Audio Pro Ace-Bass Subwoofer B1.35, $75 shipped!!

Couldn't pass on this Vintage Swedish Audio Pro Ace-Bass Subwoofer B1.35!

Back in the early '80s, a golden eared bud that got me into this addiction had a smaller forerunner that sounded awesome. Not the SVS/HSU of my dreams but has a VERY high WAF compared to what I have not to mention simplifying my system a notch.

Now if I could get time to run that dedicated 20amp line...

Can't wait till Saturday!!

    Sounds great! So it doesn't go subterranean like SVSs or HSUs. Small-ish room, low ceiling, high WAF...

    I just discovered this sub's true model name is Evidence not B1.35. Still sounds awesome!

    Just PU an Audio Pro B1.39 from eBay, $100 shipped!

    In a 3 sub shoot out, it was the only sub to meet its published specs, 20hz f3, against larger, more powerful, higher priced competition. It ran around them in SQ, too.

    Took a little work to get it going. See my diyaudio thread, "Help?! B1.39 not for US consumption" for details.

    http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/subwoofers/308351-help-audio-pro-ace-bass-b1-39-not-us-consumption-2.html

    Will check polarity w/system tomorrow.

    Night, night. Tony

    Recently PU'd another Evidence sub, $100 shipped! I decided each Surround needed their own sub. Required another XO and, of course, some patient tweaking but well worth it.
