    "I love these subs and they are definitely end-game. Being that they are 21 inch they have the ability to go low but still handle any type of movie or music as needed. I would say in the theater room I am 50% movies and 50% music. These subs nail them for both modes. Super clean and powerful. I have these in the basement and I am not kidding the entire house rumbles when I put the volume too high. I'm starting to realize with subs going overkill is the way to go." -spiroh

    "Suffice it to say, I absolutely love them. I upgraded from s3600is. These play cleaner, deeper, and louder. I was flat down to 10Hz with the s3600is and I’m good to 6 with the s42s. There is more tactile feel in the mid bass and obviously more tactile feel where there is no audible sound below 20Hz...Simply put - they are everything I hoped they would be. They are endgame subs for me. In my space I can’t fit more or bigger - and even if I could - I’m not sure what more it could accomplish." -rehr0001

    "Seriously enjoying my S42 IPAL. So much better than the SVS SB16-Ultra it replaced that it isn't even funny. Still haven't gotten the bass traps I ordered and just dialed it in using Audyssey SubEQ. I have it on the 4th white mark on the gain dial. Any higher than that and the dishes in my cupboards rattle. Plenty of low end on this puppy. Played Tron Legacy and that put a huge smile on my face. Thank you Tom from the bottom of my LFE. Gonna boot the server up this weekend and que up Blade Runner 2049 and Oblivion." -jevans64

    "The S42 is ridiculous. It does EVERYTHING amazing except being easy to move around. 

    more ULF than >98% of vented subs ✔

    infinite clean, crisp midbass ✔

    only 24" tall ✔

    inert cabinet very useful in living spaces.

    add cost of drivers, amp, cabinet, HW, DSP, shipping, warranty and you realize you can't DIY for less. " -Dockside HT
