Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Subwoofer Reviewed

This is the first subwoofer that Outlaw has produced and it left listeners quite impressed. While it may look unassuming and blend in to your room well, it exhibited "excellent mid-bass and tremendous punch for the money." It is "well-built, attractive and capable of deep, detailed bass"

Outlaw_Audo_lfm-1_subwoofer_review.gifThe LFM-1 EX is the largest and most powerful subwoofer in the Outlaw Audio
product lineup.  While amazingly low-priced and sold Internet-direct,
this $599 subwoofer comes packed with a 12-inch-long throw driver
housed in a 21.5-inch-tall, 15-inch-wide and 22-inch-deep black
cabinet.  Internally, there is a 350-watt amp that can peak at much
higher levels when driven to its limits in short bursts.  The woofer
weighs a hefty 80 pounds and can remotely be turned off and on.

High Points
• Nobody should live without a "point 1" in their life and, at $600, Outlaw truly (and literally) delivers.
• The sonics of this woofer are off-the-charts for the money.
• The fit and finish is nicer than you might expect from an affordable subwoofer.

For those looking to do it really right, two Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EXs
allow for more even placement and smooth low bass response in the room,
without the need for the Federal Reserve to come in for an economic
bailout of some sort.Outlaw_Audo_lfm-1_subwoofer_review.gif

Low Points

•There is no room correction software in this sub of the type you will find with more expensive units.

Conclusion
The biggest bang for the buck in subwoofers might just be the Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EX. For the money, it's just hard to make an argument about how you can beat the performance for the price. While not dressed to kill like woofers costing twice (or more) the price, Outlaw provides a true low-frequency value that people are raving about in the home theater forums and on the pages of the best audiophile and home theater publications.
