Hey bigred plz put up as detailed review as you can. I am on the fence between this or an svs. You have a similar audio opinion as I do except I got out of vinyl and decided to go all digital Thanks!

Well after having this sucker for a little bit now I can say without question that I love it!

It's an incredibly good sounding sub. Tight, clean, powerful...everything I have been looking for and it all comes from a small enclosure!. It fits my needs perfectly. I've been on a search for a sub that was great for movies and music. Everyone says the Rythmik is awesome for music, but can lack in output compared to some other subs...Well I can tell you for a fact that this sub has awesome output in my room. It has some serious power, but it maintains its clean sound even when pushing it to the max (gotta love the servo ). I watched Terminator: Salvation today to give it a workout....holy crap did it perform. Talk about slam! With music its amazing. Fast, with a nice punch. It blends with my mains perfectly which is a task I have had troubles with before the F12SE. I'm a happy camper

BTW, I purchased through Ascend Acoustics and they were EXCELLENT. Dina is the main customer service there and she does an incredible job. Thumbs up to them

Hey bigred...how would you compare your Rythmik to the MFW you had? What prompted you to change subs?

I like it a lot more. They MFW-15 was nice, but it was hard to tame the boominess it had at times. It had some nice output, but the SQ between the two is no comparison. The MFW would bottom out at times as well. For music, the MFW just did not cut. The Rythmik was definately a step up. Bryan at Rythmik also just released a E15 which is a front firing 15" with a slightly smaller profile than the F15. They are available with a 600 watt class H amp now. These will provide the output that people with large rooms need. The finish quality on my Rythmik is also top notch. That piano finish is serious business compared to many companies version of piano black (orange peel effect).

EDIT: its not like the MFW-15 is a bad sub though. I liked it a lot. But there is definately a difference between the two and I prefer the Rythmik in my system

They are worth it. I'm planning to start work on refinishing my subs. I'm actually thinking about going with the same piano black I used with my speakers, but I could go with a wood veneer and a nice stain as well. I haven't made up my mind yet. What do you guys think? I was leaning toward the black finish because the new sub risers I'm building for them are using the red stain I used on my speakers and I think they would look nice together. I could do a 1/2 and 1/2 like I did with my speakers. Veneer a couple sides and paint the rest piano black. I just I might just stick with the piano finish tho.

If you could do piano black finishes for the subs, I'd imagine they'd look as great as your speakers.

I'm going to get some pricing on some airbrushing. I never plan to sell the subs so I might as well make them look awesome. I want to stick with the piano black finish, but I think I'm going to add some airbrushed artwork before I apply the clear coats. I don't know what I want to add tho. I was thinking of an instrument, or something related to music. The flames are a classic standby, but I'm going to leave them on the back burner unless I can't think of something better.

Coming from someone else that has built their own speakers I must agree with PBM. I do however have one little question...... Why did you build the mains identical, instead of mirror images of each other?

It was a mistake. It only hurts off axis sound, but there aren't any off axis listening positions in my room. I was thinking about rerouting it, but I planned to build a new pair anyways so I wasn't too worried about it. This was my first time building speakers so I just wanted to refine the technique. I'm planning to start work on a new pair of speakers near the end of this year. Right now at the top of the list are:



We'll see if I change my mind or a new design comes along before then.

This D15SE looks very serious; the photo at Rythmik site doesn't do its justice.



This D15SE (saving up $$$) will go well with my mini. I don't think my condo neighbors would be very appreciated.

I'm planning on building two DS15 clones from Rythmik custom installation kits, with the XLR amp option, sometime this summer. I appreciate all the "rave" reviews. The Behringer DSP1124 is already racked up and waiting.

I haven't decided how to finish them yet. Piano black would be nice but the dust is out of control here. I'd have a shiny cat outline surrounded by dust. I'm also considering cherry veneer to match my main speakers - have no experience with veneer though. Have even considered having them sprayed with polyurethane bedliner.

I may be a little late to the party, I've been busy as hell. I've been thinking about refinishing my subs and one of the top candidates right now is:

They have a lot of great finishes, you should take it into consideration.
