Being flat to 10Hz means nothing by itself. I can make a $100 sub from a 8" woofer which is technically flat to 10Hz. The trick to be flat to 10Hz with high SPL, good dynamics, and low THD. That, if they managed to acheive it, is a pretty big deal at this price.

The owner's manual actually states it is flat to 15Hz (+/-2dB) with one port closed.

This looks like a pretty nice sub, but I will wait for Ilkka or someone similar to test it.

Thanks, Flint. Thats the kind of information (input) I was hoping to get.

Well after spending several hours on AVS forums reading about this new Sub, it appears to be the best offering HSU has ever had. Since I do not have the time or energy right now to tackle an IB, I decided to pull the trigger and see what a pair of these can do. If for whatever reason these are not to my liking, it doesn't seem as if I'll have any trouble at all re-selling these. Pauly, get ready to head up in a week or so and bring TrueRTA!! We're gonna be having some fun... :music-listening:

What do you think your system is lacking in the bass department? I was rather impressed with how well the PB13 performed.

And another thing.... I don't see any outputs on the sub's amp. So if your plan is to use them as stereo subs would't you need an external crossover?

If I may, he no longer has the Ultra.

To do so, I believe he'd have to set his speakers to full range and use the high level connections.

But he sold the Ultra for a reason right? What was he looking for?

Okay... but there is no high level output that I can see. So how is he going to get the crossed-over signal to the speakers? I'm clearly missing something.

I guess that's for him to address.

OK, I see now that those high level connections are inputs only. You're right - there is absolutely no output of any kind on that amp. Unless he has stereo sub outs on his processor, he can't have stereo subs without some sort of outboard crossover. Good catch.

Can the sub outs on the 5507 be set to L/R channels? I know you know this but for the sake of anyone following that may not... you need independent channels for a true stereo sub application.

If so where does the LFE channel, and the crossed-over bass for the surround channels go?

Out of curiosity, are those left/right stereo outs or just dual mono outs, effectively eliminating the need for a Y splitter?

Cool. ~ Anxious to get your feedback on how it works out for you, etc, Batman.

Hope you're happy with them. . . . All indications I've come across indicates you will be.

Pauly, correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I remember you and I determined that the outputs were in fact dual mono.

What do I think a pair of these will do? They will cause you to have all the following reactions:

:banana-dance: :music-rockout: :scared-eek: :happy-smileygiantred:

:laughing-rolling:

and your house to implode. I mean if this thing even matches (let alone that it may very well exceed) the capability of the PBU, two of these on that scene from Matrix: Revolutions would be insane.
