    Nah. If he had four maybe they'd be identifying the body. If he had twelve there wouldn't be any pieces left big enough to identify....

    Just replaced a DIY 25 litre 10" Audax, with a 100 litre 12" Shiva.

    Quite impressive the difference, now just got to work out someway of making it look a bit less intrusive, hhmm maybe it would look better if it wasn't bare MDF !

    Is that all? What's happened to Godzilla?:laugh:

    Personally I'm stuck with my PS1000 - though given my habit for losing octogenarians on an all too regular basis I feel an upgrade coming on.:devil:

    Mark, as Ian mentioned. Redline had a pair of these beasties running with Moon front end and they were incredible. The best mini sub I've ever heard.
    Roll on tomorrow :smoke:

    Vibe Stealth Beta.

    I think it is called Stealth because it comes in a lovely cream colour that blends in with my walls.:smashin:

    as for the sound...

    well, I need to get avia out and play with it properly,
    But if I find it doesn't do the biz, it'll be out :nono:

    eric, hi-fi choice have just given the velodyne spl 800 4* for sound but in the same review have given the rel q150e a best buy-I really would like to hear your thoghts on this for obvious reasons.

    forgot to answer the original question-2x paradigm pdr10s 1x rattle next door but one servo-15.

    Unfortunately Hi Fi Choice isn't doing anything to help build the credibility of our british AV press. The picture they have of the Velo SPL 800 isn't even a Velodyne. It's a Ruark Vita. Now some folks will see the V logo and assume it's a Velo. They will also assume from the picture that the Velo is a downward firer which of course it isn't.
    There was a great quote by a good friend the other day that if REL were to stuff a dead chicken into a REL 150 it would still get 5 stars. I've always been of the opinion that they have always sounded like they contained dead chickens anyway.

    The fact is, they take a sub (the Velo SPL800) with 4 times more power (600 watts), 10-15 times less distortion (and thats not out by much), and mark the REL 150 above it.
    You've got to laugh really.

    I would have actually prefered them to give the Velo one or two stars instead of the four as four is more believable. Shame that.
    Oh well, hope we get one star next time :D
