hit up this link to see what they said about it!!

http://caraudiomag.c...ubwoofer-review


its pretty much what i expected. He talks about the SQ at low volumes being "so-so" but as the power increased it was MUCH better. Thats what i figured with a woofer that is conservatively rated at 3500w. We all know its not an SQ driver but as long as Vance says it sounds good at HIGH volumes, thats good enough for me. Thats how i feel about it as well. I wouldnt buy the SMD if i was looking for just a small, low powered system geared towards easy listening, but if you like loud AND you want it to sound good, then its not a bad choice :)

read up, its a long review!

In my opinion that is like taking a top fuel rail car and giving it a review compared to a luxury car...

good review yes. Great review no. Even Vance said he would have liked to see it at its rms level but they didnt have the power on hand . Wasnt his fault though the SMD is out of their normal scope of woofer they review.

I have to agree with the other guys. Taking the SMD and testing it on 1100 watts per coil (which is like 1/3rd of what Steve gives his) is kinda weak. I really wish they had stepped up and at least given it full RMS rating. I'm sure they were impressed but I was disappointed by that part of the review. They did have lots of good things to say about Steve and AA though :yahoo:

wtf is lolcats?

I'd def get a fat hooker if i had to resort to that kinda thing. I feel like they'd be grateful and work harder. Also its more bang for my buck, more real estate for my dollar if you catch my drift. its like the Costco of streetwalkers.

I was hoping for 150 :(.

I was hoping she would let me put it in her butt

it was an OK review -

i mean they had lots of good things to say, didnt have the equipment to test it the way it needed to be tested.....but overall it wasnt too bad.

DB Don is got one for review. I'm sure he's going to be able to thrash that thing a good bit and has the knowledge to write a good review.

Exactly why I did not say great review :drink40:

If you think about it they said SQ was better with more power but they were under powering it, now if they would have gave it rated power the SQ would have been better at lower volume.
