Is HTS admin aware of the missing links for the archived sub reviews? Not sure who to contact.
Yes, I informed them. No word yet about possible resolution though.

I hope Ilkaa reviews are resurrected from the dead. There's a treasure trove of info there and it's a shame noon is accessible. I wonder if Ilkaa is still around
Ilkaa provided an invaluable service and his assessments were well regarded, so much so that Genelec hired him. I don't know if he's still there because he doesn't frequent any of the forums I do, so I lost touch with his work.

Thanks. Hopefully with the Fathom F113v2 released this year we will see some objective acoustic testing. I understand that the big commercial players may feel threatened by Internet Direct onslaught, but come on, at least submit your products for full review !!

Are new subwoofer tests still happening on this forum? I note JL Audio Fathom F113 was requested on the first post of this thread (4 years ago!), but has not been tested.

PS - I see Ilkka tested the F113 (older v1) back in 2007, but all the attachment /graphs do not load on any of my browsers (nor do they for any other Ilkka sub test) ?? Are the Ilkaa archives all dead now?
Subwoofer testing is indeed still happening, and on a pretty regular basis as well.

The JL Audio E112 was tested when it first came out, but we haven't gotten anything from the F series line. That's dictated by the manufacturer though, not us; rarely will a company want an older product reviewed because it already has exposure, and it's been a while since the F series has been updated. With few exceptions they want their newer products tested.

I'm seeing the same thing you are with regards to Ilkaa's tests. The forum was converted to different software a few months ago, after HTS was purchased by another company, and a few things like that broke in the process. I'll alert the new owners and see if there's anything that can be done.

For a complete list of past reviews you can use this link. Everything should be there.

Todd Anderson The "SubZone" is no longer active, but Jim Wilson is still reviewing subs. Just look under the review section: Speakers/Subwoofers and you'll see his write-ups.

Re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

I would love to evaluate another studio-class sub, but I don't suspect the manufacturers would be too keen on the idea given this forums HT focus. To be perfectly honest, I found the Bag End to be one of the best sounding subwoofers I've ever heard. The only thing it lacked was output, which was low for something with an 18" driver. Detail, precession, response, were all excellent.
