I found a local store today on lunch break, and stopped by to listen to a couple different subs... My thoughts, and lets just say I wasn't impressed...
I heard the HGS-12X. I wasn't impressed at all. It didn't shake me, or move me or even really do much at all. The sales guy kept talking about the great technology on this piece, but it looked like a small little sad box on the ground. This sub is $1700 he said... I just wasn't feeling it.
I also listened to the DLS-4000R. Again, only about $550 for it, but it just felt muffled and not authoritative in the least. Maybe more MUSIC kinda sub, not HT.
I have never heard an SVS, but I was assuming it would Hit me in the chest, make me feel it kinda power... has anyone heard either of the above mentioned subs or own them? If so, what are your thoughts? Again, i'm no expert in sounds, but just my first impressions of them. I want the LOUD, DEEP, Pounding bass... is there actually a sub that will give me that?
