    This is probably a dumb question but i've looked and can't find the answer. Do I need to buy a "rumble box" in addition to buying a BFD for use with my subwoofer(going to be SVS 16-46CS+)??? Or is there some setting where it cuts out the way down low information right on the BFD making a "rumble box" moot? Thanks.

    No..the BFD does not have a rumble filter. You could put a deep cut at 20hz (lower limit of BFD), but it would be too high and would affect the bottom octave.

    Thanks for the reply, so I guess this means I have to get both, running the sub from my reciever to the "rumble box" to the BFD to the Amp to the Sub. Whew, that's a lot of stops on the way to sound!!!

    Is there such thing as a "rumble" box? Always bothered me that the BFD didn't have this. Reasonably priced?

    They have a rumble box at SVS Website, it's around $159 if you buy an SVS subwoofer, and around $200 if you buy it separately. It has several subsonic filters at 15, 20, and 25. It also has a variable phase control on the box.
    This is the link.

    Jim- Thanks! I was hoping for less than $100, but now that I know such a thing exists, I'll have to check it out.
