Despite the gears made in these Asian countries, the local selling price is actually a lot higher than what US folks are paying.

Output wise, the pb13u is similar with the 600W FV15hp. The Fv18 being a bigger driver, amp, enclosure, so I would expect it has at least +3db over the FV15hp. Note: The FV18 is a dual 3.5" port single tuned sub (12hz) unlike the FV15hp and the pb13u

I thought the FV15HP is dual 3.5" ports single tuned to 12hz?

^^ the FV15 is a multi tuned sub (12 or 18hz), the fv18 and the fv25 are just a 12hz tuned sub.

Oh sorry I misunderstood - to me this sounded like you were saying the FV18 is the one with dual 3.5" port single tuned to 12hz while the fv15hp and pb13u were not.

Note: The FV18 is a dual 3.5" port single tuned sub (12hz) unlike the FV15hp and the pb13u

I am guessing the FV18HP will be 4-5db more powerful then the FV15HP. The increase in displacement is going to be worth 2-3db and the increase in amp power is going to net 2-2.5db. So I am willing to bet the FV18 will be almost twice as powerful as the PB13 through most of the FR.

You could be right or real close with your guesstimate.

Here two preview pictures of H600XLR3 vs HX2000XLR3. I will update them with better resolution pictures very soon.





The two caps are 22,000uF/100V. We are also changing the Freq. from 14/20/28 to 12/14/18 to offer a more realistic usability.

Are those frequency changes only for the FV25?

Yes, for now. Brian will explain later the why behind this small change.

So if fv18hp use 1000w servo amp means equal to 1400w-1500w class d/ice power amp?

Official Rythmik Audio Subwoofer thread

Took the day off to setup and EQ the FV15HP. Hopefully it'll be arriving today as per UPS tracking! Although I'm starting to wonder if it's actually going to come today or not. I would have expected it would be out for delivery by now.

Does anyone know if the LV12R comes with 1 skateboard or 2? Just want to make sure I'm boxing it up how it came. So far I've got it in there like this.

Correct, it is just the 1.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Yes, and should you need the extra 6dB of input gain after using the MiniDSP 2x4 HD, you can use both LFE inputs.

@Rythmik , when do you plan on sending an FV18 to data-bass for testing? FV15HP has held the top spot for ported 15" subs for a long time. Would love to see how the 18" stacks up, especially since one of the most highly regarded 18" ported subs has been tested and holds the uncontested top spot.
