Introduction to the Emotiva X-Ref 12 Subwoofer

Emotiva is a U.S. based Internet-direct manufacturer, known primarily for their high-power solid-state amplifiers. However, Emotiva makes other products, including three different lines of speakers, and several subwoofers. Their latest offering, the DSP-based X-Ref 12, recently hit the market at $699 (free shipping in the continental U.S.). Having only heard Emotiva subs at trade shows (less than an ideal environment), I was curious to find out how it would sound in my listening room.
