WOW, what timing. I too was just getting ready to post the question about this model. It seems to be a very good bargin, and is very inexpensive for what you get. It's sold by a fellow in Santa Clara, California (think Silicon Valley),
and I'm thinking that if it turns out to be as good as what he claims it to be, it is a natural for a first sub for many people, as well as something for most of us in the hobby. It's small enough to toss in the back seat of the car for a run to the local lake on short notice.
I sent him a message on eBay, asking him if he belonged to the Subcommittee, or if he checked this site, but have yet to receive a reply. Any information on the model or the seller would be much appreciated.
