    I'm trying to find out some information on the above as I've seen one for sale that is 3 years old so I'm guessing that it is a Stadium II, rather than the newer III model.

    What I want to know is how good the Stadium II is. Does anyone out there have any experience of this sub? Preumably it's a step up from the very good Storm?

    Many thanks,

    Matt.

    I have details (spec sheet) I can copy for you. Also some 'reviews. Local dealer has a Stadium11 ex dem I think for £700 from £1095 and a Stadium3 at £950. Both cherry.

    You are right in thinking it is the one above the Storm, but it has more in common with the bigger models than the Storm (which is more similar to the Strata but better built).

    I also have some notes somewhwere I will try and look out.

    I've just found out that it's a Stadium I - all of a sudden £550ono doesn't sound like so much of a good deal - after all I could get a Servo 15 for that money (if I could fit one in)!

    I've seen a Stentor going for £600.

    But somehow I don't think it would pass the domestic acceptability test :(.

    Cheers,
    Liam

    Hi

    The stadium 11 was not a bad sub but lacked the drive and balls that some M&K units around the £1K mark offered. It's claim to fame was the ARM loading, which allowed it to work well in audiofile music systems.

    Stadium 111 is a different matter. It seems to be essentially a Stentor 11 without glass inlay and indeed is sufficiently similar to work well with the Stentor in a stereo setup like mine.

    My advice would be to find one of these two at around £850 or stick to the Servo 15 or M&K.
