Showed up today at my office. Will be reposting in this thread later when i get it home and hooked up. Even though the Partsexpress packing material consisted merely of foam corners and a thin cardboard box, the unit itself made its journey without a flaw. They should really re-pack it using foam pillars as well as the corners as the box got pretty well mashed in that area.
The finish on it is pretty cool looking, almost evil. Anyway i'll see if it makes any sound in just a few hours. hehe
Well, the buzzing worsened until the sub was inaudible. Ithink the voice coil somehow came loose. I didnt even turn the thing up half way. It sounded great for about 8 hours. It goes back to PE today for a refund.
I am now considering a higher end sub. I guess you get what you pay for. Buy cheap, buy twice.
Yeah, got the model sixs pair today. Haven't hooked them up yet, but the packing was much better so i am hoping these will be in perfect working order. They look great anyway. I'll post on them in the speaker section when i get em up and audible.
Yeah, i am extremely dissapointed with Partsexpress and Dayton. Its okay though because I am on my money saving way to a VTF from HSU. Hopefully the vtf-3 MK2. It all depends on how much longer i can listen to my Sony 100w sub.
BTW, I am trying to decide between the Acoustech H-100 and something HSU. I do 50/50 music and HT. I know the HSU vtf line offers much more customizable sound, but the acoustech appears to be a good quality sub for the price. Plus i have auditioned the H-100 and liked it a lot. I just didnt hear it play any music and i have heard the HSU excels in both HT and Music.
I have to say HSU's solid reputation and service has swayed me towards their products when the time comes for me to get a new sub. However, not having heard any I wouldn't be able to verify all the hype.
