Doing some sub shopping and found these appear to be lower than previous SDs. Keep in mind that all prices below are for satin black; wood veneer will have an additional cost. I'm thinking that I'll be picking up the STF-2 after reading so many great reviews, such as this one from Audioholics [audioholics.com].

STF-1 $269 + $38 S/H

HSU - buy it for looks, buy it for the crappy caps they put in their amps and refuse to stand by their products.

Wouldn't touch this company with a 10' pole.

You're the first person I've read that didn't like this company.

You can do a simple search and see the problems they have had with capacitors. Sure, the subs sound fine, but the amp build quality is horrible. I replaced the caps in my amp, it worked for about 6 more months until I had more problem with the amp and the glue around the sub surround had problems.

I had barely used the sub over the years and then it had decayed.

The caps were some of the notorious Chinese knockoffs.

Talked to the company and it was pretty much "Pay 250-300 for a new amp, we don't care".

Sorry you had so much trouble with them spierce; although I know it's not much consolation, based on everything else I've ever seen on them, you might have been the exception that fell through the cracks for them. I'm really looking forward to the STF-2.

But then if that were the case you'd think they'd stand behind their product, but they don't. They don't give a rats ass even if you talk to the big poobah. The guy was a pretty big prick when I started saying he used bad caps.

Like, "how dare you say I use substandard parts, even though I do".

He got caught and knew it and then tried to bury the whole thing.

When your amps fry, you'll know why. Enjoy the disposable subwoofer/amps because that's how he looks at them.

actually they have been starting suck quite a bit. I have their stf-2 that I bought back in the day and they were great. sub is still kicking some serious bass. because of that experience I recommended it my friend and he had a terrible experience with them. he finally returned the sub, for which he had to pay the shipping back and ended up getting svs cylinder. it appears they may have cut the corners to save money just like everybody else.

Haven't had it for too long (~5 years) but my VTF-1 is fantastic for the price.

I have an STF-2 that's about 7 years old, the caps finally fried late last year. They wanted about $120 for a new amp but I bought some high end Japanese caps for about $23 total and replaced them myself and sub works fine again. Keep in mind all amps will eventually fail and cap failure is usually the cause as they eventually break down. That doesn't take away from the sound produced by this sub, it's awesome but there are threads floating around about substandard caps in the amps.
