    Dude, even the Bose bass modules can produce 20hz (at like 40dB though :o )

    Do you have any idea how long a 20hz wave is? Try 17m (56 ft for you metrically challenged people) he neither has the space nor the power to do it, 200 watts rms, sure he may be able to do one at say -15db off the power rating, but what's the fawking point?

    I love people who buy crap audio and think it's great.

    Um...

    I think you are forgetting the fact that a room provides boundry reinforcement, and in extremely small rooms (1/4 wavelength or less, or dimensions of 14 feet or smaller) the room is totally pressurized @ 20hz.

    The sound pressure levels in a small room are much higher than that in a large room, except when you have standing waves (for obvious reasons).

    And with a loudspeaker that is extremely efficient, 200 watts is plenty to get high output even in a room.

    I haven't done the setup to measure it myself, but corner loaded, 2 meter mic distance and 10% distortion limit measurements of 88-93db @20Hz depending on the review you read...I don't know what you'd expect from blindly looking at the specs, but at $350 it's in the company of much higher priced competition :)

    What makes this better than a regular subwoofer? Deeper, more close to true bass?

    they're good subs, but for that price i could make a sub what could BLOW that thing away in terms or low freq extension and SPL at low frequencies, also response curve ;)

    well for the price it isnt bad at all, its a LOT better than a lot of other subs out there within the same price range, and its prefect for someone who doesnt build their own enclosured or doesnt have time to make a custom one
