    Someone correct me if I'm off but I believe It means that the amplifier that is built into the sub is a high current(means it will draw more current as is demanded by the sub) amp that puts out 250watts RMS (essentially what the amp is able to output continually) and is able to ouput 750 watts in peak bursts.
    By the way, I've heard pretty good things about this sub, you won't be disappointed.

    you will love that sub. I have it and it not only rattles the foundation, it is very musical and tight. Every time I listen to music with mine, i find myself impressed all over again.

    LotR TTT Platinum Extended Ver. wouldn't be out until end of Nov. Wait for that one if you can. It will be just like FotR. Extended version. You won't regret it. You get to see it the way the director intended and not the way the Hollywood suits intended for us 'money-cows'. [​IMG]
    You can pre-order it from here which I would highly recommend doing.

    And in keeping this reply in vein with thread, Richard is right.

    Steve, I just noticed that Paradigm doesn't put a frequency response on their subs. Are they peaky or relatively flat? Did you have to eq much? Just asking for future reference if I decide to replace my JBL.

    They are flat. Not peaky or boomy at all. I'm not eq'ing mine at all, but I did move it from the corner to nearer the center of a wall to tame it just a bit. I listened to many subs...polk, velodyne, klipsch, etc, but never found one so tight and accurate on music, yet so powerful and gut wrenching on movies. That being said, I have yet to hear an SVS, I hear they compare favorably with the pw-2200.
    On all my equipment, there is some little question of could I have done better for about the same money...ie, monitor 11 mains instead of monitor 9's, direct surrounds instead of the adp dipoles, 16X9 native DLP instead of 4X3, you get the idea, but my sub is the one piece I've never questioned my choice of. I love it.
