    sorry didnt see the post on the 808.
    i was talking to brian ace from polk, he says the reason that polk stays with drivers not over 10" because any thing over 10 or 12" haves a overhang distortion from being to large it keeps moving wend it suppost to be at a rest the smaller drivers just make a cleaner sub.

    Joe, have to agree with that opinion. 12s and 15s are best left for the car guys (sorry, but automobiles have no acoustic quality).

    The aren't any 'RTi' subs, or 'R' Subs, why would there be an LSi sub? Just sayin', thats all.

    PSW is the entire sub line for Polk, makes sense to me.

    The Cherry side panels - seems to me lsi owners are what they are pushing.

    the looks of the psw-808 is the same and would match real good to the lsi line. polk haves another exhibit at one of the hotels, i will find out whitch and go to listen if they are demoing.

    me and horaico lalanne took a listen to the top of the line 15"earthquake subs, they had two playing at the same time with towers speakers, we where not that impress.

    the speakers with a real impressive bottom end was at the bryston exhibit, it is ( pmc ) speakers model mb1/ xbd, with 10" sub drivers. they absoluety blew every thing away. even the sound stage

    i know that mathew polk had a listen to then to he was there going to ea, exhibit i tryed to find him but didnt.

    every body that is important would not miss the bryston demo exhibit.

    the best sounding subs i heard at the ces was the james emb-1000 it a 10" multiplied forward-firing subwoofer frequency responce 20 to 150 hz +- 2db 25-150hz +- 0.5db thats the best specs. of any sub in the whole world.

    they sound clean and deep . its better than live
    the size of the cabinet is 12" H x 12" W x 14" D

    the polk 808 will have a hard time to equal these but at twice the price the polks will the ones to get,

    there is no demo for the 808 at the ces so i cant say how good they are, but they look good.
