Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

This thread is the place for all of you Shacksters to get your opinions and/or requests heard so let us know! What subwoofers would you like to see tested in The Sub Zone? Directly below is a list of tentative commitments and requests that we currently have out to sub manufacturers.

Tentative Commitments / In Hand: These are companies who have given us a firm date on shipping us the subwoofer or we have the subwoofer in hand for testing and/or review.
  • KEN KREISEL DXD-12012
  • KEN KREISEL DXD-808
  • Rhythmik F12G (from GR Research)
  • Paradigm SUB 2
  • Rhythmik FV15HP
  • Sunfire Atmos
  • Atlantic Technology 642e SB
  • Velodyne Optimum
  • Genelec HTS4B


Manufacturer Subs Requested: These are companies we have contacted and they have either not responded or we are pending confirmation of a date. In some cases they have told us they might consider something later on, so we leave them on the list. Very rarely do we get outright denied, instead they will just keep putting us off for one reason or another.
  • Paradigm
  • Martin Logan
  • Legacy
  • Lava
  • HSU Research
  • Earthquake
  • AperionAudio
  • JL Audio
  • Outlaw
  • JTR
  • Seaton
  • TC Sounds

Regards,
Dale Rasco

I am not sure if I have seen comprehensive testing like you do of a JL Audio sub. I did have a F113 and it was one of the most accurate subs I have owned from a commercial sub company.

The F113 would be an excellent choice. I am looking forward to seeing the KEN KREISEL DXD-12012, which I hope can be arranged.

The F113 and the DXD12012 would both be nice to get into the sub zone.

I'd love to see the Seaton Submersive HP tested but I think that would only be possible if an owner lends you one. If only you were a short driving distance away!

re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

I would eventually like to see tests of commercial subs across budget levels, i.e. lower, mid, higher as it seems many members want a sub to go deep, with output being of secondary concern. It could help those that want deep bass, without having a deep wallet, but possibly able to add an additional matching sub later to achieve desired spl (and smoothing room response too).

The DXD-12012, Submersive and even the JTR offings would be nice. I would like to get the scoop on the DXD12012 as it is a new sub from a veteran of the sub game. The Submersive and JTR Captivator get a lot of pub from various GTG's but it would be nice to have them both tested under the same conditions by Dale.

The more that I think about it the more I really like the idea of the Sub Zone to have consistent measurements of subs all in one spot. It really adds more credibility knowing it is coming from a trusted source.

re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

I love the new Sub Zone!! As an a/v integrator we always recommend a good sub to round out all surround sound audio systems.

I'd love to see HTS Sub Zone reviews on some of high-end Def Tech and Velodyne subs, plus some in-wall models.

Thanks so much for your great work!

-Robert

Simply Sound Audio Rumba 12".

Although he has suspended production, he will start back up after the new year.

JMan did a review of it and seems like a great subwoofer for the price and size.
