Have just finished an exhaustive shootout at my local dealer for a sub under a grand. Having used as much DVD and music material as I could, for me the new M&K subs walked it especially on speed and control. Playing the gunfight on Kevin Costners Open range in DTS was amazing. Apparently these two new subs from M&K even surprised the dealer when he first heard them and considering they're only £700 or £1000 a steal! They even held they're own against the more expensive digital velodynes. Guess you can't argue with the guys who invented Subwoofer design!
