Salk/Rythmik 15 With Dual 15" Passive Radiators

By Jim Wilson (theJman)




The Salk/Rythmik 15 With Dual 15" Passive Radiators (SSR15) is an awful lot of subwoofer for the money, and I mean that in every sense of the word. About the size of a mini-refrigerator, and weighing approximately what the average male does, makes it such that this one probably won't disappear in too many rooms (its distinct lack of style won't really help much in that regard either). It proudly lives up to the Salk Sound heritage -- meaning the cabinet is rock solid and nearly bullet proof -- so you can completely dismiss any notion of resonance coloring the output. Built using top-shelf components from respected companies, all securely nestled into a hand made cabinet, means what you end up with is a subwoofer that has excellent sound quality and an astonishing amount of deep bass. It's a nearly impossible combination to beat for the asking price. Just be certain to have a friend or two available when it comes time to take delivery of this beast. Trust me on that.

Wow. Looks like an amazing sub. Salk should definitely put up specs and pictures on their site. Way out of my budget though

Great review!

It's hard to imagine a subwoofer that costs almost 2 grand being a bargain, but in this case it's actually true. The SSR15 is able to compete with anything in its price class with regards to output and depth. Nothing, however, would match the solidity of this cabinet. You would have to spend a lot more to equal this thing, assuming you even could.

Great review, Jim ( as usual)..........they should call this unit " the Hulk" ( I think " the Beast" is taken)...

So, when is your hernia surgery scheduled??

I'm waiting until after I send it back. That way I can get all the damage repaired at one time...

Anything is possible I suppose. I did suggest to Jim Salk that he joins the forum so he could address any questions or comments, so perhaps he'll be able to make an appearance at some point.

Thanks Jim, was always interested how these performed… any casual comments compared to other subs you've reviewed recently? Also, are you sure the driver is the DS1510? The rhythmik site specifically states they do not recommend that driver for down-firing subs. with the 600W amp, I'm assuming it is, but just seems odd
