    Outlaw Audio is giving away a LFM-1EX Subwoofer to one (1) lucky entrant! This contest represents a $649 value!

    Our friends at Outlaw Audio are gonna help you Shake Rattle & Slam into the New Year by entering to win a brand new Outlaw LFM-1EX Subwoofer. As you can see in our review and comprehensive measurements, this subwoofer is a sure bet to give your home theater system a shot of adrenaline. Just make sure you install seat belts in your seats if you are our lucky winner at the end of the month!

    What you could win:
    The LFM-1 EX continues the tradition of maximum output, linear response and deep authoritative bass at a value oriented price. Now, you can achieve output to 16 Hz in large listening rooms without emptying your wallet. If you have never experienced truly deep bass, or felt you could never achieve chest pounding bass reproduction in your larger listening room you owe it to your theater to audition the LFM-1 EX.

    What we had to say about the LFM-1ES Subwoofer:

    "Based on our extensive testing, the LFM-1 EX proved to be an overachiever at its mere $650 price tag...Outlaw has knocked this one out of the park as far as we're concerned. Budget conscious sub shoppers looking to fill a large space take note!"

    See responses in bold above. Performance is only so low because I buy online a lot and don't really know performance until after I've bought it.


    My PS3. It's fast and plays Netflix in HD and surround sound (although others do now, too). I wish that the fan noise was quieter, so I've thought about getting a newer player for streaming.

    Class D amplifiers. I've been interested in getting an Outlaw product for years, and my current focus is on getting a Class D amp.

    An AVR. To me it seems the most logical way to go. Instead of selling Marantz have your own branded AVR.

    PS3. I can use it for gaming, Netflix for movies and tv, Music Unlimited for music. It covers all my entertainment needs.
    3) Receivers. I think more competition from a quality maker would greatly help the industry.

    my stand alone streaming device (Apple TV, Roku, etc.)
    I stream most of content from my media client - Netgear NeoTV 550

    3) What new product or product category would you most like to see offered by Outlaw? Why?

    Outlaw have a gaping hole in the subwoofer line up - at about $350-400
    Too many come people to ask us for advice for this price point sub and unfortunately M8 is just too small and LFM-1 Plus is too big and expensive
    I think ported 10 sub with decent 300-400W amp and no hum looks about can something to fill this gap

    my smart TV -> streaming Netflix & Hulu Plus, Samsung LN46C670 LCD TV. I like using the TV over the Bluray player because I dont have to use a separate remote and don't have to turn on another device. I also like the menu interface better on the TV.

    my stand alone streaming device -> streaming Pandora, Squeezebox Touch. My squeezebox is modded and I have a linear power supply, the sound quality from this is much better than my PC that is directly connected to my receiver

    None, I prefer the shiny round stuff -> i do prefer Bluray discs and CDs over streaming due to better audio and video quality. I like streaming for the convenience factor and available titles.


    3) What new product or product category would you most like to see offered by Outlaw? -> Like Adam mentioned, Class D amps. I've been looking at Class D from two manufacturers but since the amps cost $2.5K for 5 channels I have not bought one. Not sure if the parts are expensive or if this is mark up, but if Outlaw make a competitive yet affordable class D amp I would be interested.

    I'm use to read the review made by Audioholics since they are not biased in any way. They are based on real knowledge backed-up by experience and proved veracity.

    I'd have to say that my PS3 and Apple TV are my choices. One of the main details I focus on is reliability and those two have been great so far.

    I have been reading a lot of review on Outlaws electronics and they have surprised me so far. Also their price & performance equals more expensive systems. So, I'm interested on some class D amplifiers.

    My Blu-ray player can stream content, but I don't have it hooked up to my home network. And I have no great desire to do so. It'll just eat into my download/upload cap, and we Canadians have precious little to begin with.

    I honestly would have said subwoofers...I had no idea that they made subs to begin with. I'd love to get some kind of amp or room correction kit from them.

    I wish I could base my picks completely on performance but price must be my main reason.

    I use an Apple TV 2 and I love it. Would be better if it allowed for DTS-HD and TrueHD.

    An AVR would be great! Nothing wrong with some more competition!

    I would like to see a good 2-tuner OTA HD DVR. I get my TV from OTA and the number of available recorders is getting to be close to zero.

      My Samsung blu ray player. Because you turn it on and it's there. It gets netlix. The xbox also does but we don't use that.

    I use a healthy combination of all named, I don't believe I use any one more than another.

    I think a nice high efficency speaker would be nice. With the demise of two other small ID companies who made affordable HE speakers, I think Outlaw could fill in this void nicely. High quality, affordable subwoofers combined with some HE speakers at a very affordable price makes for a nice combo methinks.

    Would love to see some dedicated HT speakers that compete with the likes of Aperion, Ascend, etc. More speaker choices=happier me.

    Currently it's my Xbox 360. I mostly use it for Hulu and Amazon with the occasional stream of music or movies from my laptop. My BR player streams but I'm limited to wireless connection at the moment and my Xbox is the only wireless capable streaming device I've got.

    Product category would have to be your own brand of AVR's. I see it has been mentioned several times already, but you'll have an opportunity to sell some nice, complete theater packages. Give it a nice GUI (responsive, intuitive, pretty to look at), a handsome design and a variety of streaming options built in.

    Most AVR's are passively cooled, put in some time to include some silent active cooling (to allow the receiver to be placed in tight spots or have a super slim design) and you'll have quite the product!

    Other, I just use my HTPC

    One thing I would like to see is a affordable headphone amp. There are a lot of headphone amps on the market that are $200+, but seriously how much does it really cost to manufacture a headphone amplifier? I would like to see a decent one that is less than $100, and preferably 50 to 60.
