we don't/can't know. F 1000 is not a very good sub anyway, with at 950 your better bet is SVS PB1000 Pro
What makes it a poor sub? Aesthetics committee won't be pleased with a completely different looking sub

Potentially irrelevant note: mostly to be used for music. Not that much into action movies etc.

Edit: homecinesolutions confidential price is 748 EUR right now

It is not exactly poor, just not great. For similar size and price you have better options.

Sub is quite easy to place and hide. But if you have to, it is not the end of the world

I see that the SVS SB 1000 pro goes down 4 Hz lower (20 Hz instead of 24 Hz @-3dB), which is nice. Featurewise, I'm not really bothered as I'll be running my system from a miniDSP, providing sufficient options to manage bass.

If you have any information (comparison-wise) on differences in sound quality (sloppiness/distortion/...) I'd be interested to learn.

In all major Dutch DIY ( bouwmarkt) stores the acoustic pannels are on sale. I'm planning to spend 900 euro to optimize the living room instead of more equipment ( for now)

price is per pair. 549 is for two (otherwise it's not a sale ;) )
have two of these. they are packaged in one box, so if you can add one to cart, then it's a pair
That's an insane price! I got a black pair 2nd hand for 600 euro two months back.

Not really. That's 100€ too expensive for that period.

Producer Silentwood claims:
For the SilentWood acoustic interior panels we achieve full absorption (i.e. 1 αw) with 45mm mineral wool behind the panels at a frequency of 400-2000 Hz. This is with loud talking and regular noises. With 20mm mineral wool behind the panels we achieve approx. 0.6 αw.

(Dutch)

The version on sale seems to be the thinner one.

On the sad note, I guess we would never see deals from 2018-2020 again, when we often got 906s at about 400€, 948s at 1400€...
Dark Ebony at 490€ / pair at HCS !
The replacement line, Focal Vestia, is out, so they sell off what they have left. I'm not sure i should go for them now or wait a bit more, i could imagine another drop to 430-450€ soon.

BTW, shipping at HCS to Germany is 25€. You can pick express or regular shipping at the same cost. Express was delivered with DPD to me, sadly they have bad delivery times and service. Should i order there again, i make sure to use regular shipping, which is DHL.

The dark ebony is vinyl wrapped, the walnut is veneer and the black is high gloss laquer. That's why there's a price difference between the three.
And everybody knows that high gloss black has the best sound dispersion ( I'm just kidding)
