Does he know that SVS's Customer Service is Exemplary, Second to None. The Piece of Mind that your not just buying a Subwoofer. Your part of the SVS Family.\n\nYes, SVS has been brought up. However he feels he can get equal or better value for a lower price. So i am not going to argue with that logic. He also is looking into Rythmik, but that would also be looking at upping his budget.\nOne other thing i probably should have mentioned is, he likes the idea of balanced (xlr) connections. And if you have the ability to use balanced connections that never hurts. Hell i like sticking with balanced connections as much as possible also. \n\nI know he's anxious to get one bought, but hopefully he will take at least a few more days to contemplate all his options and i will continue to look and get recommendations. But i know the feeling, when you got the itch and some cash ready, it's kind of hard not to impulse buy. I'm sure like many others here, I've been guilty of that in the past.
