    For $45K retail for this "six pack", seems like a deal to me.

    And still doesn't have the displacement of one of the big boy woofers that's out there for 1/5th the money.

    this one is a 'big boy' with large displacement maybe

    but it's not really intended for music applications so much.....not relevant to the finer points of musical enjoyment.

    but if moving doors or reproducing helicopter noise, or tearing down buildings is your thing........

    Hello, Mike. I have always had the impression based upon reading only that the built in to the room rotary woofer was the lowest hitting, most accurate, most musical sub out there. Though I have never heard one (yet).

    Is this not the case?

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I did hear one once at a show. I have heard the same thing as far as it's performance. but it's like playing with dynamite. it can break stuff....very large stuff....kinda like a earthquake....hard to exactly control what it does. It's not a relevant product for a serious music system other than a curiosity. it is more a home theatre type product.

    I cannot imagine trying to integrate it with another subwoofer for music. you could do it.....but could you do it well?
