Several of the clubs in my area use them and those of us who have an idea of what quality sound is (just compared to the drunk people in the club) have been disappointed with the sound of the products. Despite that, those subs definitely raise hairs and go quite low.

A number of folks here are familiar with Bassboss and would disagree with your opinion.

And they are certainly welcome to disagree! Again I donít mean to talk down about the system. Perhaps the people in my area are running it poorly, but thatís just been our opinion. I also am not in the position to spend almost $5,000 on 1 subwoofer.

I've not heard any of David Lee's products other than his subs but I'd be very, very surprised if his top boxes sounded bad when powered, processed and installed/used as BassBoss specifies.  Unless the well is already poisoned, I'd suggest you call David and ask him about what you've noticed and see if Owners Doing Stupid Shit could account for what you observed.

Pleasing drunk people pays the bills even if they flock to what you or I might think of as lousy sound.  I'd also be surprised if your dissatisfaction is with the subwoofers.  While not a "value" brand in the slightest, BassBoss generally outperforms or matches stuff with more highly regarded names and even higher prices.  Whether or not that represents a good investment for owners is a decision they have to make.

It is not the price of the cabinet that you should be concerned with.


But rather the price vs performance ratio.

As an example, would you rather have 1 cabinet that costs $5000, that outperforms 4 cabinets that cost a total of $5000?

Unless you are into "cabinet count" and that is all that matters (it is to some people), it should be the performance/dollar that is of greatest interest.

Now maybe you don't need $5000 worth of performance, maybe $1000 worth of performance is all you need.  If so, then a better quality cabinet is a waste of money.

With any loudspeaker, the fewer you can use to get the performance needed, the better it will overall perform.
