1961 Subwoofer 1V vs 1723 Subwoofer 1S

Different beasts, and different price points, yet the comparison is common. On the surface, the differences are obvious, but when it comes down to it, which is right for you?

The Similarities

In a word, value. These two subwoofers are packed with phenomenal performance-to-price ratios. Sure, they have different woofers and different amps, but identical design teams with the same goal, to maximize the value for cost ratio.

The Differences

Now here is the fun part because each speaker really excels in its own lane. While both designs are great for music, have immense mid-bass punch and more speed than any subwoofer should at their price points, the 1961 Subwoofer 1V goes deeper and can better wake your neighbors. It is the more “immediately fun” subwoofer for people seeking their first upgrade to a truly high-fidelity low-frequency pressure device.

The 1723 Subwoofer 1S can scare your neighbors too if asked to, no problem there. But where this reference subwoofer really shines is amongst higher fidelity components, in dedicated rooms, or to picky audio/cinephiles who seek, and can appreciate, a subwoofer that can effortlessly translate the layers and textures in a sound-mix all the way to your eardrums.

A Big Decision

So there you go, both are truly amazing designs that we are extremely proud of. The choice is up to you.
