Funk Audio 15.0, 15.3, 18.0C and 18.1 Subwoofers Preview

Tower speakers and speaker bars tend to get the bulk of the attention when it comes to hot items in the home theatre world.  Subwoofers on the other hand usually stay hidden; tucked in the corner of some room where nobody can find them.  However, Funk Audio has been working on a line subwoofer that claims to offer class and style, as well as performance.
