Price is good, but it seems this is not an authorized dealer, so no warranty

warranty is really overrated these days. Companies always try to not cover it. I've dealt with samsung, sony, polk, etc Except SVS.

At this price, I am taking this risk. I just received my first sub from this seller this morning and ordered another 1 today cheaper.

Got 2 of these from Frys for $399 and $429 with wireless kit for the 2nd. This is not a bad price considering Frys havent had the same deal for over 6 months now.

6 months? More like a year and 6 months. I think around March last year. Im still waiting for it again.

Its been so long since Fry's had the sale, after a year of typing their email discount codes into my cart with this sub in it every day with no deals, I've decided to make my own after reading advice from the last SVS sub sale posted on here.

For anyone considering it, there is tons of information out there, and designs to follow for a product better than Klipsch. Common designs to look up are "Marty sub" and "SonoSub." The Marty one has a few size variations and is fairly basic. The Sonosub design utilizes a Sonotube cardboard form for pouring concrete pillars. There is free software available to help design for whatever driver and configuration you choose. Now instead of trying to find a place to put this Klipsch monstrosity, I can incorporate a tall cylinder, use a short/fat sonosub to double as a speaker stand, or disguise a Marty sub as a down-firing end-table.

If you're not good with woodworking or have limited space for the project, search for "flat packs" which will be a kit to include all of the pieces of wood needed to build a sub. Pre-cut and ready to assemble.

I'll give you a Thumbs Up to try to offset some of the negatives. I also have checked Fry's daily for "the deal" and I got tired of waiting. I pulled the trigger on this (before I saw your post) using several gift cards I had gotten for 10% off. Pretty good deal for me. No warranty, but as another stated, any warranty work I have had done wasn't worth the hassle. Might see about having the seller register the product anyway though - it's worth a shot 🤷🏻 ♂️

Thanks also for this info. This project(s) seems right up my alley, if I ever get time again for projects 🙄🔫
