I just have to ask those of you with great knowledge and past experience, as far as purchasing a brand new subwoofer, shipped to your door, for a total cost of $650, can this subwoofer be beat at a price-to-performance battle?

Well said Graphicguy.
I started with a bad experience at AV123. Mark S made it right for me. I just received my new A stock MFW-15. After assurances that the sub was tested, it came with the dreaded hum (guess the new amps while in production have not hit the streets yet). The hum is not ground loop and took about 30 minutes to fix but the sub sounds great.
Will hold onto my old sub in case the amp goes. I am kinda hopping is does so I can get one of the new ones.
But, this is a very nice sub with great extension and output.

I've had my MFW-15 for a year and I have had no problems with its performance. I actually just got around to buying a much longer sub cable and have tried different room placements and I believe I have now found the "sweet spot". This sub can be very subtle when needed but when called on to do the down and dirty rumbles it delivers with authority. I love my MFW-15 and would recommend it to anyone looking for a sub in its price range. I'd put my MFW-15 up against the A5-350 any day and I'm sure that mine would pound the eD into the ground (IMHO).

theelviscerator, that is a good deal that you got, however, this is not what is officially offered to the public for a new subwoofer. I do not know if you bought a b-stock, which is not technically brand new, or if you just got one hell of a deal. I called AV123 earlier and spoke with a gentlemen that informed me they currently only have 1 b-stock mfw 15 in one of the "special" finishes. With the 20% discount it was $639 plus $130 shipping for a total of $769. This is quite a bit more than the $650 total.
graphicguy, thanks for the tip, I might give them another call.
thank you to everyone for the input, but so far I feel that majority of you feel that if the A5-350 is not the winner, its one heck of a competitor.

Did you do the "place the sub in your primary viewing seat and crawl around on your hands and knees in the room to see where the best bass was" setup?
If your top concern is price (say within $100, or so), then you'd be hard pressed to do better than the SVS PB 12 NSD, and particularly the SVS PC 12 NSD. Decent looking, too. But, if you don't care about the finish, and want good performance, the eD A5 would be tough to beat.
