Funk Audio makes the only true furniture grade speakers and subs in the ID world. Very impressive work and your products fill an ID void for people who want nice looking, high quality cabinets for display purposes in multipurpose rooms. I'm pretty sure the drivers you use are top of the line as well.

As for musicality, I agree that your subs would compare favorably with any sub "out there" as subwoofer bass is all about location and proper integration with the other speakers. With proper setup and when played within their limits, they should be nearly indistinguishable. I really don't get the bigger is better thang that's going on in the ID sub driver world but I guess it's not mine to get.

Anxiety is contagious, please keep yours to yourself.

My sub arrived but I'm painfully at work. Package appears in great shape....my missus examined it and snapped this pic.
