I just purchased a Snell THX-1800 used from Kipnis studios. (At time of writing i believe he has two left to sell, they're listed on ebay if anyone is interested) I couldnt find much information about them online so i decided i would offer a testimonial for the sub. It is REALLY fantastic (I am powering it with a Adcom GFA 555 bridged 600 watts into 8 ohms). I have yet to dial it in for music listening but as far as deep HT bass goes this thing is killer. For $500 i think it would be really hard to beat on the used market. Styling is minimal (i dont think the designers took WAF into account AT ALL) but it's built like a tank at about 120-130 lbs i think. I really could not be happier.

Any other SUB 1800 users out there?


Here are the specs from a 1996 Stereophile review (from what i understand my particular model is the same but manufactured in 2007)
