Comments about Cerwin-Vega TS-42 21" Folded Horn Subwoofer:

I love this thing. It sounds awesome. It can produce very low bass that I have never heard before. I play it then step out side and my whole house sounds like it going to collapse. My deaf mother felt the bass from inside her bedroom in the house next door. Kids from the trailer park across the block came running over to see what was going on. I love the way it sounds. Its this that should really be named the earthquake. after I play around with it I honestly feal uneasy / physically shaken up.
I have not had the chance to use it at a gig yet. It's a lot bigger that I thought it would be even though I knew the dimensions. It's humongous, it's the biggest speaker I have ever seen. I love it and I am going to try to get another one.
