    I've researched some real words and their meanings. If there is a new BK sub in the offing, here are some of the words ending in 'olith' and the potential applications for such a sub:

    Acrolith - Not very exciting, but useful in a musical supporting role. For you construction types, yes I know it's Acrow, but it was as close as I could get.

    Discolith - Not terribly accurate, but favoured by the dance music crowd for it's rythmic abilities and ability to deliver some kick. Gives up at 50Hz.

    Cardiolith - Bass to make the heart beat faster. Not for the infirm.

    Granolith - Five people to get it out of the box.

    Pleurolith - At least two required to give the desired in room response.

    Protolith - The preproduction one. Not pictured above. EDIT: At least is was pictured above before Reg gave this post it's natural home.

    Aerolith - Only plays formula rock, but somehow, when you need it, it's the best sub on the planet.

    Angiolith - Required to cure the effects of the Cardiolith. Possibly a compatability issue in the same room. One for AV, one for stereo?

    Neolith - Carved from stone. Underdeveloped and possibly a bit brutal. One for the red meat eaters, but it'll make you feel like a MAN!

    Oolith - Carved from pure calcium carbonate. One for the esoteric who believe there are stone cabinet materials that are superior to everything that modern technology and empiric measurement has provided.

    Paleolith - Back to first principles sub. As in before subs were invented volcanos went BOOOOM!!!!

    Urolith - Goddam! This thing goes so deep, it moves my bladder.

    Hysterolith - REL clone that causes mass uproar if it's not to your taste and curse you for suggesting so!

    Microlith - D8 clone. Fun, but crap.

    Spermolith - :eek: I just can't.:blush:

    Biolith - Made from renewable fair trade resources. Costs twice as much and delivers what you already had. Clear conscience allows you to leave it on standby as you've already done your 'bit'.

    Carbolith - See Oolith, but blacker.

    Pisolith - :)

    That's for starters. Any contributions with invalid humorous meanings, will immediately receive pointed fingers and a demeaning response.

    Regolith - Great sub, but you frequently return to find it's not where you left it.

    Russell

    PS. Yes, for you Geologists, I do realise there is such a thing as regolith, but this thread is all about fun, fun, fun!!!!

    At last we have a place.:devil:

    Indeed! General chat for bass heads. Me thinks Reg has created a monster.:)

    Come forth my beauties and multiply!

    It should see lots of Nimby/Angel Eyes action.:rolleyes:

    Timbolith - A sub that can be squeezed into a small corner and still work. Needs amplifiers placed on top to hold it down.:)
