How about Elemental Designs subwoofers??

Any of the A2, A3, A5, A7 series subwoofers.

They are primarily a car audio subwoofer company but have ventured into HT lately. They seem to have good quality components and the enclosures are built rigidly. They seem to be a bargain and have free shipping on the bigger units. They might even offer to lend one to test!
I checked their website and they look interesting. A little bit rough and bulky though. I'll ask if they could lend one or more for a test. The free shipping is inside USA...

When will you be able to resume testing Ilkka?

Since the Finnish winter is long and unpredictable, I'd say my best bet would be late April/early May.

Re: Which subwoofers would you like to see tested?

Assuming the results are going to be reposted from your first test (which will plug acouple of gaps) and ignoring that this is a predominantly American forum, it'd be nice to see a few more budget euro subs tested.

Jamo's SUB250 and SUB300 look like potentially decent VFM. The littleun is only about 300 in the Uk.

Email me when things start to thaw out for you Ilkka and we'll see what we can do. I think you'll be surprised by how much we've pushed things with the new Ultras.

Sure thing. I always like products that can surprise me, positively of course.

Re: Which subwoofers would you like to see tested?

I note the B&W subs are missing from the present line-up. ASW675, 750, 850 etc.

Is there any particular reason for this?

Can subwoofer manufacturers actually demand that you do not test their subs?

I'm still looking forward to your first, full, outdoor IB test!

A DirectServo sub from Rythmik Audio would be great since this technology is patented making it unique and highly recommended for a DIY.

No particular reason other than no B&W owners have offered their subs for testing. I tried to aquire them directly from the Finnish importer of the B&W, but they weren't interested.

AV Talk has tested quite many B&Ws, so you may want to check their forum.

I'm not sure what you mean? Of course they can say what ever they want, but that doesn't mean that I would have to obey them. I'm quite sure 90% of the sub manufacturers wouldn't like me to test their subwoofers. And that's just the reason why I do these tests.

Hmm, that could be a little bit difficult to do...
