I run twin Outlaw EX subs and will say that they can deliver the goods with authority. The variable tuning allows the user to decide between max output or max extension, very cool. When on sale these subs are a real bargain, mine were around $550 each including delivery. Another thing is their fit and finish, these subs are really nice looking! They have rounded corners, and a very nice plexi-glass top that is sure to win over the significant other. There are a lot of subs being introduced lately that boast tremendous output numbers and extremely deep extension. The addictive nature of this hobby gets people excited about ever increased performance, but truth be told few people will ever use >127db output at 16hz! For the majority of HT enthusiasts subs like the Outlaw, Hsu VTF-3.3, etc. are the ideal combination of performance, looks, and price. This doesn't mean I'm not looking at a pair of monster subs in the future............ I just won't tell the wife!
