A sealed sub (at least the Titanic Subs Kits from Parts Express) do not hit as low as say a VTF2/3, VTF3/3 etc. etc.) But the 15" Kit is flat
down to 30HZ (measured in room). Then it does roll of 3db from that point. If you are into music, the lowest bass notes are from bass
guitars at 35hz. Organs much lower. So Jay you are right about that part. The Dayton Titanic sub kits are ideal for someone who likes
sealed, smaller subs. I have four of them in a small 1425cu ft listening space. I have had many ported ones VTF1, VTF2/3, VTF3/3
and I always liked the sound of sealed. I know no one can figure out between ported and sealed subs in a listening test....but I think I can.
My subs are Dual sealed Epik Legends, and dual Parts Express Dayton Titanic 10" sealed subs. I like the sound better than the VTF3/3 (w turbo sometimes)
and MBM-12 mid bass module. The Legends go down to 20hz and sound great to me. Same with the Titanic subs.
Of course I have shakers, and it does add to the bass experience. You just have to know where to place the shakers, and what amp to use.
The only reason I mentioned the Part Express 15" Dayton is it's tremendous bass output and clean levels at that output. It's highly underrated.
It's never gonna go as low as a HSU VTF-15H but the Dayton with the shakers is mighty impressive for some people, YMMV
