Actually the sweeps are higher as it does not care how much distortion is present. The burst are limited tests.

If you think the Triax is only capable of 110db you would be mistaken. I have yet to see a LTC sweep actually measure higher then max burst output simply because we are discussing long term power vs Short term max burst. So no that is not correct...Short term burst 99% of the time shows higher numbers even with distortion limited tests. CEA2010 max burst testing simulates source content, LTC testing is geared towards showing how well the sub is designed and holds up to abuse...that is why there are no distortion limits for that particular test.

I am just talking 10hz here, you can clearly see the Triax is NOT compressing with that sweep above the ULF region. It behaves like the Sub2 as compression is concerned, is there a limiter? Ricci usually disengages limiters when possible.

Ahh ok...I believe it is dsp limited.

This is the first time I can say: It's too loud.

No EQ, No Smoothing


128.6db with just 300watts
0.013% power of out 100% LOL

These nearfields kick some butt.
I've had nearfields in the past, but nothing like this.

130db+
How do you people withstand these SPL's without hearing loss? LOL!

Is that two of your Mal-X 21's, Bass?

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

Yep.
90% of the SPL is coming from just that one cone. LOL
They are stacked but the bottom one is further away and thus a lot weaker.
If I built a 2ft stand table I could have both up top covering 42inches of seats at well over 130db.

I don't even know what the max SPL is. I'm too afraid to find out! and this is a guy with 14+ subs talking, so you know it's loud: when... (LOL)

Nice! Me too. Although I am far limited in power at the outlet. Otherwise I might try. No need to trip the breakers if the situation is futile.

Got 14 18's myself, six of which will be nearfield.

Make sure you have them at head-height and facing forward, instead of on the ground; you'll gain 20db.

I could literally limit the power to 1000watts to that drivers and apply a crazy ULF-tard house curve to it to counter-react the nearfield response, which would turn it in to basically a ported-sub of sorts; but with extreme efficiency, output and cone control.
How deep I could make it go and how many db's I'd lose above 40hz I'm not sure; that's the trade-off though.

I think I might be able to force it down to 17-20hz because the 21 has a lot of excursion and displacement, which is the main limiting factor at those frequencies. Sheer brute-force might just work. I'll have to give it a try tomorrow.

Whatever the SPL I will get above 40hz would probably STILL be too crazy to withstand, so it's like: "who cares what it is, it's too-much is what it is". We aren't looking to burp +180db here, we are here to listen to music and movies instead. LOL!
