Haha, yeah! Provoked thoughts...its a good day.

If you're worried about shaking the house, might I recommend a smaller sub such as the JL Audio...LOL! I kid...sort of. But seriously, the S1 and even the DIY option I posted are powerful subs and could shake things in the house...and you'll love it. The key is to get the significant other involved early if that is in the picture. But with a concrete room, it is hard to say how the bass would travel in your house.

Well for Cap money, I could do a lot of dual setups (ie 2x VTF15H mk2). Maybe I'd add another Cap in the future, but it wouldn't be anytime soon. Thanks for the info though. I'll have to revisit this thread soon when funds have been allocated.

There is no way to stop the house from shaking with subwoofers since the bass waves are large and long.

These drivers almost look identical to the Epik Conquest drivers. If I didn't have a pair of Conquest's, I would absolutely purchase a pair of these.

There are a few highend subwoofers using that 6 spoke basket however this driver is completely custom for JTR. When it comes to drivers the t/s parameter is what matters so even though some drivers may look similar they won't share a single t/s parameter.

$3K to get your orbit shifted. The dream for those who can slip it past the WAF.
