This is sub #2. Don't miss this, it's a factory spec unit in as new operating shape. There's no better deal on a reference woofer to be found, and you're money is well spent on a ready to go unit. Come pick it up and enjoy!
One of the best woofers ever, and from a great name in speaker design, Paradigm. It was recently re-coned and re-baked (full disassembly and alignment of the entire magnet system). It also has the latest servo board, and is in very good shape otherwise. For shipping, well this is bog, and you'll need to purchase a new carton from Paradigm, and then par for all shipping expenses. Or come and collect it yourself in NYC. I tested it and it is a really excellent component. Deep and fast bass which remains tuneful throughout. The servo is also not so aggressive so as to cut off part of what you are listening to if it has a decay or very soft passage which still has bass in it. Probably one of the most musical out there. The page in the link is for this now discontinued woofer, so some info. is missing. Note the final pricetag!! The woofer driver is warrantied, you will get the receipt.
The finish and veneer is Cherry.
One defect on the cabinet will be dealt with before shipping.
Update: So i have been playing this woofer with a disc which has a lot of 25hz and below material. It really is a sublime experience for the bass lover. It reaches so deep and with 0 overhang. I be not heard it so good! If you have reservations about adding a woofer to your high end 2 channel rig, as i did, rest easy. This isn't like any other I have ever heard
