    No idea on the company, but I like that they specified the crossover at 497 cycles. I often thought 500 sounded too high:)

    HB5000 Sub amp OK for US use?

    My Media room build is on pause while I wait for acoustic panels to be built, so I thought I’d scab together a quick system and watch a few movies. I’ve had a Japanese market HB5000 sub for a few...

    I’m really glad those are in FL, and not on the west coast. If they were west, I’d probably be trying to figure out how to get one or two of them into my shop without my wife knowing:)
