  4. There have been a few of them locally. They SUCK! It's a servo driven sub and is VERY efficient in the mid and upper bass regions, but at extremely low freqs, the motor hangs and stutters. It's a discontinued model and that's why. Samick/Acoustic built them in Korea and imported them trying ride Servodrive's popularity about three years ago. The whole thing is about the size of a small car, but they also can't handle power for squat. I remember trying them out because I was impressed by the specs. They're not accurate.

    The whole "Acoustic revival" that Samick tried to do after they bought the rights to the Acoustic brand name fizzled because most of the stuff was junk. Their biggest contribution was an INSANE amount of product placement in the movie "Josie and the Pussycats." They even stuck Acoustic logos on Marshall guitar amps and EAW monitors.
