SVS PC12-NSD VS Outlaw LFM-1EX

Hello all - I have an Elemental Designs sub that just died on me and am leaning toward replacing it with the PC12 or the LFM-1EX. Any impressions, reviews or opinions about these subs would be appreciated. Leaning toward the PC12 just for the footprint since on paper they seem to be pretty comparable. Any and all responses are welcome.

Thanks

Outlaw EX is only $599 shipped at the moment. Not sure how much longer that sale will last, but practically impossible to beat as a price/performance value

+1. I've owned a pair and they are excellent subs. At 599 shipped, you won't find a better commercial value.

Thanks for the comments so far. No PC12-NSD recommendations? Is the Outlaw winning out just for price/value right now since it's on sale or does anyone think it is a better performer?

Go to data-bass.com and look at the PB12-NSD review and measurements and compare it to the information on the Outlaw EX (click on the sub name for more information). The PC12-NSD apparently performs about the same as the PB12. You be the judge

Greetings,

I am currently using the PC12-NSD in system and have zero complaints. I haven't any experience with the Outlaw but its price point the SVS offers plenty of bang for the buck..
