I love my cylinder subwoofers. They take up less floor space than comparable box subwoofers, and are lighter and easier to move (both because of weight, and because the cylinder shape is easy to grab). I got rid of my box subwoofers and only have cylinder ones now. I don't feel the need to upgrade, so what I want is of little interest to manufacturers, though if I ever needed to replace a subwoofer, I would only consider a cylinder model, and would buy a used cylinder before going with a box model from anyone, if they stop making cylinder subwoofers.
I think most people don't try them and so they don't realize how great they are. They buy a box because that is what they are used to thinking of, and then it takes up more floor space than a cylinder that would perform as well. Or they settle for a lesser subwoofer because of their floorspace, not thinking about the fact that the space above a subwoofer is typically just wasted space.
God willing, we will prevail in peace and freedom from fear and in true health through the purity and essence of our natural fluids. God bless you all.
