    I just brought that Hydrosonic subwoofer that they were talking about a few days ago. I did some checking on the Internet and these guys are for real. They are really big in Movie theaters and are just getting into the HT
    area. I will write a review once I get it, they said in about 3-4 weeks. They are Sound related technologies and I got the IBS-10. They say you can see your clothes vibrating with this and you feel the vibration thru-out your body not just on the floor.

    I bet you can't wet to get your hands on it.

    Water you going to do if it doesn't perform up to expectations, can you return it?

    Sounds like it'll be a splash hit, hope you it makes you cry a river of joy.

    Hopefully it sounds better than that response graph would indicate. That graph makes me wonder if the hydrosonic and the "servo sub" were measured at different locations in that room.

    Brian,

    Another interesting bit is that in reading that more carefully, I am pretty certain the "servo driven subwoofer" they refer to is an InterSonics SDL-215. This was an early incarnation of ServoDrive. Basically a sealed box with the 15" driven cones from a ContraBass. This product hasn't been sold in over 10 years.

    I agree with you. I question what they are trying to show in with the measurement, but I do get a kick out of them using an old ServoDrive product as comparison.

    ALlow me to remain skeptical. I read the web site (wet site? Chris[​IMG] ) and the theoretical foundation are rather ...ehr.. watery. Looks like just another sub
