The YG Acoustics InVincible 21.2 is a monster subwoofer with twin 21-inch “BilletCore” drivers milled from solid slabs of aircraft-grade aluminum. The $100,000 InVincible 21.2 stands nearly six feet tall and weighs in at 462 pounds. With 6,000 watts of power on board, this sub promises to be the ultimate bass foundation for the world’s best stereo and surround sound systems.

Is this the subwoofer Doc Brown would make for Marty?

The funny thing is that all that design and manufacturing effort, i.e., having an internal enclosure within the cabinet, using aluminum panels, cutting the cone out of an aluminum billet, etc., has no acoustic advantage. It is all done for specsmanship bragging rights.

Seems a bit over the top. If I got the lotto I wouldn't buy one.

I haven't checked into PSA much, but have heard some really good things too.
The “other” sites psa thread has been interesting. Lots of fan boi $hit but between all that is some interesting stuff. Haven’t been there for awhile so it’s probably bogged down by pages of subwoofer “wood” lol.
Still, the drivers Tom is using and the thought process is interesting to read about.

The difference is TomV is quite active on this forum (or least used to) and his posting/marketing style could be described in what I think is quite aggressive/pushy (at past, the subs comparisons were fuzzied to point of borderline dishonest). Dr. SHU, on the other hand, does very little to no marketing at all and let his products speak for themselves. You'd be the judge.
