Default Rythmik Sub Kit

I want to build a really good (great sub) is this the one? Someone keeps telling me these are as good as anything you can buy. What do you think? I will be using it with electrstatics.

Looks like a great kit to me. Haven't heard it though. As good as anything you can buy, I think not, there are some incredible subs on the market. As good as anything you can by at the price, quite probably.

I'm using the DS-12 kit and am really happy with it, plenty of output for my room and goes very deep (flat output to 10Hz in my room with f3 at 7Hz )
Sounds good too

Will this be used for HT or music only?
How big is your room?

I've built the 12", and like FullThrottle said, this thing sounds GOOD. The only commercial sub I've compared it with is the HSU VTF-2, the Rythmik bested it in both output and SQ, which is alot more important to me than output. This is just MY opinion.

Servo-based sub. I've never personally experience one, but I'd expect it to be good. From dabbling in my own servo adventures, I'd recommend one. The owner (or someone related to the company) frequents the forums.

I built a sub based on two of the kits. I love it.... very clean sound with incredible extension.

Someone knows what they are talking about, although you can certainly buy louder subs. SQ is on par with the very best.
For the best integration with a full ranged dipole, a relatively low xo should be used <60hz, so that the dipoles modal response can be best utilized. A pair laterally close to mains and similar radial distance would be nearly ideal.

cheers,

AJ

I have also just built one using the Kit #1 option. The sound is the best I have had in my house and it is excellent for both music and HT. Brian is great to work with and provides a really nice kit.

How much have you put into the rest fo your system? It woudl be kinda silly to build a $500-plus sub if you only have $500 in the rest of the system...

note: any subwoofer or speaker should be good for both music and HT. If it isn't, look for another product.
