Hey Jim - Great to hear you actually bought a sub that you did a review on. My question to you is, do you still own this S1?

Last hows in holding up?

I came across a video off Youtube on test tone patterns and the guy was using dual S1's. I am very tempted at this price and since my JL Audio purchase I became a true fan of sealed subwoofer "again" after testing what a nice high quality sealed subs supposed to sound. Not that ported is not nice, but I just can say sounds different and the different that I like 'better .

Cheers.
I do indeed still own it, but it hasn't gotten much use of late. For the most part I go from one review to the next, with few gaps in between. That means my own personal sub can sit for months unused. I'm starting to write up my notes on the unit I'm currently evaluating though, and after that there's nothing in the queue (several irons in the fire, but no product on its way just yet). There's a very good chance I'll be able to hook it up again shortly and give it a bit of exercise.

Just a quick update... I had a rare gap between reviews so I hooked up my S1 a few weeks ago. It still makes me smile as much as it did last year. AAMOF, I'm listening to my kind of music as I type this - meaning loud, high energy and obnoxious - and it's just as good now as it was then. From what I understand, JTR has made an update since I bought this one so the new version may be even better.

Gotta have a point of reference, and from what I've heard of the S1, it is a worthy touchstone.
