I'm sick. Sick and tired of wimpy, overpriced bass. Sick of paying upwards of $1,200 for 170 watt, badly designed subwoofers (Definitive Technology comes to mind). The best sub I've managed to get around here is a 12" Velodyne CHT sub, which "sounds nice", but had to pay close to 2x the retail price in order to own. I want an SVS sub. I want it BADLY. And I want to bring it here LEGALLY. Problem is, I live in Mexico. So I have less choices. Here are my options: 1) Import it legally. Costs: I dunno. $100 shipping? Maybe more. 100% in taxes? Close - maybe it's more. Customs fees, etc.? Add some $50. No way. 2) Have it shipped to the States. My sister lives there, she's in the process of becoming an american citizen. Maybe she could bring it back to me, declaring it as an used furniture item, and stating its real value. I could investigate it. 3) Have it shipped to the States, visit my sister with my parents, bring the sub back on the plane. I can bring back $300 worth of merchandise. If my parents decide to come with me, I could bring $900 of stuff - which could be just right for 2 powered subs. 4) There is no number 4. I can think of anything else. If anyone has ever imported SVS subs to his home country, I'd surely be glad to know about it. I want to do it legally - but sadly, it seems as if I'll have to be looking for "holes" in the current legislation, since more than 100% taxes is simply an idiotic proposition. Thanks for your help!
