It's nice to see how speakers look, move and sound (not accurate through youtube, but still fun) before making a purchase.
People like youthman have really started a lot of people down their paths to loving subwoofers and sound.

I should apologize to both of you for not being transparent enough in my sarcasm on that post. I shall transgress a shade. While some of it does in fact take merit, I was simply messing around... I respect anyone and everyone's opinion on the matter. I will however stand by my opinion that dumb videos of a woofer showing it's excursion on youtube aren't worth a darn thing, unless of course it helps to get the name out of the company, in which case
is absolutely correct. My only quam is on so many of those SVS videos, the comments and whatnot are "OMG, check out how awesome that sub is moving" and in reality, that means absolutely nothing to the quality of the build...
Jeff knows what he builds, his customers, demo'ers (sp?), and fans know. Between the main JTR speaker thread, and this thread, just look at the post count, they are two of the more active on the entire site. not trying to say more exposure is a bad thing at all. My main point was that the people that are actually serious about HT aren't perusing YT looking at excursion videos to make their decision.
Also, David, yes I am a little pompous, slightly narcissistic, and at the same time the most humble person you may ever meet. please forgive me for the internet not clearly showing my point
