A DirectServo sub from Rythmik Audio would be great since this technology is patented making it unique and highly recommended for a DIY.
I'll see what I can do. Unfortunately there is only one Direct Servo sub in Finland that I know of.

I was wondering how the Sony Sa-WX900 compeets in the same price range. The reviews i read the people gave it a 10 out of 10.

M&K MX-350, 5100, VX-1250 & KX-10.

There's very little on-line data for these and it'd be nice to know if they're worth the fuss their owners make, or are the collection of cheap components they look like.

Either way, it'd plug a big hole in the pantheon of on-line sub tests.

The M&K350 has been tested (by Ilkka under another nom de plum) on AV Talk.

Obviously I didn't want to mention this on the M&K thread on AVF.

Re: Which subwoofers would you like to see tested?

Thanks Chris,

I'd forgotten that one. I notice they cocked up the settings. With the THX EQ engaged, the LF distortion figures look artificially good and even then they don't look great when pushed.

I am as interested in the littluns as the bigguns. I'd like to see what the 'famed' M&K ability to integrate with tiny satellites is based on, other than owner anecdote.

Time to bring it up to date with the SFB drivers too, me thinks!

Cheers,

Russell

Re: Which subwoofers would you like to see tested?

Have any been done on Bose? With some obvious prejudices, I'd like to know how they perform in the real world, especially since they (to my knowledge) do not post charts/data themselves.

To be strictly accurate:

I have never been a nom de plum of Ilkka.

We on AV Talk started testing subwoofers somewhat before Ilkka did.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Yes, we did screw up the settings on the MX350. One can only be in so many places at the same time on a testing day. Besides, he who never made a mistake never did anything.
