Lets say I don't like ANY subs i can manage to find in NZ coz my floor standing speakers can go lower than most of these

I am after HSU technology subs that go down to 10-15Hz

But I can't find these subs in NZ

How does one ship a couple of these beasts across the pacific and how much will it cost?

Something like that I should imagine is going to be pretty sensitive to being knocked around, damp, etc, as can happen during international shipping.

I would suggest you contact them as they've probably shipped these overseas before, and ultimately unless you have someone in the US to act as a broker, they will need to agree to whatever it is you come up with.

In my experience most US based companies couldn't give two hoots about shipping to other countries, too hard for too little gain, so -- good luck!

Also keep in mind that these aren't dual voltage. You'll need a transformer and a decent one at that...

They do sound like great subs though. Everything I've read has been positive.


EDIT: I'll retract that, it does seem that they now have 240v capable models, so thats a welcome change from a couple of years ago when I was shopping around. Great stuff!
