Not sure why people are so surprised. the thread on avs about this thing pretty much suggested what this sub would be like in the first few days.
It's also been well known that Dr Hsu doesn't think much of bass below 25hz.
I think people just sort of want vindication that Hsu invented some world beating driver. That would defy the law of physics.
Don't let the review bias your impressions. First of all, sealing this sub should really improve the damping issue that Paul ran into with the two ports open. Personally I would have run this sub with only the low tuning(one port open) if i'm going to run it portedat all. Unfortunately in this world output rules, not sound quality so the sub was tested in its highest tuned mode.
wow..i should have kept my paradigm sub12....i think i will tell the fedex guy to go back to california with it and i will order the rythmik....haha...damn
Listen to it for yourself. I'm sure it's a well designed speaker.
