Cadence CSX-15 Subwoofer

Introduction

I remember building my first home theater system many moons ago. I can still feel the agonizing pain of shopping for a subwoofer. Of all the components in my system it was the one item I obsessed over the most. Being the newbie that I was I had two basic requirements, big and loud. Over the years as my tastes refined I started to care less about size and subwoofers that go "boom" and began to care more about detail, finesse and accuracy. While I don't consider myself a subwoofer snob I appreciate good bass as much as the next man. Luckily for me there weren't many choices when I first got started, nowadays there are choices galore. Internet-direct and brick & mortar dealers offer a wide variety of options at a wide variety of prices. One can start to feel like a kid in a candy store. At the CSX-15's price $399.00, this sub has a chance to solidify itself as a value/performance leader. I was eager to see what it was capable of.
