Any thoughts on the Premier Acoustic PA-120?

I'm leaning this way on PA-120 as it fits my budget and after looking around a bit. It seems to be getting decent reviews.

Anyways....just wondering if a fellow Shackster has this sub and wouldn't mind tossing out their opinion.

It does and thanks!

My room isn't to big. 17x17 room in the basement,
Me neither. This is the last piece to my first real system. Of course the longer we play this game (and hang out at this site), it won't be long before upgraditis hits us.

Can't wait to see your review. Hopefully mine will ship before tomorrow.
Yeppers! Mine is due on monday (wish it was tomorrow so I could play with it).

Glad to see your pretty happy with it. This will be my first ever sub and if performs moderately...I'm sure I'll be pleased. Keep up the reviews! It's just making long for my delivery even more.
It got here. It's hooked up...and WOW!!

Haft to say at first I was like eh..that's it? Now I was watching 24 on cable and while occasionaly the sub stood out. I really didn't notice it much. Then I watched Castle and the news.

THEN! I figured I should stick in a DVD that I knew had some punch to it. Enter Lord of the Ring's Fellowhip opening 10 minutes.

Oh boy! The wife came stomping down and told me turn it down but instead sat down for a few minutes and just said "well, it works".

Tomorrow I'll get a longer cable and play around with positioning and run the Audessey and try to dial it in. So far I just followed the sub's stock settings. I don't have an SPL meter or anything like that. But to me. If felt like every seating area sounded the same and I was amazed that I could feel the bass (espicially when the army's were marching during LOTR's).

Any suggestions on some movies that I should watch to see what this thing can and can't do? What little I've sampled so far has been tremendous. Nothing sounded stressed or cracked and I was nothing but ear to ear grinning. Can't wait to get the house all to my self and let er' rip. I should probably cue up Batman Begins and Serenity (the only HD-DVD's I will ever own).

People of the Shack...I thank you for all the help.

Off to read up on tweaks and positioning now!

Yeah...I'll make sure to check out those titles as well.

Hey! Let me know if getting an SPL meter is really worth it.
Oh man! The opening scene of Clones was fantastic! I'm going to haft to secure all the pictures in my sports room and do something with all my knick-Knacks on the sports shelf.

Be a shame for them to vibrate off the shelves over time and break.

To think....this all started with me just wanting to watch Jayhawk Hoops on a huge screen.

Ok, to buisness now. I need to get this thing dialed in. Now that I'm over the shock of hearing some kick. I need to run the Audessey and tweak it's positioning a bit. Have fun with that SPL. Lemme know if it's worth buying to tweak out your room.

Have fun!
Same price if you order off ebay or through the Shack. No shipping charge either way. If your plugged into Amazon. You can breeze through checkout.

As for the sub.

I've spent all weekend re-watching my collection of DVD's. It's like seeing or rather hearing them for the 1st time.

Bear in mind I haven't a point of reference as I've never owned a sub before. However if you like clean sounding rumbles and explosion that sound just like they do at the theater. I don't think any non-audiophile/1st time HT owner will be disappointed.
