    You can figure out who that other 3 letter sub company is.
    The company rolled it out at the HE 2006 show, along with another new product, a mid subwoofer. The new bookshelf has a 6.5 inch ported woof and a horn tweeter with projected price of $125, availability, likely by the Holidays.

    Apparently they are going for a sort of 3 way system. Bookshelf crossed over at 80Hz, mid woofer to handle ~50 HZ region and their top of the line sub for the really deep stuff.

    If you can picture the Velodyne DD1812, the mega-buck sub from that venerable company, it might give some idea of what *** is thinking. The 1812 has an 18 inch driver combined with a 12 inch driver in one large cabinet. This beast goes for $10K-$13K.

    *** is apparently trying to offer a similar approach that would require two boxes, but cost perhaps $1,500.

    Back to the new bookshelf. Unfortunately, the ever popular other company, (the one that makes the 20-39PCi that I own), did not have a display at CE 2006. It sure would have made for an interesting comparison.

    Mods, as always, if you have a problem with this post, please just delete it.

    Thanks

    Are you not suppose to disclose the name of the company because the bookshelf is supposed to be kept secret until they make a press release, or are you just trying to make people guess? The only company I can think of is HSU.

    Thanks for the link to the ultimate AV mag article. Sounds like HSU is raising the bar.
