About Us

Lava Subs is a new company founded by a group of audio engineers with decades of audio experience. So while the company might be new, the management isn’t. Chances are you already know some of the brands we have developed and manufactured. Unfortunately, because of non-compete agreements we can’t disclose those brands. You’ll just have to take our word for it until you hear for youself what we can do.

When you buy audio equipment at your local electronics or big box store, you typically pay at least double the wholesale price. That’s how the retailer makes his money. We design and engineer our subs right here in the USA. Like everyone else, we build them overseas. However, we build them exactly to our specs. The truth is, most of the few subwoofer companies who claim their audio components are built in the USA are using parts they purchased outside the USA.

Why does Lava Subs only offer Subwoofers?
We like subs. and we want to focus on building the best sub offered at the price. A solid Lava 8”, 10” or 12” subwoofer will accommodate virtually every home theater. Depending on room size, you might need more than one sub but you’ll never want or need more than a Lava Sub.

Will You Build Other Speaker Products?
We have engineered and manufactured full lines of audio equipment. We could have picked virtually any audio component and built a quality product. We picked the subwoofer because it fills an important role in every audio system. We want to keep a warehouse full of subs so that when you want one we can deliver. In fact, we’ve got one with your name on it.

We Guarantee What We Sell
You don't have to take our word for it. You need to feel the bass to understand the difference. Experience these subwoofers in your own home. All Lava subwoofers come with a 30-day in-home trial, and free shipping.

All orders received before 4:30pm Pacific time ship the same day you order.

We will have to wait for somebody to buy one and write a review. I am over-subwooferized and don't have the room for it. Otherwise, I would do it.

They have a 30-day money-back guarantee. That minimizes the risk.

There are at least two overtly positive reviews on the Lava line over on AVS Forum. As well as a nice back and forth with one of Lava's reps. It sounds like Lava could be the real deal as far as a new, quality, budget sub.

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1275777&page=2

"I finally had a hour or so to myself last night so I took the time to really spend some quality time listening to the LSP12. Again, I must say, I'm impressed. The sub sounds fantastic."

Additionally, if you continue reading the AVS thread there is an additional discount opportunity.

The 12" looks like a solid choice for the money.

Glad to see someone making a cool new product in the price range!

Plus, the Mrs. might show you the door if you add any MORE Subs to the 10-40 you Already own...

Welcome to the site!

Also, in reading on the AVS Forum, you had a post offering members an Additional 15% off.

Eric - maybe you can give AVS members a special members only coupon

What do you say - 10-15% (or more - we can be greedy) off just for us


Yeah we have absolutely no problem doing that for AVS members. If you are an AVS member simply email us at our customer service email address with your AVS members name so we know you an actual AVS member and we will email you back with your own unique coupon code for 15% off.

Does that work?

Would that also apply to Bluray.com members? I'm sure that would surely help any shoppers in the market for an affordable Sub.

Are you going to be offering anything bigger and more powerful in the future? Any sealed options?

Can you add spikes or feet to the sub, and if so, are they available directly from you?

The weight on the LSP12 on Amazon is actually a little off. The weight is the following for each subwoofer.

LSP08:
Shipping Weight: 30 lbs.
Actual Weight of Sub: 22.83 lbs.

LSP10:
Shipping Weight: 45 lbs.
Actual Weight of Sub:34.25 lbs.

LSP12:
Shipping Weight: 53 lbs.
Actual Weight of Sub: 45.15 lbs.

We may in the future offer a 15" but it is not going to be in the immediate future. It is something that is being discussed but would be a ways out. As for a sealed sub the answer is about the same it is being discussed but it won't be in the immediate future.

Yes, the sub comes with rubber feet and the height listed on the site is the height with the feet.
