Great. Now I'm tempted to grab a second one and I really can't afford it right now.

I decided to give the SA-WM200 a test run, but it's going back this weekend. The amp is actually 100w, not 75w, but the bass is horribly anemic. I'm having a difficult time finding a WM40 locally that isn't a customer return, so I'm not sure what I'll do about a sub.
He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

Guys, you can still get this sub from Sears. I picked mine up a mere two days ago. It is not featured on the website, and most stores don't carry any stock on hand, but any Sears store can still special order it for you....for now.
$129 plus tax on clearance as well.

i got my sub at frys electronics for 99.99 on clearance, they were clearing out all sony audio merchandise,

then i went to best buy and showed them my receipt, they said they couldnt price match it because it would go below cost, and they said they need to make a minimum profit percentage, so i said no prob, and they sold it to me for 110 dollars, i think they cut me a deal since, it was the very last one, and on clearance.

im tempted in going to sears and asking them if they price match, but i think 2 sawm40 is enough for my room.

so i got 2 sawm40 subs brand new for a total of 210 dollars thats 105 a subwoofer.

i think i got an awesome deal

I just received my SA-WM40 today from hypeaudio.com for $149.94 shipped. This sub is the shiznit! (especially for 150 bones) The only complaint I have about the sub is that it's rattling some blasted loose board-crap in my wall!!! Does anyone know what I should do about that? For the moment, the sub is about a foot from the rattling wall since I only have a 6' cord and it's running around my entertainment center... but on Monday my 2.5M (8.something ft) cord is coming in... when I get my cord I guess I could move my sub the extra 2 feet away from the wall, but I don't want to sacrifice any bass or volume in the process. Any other ideas of what I should do? The driver is facing away from the wall and the port is facing towards it. Should I turn the sub around? Anywho, this sub has performed outstanding so far and I'm about to watch some cheesy action flick (i.e. Triple X, Mission Impossible 2) with lots of explosions to test it out... This sub was definitely worth the 150 bucks since my local Sears was out of them and the Best Buy only had its floor model left. You best get your hands on some of the remaining stock. Looks like this legendary sub's finally being put to rest. Last check of the hypeaudio.com supplier warehouse said the WM40 count was 23. I think I'll go rent Vertical Limit now...
