Did you guys give ANY consideration to the price? It would cost 4X the price to buy a HSU or Rythmik. After hearing the Klipsch and the fact that it’s wireless, it’s a FANTASTIC deal under $300.
I’m assuming since you’re satisfied with the Klipsch you’ve never owned a “real” sub. You wouldn’t think twice about the price after watching Blade Runner 2049 w/ a 15” Rythmik.
Everyone, at first, is under the impression that a bigger more expensive sub will break the windows & dial 911 randomly on your phone & the driver will have such excursion that it will fly out & punch your neighbor in the face but, that’s not really the case.
Sure a bigger better sub can
play louder but, that’s what the gain is for, you can always turn it down. There’s multiple reasons for getting a quality sub.. a flat frequency response, quality bass, deeper extension, & extra headroom. I’m just assuming you don’t listen at reference levels, so having a quality sub means you can have great bass w/out ear bashing volumes; this is called running your sub “hot”. It’s where the sub is calibrated louder than the rest of your system. Hence you’re setup is not playing at concert levels but, you still have that rumble.
But, I get it.. I really do. Whenever I first started I bought a Polk PSW505 & thought that was outlandish & I’d never buy another sub in my life. A little over a half a year later I’ve spent $1,800+ on subs alone. I actually just finished my first DIY 18”. It’s 30” W x 21” D x 30” H in my little 9x15 room.
Once you get a taste for quality price is just a piece of paper; or an afterthought. Budget? **** a budget.
Nevertheless if you are happy, then more power to you. One piece of advice, put this URL in your blacklist on your browser & never look back.
..& if you decide to stay, well, you could save yourself money from going straight to Rythmik HQ & picking the sub up. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
