    Also, if it's got less speaker surface area than a 410 XLT, and is about 8 db less sensitive, how is it supposed to make up for TWO of them? That's advertising for ya.

    Argh! Nobody even placed a bid! Who knows, maybe the price will drop and I'll snatch it up. Better start saving...

  8. Got an e-mail from Mark@accugroove. He responded to the bi-amp question with; go full range with one of these Whappo's whatever's and kick bootie. I wonder if they're as good as some people think? For $1300.oo it would be a baragain,the best I ever had! Still can't afford that yet. work and save, maybe my first retirement check?

    I don't know a darn thing about El Whappos, but I can vouch for the seller. Electric City is the only shop in Wisconsin with a decent selection of high end bass equipment, and they're good guys to boot.
