    I wanted to find out if anyone on this forum has auditioned this sub. If I'm not mistaken, Dr. Hsu designed it. It sells for $599 (Which is the price of my PB1-ISD), so I wanted to know how this thing compares.

    Thanks!

    It is essentially an STF-3 clone. See the hotlink in my signature block to see how it stacks up to your subwoofer.

    Thanks Ed! AWESOME review!!!!
    Are there any advantages with Outlaw having the ports placed on the bottom of the sub?

    That is unlikely. The ports will handle output primarily in the 23-28 Hz region, and bass waves in that bandwidth are long, omni-directional, and cannot be absorbed by carpeting, etc. It was probably a trade dress issue (like the glass top) more than anything, to further visually distinguish the LFM-1 from the STF-3.
