HELP! Tough subwoofer decision

Post by Big Nate » Thu Feb 24, 2005 6:30 pm

For a couple of years now I have been trying to save up enough money to get Sunfire's flagship sub. The most recent iteration looks most impressive and I like the changes they have integrated. Then I ran across a brand caled Definitive, and I must state the specs are nice.

Definitive Supercube Reference: (larger sub in the center photo)

The SuperCube® I & II have set new performance standards for high-output ultra-compact subwoofers. With the new SuperCube® Reference, Definitive sets new performance standards for subwoofers period! The Reference incorporates a 14" version of the 10" SuperCube® Technology driver pressure coupled to two 14" infrasonic radiators. All this is powered by an 1800-watt class D amplifier. The result is astounding high-definition bass performance extending effortlessly down below 11 Hz. Each SuperCube® Reference goes lower than and has dynamic impact and output capabilities almost equivalent to that of four SuperCube® subwoofers combined. Slam, pace and rhythm are exemplary as is the ability to actually shake cement slab foundations. A complete complement of inputs and controls, including continuously variable level, high-pass, low-pass and phase controls, speaker and line level in and out, and LFE Direct in, are included on this surprisingly compact and stylish cube. The SuperCube® Reference will be available in piano-gloss black or golden cherry. Available Now!
