Re: S7201

You're one of the first, so please do come back and post your thoughts. I enjoy it when companies offer something different. I'm curious to know what it can do.

Re: S7201

Absolutely! I had my eyes several subs, I've been planning on upgrading for awhile now. I had pretty much decided on the Captivator 2400 ULF, but then the S7201 was announced, so here we are. The current plan is to unbox this in my driveway, drag it into my garage for a bit of a break in on some music, then drag it into the house and stick it in the corner where the PB13 Ultra is currently. Yes, this happens to be a tad bigger, but most of the difference is vertical anyhow. I had a conversation about this with my wife before I bought the new sub, she was concerned about the size. My argument was when was the last time we went over in the corner and hung out, that is a punishment for a child. I pointed out the floorspace the PB13 Ultra occupies is pretty substantial already, and the corner honestly looks a bit empty because we have this huge box sitting on the floor but it is only a couple feet tall. This will at least balance out the room a bit... She shook her head and said just get what you want. I love my wife!

I think you're going to love it. I haven't heard bass like this in a home. It is truly powerful and intimidating while being smooth and detailed. There are parts of my house shaking that have never shook before with any other subwoofer (or multiples) I've owned.

Re: S7201

It just got here this afternoon. I've taken quite a few pics so far, I'll post them once I'm done setting things up. I literally just got done moving the PB-13 Ultra out of its place, vacuuming up a embarrassingly messy corner, dragging it out to the garage to clean out yet another corner, and dragging the S7201 from the garage into the house. I unboxed it in the garage, but unfortunately my friend who was helping me had limited time so I haven't hooked it up yet.

The back of my living room is pretty dark, so it's hard to see my sub back in the corner. When I was at Sam's Club today buying a hand-cart to move this beast, across the same aisle they had this little 5-pack of remote controlled LED lights for 20 bucks. They change to 4 different colors, have timers, and even come with all the AAA batteries to get you going. I put a couple back in the cavities behind the subs, and one up on top with my pal (check the link). I'm going back for another pack tomorrow and some velcro to put on the back of these so I can hang them upside down from the carpeting on the inside of the cavities. I just need a couple more up top to illuminate my knick-knack, and maybe one for his buddy across the room too.

If you're looking for an easy way to show off the subs better, check these lights out or something similar. I thought it might look cheesy and car-audio-ish to put lights in there, but it really makes the subs pop.

Re: S7201

Added some sleeving and heat shrink to the wires for a cleaner look. Last pic is the "before" look.

Re: S7201

These video show the S7201's power and driver excursion. The audio gets massively clipped on the camcorder. Nothing but pure, smooth, undistorted bass is audible to the ears.
