Let's put aside this sub's ability to rumble your guts with 2100-watts of peak, or 750-watts of continuous power. What really has the Giz going is the power knob that goes one through eleven. We don't need to hear it in person, nor do we care that it won't *really* give us an extra 10 percent of juice to fly with. We still love it, and hereby declare the obvious standard: 11 is the new 10.

Where was I? Oh yes, the sub, more about the interesting speaker config, and a photo after the jump...

The sub places three aluminum drivers, each with its own amp, at 120 degrees to each other. That theoretically cancels out cabinet vibrations that color sound with noise. The drivers are 10-inches across. $2,995 for all this glory.
