It looks as if the sub will be included in the $22,000.00 price tag. [EDIT:] Update; the Subrosa sub is NOT included in with the price. That will set you back another 5K. The reviewer linked apparently received some bad information.

I believe Alex said earlier that the smaller tube amp for the show had mods that wouldn't be in the production models. Something about bob vetoing all but one I think.

The active tubed eq is still TBA.... The system was set up with (2) stereo eq's (one for the ribbons and one for the woofers) which then went through a Citation Pre-amp to add the tubey sound. It also gave bass, midrange, and high gain controls.

As far as the Subrosa, it is not included... It's an additional $5k, future models are said to have the Bob Carver LLC name on them rather than Sunfire.


Oh, did I mention that Angelo, James and myself are going to WA state?!? I still can't get my head around it!!!!! \:D/ \:D/

Ah, thanks for the clarification. The cat in that one review apparently was misinformed. He had mentioned that it was included. Thanks for nipping that one in the bud before the rumors spread too quickly.
