Big difference between the two vehicles as you're asking the subwoofers to do the same thing, play down low where as a Miata and F-350 serve two completely different purposes. One does not consider a sports car when looking at a work vehicle and the equal and opposite, one does not look at work trucks when wanting a sports car. If I'm to take your comment in the literal sense, I'm to assume the Tuba HT is the pickup truck?
Out of respect, not knowing the history of the Tuba HT
and being under the impression this is one of your touted babies by "Tweedpower," I was hoping you'd have a recommendation based on your vast experience. Based on my limited consumer based research and experience, with aesthetics and sound quality "the" consideration, my price/quality/performance path goes from, in pairs, the SVS, PB12-NSD > Hsu, ULS-15 > Funk Audio, 18.0 C. Yes, I understand neither of these are folded horn designs but all succeed in getting generous amounts of energy into the lower end (16Hz - 20Hz), maintain a relatively flat EQ curve and have a flat response on the right side of the EQ curve. In my opinion, all of which are very important consumer based criteria.
There's are many consumer based reasons I increased our budget from a pair of PB12-NSD's to a pair of Funk, 18.0 C's and yes, it was a tough row to hoe. The point, I can't expect another to come to the same conclusions.
