    Well I'm no pro, but what is it that you would like to know Todd? Are you thinking about upgrading a sub that comes with a HTiB or something like that?

    well - i have the Sony and I'm wondering what the specs would be using the standard db meter references, etc...

    i'm upgrading to the Outlaw LFM-1 (as soon as it gets here)

    From what I have been reading, the LFM-1 is going to be a >Major< upgrade over the Sony, in that you can be confident. I'm still not sure what your asking though? Maybe your looking for a general description of the two and how they will differ?

    Congrats on your first real sub. Hope I don't offend any WM-40 users out there[​IMG] I used to have one myself:b

    Probably not a whole lot of "pro" reviews for a ~$200 (~$99 street) sub. I've installed one before. Out of the box, it sounded a bit boomy and not so spectacular, but not bad for the price paid for sure. I'm sure the LFM-1 will be a big improvement.

    Good point John. I should have mentioned that in fairness to the Sony.

    well, i agree with you guys - the Sony was awesome at the $128 that i got it for [​IMG] it served it's purpose, and i JUMPED on the $399 deal for the LFM-1 (b-stock)

    i was curious to see what type of measurements the WM40 can get...

    similar to the reviews that Ed does http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=190398

    i mean, can the WM40 even hit reference levels?

    my buddy just got his B-stock LFM-1, and it scared the crap out of him - so I'm TOTALLY excited to get this sub this week [​IMG]

    well, i finally got my LFM-1 hooked up and ROFL - I put in AOTC during the opening scene - and i "literally" shook a candle off the countertop on the 2nd floor of my house, scared the **** out of my g/f taking a shower

    best $399 i ever spent [​IMG]

    There isn't much financial risk to the end user with a street price of ~ $150, so I doubt you will be seeing many formal reviews of the WM40. The LFM-1 will kill it though, so you certainly made the better choice.
