PA has been around a while, so they aren't a newcomer to HT.I've never heard of this brand. $359 for a powered 15" sub seems too good to be true, but it may be a bargain. Hopefully someone has actually heard it and will post their experience.
You're reading them correctly; there's a pronounced hump from around 50Hz and up, which will often contribute to the "wow factor" a sub has because that's where a lot of the impact in a movies soundtrack is recorded. 105 dB at 31.5 Hz isn't bad, but after that it goes down fast. That's typical for bass reflex subs though - once they hit their tuning frequency they often plunge off a cliff.Unless I'm misreading the graphs on the link that gorb provided, this sub drops-off dramatically below ~50Hz or so. It's down ~10 dB at 30Hz compared to its 80Hz response. Graphs can only tell so much; the real test is how it sounds in your room.
It may very well be a great sub. I guess that I wasn't clear...so my apologies. My points were:you really need to read the link suggested in post no.2. I have 2 PA-120 and they are very good for me. I had a couple of Bic F12 previously and I prefer the PA-120.
Of course their are better subs out there but my opinion is that it is one of the best return on investment available.
...oh, the fit and finish on the sub (the PA-120 anyway) is above average for sure and the ' thing is heavy. Real nice.
hehe, sorry mate, it wasn't directed at you. I should have quoted the OP.It may very well be a great sub. I guess that I wasn't clear...so my apologies. My points were:
1) I have never heard this sub, so I'm not sure HOW it sounds
2) Considering the price it may be a good deal
3) JUST looking at the graphs I think that there may be better options for deep, low bass.
Boston Acoustic has been around since ~1979. They make high quality speakers and were recently bought by another company (D&M) who also own respected names like Denon, Marantz etc.what is to be said about boston acoustic stuff? also i am searching the market for an excellent subwoofer below the 250$ range.
Unfortunately that doesn't exist; there's no such thing as an excellent $250 subwoofer. I'm not sure what brands are available in Japan, but if you can get speakers from a company named Swans you might want to check into those. They make some very nice stuff.also i am searching the market for an excellent subwoofer below the 250$ range.
