PLEASE NOTE: THIS AD IS FOR A BRAND-NEW (UNPACKED ON 9/11) ADIRE AUDIO RAVA SUBWOOFER IN ABSOLUTELY MINT CONDITION. THE OFFER IS BEING MADE ONLY TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS WILLING TO PICK UP OR DRIVE WITHIN 50 MILES OF MY HOUSE. THANKS FOR LOOKING. So here’s the deal. After much research, soul-searching and reflection, I decided to purchase an Adire Audio Rava subwoofer in the red oak finish. When it arrived on September 11, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the build, looks or overall quality of the subwoofer. And once broken in and dialed in, I couldn’t be happier with the deep bass and output the Rava delivered. This thing is a beast! I don’t even have the volume knob turned up past a third and it will rattle my windows and shake the pictures on my walls on movies with high LFE content. And it blends beautifully with my KEF mains for music, adding just the right amount of depth and solidity to, for example, acoustic bass for jazz, organ and timpani for orchestral works, and electronic bass for rock. But there was a problem. My wife, as is typical with most women, detests the sight of home theater equipment in our family room. “Too Eighties,” was her exact quote after I’d unpacked the Rava. “You’re filling up our whole family room with these huge boxes.” My other subwoofer finalist, the Dayton Titanic 10” kit, is smaller (14” cubed versus 18” cubed) and, given that all my other equipment is black, less obtrusive in its black finish versus the beautiful, near-furniture-grade oak veneer cabinet of the Rava. Even though I might lose a couple of Hz on the low end and get a little less output with the Dayton, it’s a tradeoff I’m willing to make to keep my wife happy. So here’s what I’m proposing to do. I will either sell the Rava for $375 outright to a Southern California buyer willing to pick up in San Diego or meet me halfway within 50 miles of my home ... – OR – ... I will trade the Rava ($428 total cost including shipping) straight up for a brand-new, *fully assembled* Dayton Titanic kit with all receipts, manual and warranty information. Please note, I am NOT willing to pack and ship the Rava, as it is quite large and solidly built, so this offer is being made only to Southern California residents only. This is one terrific sub and, for what I’m asking in return, one hell of a deal.
