I originally thought I was going to go with a paradigm pdr 12 or a definitive sub but since I found this forum I hear nothing but good things about SVS (although I have never heard them). The only thing that bothers me is the material used- cardboard. Does anybody else have a problem with this? What happens if my kid spills some liquid on it???? Does anybody live near the Westport CT area so I can listen to the SVS sub? Thx.
