I bought this Paradigm sub after shopping around for a good period of time. Despite its lack of a sub output to add a second sub, and the relatively modest connections and bells and whistles on the rear panel, I was won over by its depth, musicality, and sound quality. I knew I was buying possibly the best sub for the price, but I had no idea just how good it would be matched with my system. This sub has literally made my entire system sound better, its musicality blending perfectly with my mixed bag of other speakers. Its power terrifies me, as I can almost knock stuff off the walls at mere half power. I've never been over 60% on the gain, and I'm afraid to even try it! Movie soundtracks sound great and hit hard, and the sub never chokes, even with the most abusive bass sounds. Music sounds great. The sub brings out the more subtle parts of bass guitar that I had missed with my earlier sub, and even with my Boston subs in my car, which used to be my real reference system. I would recommend this sub to anyone looking for the best quality bang for the buck. I'm nothing less than totally happy with this purchase, and I can't imagine replacing this sub. I spent $200 on my first Sony sub, and $350 on this one, and the $150 has made all the difference in the world. Honestly, this sub is so much better that it could sell for hundreds more.

After one of my Cerwin Vega subs blew for the second time, i decided to look elseware instead of paying $250+ and waiting 3 months for it to be repaired. Paradigm and Velodyne were my two choices since Mirage were out of my price range. Velodyne isn't as tight and was too big. Paradigm is incredible with it's relatively small box, very very tight and clean response, incredible ability to go down to 20Hz (sometimes i think lower...) with quality sound, and shear volume. It's an incredible subwoofer for the price. Since it's made in Canada there is no additional costs to bringing it over the boarder. The price listed is in Canadian dollars. Very sweet sub. Highly recommended.
So in the end I bought two PDR-12 subs. My twins :)
