JL Audio's monster woofer

Remember how every stomp by the T-Rex in Jurassic Park caused a puddle of water to vibrate? Now you can replicate the same heart-pumping effects at home with the JL Audio Gotham G213 subwoofer. This no-holds-barred goliath packs a pair of oversized 13.5-inch drivers powered by a meaty 3,800W amplifier. That's easily more than three times the juice pumped out by an average A/V receiver found in Asia.

Unadulterated brute muscle aside, this beautifully crafted, glossy-black piece also has a built-in audio equalization function. Dubbed "ARO" or Automatic Room Optimization, it smooths out the sub's frequency response by compensating the acoustic signature of your entertainment room.

Sound almost perfect? Well, here comes the catch. The Gotham G213 has a ticket price of $11,000, measures almost a yard high and weighs nearly 360 pounds. That's one fat arse sub even if you have the spare change.
